babe, baby, sunshine, little lady. I dont mind calling/being called pet names by people Im close tobut everyone else can fuck off.
This is particularly one of my issues. It’s not that I mind pet names. But they should be reserved for people close to me. I call people darling and dear a LOT but it’s people who actually are dear to me. And I say it as a sign of love, not as a form of misogyny.
