@OhMarie I'd go with 'Flub', which would be short of 'Mother Flubbin Kitten'. Otherwise names that reference fuzziness or smallness or a combination thereof.

ETA: And I can never have a kitten, so that name is forever free for the taking.

@coolallison Oh I am counting down the minutes. Your list is banging, in particular #3 and #4. :) I'm camping this weekend, which I should add to my list, because it will be nice to be out among the trees and rocks (really, it's just humanity that is on my shit-list right now).

@adorable-eggplant I just thought of one more thing: margaritas.

@stonefruit It's the same for objections to catcalling: the response is always something like, "I'm calling you a hottie, shut up or pretend to enjoy it." And when people try to explain that even for people who do fit the face-of-the-future hazel-eyed mould this kind of stuff is insulting and degrading, there's always a backlash. Don't get it? Fine, sorry you cannot have some basic empathy.

@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) Cannot wait, I'm having a tough day, so the best I can come up with is whiskers on kittens. Those are nice. Everything else? Not nice.

@up cubed DDDDDDDDDDDDDDD....: (those are frowny faces + tears, I cannot even with this fetishizing of mixed identities)

ETA: And it's all so so people can smuggly pat themselves on the back for being 'accepting'.

THANK YOU SO MUCH. "And maybe it's good that people keep writing pieces like this, so impossibly shallow and shortcut-minded that the subtext is clear as anything: look how nice we look, as a people, when white gets to be more interesting and minorities get to look white. Look at this freckled, green-eyed future. Look at how beautiful it is to see everything diluted that we used to hate." So much this. Just so freaking much.

@large__marge The capricorn in my life is also getting ready to graduate. I really hope this part is on the nose: "If before you stands a straight shot to whatever love is, then step forward, Capricorn, and claim it."
