When you say "hubby," you make us all look bad. And by "us," I mean cogent, thoughtful human beings with small shreds of dignity.
Saying "hubby" is not similar to talking all sweet-like to your cat. It is not like giving your dog or your car or your favorite pair of shoes a funny nickname. Your husband is a person. He may be your muffinwuffin, your bearman, your hunkaburninlove, and even your "hubby," but when you are talking about him to anyone other than an empty room or your own empty brain, he has a name and/or an actual noun--"husband"--that will suffice.
If only nutty family values people could see: gay marriage is not the bane of the American family. The word "hubby" is a far more insidious threat to our cultural well-being.
