Am I Being Unreasonable?

Here's how picky I am when it comes to fanfic (or any story, really.) I'm reading along, it's pretty good, not amazing, but good. Nice pacing, characters are spot on, dialog is snappy, then one of the guys (Blaine Anderson, specifically, a 17 year old guy for anyone else who doesn't recognize that name) calls his mother MOMMY.

I ask you. Mommy? I don't like it when my own kids call me mommy, because they're teens. I hate infantilization of language for anyone that isn't, you know, an infant. ETA: Context is HERE. We're talking about a 17 YEAR OLD BOY specifically.

Poll #1752621 USING THE WORD MOMMY
This poll is closed.

Anyone that is in or beyond puberty saying MOMMY is:

totally weird.
43(43.4%)
a little strange, but I'm not put off by it.
29(29.3%)
I'm completely indifferent to the usage.
11(11.1%)
I think it's a little sweet.
11(11.1%)
WHY WOULD YOU CALL HER ANYTHING ELSE SHE IS MOMMY FOR EVER AND EVER!
5(5.1%)
perfect - I still breastfeed, too. And I'm 23.
0(0.0%)


DID YOU SEE THE CONTEXT I LINKED RIGHT BEFORE THE POLL OR WERE YOU ALL: TICKY BOX! Just checking. ;)

Like when Gwenyth Paltrow won her Oscar in that ill-fitted pink princess dress and thanked her "daddy." No. Daddies, when you're that age, are old men who visit you on the pole and bring you sparkly things.

I CAN'T BE ALONE ON THIS ONE. ...can I?

(Off topic, but the Glee recaps have begun - with cocktail recipes and a drinking game! - and Mel's Bachelorette recap is up as well. That show is CRACK. Whitney Houston crack. And I made a Whitney BOB-BAY! joke in my RHoNJ recap that no one caught and I have a sad.)
