The Desire to Squeeze and Hug Cute Things Comes From the Same Place In Your Brain As Aggression
Have you ever seen a puppy walking down the street that was so cute it compelled you to go down on your knees to squeeze it? Or a baby so adorable you were forced to pinch its cheek and squeal “you’re so cute I could just eat you right up”? These are both examples of average reactions to what is universally deemed as cute, however it is plain to see that there is some underlying aggression to these actions, i.e. squeezing, pinching, and vocal desires of flesh consumption.
