  1. “In its exaggerated passivity and vulnerability, the cute object is often intended to excite a consumer’s sadistic desires for mastery and control as much as his or her desire to cuddle.”
    (http://delirioushem.blogspot.com/search/label/Gurlesque)

    Hence the simultaneous urge to snuggle cute animals and squeeze them until they DIE. I know for a fact I’m not alone in this.

  2. Also: “Cuteness, then, reveals a state of deformity or monstrosity.”

    I had been thinking about cuteness in poetry in an entirely different way, as a combination of sweetness and sincerity– kind of the opposite of what’s being said here, haha. I guess it can go either way. Not all cuteness is manufactured for a consumer, e.g. kittens. Maybe you could say they evolved cute in order to provoke the response above (mastery, control, cuddling) so that someone would protect them and they would have a better chance for survival, like they say about human babies. Human babies, okay, kind of deformed, but kittens? God, I want a kitten.
