What is about a man with a baby? Or playing with a dog?

Was catching up on Grey’s Anatomy last night when I saw the episode that resulted in this image:

How cute are they? Seriously. Makes me smile every damn time I  look at it. Also makes me feel something else all together. *sigh*

When I first saw the scene I had two reactions…1) I think my uterus skipped a beat (despite by plans on having no children) and 2) what is it about women and seeing a guy with a baby? Then one of the characters on the show brought up that same topic about men with babies (or men with dogs) and how appealing that image is for most women.

So I’m curious what you guys think. Why is it women find a guy with a baby so damn sexy? Is it pure biology working there? And is it just women? Do any gay men find other men with babies just as damn sexy as many women do? Or how about a guy with a dog? And are there any women out there who don’t find they are “inspired” by a guy holding a baby?

I’m curious…what do you guys think?
