Why are people assuming I’m the spitter outer?

I understand why one might do it, but I have an instant revulsion to it.

Once food goes in the mouth, it is unclean, either way it comes out won't change that in my mind.

I can pretend to be scientific and say that belief is anchored in preventing the spread of hep A, but it's not, just an icky feel in my subconcious based on how I was brought up probably around toddler time.

Which actually raises a question to the OP, if you saw a baby or toddler spit some food up because they didn't like it, then try to eat it again, would you stop them?

I assume you're looking for validation with the poll, and as the default seems to be "ew that's gross", if you were the spitter outer complainer you wouldn't seem to need that validation.

I don't think it's any more gross than tongue-kissing another human. But... it's also not really something I want my coworkers doing in a shared microwave.

Um, this is essentially all of "solid food" feeding to babies. You give them a bite, they spit it out, you swipe it off their chin with the spoon and feed it back to them until it actually goes in instead of out. Their tongues don't work "right" to start.

It's definitely gross, but if we didn't do it, we might as well just dump the baby food on them and take them straight to the bath

What is this you are eating that's so horrible to be consumed cold? I guess a hot meal that is still fridge temp would be pretty bad, but I'd put that bite in the trash.
I agree with that, but there are lots of gross things people do in private. So I'd say if it's only okay if you are home by yourself, then yes, it's gross.
