Adult babies and diaper lovers have always been faced with a stigma from the general public because of the relationship between diapers and babies. People automatically associate that because a grown adult enjoys wearing diapers or just wears diapers in general that they are some how associated with a child. This stigma has cursed the ABDL community since the inception of the community. Websites and TV shows have portrayed the community mainly in a negative light without even trying to understand the truth behind the reality of the mindset of adult babies and diaper lovers. There are the select few like there are in any group of people that are going to give a group a bad name but it does not represent the majority mindset among a community. I understand that TV and websites only portray the exaggerated aspect of the ABDL community because that is entertainment and by degrading others it makes the viewers feel superior and more powerful which in turn leads to them watching the show or reading the web page because they can sit there and feel better about themselves while looking down upon others.
In reality, every single person has a kink or something strange about them that others will find different that could range from normal to some people to perverse to others. It is all judgment. In the case of adult babies and diapers lovers, the reality is that many people find comfort, plewp_e, security, fun, enjoyment, and some sexual gratification along with other emotions and feelings mixed in. This is the reality of the ABDL community. The fact is that there is a businessman working on Wall Street this very moment (probably a bunch of them) that enjoys cross-dressing or finds it gratifying both emotionally and sexually to dress up in leather and beaten with a whip and chains by a woman or man and yet they are the same people judging others because they enjoy wearing diapers or judging others because they enjoying acting young again. This is hypocritical and sad honestly and speaks worlds about the mindsets of people.
Bondage, foot fetishes, and even gay sex has become mainstream where it might be looked at as different but certainly not ridiculed as much as adult babies and diaper lovers. The reality is that nobody takes the time, whether in the media or websites, to try and understand what really goes on in a fetish/interest like adult babies and diaper lovers. Instead, they pass it off as too strange. When in reality, I can absolutely guarantee you that 80% of people who tried on an adult diaper would enjoy the feeling or not mind it. Obviously, it would take an adjustment period but in the end I can almost guarantee you that 80% at least of people would enjoy it and feel a certain level of comfort and security in them among other things.
I am sure there will be not only adult babies and diaper lovers reading this article but also you “other” people who are not part of the community. For those “other” people, think about in these ways: what if your best friend enjoyed wearing diapers…are they automatically “sick” and “nasty” and you don’t trust them anymore because of this even though you have known them for forever? Or, think about your own kink/fetish/unusual interest and think of if your boss or friends found out about it…would you want them to automatically jump to conclusions about you in every possible aspect of your life? And finally, realize that there are millions of people around the world that enjoy wearing diapers (yes, millions) and do you think they are all bad as well as what do you think the likelihood is of there being someone who enjoys wearing diapers around you (pretty significant chance)? Like I said, the reality is the stigma of the adult babies and diaper lovers; if people can get past the stigma and realize the majority population of the ABDL’s mindset and reasons then the stigma dissipates and understanding can begin just as with so many other things in history that have become more mainstream and accepted with stigmas such as homosexuality..
