I'm new to the ABDL community, and I've been wondering if being in one community has led to the other for some people?
I've been a furry practically all my life, but only really figured out what it was around mid high school. I think it's safe to say that my interest in diapers is deeply rooted with my early childhood, so Im pretty sure it came first. It only really started to manifest after developing a watersports kink.
For me I'd say being a furry and DL developed independently, but then came together after finding out about diaperfurs. That showed me that even in this already eclectic community, there are people who are into this as well, and that it's okay :3
Openly saying (on the internet) I'm a DL though is still new and not trying to actively repress these thoughts and feelings sure is new too, but it feels great
