Do you use the term “diaper” when referring to them?
Dear ADISC’s members,
The term “diaper” is stigmatized in our society. It is always used for babies, but nearly never for adult. On adult diaper package, the word is replaced by: absorbent products, disposable absorbent undergarments, disposable briefs, protective underwear, disposable absorbent underpants and other (Source: ISC Home Page). We can make the same observation on ADISC.org:
But baby’s diapers and adult diapers aren’t supposed to be the same thing? They have a different purpose?“Molicare is a brand name of adult disposable incontinence briefs produced by Medline Industries, Inc.”
(Source: Molicare - ADISC Answers Wiki)
Adults do not accept that they must wear diaper, they don’t want to be on the same level as a baby: impotent.
No, diaper is a diaper! Let’s not be hypocrites or ashamed.
What is your opinions on the subject?
