I have read numerous of forums were someone pleads for help on getting there spouse to understand there infantile needs. Most seem to end up in divorce because there spouse sees it as a fetish and wants nothing to do with it.
Once someone sees something as a fetish. They don't want to know anything else about it and trying to convince them otherwise is almost if not imposable. To them it's a fetish and thatís all they want to know about it.
As long as we continue to see and call infantilism a fetish. The public will not be willing to understand. This includes our spouses and family members. I do not see infantilism as a fetish. I see it as our way of coping or dealing with stress, loneliness etc.
my wife sees infantilism as a form of regression. She agrees it is not a fetish.
Another area that makes it hard for the public to except AB's is when all the public sees are AB fully dressed up as babies. This can be too much exposure adding to the fetish perception.
