Lately I've been thinking more extensively about diaper wearing, and specifically about what the general non-diaper-wearing public knows or might care about. I wear diapers regularly for urge incontinence, and I will change my diaper during the day whenever and wherever necessary. I'm very discreet and I do not wish to call attention to the fact that I wear diapers, but at the same time, I'm not ashamed of it at all. I know there have been times when other people in a public restroom could have seen me in a stall changing myself... but then I think... Who would REALLY look? THAT would be creepy, not the fact that a grown man is changing his diaper in the stall.
Anyway, my point is that while I'm private and discreet, I also would like the public to know that people like me exist. I do not "look" like someone who needs to wear diapers... I'm young, athletic, active, and not disabled. I am not the stereotype of what people might think of an adult who wears a diaper. So if someone sees that I wearing one, I hope it would educate them in a way... that they would think... "Hmmm, that young, 'normal-looking' guy is wearing a diaper. I guess some people like him must have to." This is what I would like them to think, as opposed to... "Jeez, who's that sick pervert changing his diaper in the bathroom?"
Do any of you think along these lines? Even those of you who are just DLs, I'd love to hear what you think about the general social awareness of adult diaper wearers.
