Hello and Happy New Year!
I've been visiting your site for about half a year now and I have finally worked up the courage to sign up and post an introduction. The mature and fair-minded attitude expressed by this community is impressive. I think that having a place to discuss these kinds of feelings in an honest and level-headed way is invaluable.
For as long as I can remember, I've wanted to wear diapers, have baby things, and be treated like a little child. It makes me feel like I can be myself without fear, shame, or judgement and it makes me feel loved and secure. Many of you have described this feeling as "unconditional love"; I completely agree. :3
I've felt that I could not share these feelings with anyone else, though. Most of my life I've repressed it and I've always hidden it. I've matured though stages of shame and fear to an understanding and acceptance of this as a valuable and worthy part of who I am.
However, I'm very shy and I've been a victim of what some of you have called the "danger of social isolation" for most of my life. However, I've made a New Year's resolution to be a little less fearful, to open up, and to live life a little more.
So here goes...
In addition to being an AB, I've always liked to pretend to be animals. I guess that makes me a furry...or more specifically...babyfur. I decided a couple of years ago that I my "fursona" is a Fox-Bunny (I'm sort of a hybrid) since I have the shyness of a bunny but I can also be clever like a fox. I most-often emphasize my bunny side though.
My nickname is Bunny. I saw that another newbie posted that same nickname a little while ago; so I guess you can call me Kits. Just add me to the list of AB rabbits. ^_^
I like cartoons and anime, especially movies by Disney and Ghibli. I also really like some of the home-made ABDL and Furry fanart that I've seen on the web, especially the work by TaviMunk. I would love to make some art myself, but my attempts have been very discouraging :P
I am fascinated by science and love to learn all sorts of scientific facts. Science describes the discernable world we live in and analysis of it elucidates many phenomena. (Geeky enough for ya?) Unlike most people, I don't find many conflicts between science and religion.
Likewise, I enjoy nature and like to learn about plants and animals. I also appreciate nature photography, especially those that emphasize the power and wilderness of nature; although I'm not a photographer myself.
I also love gothic/medieval fantasy. That sort of fantasy just seems to inspire a spirit of wonder and adventure in me; it's fun to pretend that the world still has some magic in it.
I am an occasional reader but I'm picky about what I read. A good book can be the best entertainment but it has to feel right to me or it isn't worth the investment of time.
I'm also an avid video game player. The games I enjoy the most are in the RPG and shooter genres, although I occasionally enjoy strategy and puzzle games.
Well, I suppose that's me in a nutshell. I'm excited about joining your community and I hope to get to know some of you as well.
