Thread: Why does it seem AB/DLs are mostly white people?

  1. #1

    Default Why does it seem AB/DLs are mostly white people?

    I don't know if this is politically correct to talk about at all, but it's just an observation I've had. I'm a member of a few facebook-like sites where AB/DLs share pictures, blogs, messages, etc. and you would think these sites would be an accurate representation of our community, as they clearly have members from many different countries; but the overwhelming majority are white people from the U.S. and western Europe... Why is this?

    Not saying I've never met AB/DLs of other races, it just really seems like proportionally there should be more. Only about 20% of the world's population is white.

    This site is an English speaking site. There are plenty of other ABDL forums in other languages. I've been to a Spanish speaking forum before. This is not the first time this has been discussed. It seems that our numbers can be skewed due to the audience this site attracts. I myself am half Cuban half Mexican.

    I have no impute on this subject, but i'll support you by saying that you have a very interesting question. It would be interesting to find out if Ab/Dl'sm is predominately a Caucasian thing.

    There have been several threads on this subject already but generally, the reason you see more white AB/DLs is that the online exposure you get to AB/DLs comes from primarily, if not exclusively, English-language websites. Since Caucasians make up the majority of the population of many English-speaking countries, you're statistically more likely to see white AB/DLs than you are to see AB/DLs of other races.

    I'm going to go with Mandy's stance. Communities tend to be self-selecting. The self-selection criteria here are English-speaking and diaper wearing. The former results in our membership being generally American, Canadian, and Western European. All three populations have white majorities (the latter two to a much greater extent). So in any case, we should be expecting a large majority of our membership to be white.

    I believe I've read studies that internet pornography use is statistically much, much higher among white men than it is among any other ethnic or gender group. Yet enjoying sex is something that exists across those lines. I wouldn't be surprised if the same exists for diapers: that they distribute across gender and ethnic differences, but white males are predominantly the individuals whose desires drive them to the internet. Also, considering that being gay is far more stigmatized among non-white communities, I wouldn't be surprised to learn that other weird sexual practices carry the same taboo.

    lol, I feel like an idiot for not thinking about that. There is one site I know of that's in English and French and it does seems slightly more diverse than most others.

    You also have to remember that outside of first world countries (canada, US, Western Europe, austrialla, and a few others) people don't have the money to get diapers, pacies, and other baby stuff.

    Probably has to do with the culture.



    Do Native Americans count as a race?
    If you can check it off on the bubble sheet then the US government counts it.
