I saw some great entries here a few years back about the history of the ABDL subculture. Now I'm trying to search for it and coming up blank. Any suggestions about finding those old threads?
The story I've been told is that there were three guys in AB outfits who ran into each other at Mardi Gras in New Orleans back in the seventies. They quickly realized that this was more than just silly costumes and they connected. Their conversation lead to starting DPF (Diaper Pail Fraternity - later Diaper Pail Friends).
There was some interesting information on this site about the growth of our group. I think this is important, and I'd love to collect some of the accounts.
Of course, there's ABDL activity going back to mythology, but the American boys who actually cracked this thing open are heros, and they deserve some kind of acknowledgement.
