So I have come to notice that there are a few AB/DLs that have kids, and try to keep their secret away from them. At the same time, however, there are a few rare instances where the TB/DLs have their parents accept them and buy for them, while others find out their parents are AB/DLs just like them. Some might think this is leaning towards the possibility that interests like this are somehow genetic.
For most of us here we found out what we enjoyed at an early age, developed the interest over our teenage years, and then acted on it in our late teens/early twenties. So my question is, for those who have kids or those who want kids, would you/do you look for signs of these specific interests? Keep in mind I am not suggesting forcing such an interest on them, or manipulating them into it, but asking if you are keeping an eye out for 'symptoms' of a *B/DL. And if you found out, would you risk your current relationship/secretive status to help them with it by buying for, supporting, or simply offering advice?
Several users here strive for acceptance, even if it is only from one person they physically know. Technically speaking, it takes an experienced generation to change the cultural perception of a population. Maybe we could be that experienced generation, and by nullifying the stigma of our subculture with future generations, specifically any of our own kids, we could see a dramatic change in later generations.
Personally when I have kids I will be a nosey parent by default because I want to make sure my kids don't hit the wrong path hard. If I do notice any signs, and confirm that they have taken up similar interests, I would first offer acceptance and support, and see where it goes from there.
Tell me what you think. Could we help shape future culture by openly accepting our future generations for their interests; not just for *B/DLs but for other things such as our Fur-Friends in the forms below?
