I've been thinking about "coming out" as a DL, and I thought it could be nice to have a thread, or better, an article about how to be yourself with regards to being AB/DL. IF this thread goes well, it would be helpful to have it converted into an article.
I'll explain more how I mean "be yourself". I think there are many steps into "coming out", more so than coming out as gay for example, as this is something the majority of people know nothing about; and even googling can come up with strange results, if you do not know the keywords.
For coming out, I see there being three main steps:
- The first step is acknowledgement of yourself. I like diapers. There, I said it.
- Then there's a second step... binge/purge... The acceptance step maybe?
- Then there's a third, coming out...
Feel free to correct that if you wish..
The question I have is, how can you "come out" totally?
I do not mean "wear diapers all the time", but more "I wear diapers when I want, some people noticed and those that do I explain, and I'm cool with it".
I really want to come out as DL, but I feel no reason to tell people. I want to just wear and not have to explain myself. I could also do with some answers to common questions.
How do you see the path to coming out as AB/DL?
What answers would you have about how to come out?
How do you "explain yourself" without sounding like a creep?
