Hi friends, what a day!
I bought the You magazine today, for those you don't know about South Africa, the You magazine is our biggest weekly magazine, and everybody talks about the articles in there.
Imagine my shock when i got to the tills, with my wifes gran, who was buying baby diapers for my wifes sisters little one.....
The cashier says 'Did you read about the man who wears nappies?', she then points to the front page and there is a huge title that reads 'Exclusive first interview!-Adult Baby Syndrome!
She turns to page six which is the first article and immediately starts the attack about what a freak he is, and my wifes gran said he is a mentally disturbed man.
Of course thats what the cashier expected us to say.
She then looks at the baby diapers and says 'Are those for you?'
And she tries to get a reaction out of me.
I was calm, but very upset about this and i had to hide any suspicion about me.
I feel like a traitor to the ABDL community, because i would have loved to say, ' No because those diapers wouldn't fit me, but they are nice though.....'
I just couldn't reveal that side of me.
She then said she is gonna watch for adults buying adult nappies(This shop happens to stock many brands including Molicare), and my first thoughts were, OMG now everybody in the F@@@@ing country is gonna watch when adults buy adult nappies.
My thinking is of those who are not old and seem heathy, and the embarrassment now of going to buy them.
This magazine is huge and i cannot possibly explain the huge implications of being an ABDL in South Africa.
I now understand why Stanley and others were persecuted for revealing their secret side to the world and its implications to the rest of the ABDL community.
I read the article and the man is quite a decent bloke.
He is a foreman to 20 people, he teaches karate, he drinks with his friends at braai's(barbeque's) and seems quite sociable.
He is also a father to two primary school kids.
He wears a disposable diaper under his jeans everyday, so i wonder if he reveals that to people....
I checked his page quickly and many people have been asking him to take his kids away, because they reckon he is an unfit parent.
He has a website he is starting for those in SA called adultbabies.co.za.
What i find most interesting is that he knows 10 other infantilists in SA who between them know 100 others.
He said he reckons there are approximately 1000 ABDL's in SA.
He thinks his ABDL is a disorder, because he said having a disorder doesn't make you a bad person.
I like the guy, but im personally not happy with the fact he came out about this.
This country is VERY conservative, and people could easily be killed over this.
Hell, even gays and lesbians have been murdered for their sexuality in SA.
My head is spinning, and i would love to hear from fellow South Africans or even you good fellow forumites if this was a good idea?
Perhaps the man who appeared in this magazine is a member here on Adisc.
I would like to know after everything that seems to be happening to him after
many readers hear of the existence of ABDL for the first time, if it was in fact worth it?
I dread going to buy diapers now......
I would love for you guys to read the article, but im not sure if it would infringe on the publication, without permission.
