So today being my birthday my mother took me to her apartment - I have actually been constantly sick since Christmas so I haven't been there since before I went with my father to his home for the holidays (my parents separated permanently when I was a teen, although they will never go through the hassle of a divorce). The TV programs were full of crap today which is unusual, but then again I'm usually there Thursdays, not Saturdays. We quite accidentally came across a program, called Mr. Young, that featured an adult baby out with his Mommy. He'd had his bottle and she was burping him, and in that process he suddenly spewed out a massive amount of milk that I would hesitate to think came from just one bottle. I was like "OH MY GOD THIS IS SO OVER-THE-TOP!" and seeing that show kind of made me briefly discuss with my mother the "reality" of being abdl. I told her that when it comes down to it, you're only going to truly understand the concept, and see abdlism for what it truly is, if you're a member of the abdl community. Outsiders usually just can't stomach the idea and would normally be happy to laugh at a show like Mr. Young, and wouldn't even WANT to understand the truth....although there obviously are exceptions. But when I saw Mr. Young, he truly struck me as someone who belonged in a mental health ward because the abdlism was portrayed EXACTLY like that, to give outsiders that idea. In real life that's not the way we are. Others may think of us as having issues that we should go to a shrink for, but a lot of us use abdlism as an escape from our stressful adult lives. For us, a lot of the time "conventional" stress relief isn't effective. When I rediscovered pacis, I immediately felt "this is what is going to work, this is what I was denied and that's why de-stressing was so difficult for me in the past!" In toddlerhood it is said I gave up the paci "for good" when I had a cold. But I will be buying more soon, because before I got sick at Christmas I LOVED my Baby Bop paci!
But really, has anyone seen this ridiculous ABDL show on TV? If you have, do you agree it is over-the-top and a completely unfair portrayal of abdlism?
