Okay, so I am about to open a topic that I would really like some feedback and honest responses.
I hope by posting this thread it may create some positive introspection about the "generation" or "age" gap between our younger adult and older adult members.
-- Let me first start by asking, how many of you expect to continue wearing diapers into your adult, adulthood?
"Wait a minute", you say. "What are you talking about? What is an adult, adulthood?"
I am referring to many of the under 40, under 30, or even under 20 crowd who seem to think that the desire to wear diapers is something that only "young" people might be interested in, and perhaps without meaning to, seem to stereotype those who are older into some type of other (perhaps more derogative) category. Without pointing fingers or giving quotes from posts viewed here, sometimes those who are adult (older than 30), adults on this site seem to get stereotyped into a category that sometimes has a negative connotation.
I have to admit, when I was younger, I used to think that perhaps I would grow out of my desires to wear diapers. I couldn't imagine being over 30 and wearing diapers. Well, let me tell you, that period has come and gone, and the desire is still there.
So, I challenge each of you folks who are under 40, under 30, or even under 20 to ask yourself:
- "What am I going to be doing when I am 30?"
- "What am I going to be doing when I am 40?"
- "Am I still going to be wearing diapers?"
- "Will I still want to talk to others who share in this interest?"
- "Will I still want to be a member on Adisc or a similar site?"
Being an adult (older than 30) adult who likes to wear diapers, I think this has earned me a little bit of authority on this subject.
I understand the difference between age gaps of different generations. I mean come on, how many of you when you when you were teenagers would have ever thought that your parents would have liked to wear diapers? Really, adults wearing diapers? Who knew?
It is often difficult to relate oneself to someone who is perceived as a different generation. Sometimes communication is much different than between other individuals who are of the same era. It is often hard to conceptualize that those of an earlier generation has the same thoughts that we might have. I get that.
However, I hope that as members here on this site, who all share in this same "strange" interest, that we can be cognizant that this interest expands beyond any specific age. Those who are younger adults will eventually be in the above 30, above 40, above 50 themselves.
What are your thoughts on this? I would really like to hear from everyone of all generations and ages.
