I can trace my interest in diapers back to when I was in third grade. Although it took until I was in college to buy and wear. At first I was ashamed and super shy about wearing and wanting a binkie and a bottle. I do have a sissy side and I was ashamed about liking to wear panties and bras and girly things. Now that I have embraced and accepted who I am, I have never felt more relaxed and comfortable. I have no problem buying diapers or girly items in person, although for the best diapers I order online. I think it is of the utmost importance for all of us to remember that if we are being true to ourselves there is nothing to be ashamed about. Ignorance from others comes from an unwillingness to accept. People often forget that acceptance doesn't mean agreeing. It's sad that we are judged for being ourselves, but together we are strong and supportive! The true meaning of community. I hope one day everyone will be able to achieve the level of comfortness that I have. Be true to you!!!
