So, starting Halloween of last year, I used my "baby" costume to come out to a few close friends of mine about being an AB. Over facebook group messenger, I explained the costume to them and I gave them the best explanation that would help them understand where I was coming from.
It went over pretty well, but two of the ten people I told, come to find out, they weren't all that crazy about it, although they didn't mention anything to me, they at least respected me enough to keep it between the people I told and not share the information with anyone else. I got nervous but I didn't lose my head over it and decided to close the facebook conversation.
Not to be fully discourage and backed by the remaining friends who actually thought it was wonderful, I came up with the idea to make a secured facebook page for my "baby" persona and came up with a plan to tell *ALL* my close friends and co-workers about it. By secure, I mean, the profile seen from the outside is a bunch of non-sense and you cannot see the content unless I A. Invite you and B. Set you to close friend.
One by one I began to take my time with each invited person and so far, I'm just over 40+ people and the responses I've gotten over the past two months has been nothing but positive, in fact, one even apologized that I had to hide it for so long, which threw me for a loop like, wait, what?
In closing, I've explained to each and everyone of them that it isn't easy for us to come out with such information because really A. There's no real reason to, at least none I could ever come up with other than the fact that even though it's my own personal business, I hate feeling like I have something to hide and B. Most people won't take the chance because they have so much to lose.
The common response I always seem to get is, if they're your "true" friends, then it should never matter. They are actually proud of me for having the guts to share such a personal thing with them.
On a funny note, out of 42 people and growing, Not one and I mean, NOT ONE has asked me YET if I actually use the diaper lol.
Anyway, just wanted to share that with you all.
Note: I'm not endorsing anyone to do what I did, I'm just merely sharing my experience.
