My mother has known about this for a long time now. I never really could build up the courage to talk to her about this. My mother was always a vanilla thinking person. She didn't seem like a person that would understand. From what happened last night made me wish I explained about it to her a lot earlier. Her assumptions kind of hurt me and I can't really blame her for me not talking about it at all.
Last night I received a text message from my mother saying, "You should watch what diaper websites you go to." (She has never said anything regarding Infantilism) I really didn't know what she was talking about at first. With North shore giving free samples on no notice, maybe that is what I thought she was talking about. I was embarrassed to talk to her about it so I didn't reply to it. Then she says, I think they are watching you, for child pornography. It turns out that the local law enforcement had made some busts for child pornography rings in the area.
I got pretty upset and was kind of angry. I asked her if she really thought I was a pedophile. She said no, but that text said differently. Well I Had to talk to her about this. Her assumption, of my attraction to diapers, was that it was pedophilia. I Had to set her mind away from that assumption. I explained to her about how I want to "be" the child, and that this never involved any children at all.
I sent her the link to "Understanding Infantilism" hoping she would read it. This morning she said she had read it saying she loves me no matter what. I still don't know what she thinks of me or what's expected when I see her next time. I hope she really did read in to it and has a better understanding. I'm kind of happier now, or feel a lot lighter on my shoulders because I was finally able to talk to someone about it and explain.
Saying this, I'd like to encourage people to talk to people who know but was never explained to about it. Because the media shines a very negative light on us and leaves those people thinking irrationally about the subject simply because they don't know about it. They end up relying on those negative lights and they begin assuming the worst and misfortune things about it.
Anyone else ever go through something like this? Can you share your experience?
