Not sure where to post this but I got into a long hour and a half conversation with a friend who is basically family, it's a long story. Anyways I wound up coming out to him as a little and I guess he said he'd sort of always been aware as I used to live with him his fiancee and his fiancee's son who is my best friend. During that period I had felt comfortable enough to explore ageplay and started finally wearing diapers and some little stuff around the house under clothes and as hidden as I could manage mind you. Guess I wasn't as hidden as a I thought. Anyways I full owned up to it and was trying to explain how being a little fits into my identity. I tried to explain how for some it is a kink thing but for me age-play, AB/DL is the kink side which I also enjoy, but my little is not a kink or a fetish it is a part of who I am it is a piece of my identity. For me it is something like gender or sexual orientation. I would put in that category of personal description, but when talking I found I didn't know where I'd put it. So I broke it down to Gender, sex, identity. The first two gender and sex can influence identity, but my little side is purely identity. I guess I'm writing this to share these thoughts with this community because maybe you guys can help me to figure some of this out as I am still unpacking if that even sounds right. Any insight or help would be lovely! Oh an I will gladly answer any questions or clarifying things as far as I understand them. I hope I have not offended anyone with this! If I have please explain to me how and I will bear it in mind in the future if I have I ask for your forgiveness.
