Thread: Tykables story on Huffpost

    A couple thoughts:

    I find it a little weird that Williams sort of singled out people on the autism spectrum as a separate category than other AB/DL's. Perhaps he was going for the fact that we might enjoy such activities in part because of autism, but yet at the same time, if you do that pretty much still makes you an AB/DL. Whether or not you apply the label is up to you.

    Also, I think it's pretty inaccurate to say that ''most people in the community'' do not mess. I know it's not as popular as wetting but it's not that uncommon either. That paragraph just gives off the sentiment, to me anyway, that it's OK to like diapers and/or being a baby, but having a pee or scat fetish is weirder and grosser.

    I don't know. I think it could be realistically inferred from reading posts here that messing is less often a part of things. Even many IC people are bladder-only (like me). Is messing "weirder"? Well, that's up to your point of view. Is it "grosser"? I think, beyond the shadow of a doubt, yes. As a mom who had to clean I-don't-know-how-many shitty diapers, I can tell you I infinitely preferred the "just wet" kind.

    What I took from the article was mostly positive. I mean it was a lengthy advertisement for Tykables on the front page of Huffpost, but at the same time, because Huffpost is not an ABDL site, it was also risky to do it for the store, as it could attract exactly the kind of people they say they are fortunate to have avoided. What I did like about it was the repeated emphasis that this is not about children at all, that in fact it's about the innocent age-play of being the children.

    Someone ought to let Tykables know, though, that "Adult Baby Diaper Lovers" isn't a thing. There is a slash in there. Nobody here loves adult baby diapers. (At least I think​ nobody does.) The article did most definitely fail to create any distinction between the two separate groups within the community.

    Interesting. Have to look into exactly where that is. I mean, I know where Mt. Prospect is, but it strikes me as an odd place for this kind of store. Probably in one of their industrial parks. Can't picture it downtown or in one of the typical neighborhood strip malls.

    I'd bet that's more a function of the reporter than the reportee. How often does the press actually get all the details right?

    I actually agree with KimbaWolfNahihiko. Those two things stood out to me as just a little bit weird. I don't understand why being autistic became its own category in the community to him. It's almost like as if he was implying that those with Asperger's Syndrome have some sort of different need or feel then others who are AB/DL ... and im not too certain I understand where that comes from.

    I also feel like it's going to possibly irritate some people who are autistic and not AB/DL. XD

    Now as for the messing part, I also think it's a bit inaccurate with the way he said it. It's fine to be honest and say it's much less common, but it's still not uncommon if you know what I mean. If it was, we wouldn't have so many threads pop up on the matter XD.

    Well, this certainly is one of the fairest and most realistic stories about us that I've seen to date. It does fall fallacy to the ABDL = Fetish misnomer, but that does reflect the generalised misunderstandings of society in general. At least the story went on to clarify being ABDL is NOT sexual towards children. Now if only they would further clarify that being ABDL is by definition- not sexual at all.....

    Uuugh, I guess this just proves how much more we have to do as a community to clear up this misconception.

    I don't think it's that much of a misconception as you put it though. Not all AB/DL are sexual, but to act like it being sexual has nothing to do with it at all is just entirely false. Espeically with the way you stated it. By definition? What dictionary do you use?

    Sorry to burst your bubble but AB/DL is in fact a Fetish. It's not a life style. It's a Fetish.

    From the pictures I've seen online, it's right on an ordinary street. http://www.dailyherald.com/storyimag...H=800&noborder

    I believe you and I have both debated with Slomo in the past that diaper lovers are usually sexually motivated, but he considers using the term to denote sexual attraction to diapers to be incorrect. While I disagree, I don't think there's going to be any changing his mindset.
