I can see what you mean. Sometimes, I too am scared of saying or hearing the word "diaper." For me, its because I'm always nervous that someone has found me out. I do not know why I feel that way though; it was probably instilled in me when I first realized I was a *B/DL years ago, and I was scared that I would get discovered. Its psychological, and it depends on the individual. Everyone has their opinions toward the subject, and everyone feels differently on it too.
Yea that word in conversation does have that strange feeling now when mentioned in conversation. Nothing special really but that strange gut feeling that you do wear diapers for fun (or reason). Just strange.
Well It's kind of weird saying it. Like in one of my favorite songs "When I'm gone" by Eminem he say's "These foodstamps dont buy diaper's", and when I'm rapping along with it when he says that line you could most definitly hear a difference in my voice.
I'm sure I've seen this topic before in another thread.. I can't seem to find it, though, so I don't really mind you starting another discussion about the very same subject. Then again, the search engine is only as good as the keywords people add to their threads
I love the word diaper because it means I can avoid saying......... nappy... argh *cringes*. I HATE that word, even if talking about my baby niece, but I can hardly say diaper in normal conversation over here lol, so I really try to avoid the subject.
The word diaper no longer bothers me; the stigma of saying it wore off long ago. Being here so often curtailed that. Not that I use it openly, just not afraid of it. I used to flinch at its mention, even if they were clueless, but it doesn't bother me at all now. Those who know me well are aware that I absolutely hate the word "padded". I refuse to say it in that context. Its like the official babyfur term for diaper. :sweatdrop:
I love the word "diaper" as well. Just sounds cool. I don't get nervous when others say it, nor do I get nervous when there's a diaper commercial on TV and others are watching it along with me. Diaper, diaper, diaper, just like any other word, except cooler sounding!
Me too. Diaper is a very cool word. I may not even be paying attention to a background conversation or something on TV, but if someone says the word, diaper, it stands out and my attention is immediately shifted to where or by whom it was spoken, to hone in on the context. I loved when diaper commercials came on TV, but I had to be careful that I didn't appear interested if others were around. The word also would stand out on something I was reading, even before I got to the sentence in which it was used.
It seems strange to me now, but years ago, it wasn't a word that I liked saying either, lest it be evidence to someone that I like diapers. When I started wearing diapers for real ,for fun, it sounded so awesome to think to myself, "my diaper", like wow, it was me who was wearing the diaper instead of a baby!
Now it's less of a big deal, as I'm much more used to the pastime. But I still like seeing and hearing the word.
