I've noticed there are quite a few Transgender (across the spectrum) folk who enjoy the ABDL scene. Why do you think this is? I personally think its partially because I feel like I missed out on my my young childhood as I transitioned later in life.
Likewise. If I had to name a suspect cause for unusual coincidence of ABDLism and TS, this would be it. Diapers conveniently cover up and obscure the "wrong" parts, and my anatomy was a major reason that I felt uncomfortable without them.It helped with my bottom dysphoria more than anything else, and provided a level of emotional comfort for something that (at the time) I couldn't shake and didn't fully understand.
ABDL isn't a link for everyone it doesn't turn me on it's a comfort for meI know I’m a week late, but I think that just because it isn’t being discussed clearly that being trans and cross dressing are different things, doesn’t mean someone is implying that they are. Crossdressers are definitely still a thing separate from being trans.
But, I’ve heard it explained a few times that once you accept 1 thing about yourself that’s hard to accept, you’ll more easily be able to connect with anything else about you that might be difficult. So being into a weird kink and being comfortable with it could lead to more easily accepting that you’re trans. Or vice versa.
