Well I just found out about a time last year when a "Footballer" (as in Soccer to those that call "American" Football simply as "Football" ) had let a psychotherapist who runs a nursery as a form of Therapy (hey, why not? It could be so much worse) take over his Twitter account in an attempt to make people more aware of ABDL in a positive sense.
This Footballer apparently let's people take over his Twitter account for various causes ranging from LGTB causes, to awareness of various diseases and so on; so naturally this was simply done to make people aware that ABDL is nothing bad and in fact can be a good thing
We all know that ABDL isnt bad and can be therapeutic; but what can you do when you run into those morons that think "oh these ABDLs want to harm children" ; so long story short nothing was achieved - people assumed ABDL was purely a sexual thing (it can be, but even in the cases that it is Sexual, it still has no correlation to actual children) and that it had something to do with harming Children and it wasnt long before the Takeover got cancelled
Like WTH? I don't want anything to do with anybody's Bratty Children; Diapers helps me deal with my Mental Health issues in a better way than to get stressed out, lashing out at people (as I sometimes do when my emotions get to the point where I cant just shove them down anymore) and worse yet when I used to actually hurt myself to feel good (all I'm gonna say is it is stupid, it's like doing drugs; chasing a good feeling at any cost).
I know I am better off accepting my mental need for diapers and I know most people will probably never accept ABDL; but the association with Pedophiles will probably be something that always bothers me as I know why people hate Pedophiles as I do too and to me that is the worst thing in the whole world.
Like I find even murderers aren't as sinister as Pedophiles
Yes both are very bad; but one ends a life (no more suffering in this messed up world) and the other leaves them alive with trauma they will always have until they die; victims of Pedophiles may literally suffer for the rest of their lives unable to ever live a normal life ever again.
