My Interview with Rice Media

I was thinking of what diaper reviews I should do next. I need to review and write them before the semester ends, before I return home for the summer holidays. I was settling on Fairprice Extra Care as well as Guardian Tape-on diapers, maybe another. Thing is, once I’ve done these, I’d have covered all the common tape-on brands. I could move on to the more ‘speciality’ type ones like Abena or Lille SupremFit, which do retail at homecare shops.

Anyway, some of you might have seen my interview with Rice Media. I was a little apprehensive when they approached me given the small controversy that was ongoing at the time as well as their journalistic angle. It was supposed to be an article about ABDLs in Singapore but I’m guessing due to the lack of responses, the writer decided to focus on me.

She was very professional and assured me of anonymity. Since it initially was going to be about Singapore ABDLs I agreed to the interview. It was a little surreal getting interviewed – I had always imagined high achievers getting such an honour – but it was a professional exchange.

I told her that I can’t speak for most of the Singapore community but I could share my own experience, which I did. But she did end up taking the ‘juicy’ parts of the transcript and she went in that angle. I knew it was going to happen but I decided to let it play out. She was kind enough to let me read a draft though, and I pointed out some minor details a gesture which I appreciate.

The article went into some details about the ABs, DLs etc and used some pictures from diaper sites. She did write that I have a diaper fetish even though I did explain to her that I don’t find diapers sexual, but otherwise she stuck to the script.

We know that we ABDLs are a misunderstood bunch, but I decided to speak because this was a chance to let others know that we aren’t weirdoes or paedophiles – we are just normal people leading normal day lives and jobs, and that what we do in the privacy of our homes is our own choice that is harmless.

Major announcement coming up tomorrow, will be elaborated on Saturday!

A Film about Living Life in Diapers?

Sometimes people wonder what it would be like if everyone wore diapers and went about their ordinary lives. Nothing has else changes, we still work and play but all while wearing diapers. What if somebody actually made a film about it?

Actually Huggies has made such a film. This was an old ad for their diapers which will likely be the closest thing we have to such a film. But still, it was fun to watch. You may watch the ad here:

Actually, what I’d really like to see is a story about a parallel world, where people never get toilet trained and everyone wears diapers. The twist here is that there is a worldwide online community where people who like to relieve themselves in a dedicated pot(ty), and generally like to act like innocent seniors who are unable to use diapers because their skin is too sensitive to them.

On a side note, if we are able to divert just 5% of the amount of money people spend on diaper porn, we just might be able to make a couple of decent ABDL shows. But first we would need a netflix-like network that streams on-demand content. A platform where wannabe artistes can perform, without having to expose their bodies. Business idea, anyone?

Yet Another DCo Disagreement

There have been rumblings online over the lawsuit between ABU and Tykables over the word ‘space’. I read through some of the comments, some claiming that one of these companies have a better case and would likely win. Last I heard was that a restraining order had been filed against Tykables.

But one thought that kept bugging me: why fight? Our community is so small, why sow discord amongst ourselves? Why couldn’t they just settle it amongst themselves?

Got reminded of a Buzzfeed article I read about the time Rearz tried to trademark ‘ABDL’.  The owner dropped the case when people voiced out their opinions. I just hope that one of these companies takes the lead and leads this discussion offline and directly with each other. Remember, the rest of the world is watching our already-misunderstood community.

If Kids Never Quit…

Sometimes parents worry about how their kid may never give up ‘that babyish thing’. Like when their six year old kid is still drinking from a milk bottle every night, or still wears diapers.

This video is in part a parody on this concept, of how much parents, mums in particular, worry when their kid hasn’t ‘given it up yet’. It’s also supposed to motivate parents to press on, but not to woes too much as they eventually will get it, that nobody doesn’t just stay in diapers… right?

But the thing is, such people do exist. Welcome to the ABDL community! Yea, we do give up our diapers, bottles, pacis for a couple of years but it restarts anyway. Yup, we wonder about what if we hadn’t become ABDLAnd yup, we are proud of it mostly, just like the ladies in the video!

Pride

There’s a lot being said on social media about the Gay marriage ruling in the USA. Even WordPress seems to be celebrating. Though I’m neutral on this issue, I think it is worth mentioning. To those in the US who are impacted, congratulations. Go ahead with your plans, but do be mindful of the feelings of those around you.

Of course, with all the talk of Gay Pride, the issue of ABDL Pride is also being discussed. As an ABDL, I would really appreciate if people around me were accepting of my wishes. But I feel that at this point, it is not acceptable. I feel that the tsunami of emotions that would engulf one’s family would wreak havoc. Friends, unlike families, would judge the ABDL, and ostracise him or her. So it would be much better for the ABDL to keep it to himself/herself and their significant other only.

Again, I’m living in a conservative Asian society where we are expected to conform and lead exemplary lives. The situation may be different in other Western communities, hence it may be fertile for an ABDL there to ‘come out’. Whatever the case, he or she must carefully weigh the pros and cons of coming out.

Are you prepared to live up to the stigma that society has of ABDLs? If not, keep to yourself. If so, please don’t do anything to tarnish the community. That is all that the rest of us ask of you.

My backpacking trip was good, will write about it in the next post as I need to dig out the pictures.
