If that wasn't odd enough, the very next day I was sitting in the student center with two girls just talking about random stuff. One of the girls starts talking about her sex offender psychology class, which made for a pretty interesting discussion. Eventually, paraphilias came up and sure enough, abdlism as well. I played dumb and inquired as to what it was while she explained it. From her explanation, she sounded put off by it while the other girl didn't really give two shits either way, but the first girl wasn't exactly against it, only saying that it was odd, which led me to believe that whoever is writing these textbooks and teaching these two classes either one, knows their stuff, or two, is pretty free-minded when it comes to these things.
It's nice to see that the fetish/lifestyle (whichever your flavor) is gaining positive attention in educational areas compared to the negative stuff you see online and in the media.
I kinda regret playing stupid to the idea now that I've had time to think about it. I could have at least lied a bit and said that an ex was into it or something like that. Has anyone else actually had the chance to discuss this intellectually with other non-abdls without accidentally outing themselves?

but yeah so i just went with the flow of the discussion... didn't see any need to be like "actually....." but then again, where i work because of our job, most people realize it takes all types...

It's as much how you handle it as it is what is said. Use your words to point out ignorance and stupidity if you're not going to use them to educate- the effect is similar as it prevents the growth of stupidity

I'm concerned that some irresponsible authors will gloss over the Wikipedia article, then gloss over two sources on a hypothesis mentioned in three places in the Wikipedia article, and print that infantilism is a type of pedophilia. Had they given it careful thought, they would know that this is due to one editor who has fought to cite one author's hypothesis, which might be based on only one case, and has not been adopted by any independent authorities.

As you might have figured out, I majored in psychology many years ago. And no, I didn't stay in the profession as interesting as it was. Oddly enough, I've never run into anyone in everyday encounters that has any idea what infantilism is. I was even a counselor at a crisis phone center for almost eight years and never dealt with such clients. (Maybe it's not that much of a problem for people who experience it). Infantilism only seems to be considered a problem when it negatively affects the life of a person and the people around them.

Also, what's this taboo thing?
[Edit] Nevermind that last part, I managed to find some info.

My dad actually knows a lady that is an adult baby. So he knows about this lifestyle and he's okay with it.
I know he'd be okay and accepting if I told him about me. But I don't think he wants to know. And there really is no benefit to telling.
