This is one of those things like furries, that I'm now "meh" towards. It was shocking at first, but now I'm cool with folks doing whatever floats their boats.
It's like the producers of talk shows and documentaries don't go online!
it's certainly something most poe goers are inured too, but now i wonder how far back this fetish goes, like uh
"wild bill hickok buried with favorite blankie and binkie" or
"leonardo da vinci jacked off into a shitty diaper but, hey, neat ornithopter"
Very content to let Baby Boy play in his little space if it makes him happy, but I do have a question.
PTSD - treatable mental illness sometimes catalyzed by an event
Anxiety - treatable mental illness sometimes catalyzed by an event
Depression - treatable mental illness sometimes catalyzed by an event
ABDL - ???
Is this not considered a mental illness? Where do we draw the line at sexual fetishism and reality altering disorders, and if ABDL could be treated with therapy, why not?
It's definitely odd as fuck, but generally it would only be considered a mental disorder if it negatively impacts their lives, and distresses or impairs their normal societal functioning but what little evidence they have (on this very rare paraphilia) so far seems to indicate that it doesn't.
The DSM-V does have a consensus view that 'paraphilias' are 'not ipso facto psychiatric disorders'. They also have a separation of paraphilia from 'paraphilic disorders'. So effectively, the DSM-V implies that paraphilias are normal though atypical behaviours.
The field of psychology in general agrees that paraphilic sexual desires can't be altered, but for the harmful/criminal kind of paraphilia (flashers, paedos etc) they offer cognitive behavioural therapies and pharmacological solutions which seem to be of very limited effectiveness.
what if it negatively impacts their lives because i make fun of them mercilessly and make them feel like shit
The negative impact would be assessed based on their own actions; ability to live life, hold down a job etc rather than the negative actions of outsiders.
The depression, anxiety or self-image stress caused by bullying would be treated as a matter of course but wouldn't ultimately be a factor in diagnosing their paraphilia as a 'disorder' in and of itself.

and of course, every other comment is
"It has nothing to do with pedophilia"
"It's not sexual"
"They're not hurting anybody"
What I have a problem with the immature acting ones or the one's like Blondboy, who acts like somebody doing a bad impression of Stuart from MadTV.
