“Diaper Pride Flag” Update

As many of you probably know, I put up a blog post about a week ago entitled “My Diaper Pride Flag.” In that post, I showcased multiple versions of this “pride flag” and explained why I designed it the way I did.

After my post here, I shared my design on Reddit (on r/ABDL, to be specific). Side note: I mentioned my Reddit presence in my previous post about the XL Goodnites, but I don’t think I have mentioned it before. Truth be told, I believe I started my Reddit account in order to promote this blog on r/ABDL when I first started it. I think I had only ever browsed r/ABDL before then. After my post announcing this blog, I have mostly just been a browser/lurker. I have at times been very active in browsing the page, but I have rarely had the inclination to post or comment. (The reasons why are perhaps the subject for another post.)

Anyway, back to the main story. Here on my blog, I only got one comment about the flag, and it was positive. This comment actually came in after I had already gotten a lot of feedback on Reddit. Well, I say a lot, but all I mean is that it was a lot to me. Anyway, most of the feedback I got on Reddit at first was negative or critical, but I did get more positive feedback as time went on. (View the post and comments with this link.)

After having mulled over the feedback for about a week, I would like to indirectly respond to some of the criticism and then directly respond to a particular criticism. To begin with, I want to clarify my intentions in creating my design. I was not trying to take it upon myself to bestow a symbol upon AB/DLs or the larger diaper wearing community. Nor was I trying to replace any of the symbols that had previously been accepted (to one degree or another) by the AB/DL community. I was simply introducing a new symbol that I thought did a good job of representing most diaper wearers.

My Diaper Pride Flag

The story of the diaper pride flag I created begins with my creation of a logo for my blog.

The Story of My Logo:

On Thursday, I took it upon myself to make a logo for my blog. I have wanted to make a logo for a while, probably since 2018, but I figured it was finally time to pull the trigger. I thought about buying or commissioning a logo, but I decided to try my hand at one first. I’m pretty happy with the result, so I think I’ll be sticking with my design—at least for a while.

My logo is meant to be two letter Ds, one nested inside the other. The Ds, of course, stand for Diaper Demigod. Both of the Ds are roughly in the shape of a diaper and the inner D is filled in to look like a diaper. I had a hard time settling on a color for the outer D, but I went with a golden color in the end to try and evoke the same feel of strength and power that the word “Demigod” has. I don’t think it fully works, but it was close enough for me and I couldn’t think of a better option.

The text on the left side of the golden D is also meant to evoke the idea of a demigod. When I think of the concept of a demigod, I think of Greek mythology, so I used Google Translate to translate “Diaper Demigod” into Greek. Now, I have no knowledge of the language, so I’m not at all sure how good the translation is, but I hope it’s right. Even if it’s off in some way, the look of the letters definitely brings out the “Greek myth” feel I was going for.
