Patreon has reportedly been purging users who belong to the “adult baby/diaper lover” (ABDL) community, 404 Media reports.
Okay, let’s back it up.
According to abdlcommunityforus.com, a website that’s all about this stuff, these are people who enjoy “wearing diapers, using pacifiers, and engaging in role-playing activities.” There are apparently all kinds of weird people who are into this.
Patreon is a monetization platform for content creators.
In terms of the content these adult babies produce on platforms like Patreon, 404 Media says it can be both sexual and non-sexual, and can include wearing diapers, acting like babies with other adults, “or making web comics, characters and illustrations.”

Regardless of that, hundreds of these giant infants were recently booted, and apparently, they all received the same email:
“Patreon has zero tolerance for the sexualization of children or teenagers. Because we do not allow this type of activity on Patreon, my team and I removed your creator page.”
Some of the babies got upset and tried to reason with customer support, claiming that there was nothing harmful about their content. But customer support put them in a permanent time out.
“I feel that the core of ABDL is to try and return to a time where you felt safe and happy,” one person who does this told 404 Media. “Some people use it to cope with childhood trauma, or trying to get a second chance at a childhood they never had.”
As many of these adult babies relied on Patreon to make money, many of them are moving to alternative sites like SubscribeStar, which I guess is cool with this stuff.
