Lurking in Castle Moats
I've also come across non-babyfurs who think that having a Marci badge constitutes "flaunting infantilism in their face." I think what you're describing has more to do with tact than lifestyles but I'm not sure up to what point you're talking about here.
A better example would be those who wear diapers 24/7.
Again, you're talking about tact (or lack thereof) and not lifestyles. As far as furries adapting weird lifestyle habits I've definitely seen some pretty far out stuff but I still don't think it's worse than some stuff I'll see in the leather/bdsm crowd.
Well there is a good justification and a bad justification for calling out on "you're flauntiing it".
Asking the furs around you to treat like a baby, kind of is flaunting it don't you think? Asking for others to tell you want to do? Whining like a 5 year old when you don't get your way and then complaining "Hey it's just who I am, I'm a baby fur" when you tell them to stop that.
That's the thing people literally try to turn these things into lifestyles and then wonder why people have problems. The inflation/fat thing now has it's own life-style...it's called the Gainer Crowd. It's like...wtf? You love the art, combine it with food and now you are trying to get diabetes.
Baby fur has a baby fur lifestyle now. It's called adults trying to get away with acting like a baby 24-7.
A lot of it may be tact. Learning when is the right and wrong place to bring it up. Trying to force others to cater to your thing, or bringing actual sexual things in certain places, like mostly public areas...that's not exactly a good thing.
That said I've got to go, class is about to start.
