Cognitive Dissonance: All for onesies, onesies for all

by awindram

My grip on British pop-culture is loosening. I did, however, notice that one of this year’s most commented TV shows on social media was 15-stone Babies, a documentary by Channel 4 that looked into the world of adults who retreat to, or fetishize, life as an infant; they sleep in mansize cribs, they dress in diapers, they have someone change their diaper, etc. On twitter and Facebook, people seemed enthralled and repulsed by the documentary. “What a load of freaks,” was a common refrain among people I follow on Facebook. Fast-forward two months and a quick look at Facebook reveals a surprising number of the same people posting pictures of themselves in the onesies they received for Christmas.
