Illinois Residents Call for Shutdown of Store for Adults Who Want to Be Babies

Tykables-compressedMOUNT PROSPECT, Ill. — Residents near a newly-opened store in Illinois that caters to adults who want to live like babies are expressing concern over how the business reflects on their community and are calling for it to be shut down or relocated.

The store, called Tykables, is located in a suburb of Chicago, and features adult-sized diapers, cribs, playpens, high chairs and others items for those who who have a fetish for living like a baby, or Adult Baby Diaper Lovers (ABDL).

“It is a lot of fun,” owner John Michael Williams says of his seven-foot-tall crib in a YouTube video, wearing diapers himself. “We’ll have some teddy bears and other things like that in there as the days go by. … We definitely want to fill the space with things for people to come in and play [with and] take pictures. Not everybody has access to a nursery, so one of the things we wanted to do is provide one.”

But not everyone finds the store to be cute. On Tuesday, concerned community members spoke their mind during the regular city hall meeting.

“It’s hard for us to swallow in this community. This is not the community that I moved to,” said local resident Brandon Richards.

“Why isn’t their license being pulled?” another asked.

Some expressed concern about the business being in close proximity to a school and park, as well as its affect on other businesses.

“Our concern is how the village will ensure that this business won’t be detrimental to us as residents and business owners,” Anne O’Donnell of Hearth & Home told the Chicago Tribune.

Mayor Arlene Juracek said that while she finds the business to be odd, it isn’t illegal.

“When you look at the codes and all the definitions, there’s nothing pornographic about it, there’s nothing that would violate any sense of decency and any of our liquor codes or any other codes,” she told reporters, although opining that the business seems “icky” to her. “What they are are doing is legal.”

Tykables, which conducts most of its sales online, is only open by appointment and its windows are covered so passersby cannot see inside.

Chicago sexuality coach Tyomi Morgan told the Daily Mail that she found the business to be fine since those with diaper fetishes are not pedophiles.

“This is the cardinal rule about sexual expression: Any expression is okay as long as it doesn’t harm yourself or anyone else,” she asserted. “Adults wanting to play as babies isn’t harming anyone. And if that sexually arouses them it’s okay. That’s how they personally choose to express their sexuality and it isn’t harming a soul. The average person won’t understand it because it’s atypical. Infantilism is not a traditional sexual stimulant and that’s why it’s considered a fetish.”

But others who have learned of the matter do not find the store to be appropriate.

“This is just one of the many next steps that we have to take after caving in to every single odd/deviant proclivity under the sun!” one commenter opined. “Maybe these people should get their own bathrooms with ginormous changing tables. That way, public facilities one day will be required to have 10 or 12 different styles of bathrooms to cater to every stupid tendency known to society.”

“And now this is out in the open and we all must go along with it?” another asked. “Well, its how they ‘feel.’ And once you give rights based on how someone feels, you might as well figure on the worst things imposing themselves into society.”

    “Maybe these people should get their own bathrooms with ginormous changing tables. That way, public facilities one day will be required to have 10 or 12 different styles of bathrooms to cater to every stupid tendency known to society.”

    Lol! I think these sickos will want to use the ever-popular women’s bathroom. However, they’ll probably demand that they make “ginormous changing tables” in there. This way the “transgender woman” can change the ginormous diaper of the “Adult Baby Diaper Lover”.

    More mentally/emotionally ill people. SMH.

    • Grace Kim Kwon

      The Westerners need Christianity for sanity and morality. Everything else is a mere amusement to them.

  • Jalapeno

    Shutting people down just because you don’t *like* what they are LEGALLY doing.

    New low.

    • TheBottomline4This

      Really? Are you sure you want to say that? Ok…gays have shut down businesses of those who don’t want to service gay events. How is that different?

      • Jalapeno

        People who discriminate against gay people are sometimes breaking the law.
        What law is this store breaking?

        • TheBottomline4This

          Not wanting to partake in a gay “marriage” is not discrimination. Discrimination is the act of distinguishing (like between right and wrong); the act of making or observing a difference; distinction.
          What’s wrong with that? All of us do that everyday.

          • Jalapeno

            Regardless of the fact that you don’t like the anti-discrimination laws, they exist. The laws were broken.

            What law did the store in the article break?

          • TheBottomline4This

            I’m not familiar with the Illinois laws. There may be something, but until I would look into the laws in Illinois I can’t say for sure.

          • Jalapeno

            Why are you trying to compare it to a situation where someone IS breaking a law then?

          • TheBottomline4This

            Are the laws of the land your only guide Jally?

          • Jalapeno

            Nope.

            We’re talking about forcibly shutting down a business though..so..why are you comparing a business that was breaking the law to a business that wasn’t?

          • TheBottomline4This

            Do you agree with ALL laws? Do you think we should obey ALL laws?

          • Jalapeno

            Is that your way of avoiding the question? Hoping to paint the law as irrelevant?

        • gogo0

          they didnt understand by looking at the clear differences, and they didnt understand the first thousand times this was explained. explaining again is a waste of your time, because either they are incapable of understanding or they do understand yet refuse to concede that their argument is poor.

          • TheBottomline4This

            Right back at ya when you just don’t want to think we are right in not wanting to service gay events nor should be forced to. You just don’t get it.

          • james blue

            Should the law allow non Christians to refuse goods, services, employment, housing etc. to Christians because they disagree with our faith?

            I’m not asking what the law says as is, I’m not asking if you would use such a business, I’m asking if you think companies and individuals should legally be allowed to refuse services to us simply because of our faith.

    • Josey

      Really? then having a rated xxx store near a school would be fine with you?

      • Jalapeno

        If that particular city / state doesn’t have a law against it…

        Do people not understand the difference between “I don’t like this” and “This is against the law”?

  • Nidalap

    All perversions are logically related. By accepting one, you opened the door for all the rest to follow.
    Even pedophiles are feeling safe enough to publicly “come out” now.
    Just a price you’re willing to pay to have your pet perversion “normalized”…

    • Becky

      So true, Nidalap.

  • james blue

    If they don’t want Senator David Vitter to visit their town they should just say so.

    Looking at the video the store isn’t “in your face” and as stated not illegal.

  • ComeOnPeople!

    When we as a society give way to every perversion of reality we no longer believe that if you play with fire you will get burned. If a people fell they can fly they all join hands on top a skyscraper as the blind leading the blind say jump it’s normal , do what you feel. What a sad world where hate speech is to tell someone they can’t fly, if they play with fire it will burn them, they were born a baby boy and therefore will grow to be a man one day and if you are an adult to act as a baby is not normal and you need to seek professional help.

    • Becky

      Therefore the law is powerless, and justice never goes forth. For the wicked surround the righteous; Therefore perverse judgment proceeds.

  • Grace Kim Kwon

    This is worse than Greek myths. The West is suffering from severe mental illness from the loss of Christianity. Why can’t men protect women and children instead of exploiting them?

  • disqus_O2BUmbLecp

    What if these adult-babies wanna reinforce their baby-identity n be breast-fed in public.?
    Will Obama n Hillary mandate that lactating mothers must breast-feed adult-babies when requested by them.? *sarcasm*

    • Josey

      Funny you bring that up when I just read an article couple of days ago where a woman breastfeeds her husband every few hrs as she does her baby, sick bizarro world where anything goes now.

  • ComeOnPeople!

    Has the world gone completely mad and lost all sense of reality ? COME ON PEOPLE … Adult babies ??? Men who feel they are women and women who feel they are men? A president who threatens schools if they don’t submit to his perversion & who declares June gay pride month? Really? Really!!!

    As it was in the days of Noah so shall it be when Messiah returns. But it won’t be water this time…

  • Ronald Carter

    I’m really struggling to understand how this story relates to Christian life. I have to assume it’s drawing some sort of comparison to pedophilia or transgenderism except it’s so fringe-y and not a sexual thing at all, so…?

    • xinthose

      they cover wickedness in general, i.e. sodomy

      • Ronald Carter

        Which more straight couples engage in than gay ones.

    • Ambulance Chaser

      It involves people acting outside traditional norms of behavior, so the Christians on this site need to be notified so they can become appropriately outraged and begin trying to ban it immediately. Because freedom.

      • Bob Johnson

        And we can not let capitalism rule the market.

  • Josey

    just got to say changing an adult diaper is not my forte’. It’s demeaning to an elderly person or anyone who has lost control of their bowels or urinating and it is depressing to them but here we got ppl who haven’t lost that basic function promoting it, they need help because obviously they cannot deal with the realities of adulthood and need a fantasy life to hide in, wearing diapers, cooing like infant’s, sucking on bottles, etc, yes, these ppl need help, they need Christ first and second they need to grow up.

    • xinthose

      Amen!

  • Ambulance Chaser

    Hey, here’s a crazy idea. If you don’t have any reason to go into this store, DON’T. Why do you need to shut the whole business down? Why do you hate freedom?

    • disqus_O2BUmbLecp

      I am not hating on freedom. I am hating on perversion, crime, sins, evils n law-breaking. This is like shutting down stores n businesses that sells child pornography, cocaine, human trafficking victims(= worker n sex slaves), Muslim terrorism, etc.

      • Ambulance Chaser

        Child pornography and human trafficking harm children. Cocaine harms the people who take it and their families (although it can be argued that we should legalize things that only harm volunteers).

        Who does this store harm?

        • disqus_O2BUmbLecp

          Like the liberals used to say, “The store offends me, so it has to go.”

          • Ambulance Chaser

            No liberal has ever said that.

          • disqus_O2BUmbLecp

            Didn’t the liberals n atheists say that Confederate symbols/flags n the Ten Commandments monuments offend them n have to go.?

          • Ambulance Chaser

            No. We said that the confederate flag was a symbol of racism and we’d like it removed from government buildings. The government in question, South Carolina, complied voluntarily.

            We said that the Ten Commandments on government buildings is unconstitutional and we have, and will, sue to enforce that.

          • disqus_O2BUmbLecp

            No, the people of the South consider the Confederate flag as a symbol of State rights n the liberal Blue States in the North as bullies. The false flag issue of racism/slavery was just the North’s excuse to impinge on the State rights of the South n to bully the poorer South in 1861.
            ……. It’s like a Muslim husband committing domestic abuse against the wife who wanted a divorce.

            No, it is not unconstitutional for a State govt to put up the Ten Commandments monument or for the US Federal govt to put “In God We Trust” on the dollar bills bc these r not for the establishing of an official State religion, ala Saudi Arabia n Iran.
            ……. Furthermore, only the US Congress or Federal govt is prohibited from enacting laws to establish an official State religion, n not the State govts..

            [ The amendment as adopted in 1791 reads as follows:

            Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion,
            or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of
            speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to
            assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.]

          • Ambulance Chaser

            Uh huh. Well, you asked what our positions on the subjects were, and I answered.

          • p78

            That’s your opinion. In my opinion lbgt people offend me. Where are my rights not to be offended. You don’t give lbgt rights you just take away the rights of others.

          • Ambulance Chaser

            You don’t have the right not to be offended. I never said you did.

          • p78

            and there you have it folks .. The left wing liberal mantra “You don’t have the right…… “

          • Ambulance Chaser

            “…not to be offended.” If you’regoing to quote me, quote the whole thing.

            A lot of conservatives say that too. Do you seriously want to argue that Americans DO have a right not to be offended?

          • Baron Angelton

            So you are not going to vote for Hillary Clinton?

  • Gena B

    What is disturbing is wondering if one of the adults wearing diapers are going to be using it at the local restaurant while others are eating. Guess you have to watch for the same face babies make. Creepy.

  • Robbins Mitchell

    Sounds like “babyphobia” to me

  • David

    They can’t close this place; where will college kids get their essentials?

  • Kenny

    Under the ADA these people are considered “disabled” and qualify for government benefits.
    You voted for it, live with it. You get to work hard and pay high taxes so these babies can loaf. Enjoy!
