A father in Australia who likes to wear nappies around the home has been banned from visiting his children due to a bizarre quirk that he claims is harmless.
Dad With Adult Nappy Fetish Banned From Seeing His Children By Ex-Wife
An Australian father who was banned from visiting his children because he liked to wear nappies had his court appeal denied.
After his ex-wife grew afraid that his kink might negatively influence their children, the Family Court of Australia prohibited the man, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, in 2021.
The father's adult diaper-wearing obsession was known to the ex-wife before they divorced, but his kink grew to the point that he would wear nappies around the house, according to LadBible.
According to MailOnline, the wife became increasingly anxious about how the fetish might affect their children. Following their split, the pair agreed he might visit their children as long as he concealed his kink from them.
However, the wife alleges that when her ex-husband picked up the children from her house with his nappy bias exposed, she decided to file a lawsuit.
The father filed an appeal against the prohibition, which was denied in April.
Justice Hilary Hannan at the Family Court said the dad had not "satisfactorily addressed the issues of risk".
Justice Hannan said: "I have great reservations and ultimately do not accept that the father has an authentic willingness or capacity to disavow engaging in the behaviours in question and in his connections to the community."
The father claims he is being discriminated against because he is a member of the Adult Baby-Diaper Lover group and does not represent a threat to his children.
In correspondence with the Daily Telegraph, he wrote: "I feel for and have always respected other minority identities who have been persecuted or treated differently just for being who they are.
"What I choose to do in the privacy of my own home without any children present is my business. It is a harmless activity and affects no one."
While the ex-wife has called the ruling as "landmark", the father will take his appeal to the High Court of Australia.
