Fetishes and or paraphilias are not considered disorders unless they cause the person who has them significant distress, impairs their ability to function or could lead them to harm others.

Basically if it isn't harming others or yourself then its not a problem, and thats from the DSM-5, the current (at the point of this post) version of what is basically American Psychiatric Association's bible.

It should be noted however, that DSM (and by 
extension the APA) are not immune to subjectivity, personal bias and/or societal norms or stigmas, and many people with fetishes and/or paraphilias still struggle to find unbiased, openminded and/or sex positive therapists/doctors/social workers.

Welcome, I liked your gentle giantess collages. I only like gentle, consensual macrophilia and unfortunately its hard to find such media.
