Coming OUT XD

A few friends and my sis know I read slash but that's about it. My parents don't have a clue. And it got me wondering how I'd tell them/others.

Edit: BTW, while my parents are very open minded, we're still an asian indian catholic family. There haven't even been divorces in the extended family, let alone other issues. That's the main reason I never really made it common knowledge. Plus apart from my parents, everyone else who matters, already knows :)

For friends it would probably go sort of like this:
I like men. I like men so much that I don't need to see a woman around. And if one man is good, two are even better.

For parents...I'd show them cute pictures of chibis in love and then tell them the chibis are males >_<

What about y'all?

If you have done it in the past or its all just a hypothetical situation - how would you get it out that you read slash?
Well, my husband knows, of course, and my siblings, and a couple of friends. Pretty much anybody I care a lot about. I don't talk about it with casual acquaintances, though I do enjoy chattering on about it in front of my brother-in-law. ;) How much detail I go into depends on how annoying he's been lately. *g*

(How are you feeling btw? Get enough sleep last night?)
I feel much improved this morning, thank you.

As for the ass my sister's married to, the conversation on Tuesday went something like this:

J: Hi. How was the baby today?
Me: Good. She took a long nap. It was great. I got a lot of writing done.
J: *stares as floor* Ah.
Me: This particular story has been difficult. Darker than I'm used to.
J: Dark? You mean...?
Me: Angsty
J: Ah.
Me: Lots of angry sex.
J: Okay, well, have a good day.
Me: Just a minute. I want to change her diaper before you take her. So, I've spent the afternoon trying to decide if I just go the 'angry-up-against-the-wall-cock-to-cock route, or actually have them get naked and fuck.
J: . . .
Me: Both would be really hot, but I can't think of a rational reason why one or the other would have lube on hand at a funeral. So fucking's probably out.
J: *snatches baby and flees*
Oh my god, I can actually picture you nonchalantly changing the nappy and describing it while he's stuck standing there in horror XD MWHAHAHAHA

Ah, I think I'm going to read my kids slash fairy tales as they grow up -______-

*hugs* Am glad you're feeling better ^_^
