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?
Most of my friends and some of my family know, because I'm not a very suptle person *G* I love to talk about stuff that I like or love so when I had my obsessive phase with Queer as Folk they couldn't not know. Also when I start with SGA I just can't not mention Johns and Rodney *G* They think I'm a little soft in the head because of it but thats all. Maybe you should try to just tell them about a pairing that you like and start with discribing them as just persons and then after a while you mention that they are male. That would help showing them the reasons first. You know what I mean?
My fandom squee has always been directed at friends so while my parents knew I was into X-Men, Harry Potter, Anime et all, they never actually knew what I was reading. My dad only knew I read those trashy romance novels (het) that my sis used to read. They never actually knew when I moved on from those, lol.

Since we're on separate continents now, I think I'd probably save it for when we migrate to Canada or something. Slash reading habits do not make for a homey phone conversation, lol
