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?
My mom, sister and i think my Dad knows i like slash....a lot.
Not that they know what slash is, but they are aware of the fact that i like seeing guys with other guys. I was outed when my mom read a NC-17 slash fic lying around my room back when i was 15, i think. She gave me one heck of a talk after that. But that sure did not stop me from reading them. Hahah. And she kinda accepts me for who i am now, but that doesn't mean she accepts the being gay thing, we still get into arguments about that. My sister is more of passive acceptance, either because i'm her elder sister or because she doesn't care, i really don't know. But our conversations run more like...
Sis: So, what does H and D mean?
Me: Harry and Draco.
Sis: ...Draco?
Me: *grinning* yea, Draco. I like them together.
Sis: *one eyebrow raised* whatever.
My sister is 4 years younger than me, btw. In all, it ain't perfect, but at least it's out. I don't have to hide why I'm so happy and giggle a lot whenever I see two guys holding hands or being affectionate in public because the reason is simple: I just like seeing a guy with another guy. ^___~
