As gay? As a fan of something? As a practitioner of some sorta fetish? Just general stories of you having to reveal something you were keeping under wraps, whether by your choice or not. Obviously from my signature I've at some point come out as a gay guy (I'm technically Bisexual, it's just easier to say gay since I vastly prefer men to women). I didn't have much of a choice in telling either of my parents. My mom got it out of me when I expressed a lot of ill feelings toward my dad for homophobic remarks he'd made, seemingly starting out of no where one day and lasting for several months. The line of questioning came down to the big one. "Are you gay?" I couldn't lie so I told her the truth. She'd keep it under wraps until I was ready. That didn't happen, of course. At the time, when I was 16, I was speaking to someone online that I was "in love" with (in quotes because whatever I felt for him was not love), and he sent a text to a phone no one else was supposed to know the number to, it's contents leading my parents to discuss my sexuality. I'm sure my father resented me, because he was irritable with me for the better part of a year, only stopping after I bitched him out and told him to deal with the fact his son was homosexual. He's since accepted it and is friendly with my boyfriend, so at least it worked out. Also, I have an equally out-of-my-control story of having to explain to my parents what being a "furry" meant. Easily the most embarrassing moment of my life. But I've said enough already.
