RE: Coming ou to family
It differs from person to person, situation to situation. It is not as easy as "We have two choices in life. Either live honestly and with integrity to that which we know to be true or live the script someone else has
written for our lives." bs. This isn't the middle ages and we are not knights, we do not have to uphold the chivalry law.

What it really comes down to is you waying up the pros and cons and making a choice off that.
Yes, you shouldn't have to keep the way you are a secret because others might not like it, but at the same time you have to accept that people might not like it. You have to ask, is it more important to you for other people to be happy/satisfied/blissfully-unaware or for your story to be herd.

The reason I don't come out to people (as gay, not atheist. The whole world knows I'm atheist. But with the whole gay thing, from the stories I've read, I can relate) is because I know the drama it would cause and I can't be bothered dealing with it.

Also remember, it is far far easier for other people to say "you should be who you are and shout it from the roof tops" and quote cliche' bullshit when it is not their lives that is effected.

I don't talk gay, I don't walk gay, it's like people don't even know I'm gay unless I'm blowing them.
