RE: Not coming out!
The choice to "come out" can be a momentous one, and there's no need to rush it.

Often the reactions may be unexpected. I realized I was an atheist at 13, but I didn't actually tell anybody until I was in college. To my surprise, it didn't seem to be a big deal to anyone I told there, and most of my friends and acquaintances have known about my atheism since I was 18.

Except for my parents, which I didn't work up the cojones to tell until I was 32. And when I did, I got another surprise -- two, actually. Dad had always been pretty straight-laced, strict, and conservative, and mom had always supported me in all my hair-brained pursuits and passions. But when it came to being an atheist, mom was appalled, and dad was like, "Well, he's an adult; he has to believe what he believes." No big deal. So, you never know; it's good to be cautious where other people's feelings are concerned.

Just in case anyone really wants an intense, informative and continually growing resource... TTA does have an excellent onsite library. Thumbsup

When asked, just tell people that you are being ironic.

Thanks! I'd love to discuss with my mom but besides being a devout Southern Baptist she also suffers from Major Depressive Disorder. It would send her over the edge.

Oh well, it's nice having a group to come out too!
