My family doesn't know and I want to keep it that way... cause I won't really enjoy explain to them that I like yaoi *their kind of old fashioned*. Besides they already bother me because I like manga... if I told them I love yaoi (I would have to explain in detail) it would very bad for my health.
With my mom the reation would be the best I guess(she is pretty nice but its best not to overload her with that kind of info). She don't mind that I read manga, but if she knew how much time I spend on reading manga, then she would complain. Besides its already hard for her to understand my love for books… because she thinks its childish of me to read fantasy books. She doesn’t get that 80% of my books have sex scenes at one point.
Her boyfriend is another different story. I won’t tell him, ever
. He’s homophobic, racist and mangaphobic
(horrible isn't it?).
He always criticizes on my sex life – or lack of – or the fact that I read books/manga or my taste in music *he always finds something to mess with me*… I really can’t imagine telling him: I like to see/read guys f***ing each other.
He would be “WHAT?!”
and then he would try to correct me *probably by hitting me
and I’m not in the mood to be punching bag
I have a cousin living with me, but she’s younger than me (just 13 yr) so I won’t say anything to her yet *I’m letting her develop her own tastes without influencing her, I guess* but she even likes manga *the normal action supernatural one I can read in front of my family* so there might be hope for her yet, loool. And then there's my sister that only has a couple months *now she’s
too young for anything except eat and sleep*.
My closest friends know that I read manga and accept it (but they aren’t really into it like I am) and the my 2 BFF know that I like yaoi and they kind of understand it. But I feel kind of lonely since I can’t speak of it *in detail* with anyone except my online friends (and then to actually speak to them I have to be in the computer and connected to the net and they have to be online… so it isn’t as frequent as I would like).
It’s not like I hide it my tastes , if someone asks I tell them I read manga, but I won’t tell them I read yaoi unless I have some level of trust in them *people judge far too quickly for me to announce my personal tastes to the wind*. I'm far too peacefull to risk a fight over something that I can't or want to change
, in this case my love for yaoi.
I don't have a boyfriend, but if I had I would wait a bit before I tell him. I mean... what would be my changes of finding a hot guy that wanted to date me and support, if nothing else, my love for yaoi? Hmm... not likely
