- "That's so gay."
- "How about those [insert favorite sports team]?"
- "You're so domestic, you'd make a good wife" (I've gotten this before)
- "Homosexuals are just a bunch of selfish perverts."
Those who are single can face additional questions/discussions that are difficult to respond to when closeted. For instance
- "Are you dating?" "Do you have a girlfriend?"
- "Let me introduce you to this girl I know."
- "What's wrong? Don't you like girls?"
How do you respond to people to whom you do not want to reveal that you're gay but who ask these kinds questions and/or make comments?
Situations like these can make gay Mormon's feel like they are being dishonest with themselves and others? And so the question arises "Should I come out of the closet?" There is no one size fits all answer to this question as everyone's specific situation is unique. However, it is worth discussing:
- What are some considerations when making such a decision?
- Who should you come out to?
- When and how is the best time to do make such an announcement?
