QuoteIsn't it the same with just about everyone? Don't we all have a hobby or lifestyle choice (religion, sexual orientation, etc) that we shy away from talking about with others?
Quote from: greyormLooking at it this way, it seems when you treat RPing like a "lifestyle" rather than a "Poker Night" you often end up with the screwed up social context...which doesn't happen when you have a lifestyle that is actually non-inclusive (ie: queerness; religion).It's the diffrence between doing something together and being something together.
Quote from: Clinton R. NixonI've told my story (find a humorous take on it here), but I'd be especially interested in your responses to the following questions:* Does your family know you role-play?* Do they publicly acknowledge it?* If they found out that you were gay, would their reactions be different?I will note that the answers to these will differ greatly by local culture.
