I came out at thanksgiving 3 years ago. It was awesome. Mashed potatoes were thrown, valuable china was smashed. It was EPIC.
Seriously, I came out the day after Thanksgiving. I had to do it before I went back to school. My mom was great. Now she outs me to family members and I yell at her not to do it. In fact, I did that just 10 minutes ago. Sometimes she's a little TOOOOOOOO gay-friendly.
