Unexpected

Today, I came out to my parents. Their response was basically, "Oh, you’re coming out? But we’ve known for years. It was obvious, so obvious we never knew you were in the closet in the first place." FML

What rule does this break? I see "harsh" comments all the time on FML, and this is not one of them.

It's not their place if their child wants to keep it a secret. They were probably respecting the kids privacy.

Show it anyway

Probably because I said it’s not an FML. The thing is, this also isn’t a YDI either. Edit: Yep that’s it, read the email I was sent (located in spam folder at that)

if you say YDI it gets flagged. it's happened to me a few times when I've questioned an FML

You're not allowed to say "This isnt an ***". no matter the context

It's nothing personal, but if we allow it for one innocuous comment, the floodgates will open and be very annoying, trust me. Hence our commenting rules (link just below the comment box) and this one: "Article 3 - Be nice: don’t ruin the atmosphere by stating, “Not an FML” or “Why is this an FML?” By definition, if it’s on FML, it’s an FML. This sort of comment is just annoying after the 600th time. Even if you mean it in a nice way. If you don’t like, or understand a story, move on to the next one."

I’m wondering the same thing

FYL for your parents never having an honest conversation with you before. Sounds like it should have been brought up sooner.

This is kind of funny. Your parents sound really nice.
