Once you've played with people for a while, they talk casually about their spouses, their girlfriends, their boyfriends, their pets, their jobs, their home, their vacation. It's your choice to join in (or not), but it's important to understand that for some people, joining in the most basic sharing means either coming out or censoring themselves.Maybe you never move beyond listening to others on Vent. Or maybe you're exactly what people expect you to be and have never had to come out as anything else. But being relaxed, honest, and yourself means coming out eventually, if you're not what people assume (gender-normative, straight, monogamous, Christian, whatever). The other choice is to hide who you are, something some people aren't willing to do when they're playing with people they consider friends, or at least buddies.
