Do your parents know you read BL?

Addis: Kind of? They know but they kind of us ignore that’s what I do. In their heads, at least my mom and setp dad, I only read raunchy romance novels. They always gloss over the fact that they are gay romance novels and try to convince me to ad DBZ manga and regular romance novel add to the site thinking the people who are my fans like ‘mainstream’ things like that.

My dad and stepmom don’t know but that’s because we don’t talk much and I’ve never brought it up. However, they’d be like, oh cool.

More or less. They see I’m enjoying reading these, so let me be.

Nope, they don’t know.
Like my mom and dad really don’t like these stuff they only know I read novels either action or romance(BG) .
If my mom knew I read BL she will probably cry, because she’s super religious so I try my best not to let her know, as for my dad I’m not sure how he’ll react but I do know for a fact that he doesn’t like it.

My parents have passed, but if still with me, my mum would know. We were very close and she had a very broad outlook.
I wouldn’t have specifically told my father (he’d have been uncomfortable about it), but would not have hidden it either ~ more an unspoken acceptance, “but leave me out of it” type thing ☺
My closest friends (who are my replacement family) know.

Not really? I don’t really try to hide it, tho. It’s just weird to talk about it to my parents. She does know I like to read. I have a bookcase full of books after all. I read anything as long as they’re interesting, not only BL….

No, they don’t know. They just know that I like reading novels but I haven’t told my parents that I like to read bl novels.

I’m a parent myself but I let my daughter know and she laughed at me she admired me for being so open-minded.

nope. hahaha~ they only know that i’m an otaku and really like handsome guys.
i often put bl characters as my profile pic, but not in a suggestive pose. so they don’t know that their daughter is actually rotten 🤣🤣🤣

Absolutely not! My mother is a narrow minded person. Even when I worked already, when I watched romance movies with kisses, she said what kind of movies are watching? But when she saw me watching animation, she said what age are now, still watching cartoon? So, never in my life I will tell her. My father has separated from us long ago and we didn’t contact much. My big sister didn’t know. My 2nd sister knew, but she didn’t care much.

Been reading romance novels since I was 12 years old. I’m 37 now. I think this question really only pertains to people 18 and under. Lol
