I came out to my family that I'm into bitcoin
Postby confused00 Thu Jun 12, 2014 5:29 pm

First of all let it be known that I created a new account just to open this thread. I'm pretty well known around here and some of you may recognize who I am from the way I write, and that's fine. But I don't want any possible embarrassment this thread may cause me to carry on to my true identity on here, or affect the way others see me.

So basically, what happened is I decided to tell my family and close friends that I'm into bitcoin by having a "coming-out" party. I don't think it went very well and that's why I'm here.

Let me elaborate.

I'm a male in my early 20's. If you were to ask me who I am, the 1st thing I would instantly say is "I am an bitcoin fanatic". It's who I am. It's my identity. bitcoin is my life, and it felt important enough for me to tell my friends and family. I decided the best way to tell them would be to have a bitcoin "coming-out party", though I didn't tell them that the party was going to be about bitcoin ahead of time. I'm not stupid. I knew they would look it up in Google and see a bunch of stupid things and criticisms by trolls about it, so I decided that to make the best impression of bitcoin I would have to present it to them myself.

I ordered pizzas and planned a lot of fun activities we could do that would explain to my friends and family what bitcoin is.

It started when they came in through the door. I gave everyone a sealed envelope and told them not to open it until I said so. When everyone had arrived (grandparents, aunts and uncles, my parents, 3 of my cousins, and a couple non-family friends), I announced what the purpose of the part was and had them open the envelopes. I had commissioned a popular artist that I really like to draw sketches of each of my family members/friends tipping me, and I printed these pictures out and put them in the envelope (he agreed to do the sketches for $5/each BTW so it wasn't too expensive for me). Everyone kinda laughed and a couple of them were confused when I explained (my grandpa got kind of mad at me though). I basically explained to them that I'm into bitcoin and what it is. I don't think they took it very well though because they joked a lot about it (they kept asking if I was serious or if I was joking). A couple people (my parents and grandparents mostly) seemed upset though, unfortunately.

The next part of the party was I hooked up my laptop to my TV with an HDMI cable and I started showing them my favorite bitcoin pictures on Ekas portal and other pictures that I had saved on my computer. This is where the party kind of took a turn for the worse. One of my uncles got really mad and started calling me names (I don't want to repeat them here) but my aunt defended me. We argued for a bit and most of my family left at that point...I kept showing them the bitcoin pictures I liked on Ekas portal but they started leaving and only my cousins and close friends chose to remain and look at the pictures with me. What did I do wrong? Is this basically something that only younger people enjoy? Because I'm pretty sure my grandparents hated bitcoin (I still love them though even if we can't see eye to eye on this subject that's extremely important to me).

Anyways the next part of the party that I had planned for so long and was expecting to be a bit hit was a kind of interactive bitcoin reading game. I had printed out one of my favorite bitcoin stories from Eka's and I wanted to pass around the story and we would all read a part aloud, but that didn't really go as planned. One of my cousins said they thought it was "creepy"...? I tried to convince her that it'd be cool but no one wanted to do it. I had to read the story myself but when they started talking to each other about things NOT related to bitcoin I kind of gave up

The party kind of fizzled out. We just watched TV for a bit, I kept talking about bitcoin a bit (but not as much as I wanted) and after the party was over everyone (the people who were left at the end, anyway) finally left.

Did I do anything wrong? Should I try to do the party again, because I think they may have interpreted my interest wrong? It's really important for me and I want them to know, but how can I communicate my love of bitcoin to my family members who are specifically picky about such issues >.> , such as my uncle who was intollerant of me? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

also, how much can you do with an imaginary fetish anyways? he's not like drawing the poo poo for da or anything all day. it's imaginary, so it's not like you can read books about it. so like forums and poorly-written fan fiction about living in a giant butthole consumes most of this dude's free time? is he jackin it raw for hours and hours?

Welp, my dad just passed away from multiple myeloma. Its a poo poo day in little rock arkansas. But im glad to say that thanks to bitcoin i was able to keep him around an extra 6 months.

To anyone who thinks bitcoin is some joke. Jokes dont pay for 6 months worth of chemo.

His last words to me were "go make some coins" (i made him a believer)

Ill miss him dearly. Love you Dad.

Thats all. Long live bitcoin.

gently caress multiple myeloma!

UPDATE Thank you to everyone showing support. As mentioned in the comments i will collect any tips i get and i will tip every cent plus my own coins to a worthy myoloma cause. So im formally asking you redditors for suggestions on the best way to go about donating to help myeloma fighters/research while still advocating bitcoin at the same time. Tomorrow i will go through and see what everyone thinks is the best way and lets get this done right!

Thank you Reddit

We need a subreddit or something where people can post up a link for the business that they really want to accept bitcoin and everyone just blasts that business for a certain length of time in hopes to get them to (even if out of annoyance) to accept bitcoin. Does this already exist and im just to dumb to find it?
