Coming out isn’t easy. Once you realize your truth, you must then decide who seems trustworthy enough to tell. But queer Twitter users have made a game out of that second part, imaging which fictional and real-life women they’d come out to.

The game is easy: Just find an image of one of your favorite female characters from TV or film, post it with the phrase, “I’d come out to her,” and then see people’s reactions.
