My opinion is, I don't care.
I was never the type to concern myself with what others thought, if they have a problem with what I am doing, for whatever reason, that is fine. Good for them. They can feel. Doesn't stop me. I simply don't concern myself with others opinions, thoughts, or feelings, towards me or anything I do.
As long as I accept myself in what I do, and know, I don't need other peoples acceptance (even thought it is nice but not necessary).
