I applaud you standing in your authenticity and behind your voice. As a woman who writes about non-standard experiences (polyamory, sexual freedom, etc.) I wrestled with the same questions and eventually came to the conclusion that I could be more open and authentic if I wasn’t concerned about any censure or blowback finding it’s way to my actual identity. I have yet to experience any negative comments, but yesterday read an article written by an “out” polyamorous woman about some of the terrible things she’s been called and accused of. It led me to conclude that I’d probably made the right decision — at least for me.
