As soon as you live an authentic life, you've left the bell curve and yes, some people will get reactionary towards you because of it.
My experience is that the laws of like attracting like are so strong that I rarely meet these reactionary, judgmental people in real life. Of course in a Forum the laws don't apply, anyone can read it, and react; so do NOT assume that just because you see a wide spectrum here that you will see the same wide spectrum out in non-cyberspace. :)
I've even found devout Christians who fully support my past choices. :)
You'll know who you can open up to and whom you can't, and you will often be very very surprised at the unexpected validations and kindnesses that come your way.
