A person knows his/her own situation better than any outsider looking in.
I don't think that's always true. But we can certainly agree to disagree.
I'm not saying there are never negative consequences of exposure of fannish involvement. I'm just saying that a lot of people overestimate them, and that a lot - over time - come to realize that they've done so, when it was obvious to outsiders before. I'm not commenting on anyone's specific situation. Well, except to say that if Barack Obama writes slash, I'd rather he wait until after the election to reveal that fact.
