People are just people. All have faults and foibles. Their 'perceived' status should have no bearing on other's judgements of their personal life decisions. Whilst I may or may not approve of my next door neighbour's actions, they have no more or less influence on mine than your's, Nicola Sturgeons's or the Queen's.
I take it you’ll be happy if enough of “these” people get together introduce laws that you and me are expected to follow and not apply to them.
