People fear what they don't understand. What you're doing is not actually hurting anyone and it's not illegal. At the end of the day, it's your life so do the things that make you happy. If it bothers someone, that's their problem, not your's.
Move to a more enlightened part of the world if you can.
Well I have no problems with anything a person chooses,as long as its not harmful to others,which your decision is not.Best wishes.
