It seems as if people believe every time you write about a particular topic, that you are speaking from a personal stand point.
For example - If I write about women are promiscuous (some commenters will conclude i must be talking about myself).
For example - If I write about single mothers who do it all on their own (some commenters will conclude i am a single mom who baby's father left her).
For example - If I write about life in the ghettto
Commenters will assume I am from the ghetto.
Don't people know you can cover a topic that you take interest in, without it being about your personal life?
What do you think?
Do you think every myTake reflects someones life? or people can be writing for entertainment or to see different outlooks on a certain subject.

There are a lot of nitpickers who will always criticise you without even a minuscule information about you. They call me misogynistic, fool, selfish, loser and what not based on the questions I ask. They even think that I "care too much" / "am sad about it" / "give a fuck". The fact they don't realise is that I am just testing their wisdom based on random questions. I'm not what I post here. Anyone can call oneself Spiderman and no one will believe, but call yourself a crude person and people will be ready to agree to that. This shows that how badly we are surrounded by inferior people.
Personally, I just say "I don't agree with you because..." etc. But I don't criticise people for what they are or pretending to be because quite honestly, it's foolishness to ridicule people you know nothing about and wasting your own time like that.1

I guess for me, why write a take about say how hard single mothers have it, if you aren't a single mother?
I get perhaps your friend is, and you're writing about them, but then it's like your friend is writing the take through you. We observe things and write about it sure, but at the same time, if I see a take about the hardships of motherhood, I assume you must be a mother. Because while I know motherhood is hard, I am not a mother so I won't even begin to try and talk about it.
So yeah I guess people assume if you're writing something, you must have first hand knowledge somehow. But no, it's not always the case and it doesn't mean you are wrong.1
