Seems like it's about how people will impose their own fantasy of who you are and how you are onto you. People tend to project onto you whatever they need you to be, no matter how far from reality that is. I would imagine this is especially true if you are in a position like RS.
You can tell someone you are smelly, you burp and fart like all the rest, but they can't seem to see you as a fallible human being, like everyone else. In a way, then, people are just using you to fulfill their own needs and write their own narrative. It's not a nice position to be the object of that.
