It's not a crime to be confused. What would be a mistake would be to make a move when you do not have the full story and no idea of the consequences. So what if people criticize you for being a stick-in-the-mud or over cautious. Let others mop up the spilt milk. The climate is ripe for misunderstandings and missteps; it is also fairly adversarial. Therefore, the more you pussyfoot around delicate situations, the better. As always with challenging influences, they do have their pluses, which on this occasion means if you occupy the higher ground, you will emerge the winner.
