I have been downed many times, because I use English as second language. It's not that poor, though. I earned IELTS 7 band two years ago. It happens that sometimes I do not understand an article or respond into comments in a way that others do not get it, and then the bad things begin. I have gone through imposter syndrome as well. It really hurts, but there is no way other than keep running.
Well the fact that you can speak more than one language is a awesome feat itself! So just let people know that you are speaking a secondary language, so they know. If they give you a bad time, ask them how many language they speak? :P Most of them only speak 1, so maybe it'll make them think twice!
This gave me waves of laughter. Yes, I'll implement your suggestion next time. Cheers!
