The "perception" is that to qualify for a platinum card one would be of considerable assets/income and of a certain lifestyle. I think that due to your low income, which you revealed, some may feel that you don't fall into the socioeconomic status of the typical platinum member.
I say, "Welcome to the club. Membership has privileges." And don't do the spending limit too much or you will get a financial review which may suspend charging privileges. FYI, you should have authorization for up to 20k per day that you can tie to your checking account for cash advances. Your charging should be up to par with that as well.
