The reason I moved to m43 was because I had a fear of getting up real close to people when street shooting. The OMD REALLY helped me overcome that fear, because now I use the Panasonic 14mm to take pics of people literally 2 to 3 feet from them.

It's not that much the size of the camera as the way you point it toward people that causes different reactions. If you use the viewfinder and point camera toward people faces, it will cause hostile reaction in most people as it associates with strangers intruding into one's personal space. Now lower your camera to the waist level and people will likely look with curiosity rather than antagonism.
