I don't think there's enough discussion about the social-politics of secrecy, shame, and fear. I think people are afraid of what they imagine could happen as a result of their secrets being made public and that results in repressive avoidance of openness. Of course you want to respect people who are sensitive to information-disclosure, but where does that leave you in questioning why there's a need for secrecy in the first place?
