It can seem as though fear is what drives so much of what we call "society". Fear of what the neighbours might think, or what if the boss finds out (insert thing here), and so on. What a terrible way to live your life, in perpetual fear, just like a politician, always being terrified of someone finding out something about who you really are. It's a far better thing to do what the gay movement did, and come out naked. Period.
This is why it's important to use your real name, and not hide behind a pseudonym, or alias. This is why it's so important to realize that you do have the confidence to, for instance, show a naked photo of yourself and not be ashamed who sees that. This is me, if you don't like what you see, then stop staring.
