Most of the time we have no wish for others to see our inner-workings, whether they are physical, mental, or functional. Nowhere else can one find real privacy but inside the body or mind where you, and only you, can choose to make known whatever you like. Imagine having everyone you know, and some passersby, peering at your insides during a major operation, or imagine anyone who looks at you being able to know your thoughts and motivations. Either of those scenarios is unsupportable to the vast majority of us. The desire for privacy is an innate feature of human beings, though not always for the rest of the Animal Kingdom. We will, however, assign our desire for privacy to pets and to other animals though they might not feel the same way about privacy regarding bodily functions, mental activity, or other matters we generally consider private. We should assign a need for privacy concerning our inner workings only to ourselves and let others make their own decisions about their personal privacy themselves. By overstepping boundaries we open ourselves to the breeching of our own boundaries, and that is something we all feel is unacceptable. Isn’t it better to keep our inner-workings private and allow others to keep theirs to themselves than to make anything and everything public?
