True, within advocacy there should not be any usurping of another person’s agency. However, I would question *why* is there a desire or, in many cases, a need to cover?
We could go down the rabbit hole of ‘what is free will and do we have it?’, but to make a long story short: are you sure your choice to cover is not a result of social, religious, and/or cultural indoctrination? The most effective means to determine that is to go uncovered as an experiment to observe other’s reactions.
Please don’t try that if forethought implies there is any likelihood of negative consequences. That alone should be enough of an experiment.
