Tortured Outing

As a Gay Man, Like I image most gay people, understand the complexities and emotional struggle that comes with the decision to come out. We come from a people with a history of having to live in the shadow just for our own personal safety. We lived by a code of silence.
So I look at the idea of outing someone like torture. It just not done no matter what. I doesn't matter if it's Osama bin Ladin himself, we don't torture.
I see outing like that. It doesn't matter if he's the biggest hypocrite in the world, we should not out.
Who will decide the degrees of Hypocrisy? Is a little hypocrisy ok? Is it hypocrisy of words or maybe it's deeds. I think the easiest thing is just not to out.
