You are being incredibly obtuse here.
You are never FORCED to disclose it. You can choose not to, but you must accept the consequences of that choice. E.g. if entry into a building requires disclosure, you can choose not to disclose but by doing so you forfeit the ability to enter the building.
Same story with life insurance and HIV status. You don't HAVE to tell them about your HIV status but at the same time they don't HAVE to sell you life insurance if you don't disclose HIV status.
Why is this concept so hard for you?
You do know that the issue is whether you're legally allowed to ask that question in the first place right oh incredibly obtuse one? Hence the ethical conundrum.
