inspired by http://www.thinkwow.com/survivingtemptation/take_the_p_u_r_i_t_y__pledge.htm
I pledge:I will make no promise that I do not fully understand.
I will seek the truth, and I will make my own choices.
I will take full responsibility for my own actions.
I will never allow another to control my sexuality or my perception of it.
I will hold my own informed, intelligent judgment above anyone else's.
I will never disvalue or consider impure my own beautiful body, emotions, or mind.
I will hold my own genuine happiness as my highest moral purpose.
I will end my relationship with anyone who abuses me, my mind, my emotions, or my sexuality.
If I ever begin to see my own natural functions as impure, evil, or the result of the evil actions of monsters such as the christian devil, I will consult self-help books or seek professional therapy.
I will make every reasonable effort to learn the facts about my sexuality.
I will never let any person persuade me to have sex against my own judgment, attraction, or interest.
I will never let any person persuade me to engage in sexual activity without adequate protection against disease and pregnancy, based on what I have independently learned about the risks.
I will love myself, my body, my mind, and my heart.
I will forgive myself for innocent mistakes, strive to understand why I made them, and strive to do better in the future.
I will refuse to accept guilt for my natural interest in and admiration of the human body.
I will never blame fictional creatures for my natural human responses, nor thank them for the good that I have wrought.
