  • In the realm of society, I affirm that I will attempt to shape society, through chiding and advocacy, to encourage tolerance and comfort with people who have suffered fear, hatred, or discomfort on this front
  • In the realm of situations, I affirm that I will physically or verbally defend, as necessary, people being attacked on basis of their gender/sex/role preferences in sex
