Hello, Defenders! Thanks for checking out our blog.
My name is Ethan Morrow, and I am a fellow Defender. I became a Defender about one month ago, and my life hasn’t been the same since. I learned about the Defenders through my school, Warner Pacific College, and since then the Defenders has become a huge part of my life. In fact, I recently signed on to become a Defenders intern, where I will be offering my experience to help get Defenders active, educated, and encouraged.
Part of my background involves working as a computer teacher for the past four years, engaging students with the ever-changing technological world. I also spend a good amount of my time creating an online presence that inspires others to follow their dreams and discover their passions. I make an effort to live my life passionately, share my heart openly with others (through social media and personal interaction), and hopefully inspire others to do the same.
I am very excited about the launch of our new Defenders video, and the relaunch of our “Take the Pledge” campaign. To me, pledging to be a Defender is more than just a pledge. When you pledge, you are becoming a hero. You are standing up for the injustices of this world. You are caring for the broken, and you are changing the world one promise at a time.
The world of the commercial sex industry is filled with pain and abuse. I believe it objectifies women, and it turns them into animals for the sick pleasure of men. Not only that, but its proven through studies that the commercial sex industry slowly changes your mind, both chemically and emotionally; it lowers your respect for women, increases your sex drive (in a negative way), and slowly disfigures your understanding of love and what a true relationship with a woman looks like. This isn’t a myth. Indulging in the commercial sex industry changes your brain chemistry, and completely degrades women.
But hope isn’t completely lost. Restoration can happen, and prevention can happen. Ultimately, this industry can be eliminated. By taking the pledge, you are committing to change your life. You are committing to take a stand against the violation of women. You are committing to spread love and care.
Through the Defenders Facebook page, our blog, our twitter feed, and other social media, I’m excited that we can create a community of support for guys who have taken the pledge. We can educate each other, share stories, and fight against the violation of women. So, I encourage you to have your friends take the pledge. Support each other. Meet with each other and educate each other. Care for your family.
Let’s be heroes—let’s be Defenders.
