An ethical code does not force you to conform to a society. It defines your behavior, and can be independent of a social context you find unhealthy, unnatural, or just plain wrong.
I've been there and done that, and I think you'll find that a lot of OBODies are here because their own code of ethics is in conflict with the society around them.

Not sure if I got the quote (from Hamlet) completely right, but what it means is that you stand by your beliefs and lead by example. Maybe you can change a couple of minds, and that is an achievement...
