The Incredible Reason You Might Start Seeing Safety Pins Everywhere

Recommended Posts

 Ukshep    20,202

So while protests rage on across the country, one movement is using a simple yet powerful symbol to show their support for anyone who is fearful of what is to come.

By fastening a safety pin to their clothing, people are declaring themselves allies to groups who have been maligned by Trump, to show that they stand in solidarity with anyone who might be afraid.

And as we’ve been dismayed to find out in the days following Trump’s election, it appears that there is reason to fear. People across the country have shared stories on social media of violence and hate speech directed at them in the wake of Trump’s victory. Racist graffiti was spotted around the country and minorities reported experiencing harassment the day after Trump was elected.

These frightening instances illustrate why the #safetypin idea ― which was inspired by a movement following Brexit in the United Kingdom ― is so timely. It’s a tiny gesture, but it speaks volumes, assuring people they are not alone.

No, we're all going to have to wear them so they don't know who we are!  That's how we go undercover.

It's very symbolic they use the same item used to hold up diapers.

I was JUST thinking I need one  of those old fashioned YUUUUGE diaper pins.  I'll suck 'em in, let them gather round my "safe space" and then start screaming out all kinds of support for Trump.

I expect to single handedly reduce the TARD population by a significant percentage through spontaneous cardiac arrythmia.  I dunno how to perform CPR ya know?  And, the snowflakes will be too busy melting to remember CPR so I know I'll get a few at least!  :)

I'd rather stand by the man or woman wearing an AR-15 slung around their neck, thanks.

That is a real "safe space".(at least, as safe as any space can be in the wild world we live in)

The more I read these kind of foolish hijinks, the more I shake my head. Why are people acting like they're in a state of arrested development?

Keep in mind that these are the same people who were quick to mock Trump when, at the last debate, he said he would wait to react to the election until all the results were in. These safety-pinners said that meant he was too immature to accept defeat, etc. and they laughed at him.

Now look. Safety pins? Cry ins? College classes cancelled because of widespread trauma? Geeeez....
