White people’s feelings about safety pins and performative allyship < lbgtq, PoC, Muslim, immigrant lives and experiences.

I have read your concerns, but to me they are not as important as the work that I have to do to actually protect myself others who will suffer the most under a Trump presidency.

Please decenter your emotions and ask yourself whether how you feel about a safety pin is actually important when trans kids are wondering whether they will be able to survive for the next four years.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
