Why Are You Being Like This?
Okay, which person at the Chill White People’s Meeting™ decided that this safety pin thing was a good idea? I know it started in France and even then I thought it was a silly idea. Do you realize how few people actually know what a safety pin means in this context? Sometimes people who are not friendly have busted clothes or just like safety pins, I’m not trying to guess which category you fall into. If you want to be a good ally, how about you just open your mouth when some shit goes down.
Although, now I want there to be a Clippy but for Allies. Because that’s hilarious to me, a person who is so tired.
“Hi, I’m Pippy! Looks like you want to do some performative allyship, do you need a template?”
