Our tribe (or “cluster,” as I like to call it) *is* putting a lot of thought into it. And I’m in.
Cyborg, I see the pin thing as people having great intentions, but not always knowing how to symbolize it in a way which makes the people they’re standing up for feel comfortable.
However, I think anytime a bystander is motivated to do more than just think in their own mind what they *wish* they could do is a great moment. They’re trying to make the next step. And it’s better than inaction/apathy. Not everyone is brave enough to be a true ally and get directly involved. I’m the type that will. But I have to remind myself that those who avoid it are following their own comfort zone. We all create our own boundaries.
Of course, I am highly skeptical of those who seem like they are wearing a pin as an accessory. But how do we determine that for sure? I wish I knew…
Take care, fellow ally.
