I’m saying that when you deny the legitimacy of anyone’s experience, including someone with loads of privilege, you are going too far, and you’re going to undermine yourself. That perspective is hard to maintain when you are feeling directly threatened as you do now, I get that, which is why my (unsolicited) recommendation is to turn to your deepest support networks instead of lashing out at people who care. I don’t face the dangers you do, but I am drawing on my own experiences of deep vulnerability due to a debilitating chronic illness, in coming to my views.

Also, I’ve been on the fence about wearing safety pins myself, so it’s not about me.
