After the election of Donald J. Trump, fears are growing that segments of his base may physically or emotionally abuse minorities, immigrants, women and members of the L.G.B.T. community. As a show of support, groups of people across America are attaching safety pins to their lapels, shirts and dresses to signify that they are linked, willing to stand up for the vulnerable.
Nice gesture, but kind of silly. You see, for the past three decades I've been wearing a safety pin ever working day to show support for the vulnerable.
I'm wondering if the left is trying to appropriate a portion of my culture? I thought that cultural appropriation was a bad thing? I guess it's nice that they're supporting the vulnerable. Perhaps they should go down to the police academy and fill out an application.
