Safety Pins

So, i am wearing a safety pin out of solidarity with others who feel threatened by the rhetoric surrounding the election of Trump. What i am seeing is a bunch of accusations that it's being done bt lazy white people.

Now, mayhaps i am particularly sensitized to the breadth of at-risk given NC's HB2 targeting of transgendered folks -- that continued through the whole campaign.

Have i missed something that says safety pins are just about race? Because i wear one for race and gender presentation and immigrant status and LGBTQ identity and religion (particularly for my Muslim kin) and for the environment.... And i'm feeling a little... piqued ... at some of the discussion around https://www.safetypinbox.com/ .
