Following the election of Donald Trump to the United States presidency, Americans from all walks of life took to wearing a symbol on their clothing: a safety pin.
Conservatives and others took to deriding these supporters as wearing diaper pins - not safety pins - in an attempt to make fun of their message of inclusion and equality.
They were wrong.
The diaper pin represents safety. All Americans – and, truly, everyone worldwide – should have access to the basic human right that is the feeling of safety. Sadly, not all do. This needs to – pardon the pun – change.
The "diaper pin question mark" symbol has been adopted by all who believe that the U.S. should be safe for all citizens. For those who believe that some of the sentiments on display from our next president, and many of his followers, have no place in American society. Ethnocentrism, racism, homophobia, and all other forms of bigotry do nothing to make Americans feel 'safe'. And if wearing a diaper pin is a way to demonstrate our belief in a safe society, pin it on us.
There's safety in numbers...
Shirts, stickers, and pins coming soon.
