    • So do you feel like the safety pin movement is actually hindering the minority movement?

    • I definitely agree with you, in that in order for things to change, we need to actually make that change happen. I do think that the safety pin idea is a good start and a good representation of what we want to change, but we do need to stand up and make change. Great writing and ideas!

    • Christy,
      I agree with your post. I think the safety pin idea is a great way to get the conversation going about the problems in our country, but it’s not going to fix or change anything. I am not against the safety pin, but like you said, we to do a lot more than just pin something on our jacket.

    • Great insight, and I agree with everything you say. I think the safety pin is more just a representation of a goal or an idea though, the safety pin won’t fix anything itself, but what it represents will.
