. . . is to wear safety pins as a public signal that you're against intolerance. What, precisely, this is expected to achieve has not been made clear. It seems to me a bit like tweeting to secure the release of kidnapped and gang-raped girls in Nigeria (which was never likely to do very much for them, if anything at all. I've never yet met a terrorist [and I've met more than a few, some of whom are, regrettably, still alive] who would do anything except laugh himself silly at the very idea.)
With that in mind, if safety-pins are to be worn against intolerance, here are a few more virtue-signaling suggestions. We could:
- Wear diapers against incontinence.
- Wear condoms against impregnation.
- Wear red noses against insouciance.
- Wear spectacles against invisibility.
