Woke used to be an awareness of social issues. Growing up for me, it meant more specially, an in depth awareness regarding racial injustices. Tupac Shakur comes to mind. He had a very in depth awareness of the issues within the black community. What truly made him woke in my opinion, was his awareness of all the lies he had been told, as well. IE he had realized he had been raised to hate the police, but recognized he had only been shot, robbed and assaulted from the hands of his own community. So he wasn't reciting talking points. Many of today's woke, enforce social justice behind computer screens. Are angry on the behalf of others. I saw BLM marches, where there were white people in cities like Baltimore, destroying businesses that in some cases, belonged to black people. This is what many view as the type of woke person who has to educate others all the time, but really don't know much about anything. This is the derogatory SJW version of the woke movement. Extremely loud, angry, but really doing or accomplishing nothing. I don't hate woke people. Its just hard for many to take woke people serious, when they sound like the above. I had a friend that if you would talk hockey and mentioned Patrick Roy's 500 some wins, they would have to correct you with an exact number, including the playoffs. I don't mind correction, but at this level, it's more of a "okay, work on your social skills first and activism second....".. 1 hour ago, Americana Antifa said: So again, case by case basis. There still is an unfair advantage, unless you strictly stipulate one can't compete unless they have not undergone puberty. This would be deemed as discriminatory, as you're essentially stating that some trans women as an example, are more women than others. I get your point, but to me, you either allow all trans people who have undergone hormone blockers for a set time frame, or none. None is more sensible, when factoring unintended consequences.
