I’m pretty sick of conservatives and Christo-fascists levelling the word “woke” at good people like it’s some kind of pejorative.
That means, “expressing contempt or disapproval.”
Pro-tip: nobody wants moral advice from those who strip human rights away from the different, and celebrate mass shootings. And yes, it’s celebrate if you refuse to change.
When I want some talibangelical who thinks science is wrong, who thinks treating people who are different from you with generosity is evil, who thinks children marrying adults is fine, who doesn’t understand economics but labels everything they fear, “communism,” and who fetishizes guns to a revolting extent telling me what to do, I’ll let you all know.
Until then, hold your breath. I’ll stay “woke.” I’d rather be woke than an unrepentant, utterly selfish asshole.
Final thought: “woke” was originally a term used by conservatives who thought they knew stuff. They didn’t. We really aren’t ready for the internet.
