Re: What on earth does 'WOKE' mean?
It originally meant something along the lines of 'awakened to the realisation that there are oppressions, vantage-points and lived experiences that are outside your own personal ken that you would be aware of and sensitive to, so that you can respond courteously and helpful and not like an entitled little shit'.
Now it can be a way of trolling people for their deficient caring or sensitivity.
In the same way 'politically correct' originated when 'the personal was the political' and it was realised that calling someone by a word they hated was rude, offensive, and in the end oppressive - because calling someone, say, 'coloured' when they prefer 'African American' says that you don't give a flying fuck about how they feel, and that they'd like control over the terms used to them and about them.
Again, over time, this became a term misused and then mocked, and sometimes mocked for the very reason it came into being: people want to lord it over others or not to think about them by assuming that their own experience is the standard and that all others' is deviant and therefore deficient.
