Being "woke" is acting over-emotional and they are indeed the modern version of religious fundamentalists. What's scary is that a lot of people in power and prestige actually take them seriously.

Yes. "Political correctness" has long had a tendency to go overboard, and become a new kind of "Puritanism".

Political correctness largely depends on the audience. What's kosher on a college campus would send CPAC into an apoplectic meltdown.

What do you think? Is being "Woke" important, or is it just another meme-of-the-year?

So far, 19 out of 30 people consider being 'Woke' as less than important -- 6 even consider being 'Woke' so unimportant that they would rather eat ice cream!
:D

How about a poll: How important is eating ice cream?
