    Are you " woke "

    It isn’t enough that I never figured out who John Gault is. Now I have to try to figure out why everyone, for the last two years , is using the word “ woke “ when they are implying that someone is or is not aware.

    Can I get a bit of clarification here ?.

    You have to be an “intersectional” to understand, otherwise you could be “gaslighting” us.

    There's nothing intersectional about me; I only like girls...And gaslighting was Dan's field of expertise......Ben

    At my age I don't even like my Squaw. Guess I'm intersectional what ever that is.

    If y'all are not woke enough to be aware of what I am asking, I must be more woke to the present than even I was aware of.

    This came from google. Woke is a slang term that is easing into the mainstream from some varieties of a dialect called African American Vernacular English (sometimes called AAVE). In AAVE, awake is often rendered as woke, as in, “I was sleeping, but now I'm woke.” 'Woke' is increasingly used as a byword for social awareness. . Around here it means do you know, are you aware, are you engaged and so on. I have heard kids say things like maybe there is a concert tonight in town and they would say "hey man you woke to that".

    Glad I don't have any kids around. I doubt I could put up with that crap.

    Around here children and young folk would say, “Like, hey, dude, you woke to that, like ya know, like.”
