What is woke, and the woke ideology. It is the new term for what the right use to call PC or politically correct. What is that? It is being nice, being tolerant of those that are different from them, being civil in discussions and in public. One definition from dictionary.com is;
adjective : having or marked by an active awareness of systemic injustices and prejudices, especially those involving the treatment of ethnic, racial, or sexual minorities.
What is wrong with that? Being aware that there are people being treated unfairly. Unless you are a racist bigot who wants to be rude, hurtful / harmful, and demeaning to others in public without suffering the consequences of those actions. It is a small group of people demanding the country allow them to target people they hate and dislike. They want the society of the 1950s where white people were the controlling authority in society always assumed to be in charge and above people of color. They want a society that allowed men to demean and boss women around because men were unquestioningly in charge and women have no authority. They want a time when there was little or no public recognition of any LGBTQ+ people and those in that community were openly targeted for harm / abuse. That is what these maga want. This is the goal of the anti-gay, anti-trans, and anti-social progress.
I was once called a snowflake on Ark’s blog because I championed fixing social injustice. I did not know what the term meant, and I said I was happy to be a snowflake as I thought it meant an individual. Guess what I wear the title of social justice warrior proudly. Helping those that are being unfairly attacked or targeted for abuse just for being a person of color or a member of the LGBTQ+ community is something to be proud of. As I once mentioned safe spaces started in cities to let kids who were being abused at home or on their way to or from school by bullies / drug dealers / gang members know where they could go for help, where they could go to be safe. I remember the advertisements on TV showing kids running from danger seeing the sign on fire stations or other businesses and dashing inside in relief. I thought conservatives wanted to protect kids, but they mocked and derided safe spaces as a horrible thing. Hugs
Critics of “woke” policies are usually pretty skeptical about snowflakes calling for safe spaces—but Marjorie Taylor Greene is suddenly all for the idea. The Georgia lawmaker even went so far as to claim that MAGA Republicans “deserve” one of their own. “We’re fed up with Democrat policies, we’re fed up with the woke ideology being shoved down our throat, and we’re tired of our children being brainwashed into these same ideas,” Greene told Sean Hannity on Fox News on Tuesday. “We want our own safe space and we deserve it,” Greene added while discussing her recent advocacy for a “national divorce” between red and blue states. Commenting on Greene’s remarks, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) tweeted: “Republicans ridiculed ‘safe spaces’ and called people ‘snowflakes’, this coming from one of their leaders is literally hilarious.”

Totally off-topic, but science-y and also cool: https://www.freetheocean.com/journal/swimming-cougars-take-to-the-sea/
On topic, conservatives have all the space, and they make all the space safe for themselves because they are armed. They need safe spaces-ha. Whiners.
