Quote"Woke" has been a term at the centre of political debate in recent years - and now a new poll shows what Americans think about the word.The USA Today-Ipsos poll released on Wednesday shows most Americans have a positive association with the word, with 56 per cent believing it to have positive connotations as they understand it to mean "to be informed, educated on, and aware of social injustices."Though some divide still remains. 36 per cent of Americans have a negative association with "woke" as they understood it to mean "to be overly politically correct and police others' words."There is also division over whether being described as "woke" is an insult as 40 per cent believe it to be, while 32 per cent see it as a compliment instead.The right often use "woke" negatively in political debate, and this is reflected in the poll where a majority of Republicans (60 percent) consider the word to be an insult, compared to nearly half of Democrats (46 per cent) who take it as a compliment when asked how they would respond if someone called them "woke."[Continues . . .]

Quote from: Asmodean on June 12, 2023, 03:36:29 PMIndeed, that is closer to the reality I, for one, inhabit.I do take issue with "us," specifically me, opposing another citizen's rights though. (As in, any right that we both have, but I somehow begrudge them) I have never in my adult life done so. I oppose special rights for me that another citizen does not have, and as a direct consequence, oppose special rights for another citizen, that I do not have.
