Probably long overdue, but I looked up what 'woke' means.

"The act of being very pretentious about how much you care about a social issue"

Yes.

This (referred to in the article) is also good. “When the BBC promoted a smartphone app to help women speak up in meetings, it was merely toeing the standard feminist line on the intrinsic fragility of women. So we are left with the curious phenomenon of good people who are opposed to misogyny subscribing to an essentially misogynistic perspective.”

This too is worthy of note: "In the name of anti-racism, identity politics has rehabilitated racial thinking." I would have written, 'racist thinking.'

But aren't women as a group more emotionally fragile than men as a group? If yes, then there is nothing misogynistic about pointing this out. Right?

>> If yes, then there is nothing misogynistic about pointing this out. Right?

I think you are up against the difficulty of it being forbidden to voice even the truths that are acknowledged by received wisdom. I.e. it's OK for feminists to say or imply that women as a group more emotionally fragile than men as a group. But it's not OK for you to say it. Not only can you not say what may be true, but you cannot say what they acknowledge as true.

If it's true, then it is OK for anyone to say it. To hell with these Pee Cee idiots.

I say 'to hell with them' not because they are women, but because they are destructive, vicious, reality-denying idiots. I love women -- and I am not being sarcastic or sly.
