OP,
I’m not sure you understand the definition of “woke”. You seem very capable of surviving a zombie apocalypse or car mechanic strike.

I can judge a man by the content of his character.

Maybe you don’t understand “facetious” - your list has nothing to counter or to be compared to being “woke” - you just rattled off some fun skills.

"Woke. ... Woke (/ˈwoʊk/) as a political term refers to an awareness of issues concerning social and racial justice. It is derived from the African-American Vernacular English expression "stay woke", whose grammatical aspect refers to a continuing awareness of these issues."

I can build a computer from scratch.
Meaning take an Intel 8085 or Zilog Z80 and assemble it with all of the necessary TTL chips to make it run.

Perhaps it is you with the too narrow definition of facetious.

I do pretty good with fishing reels....what I have yet have happen is someone was pizzed because I mis gendered them....

I just dont see how being "woke" is having an affect on my life in my little corner of the world.

This is not by accident however. I moved out of the metropolis of Tampa 15 years ago because of the direction local politics was headed....and am damn glad to be gone.

Here in Masaryktown Fla the daily struggle is getting folks to pronounce the name properly.....and I'm tickled that's the worst of our problems.

It aint that hard to pull up and move if things dont suit you....

There's always a catch term that comes around once a year that I cannot stand.

Couple years ago it was "bae." "Totes", "phat", "lit", etc.

"Woke" is right there with it. Any person I see using this term I immediately disregard as an intelligent being.
