According to Wikipedia, the "Me Too" movement (or "#MeToo", with local alternatives in other languages) spread virally in October 2017 as a hashtag used on social media to help demonstrate the widespread prevalence of sexual assault and harassment, especially in the workplace. It followed soon after the public revelations of sexual misconduct allegations against Harvey Weinstein. The phrase created by Tarana Burke was popularized by Alyssa Milano when she encouraged women to tweet it to "give people a sense of the magnitude of the problem". Since then, the phrase has been posted online millions of times, often with an accompanying personal story of sexual harassment or assault.

The 'Woke Mind Virus'

from The Gray Area:

The 'Woke Mind Virus' is a term coined by Elon Musk as his way of responding to the left's obsession with the need for dramatic cultural change and fundamentally changing this country. Media and political pundits, who subscribe to WMV, complain Musk cannot define this virus. The reason the left-wing media is challenging Musk’s explanation of WMV is because they are trying to present woke as a made up concept by the right. If they can message that the right cannot explain what woke means, that will reinforce their narrative that it is made up by the right wing. The left does the same thing with Antifa. Antifa, they say it’s just an idea, made up to be a boogieman by the right.. However, if you’re not careful, that idea might hit you in the back of the head while you fwalk through most any Americ an down town at the wrong time.

Truth is, in the Wall Street Journal article below, Musk, on separate occasions, gives at least 5 complementary definitions for the 'virus'. While it is also true that more can be said about the WMV, Musk explains the concept well. As WMV drive issues like CRT, DEI, sexism, racism and as he says, all the 'isms', there could be a study providing detail into the 'virus', how it has been created and the damage (already apparent) that is being done by those who pray to the gods of wokeism. Actually there are books to this affect, too; 'Awake, Not Woke' and ''Unwoke: How to defeat Cultural Marxism in America.'
