I use the word woke frequently - simply to get a reaction out of my kids (25, 21, 17). I have no idea what I’m saying. I do this in addition to texting them a Dad joke daily. If I really want to gross them out I tell them Mom and I are going to play naked Twister. That sends them scurrying like cockroaches when the lights come on. It brings me great joy.
Originally posted by Ryanp225: Last week I was accused of "throwing shade" by my lgbtqys niece. Whatever the fuck that stupid nonsense is supposed to mean. All I said to her dad was that I could see the manufacturing sector in CO is definitely up thanks to President Trump. We both just rolled our eyes at her and continued our conversation.
The way I know it "throwing shade" means to talk negatively about someone, or to portray them negatively.
Either the meaning has shifted, which is possible, or your niece interpreted what you were saying as a personal insult, which is what I'd have my money on.
You talked about Trump with positivity, this is a direct insult to any and everyone who sees him as enemy#1. Same type of reasoning that wearing a MAGA hat means they get to assault you.
