So no, wokeness cannot coexist with tolerance.
As computer guys, I guess we are entitled to thinking in binary. It is either 0 or 1, off or on.

Analog guys (actually, 40 years ago there were analog computers as well!) are prepared to handle intermediate values. You can be tolerant up to a point. Maybe more in some areas than in others. Conversely, you go the woke line only so far, you do not go to extremes.

Neither woke nor tolerance is absolute. You should strive to understand where your limits are for either of them. Then spend some time pondering whether you really have good enough reasons to justify these limits.
