It's a fascinating language, wokish.

What does "okay" mean in this example, and, by implication, what does "not okay" mean? Inevitably, the ever-present "problematic" – what's that? How can "having an opinion" be okay or not?

Curiously, while M-W was quick to update the definitions of "racism", or "woman" (if I remember correctly), or "preference", it still does not have definitions suitable for adequately annotating this utterance.
