it's not about earning "woke points", if that's the attitude you have, you're never going to become woke.
it's about ensuring that the work you leave behind (and the work of your peers that you boost) helps whoever comes after you have less unlearning to do than you did.
i don't want the next trans man to have to unlearn that he's a fake man, i want him to know he's a real man.
i don't want the next autistic person to have to unlearn that they're freaks. i want them to know they're just as worthy of love and support as neurotypical people.

and who do you want living in that world with you?
