If I were a betting man, I'd wager that 'awareness' has increased at roughly the same rate as in the increase in 'confusion about what the term means.' Maybe the trend is more like "as awareness increases, broadening of the term toward meaninglessness increases."

Based on how I see/hear it used, I'd say it already mostly means "actions we don't approve of, by the people who are not us...boooo! hissss!"

Views expressed are always my own and not my employer's, my church's, my family's, my neighbors', or my pets'. The house plants have authorized me to speak for them, however, and they always agree with me.
