Social Justice Warriors

I love the term “Social Justice Warrior” (or SJW).

Those who fight for social justice never use it. It’s only ever used as an insult by those who do not identify with the title, and anyone who thinks that the term is insulting – that the fight for any sort of justice, social or otherwise, is something *not* worth fighting for – then they automatically identify themselves as idiots, and not worthy of our attention.

It’s esentially shorthand for “You can safely ignore the rest of what I say, as I’m a fucking moron.”

Very helpful.

    You clearly don’t understand why the label is an insult. Because ‘social justice’ is nothing more than a loose connection of grievance cottage industries that make millions for their members. All so-called ‘social justice’ is a scam.

    The opposite of equality is quality.

      Riiiight. Justice is such a terrible concept. Let’s do away with it. Or wait, according to you Gays are just doing away with ‘quality’ by wanting to marry and have the right to hold a job or rent an apartment. Tsk. Tsk. Tsk.

      Nothing like showing yourself for what you are.

    Thanks for your insight, Mark. It’s not that I don’t understand why it’s an insult, it’s that I don’t accept it as an insult for the reasons already given. It’s a shame that you’re against fairness and equality, but every narrative has to have a villain, I suppose…
