What is a Social Justice Warrior? :conf:

Technically it's someone who fights for social issues but the term is used ironically on people who get offended by anything.
It's a generally derogatory term for someone who is perceived to aggressively fight for equality movements online, I assume the 'warrior' part is sarcasm similar to the term 'keyboard warrior'. I've seen a few people on here try to reclaim the title but it's usually applied to opponents rather than worn by activists.
Okay, putting this in the most neutral terms I can think of, since it tends to make people get really damn angsty for some reason.
"Someone who writes stuff on the internet about social issues, usually issues related to race, gender and/or sexuality."
It's a vaguely insulting term, similar to "white knight", generally used by people who disapprove of their views.
Dissapointed in themselves so they make high standards for everyone else to live by.
So if I start a thread that wonders about a possible decline of intelligence in our modern society, I could be labeled an SJW? Depending on my wording, perhaps?
It's a term mostly used to refer to people on the Internet who go overboard in their attempts to create, well, social justice. To be more precise, it refers to the kind of people who find anything and everything offensive. The kind of people who seem like they're constantly looking for something to feel offended by, just so they can complain about it and feel morally superior.
I just came up with the perfect definition of the stereotypical SJW: Somebody who does all of their "activism" through posts on the Internet, and care more about excessive political correctness than actual issues.
In reality, original meaning was someone who fights for social justice (equality, rights etc)

But, this is internet
It seems to be an all-purpose derogatory term for people who call out racist/bigoted/ignorant people for making racist/bigoted/ignorant comments on the web. It probably has some legitimate definition as well but fucked if I ever encountered it.
It's a term that basically become shorthand for insulting someone for holding a certain political view. It's kind of how like right wing Americans have turned liberal into a dirty word.

Personally I lose a little bit of faith in humanity every time I see the term used. The implication being that caring about race/gender/sexuality topics is a BAD thing.
a social justice warrior in my opinion is somebody who acts politically correct though it's all just to show his/her supposed moral superiority.

in contrast

a social justice activist is somebody who strives to achieve social justice and who actively tries to inform others and change things for the better.

i think it's important to maintain that difference between the terms, the SJW doesn't actually strive to better the world merely show others he's better than them.
Fuck it, let's try an Academic approach.

Social Justice.

Line breaks: so¦cial jus|tice
Noun (mass noun)
Justice in terms of the distribution of wealth, opportunities, and privileges within a society:
individuality gives way to the struggle for social justice
Source: www.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/social-justice?q=social+justice

Now, I can't find a solid dictionary definition for Social Justice Warrior, but I did find several sources which gave an attempt at a definition. Here is a relatively unbiased one:

Social Justice Warrior
Noun
A Social Justice Warrior or SJW is someone who takes to heart various causes that pertain to Social Justice. Be it fighting for People of Colour (PoC) or Gender/Sexual Minorities (GSM), the Social Justice Warrior usually believes in intersectionality, the idea that oppression occurs in society across a variety of mediums and is all controlled by a central systematic culture, or Kyriarchy. SJW are most prominent on their safe space, the internet, normally using either tumblr or live journal to blog on.
Source: internetobservationproject.com/social-justice-warrior-definition/

Between the two above, I have provided what can be seen as the basis of a Social Justice Warrior. However, you want the meaning of slang, every day term. I have some more sources, but these will seem biased, but all semantic meaning is. I have chosen a very popular source which would have had the most public scrutiny; Urban Dictionary, where it is the public who submits the definitions and effectively edits it in "trial by fire".

Social Justice Warrior

A pejorative term for an individual who repeatedly and vehemently engages in arguments on social justice on the Internet, often in a shallow or not well-thought-out way, for the purpose of raising their own personal reputation. A social justice warrior, or SJW, does not necessarily strongly believe all that they say, or even care about the groups they are fighting on behalf of. They typically repeat points from whoever is the most popular blogger or commenter of the moment, hoping that they will "get SJ points" and become popular in return. They are very sure to adopt stances that are "correct" in their social circle.

The SJW's favorite activity of all is to dogpile. Their favorite websites to frequent are Livejournal and Tumblr. They do not have relevant favorite real-world places, because SJWs are primarily civil rights activists only online.
Source: www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=social%20justice%20warrior

Now, Know Your Meme does cover the criticisms of the Social Justice blogging movement.

However, the group has been criticized for propagating unreliable information and espousing slacktivism and herd mentality, as reflected in the pejorative term "social justice warriors.
...
Criticism:
The concept of social justice blogging been criticized by outsiders of the community as being overzealous and self-righteous. In response to the pervasive nature of social justice bloggers on Tumblr, anti-social justice blogs had begun to surface by early 2011, including Fuck No Tumblr Social Justice Warrior[8] in May 2011, Shit Social Justice Allies Say in May 2012, Silly Social Justice in June 2012 and Fuck No Social Justice Warriors[9] in July 2012.

To summarise an actual answer to your question, I shall try to provide a definition to Social Justice Warrior.

Social Justice Warrior.

(see: Social Justice, Social Justice Blogging, "Check Your Privilege")
Noun
1. A person who takes it upon themselves to actively campaign for issues of social justice, meaning the imbalances of sex, race, gender, wealth and other possible privileges.
2. (Pejorative in nature) A person who is seen as overzealous, unreasonable, uneducated or hypocritical in their views or statements in regards to support of social justice
Source: I thought of it, so I'll write it up later and slap on a source. See below.
leon-declis.squarespace.com/articles-on-society/sjw-definition BAM!

www.escapistmagazine.com/forums/read/18.856337-What-is-a-Social-Justice-Warrior

I don't personally like the term because there are (and have been) 'social justice' activists who fight on behalf of people who are truly being subjected to injustice (sometimes it costs them their lives), and in a general sense anyone fighting injustice could be labeled a social justice activist thus using the term 'social justice warrior' as an insulting term that can be thrown around half hazard seems counter-intuitive.

Or am I a social justice warrior for taking issue with the term social justice warrior :O

hi annabelle -
Let's ask someone recently criminally evicted / in a wheelchair denied benefits / had their children stolen by the State ( abused and murdered) / forced to take psychotropic drugs - harmful medical treatments - vaccinations / endure smart meters - wifi / live with weaponized weather / eat unlabelled gmo's / have their schools run by private corps / drink contaminated water / have cash and property confiscated by cops / find themselves in corrupt courts / the list is endless.......cus these days I have little time for race/gender/sexuality.......... other than blacks should stop killing each other and gays should not be given other peoples' children .
All causes get infiltrated , even created by the zionist ruling 'elite' - the purpose have never been to design a fair , egalitarian society , that must be obvious to all .
I tend to think the " race/gender/sexuality " issues have served their purpose ( one is either totally brainwashed by it or not ) past it's sell by date and much bigger issues now need our attention . ( Countries were being flooded whilst we twiddled out thumbs with this one ) .

I agree with this - they came out of college with what 50 yrs ago would have been a 9th grade education ( 14 - 15 yrs old ) - GCE's i sat back then were more in-depth than a BA is today that gets a job at starbucks.......thing is these kids know the future isn't bright but can't see further than what their told to see - they think their 'free thinkers' when in reality their the most indoctrinated generation around , esp.in the States, Europeans are having to wake up very quickly with the invasion and know it wasn't their next door neighbour.

What I was taking issue with was the use of the term 'Social Justice Warrior' as an insult... I was not agreeing with 'SJW's or what it is they represent as it can apparently be confusing and that is the problem. Different people think it means different things like understandably thinking that activists or genuine social justice activists may be being insulted. As for the part that was bolded, that was just humor on my part in a serious topic. :facepalm:

Elite forces control the left and the right in the political sphere. The leftist forces are predominant yet I don't see the mid right or even the right-wing putting a dent in the leftist forces on a political/elitist level, they are in cahoots. What I see is a lot of divide and conquer strategy. A lot of leftist bullshit and propaganda being exposed (in the alternative media) but also insults and derogatory ideology thrown in towards vulnerable or low income people who are suffering or struggling and in need of assistance, and that I have seen being done by right-wing sources in the alternative media. On a world scale gender and sexuality are still issues when it comes to such things as the need for safe shelters/sex slavery/honor killings/forced marriages/rapes and how to deal with it/protection of women including elderly women (and men) living alone some who live with little means of support/child prostitution/porn industry-media sexualisation of youth and children etc... All the other issues listed are top of the list but these issues are still here.

Don't forget Der Donald. He too is being portrayed as someone who knows exactly what a formidable force he is up against, but gives no fucks because he is his own man and can't be told what to do. What are the chances, eh?

#1:

A social justice warrior reads an essay about a form of internal misogyny where women and girls insult stereotypical feminine activities and characteristics in order to boost themselves over other women.

The SJW absorbs this and later complains in response to a Huffington Post article about a 10-year-old feminist's letter, because the 10-year-old called the color pink "prissy".

#2:
Commnter: "I don't like getting manicures. It's too prissy."

SJW: "Oh my god, how fucking dare you use that word, you disgusting sexist piece of shit!"

"Raising personal reputation" seems a bit of a lame accusation against someone posting entirely anonymously. If someone is openly using social media as a way to pontificate about social justice without ever getting off their arse and doing something more productive about it, then SJW might be a suitable lazy perjorative, but there are real social justice warriors out there who risk life and liberty for the causes they believe in, and the right-wing inclined hate that, so have to demean them.

That video just about sums up the monster which the left has mutated into. Hence the term SJW. Nothing wrong with wanting Social justice of course, that's a good thing, but in the case of the radical left (where 99% of modern day so called SJW's stem from) it's just another one of those things where they've applied positive terminology to a socially destructive movement. It's all very Orwellian. History will not look kindly on these people and their authoritarian perversion of true social justice..

Oh shut up with your shallow circle jerk one-liners and silly questions, rag-nag-troll. I think you know very well where it's coming from and who they are. You just want to try and ridicule everything and everybody that exposes the ''Social Justice'' bullying and self righteous authoritarianism that the left has mutated into. Like I said, History will not look back on you leftards favourably.

Nope. It's you who should either put up or stfu. You are claiming a mighty left wing conspiracy exists to make the right wing endure things that grind their gears. Name the main collaborators and their means of influence, or give your paranoid fantasising a rest. Claiming that people considered perjoratively as sjw's are part of an insidious plot, but refusing to state who the instigators and beneficiaries are is lazy conspiratorial thinking.

I never claimed any such thing. I think both the far left and the far right are controlled. I consider myself down the middle, regardless of my sympathy for National Socialism, which by the way I don't see as a far right movement either.

There definitely is a movement on the radical left to undermine and destroy Western Culture. Cultural Marxism is a far leftist movement and an ideology which pushes the false idea and lie that the West is the cause of all injustice and inequalities in the World. The far left and Cultural Marxism is the cause and main influence of corrosive Political Correctness and anti-free speech in the West, and in the West only. You don't see it anywhere else in the World, the reason being it was purposefully constructed to undermine and destroy Western Civilization. That's no conspiracy theory either, it's fact, and we see it's corrosive effects everywhere in the West today. Cultural Marxism and Political Correctness is the cause of the decline of social sciences, higher culture, true social justice, and civilization in the Western world.

Purposefully constructed by who? How much of this "cultural marxist diluting of culture" is just a result of the west having to pretend it has a free press and such ideas inevitably surfacing, as opposed to deliberate "corruption" of the populace?
