I don't think its wrong to want change, and the image you have supplied is just a feminist, who is inverting a normalised sexist phrase. It seems nowadays people say "social justice warrior" in a bad way but then talk about people simply fighting for their rights. I do not see a problem.


No im fully for change (for the right reasons), Im more asking about the weirdos that scream and do dumb stuff

"Why do they judge an entire group of people on one act by a few people and why do they act like complete mongs in public." Isn't this thread doing the exact same thing, which is making an assumption of a group of people based on a few individuals? People do stuff because they believe in what they're fighting for - which is applicable to any group. I tend to see people who aren't SJWs getting far more upset over stupid topics. I see old people getting upset over stupid topics, I see right-wing people getting upset over stupid topics; black, white, left, right, young, old etc what does it matter? They're opinions and they're passionate about them.

If having an opinion on something is now considered "idiotic" then I'm not sure how democracy came around.

People label them social justice warriors because (if we're going to stereotype) the majority live on the internet. 'Social Justice' is an old term dating back to the 1800's but apparently people got bored and decided "Social Justice Warriors" was funny, I guess.

Social justice warrior" (commonly abbreviated SJW) is a pejorative term for an individual promoting socially progressive views, including feminism, civil rights, multiculturalism, and identity politics. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_justice_warrior

I don't really care for them. They're entitled to their opinions and we are not bound by their opinions so I never understood why people get so angry about them.

What I'm trying to say is, SJW is just some stupid word made to label people with socialist views. You don't really need to know anything other than "Do I agree with their ideas?" Y/N. Bang.

If its against those who let their periods bleed on buses, or expect the general public to understand terms that people don't learn about (this being more of a LGBT+ problem) then they're just fighting themselves, creating a bad image for those trying for actual change and just... it annoys me more than those who criticise.

I've never once seen an actual SJW act like how they're depicted. In fact, I never see them (apart from the good old tumblr sjw). It's like they all congregate in one particular spot - and there's always just some nutter there with a camera

In summary, it's a silly word. You're not looking to learn anything, you're just looking for cheap shots and the giggles. If you were honestly looking for their motivations you could just read the signs they're holding and do a small amount of logical deduction.

I ignore SJW's that I pass in the street, much like I would a homeless person that soiled themselves.

Social justice warriors are nothing but well meaing idiot pussies. They say they want to end racism and misogyny, but whine about things like sexist thermostats and the pay gap myth in the west. Meanwhile members of a certain religion like to remove women's clitoris, kill gays and atheists, force women to wear bee keeper suits,etc.
They aren't allowed call out those barbarians because those people aren't white(even though some are).
I've trying to avoid talking about them because I get really irritated.

Misinformation and twisting the meaning of stats are their favorite weapons.
