Are you constantly offended by almost everything you come across? Are you completely so individually bereft of talent or intelligence or self-worth that you feel the need to identify with your race, gender, sexual preference, or even a non-human? Do you prefer getting your views via Facebook and Tumblr memes instead of actually forming your own opinions? Is your definition of common words completely different than 99% of the populations? Do you believe that your political beliefs make you a good person as opposed to your actions? Do you prefer other people telling you what to believe because it is so much easier than even looking it up on Wikipedia? Are your feelings more important than facts? Do you view yourself as a protector of minorities, women, gays, and the transgendered, but will use sexist insults, racial slurs, and the word "f----t" when a homosexual, minority, woman, or a transgendered person doesn't agree with you?

If you an answered "Yes" to most of these; being a Social Justice Warrior is for you. If you answered "No" to most of these; you are a worthless cis-het s--tlord rape apologizing racist!

Many of you will be lucky enough to not know what a Social Justice Warrior is and I envy your ignorance. Social Justice Warrior (or SJW) is someone who believes in a ill-defined intersectional morass of Feminism, anti-racism, anti-colonialism, Marxism (sorta), and an every shifting hodgepodge of other Leftist ideology. What do they specifically believe? Well, there is the problem. It is constantly shifting and what they believe one day will might quickly change the next. One day Karl Marx might be heralded as a bold visionary who saw the inherent racism and sexism of capitalism and didn't specifically mention those his writings because that would have been even more dangerous for him than calling for an international armed revolt. The next day Karl Marx will be lambasted as hateful "Dead White Male" who contributed nothing to Leftist thought of value and he probably raped some women down the line or something. By the time you have gotten this far into the opening post; they will have changed beliefs several times.

Let's just one thing straight here. A Social Justice Warrior isn't just a left-leaning person or someone with certain sympathies. Being anti-racist or supporting gay rights or even being a Feminist doesn't make you a Social Justice Warrior. It is a behavior and an attitude on life. I would argue that they are an even bigger threat to Liberals and the Left in general than they are to those on the Right. Some of their biggest "victories" have been against movements and organizations that have traditionally been Leftist and since they are already on the Left; they will poison mainstream Liberalism before they ever touch a gun rights group. Take a look at Occupy Wall Street for example. OWS isn't exactly known as a Right-wing movment (although a few people on the Right did sympathize with its anti-bailout and anti-corruption views); OWS was basically a Leftist populist movement that's main focus was ending the collusion between major financial institutions and the government. However, the SJWs infested OWS and it quickly stopped being about corporate and government corruption and started focusing on things like fighting the "Cultural Appropriation" of white people wearing dreadlocks and setting up "Rape Free Zones" and they eventually drove out a lot of the original founders and OWS collapsed under its own stupidity.

Another example is the SJW infestation of the Atheist Movement a few years back that almost destroyed the movement as a coherent entity. For years the Social Justice Warriors were always complaining that there were too many Libertarians and regular Liberals and not enough hardcore Progressives. The SJWs were complaining that too many of the prominent atheists were white men and they constantly pushed for greater representation of women; namely a woman by the name of Rebecca Watson. They finally had a chance to cause a rift in the atheist community when Rebecca Watson made a passive-aggressive video complaining about a man in an elevator asking her out when she left an afterparty at an atheist convention and then politely accepting her declining his offer. She also wrote several passive-aggressive articles about the "incident" as well and would repeatedly mention it in her speaking engagements too. People within the movement started making fun of her for turning such a mundane incident into an ordeal. Evolutionary Biologist and prominent atheist Richard Dawkins wrote a hypothetical letter to the Muslim women of the world comparing their plight of having their clitoris' removed with broken glass and having to where beekeeper outfits to the horror of having a guy ask you out for coffee in an elevator. The Social Justice Warriors used this as an example that the Atheist Movement was inherently sexist and there needed to be a change. The change they proposed was "Atheism Plus" or "A+" which meant that they were not only atheists, but atheists plus Feminists plus anti-Racists plus they supported Social Justice plus they supported left-wing economics. The thing is that even many of the people who joined Atheism Plus weren't Progressive enough for any of the leaders and their websites, forum, and conventions quickly devolved into people being banned, expelled, and denounced in ways that would have given Stalin a throbber. Atheism Plus is pretty much dead, there are still a few websites and "RationalWiki", but for the most part it is a dead because it was a movement that ate its own.

For an example of Watson's passive-aggressive whining and ironclad logic:

Social Justice Warriors never build their own things, they merely try and take over and destroy that which was built by others. The people in the Social Justice movement aren't just some good people with the occasional wacky idea. No. They are bad people and a large minority of them are downright evil. They routinely use doxxing, harassment, and attempting to get people fired from their jobs because they expressed opinions SJWs don't like. They infilrate forums and Wikipedia to further their ideas and silence dissent. Don't believe me? Look up Social Justice Warriors like Sandra Harding (most famous as the Feminist academic who called Issac Newton's Principia Mathematica a "rape manual") and look how much criticism of her or her hypothesis are present in the article. Look up other radical Feminists like Andrea Dworkin or Valerie Solanas or Amanda Marcotte and compare them to someone like Camille Paglia or Christina Hoff Sommers and see who has more quotes critical of the subject and who has more quotes taken out of context. They have an Orwellian belief that those who control the narrative are the ones who control the truth and they go out of their way to seek positions where they can shut down conversations.

This is all well and good, but these people are starting to have influence in real-life that goes beyond the internet or marginal political movements. SJWs have had speaking events cancelled at several universities. SJWs have demanded a law professor not teach rape law because learning about it would be "triggering" to rape survivors. SJWs created the kind of climate on university campuses that allowed so many people to be fooled by the Duke Lacrosse Rape Hoax and the UVA Rape Hoax and many SJWs still believe the accused are guilty. The thing is that Social Justice Warriors are at their strongest in university campuses where the "leaders of tomorrow" are getting their education. These are the people who will be becoming civil servants, politicians, lawyers, and educators. These are the people who are fighting their hardest to make sure that not only do they never learn any fact that contradicts their ideology, but nobody else does either. They believe that due process, the presumption of innocence, the scientific method, artistic freedom, freedom of speech, intellectual inquiry, and logical reasoning are merely creations of "Dead White Men" and exist to further a Sexist, Racist, Neo-Colonial Kyriarchy and are of no value in a decent society and should be destroyed. They are not only ignorant, stupid, hateful, but downright dangerous if we don't keep an eye on them because these people are intellectual and ethical dry rot.

And just for the fun of it. Here is the Social Justice Wiki. See how far you can read before you burst out laughing:

Ignorant, sometimes well meaning but just as often angry people looking for a fight about anything. It's fueled by the desire to be part of a movement (and that can be a positive and a REAL BAD negative, depending on the way the wind blows). Young people especially jump on bandwagons with more zeal than sense or knowledge, which is why they usually go straight to "calling out" everyone rather than living and learning whatever values they claim to support and how it fits into the big picture called LIFE. Online I've seen examples of people putting down folks in the same camp with decades more experience than them, a person who just recently joined the movement. It would be funny but it's so sad and not limited to social justice warriors.

That's my experience.

Another example is when Will Wheaton made a comment about liking "spirit animals" and was attacked by a bunch of white people attacking him for "stealing" Native American culture. He said that he merely liked the idea and didn't mean to cause offense and even used examples of oppression Native Americans have faced and that reaction had the same reaction as bleeding in front of sharks. They went at him harder because he wasn't ignorant of Native American history.

They are awful, immature people and they are starting cross into real-life.

I dislike the argument that starts out with the idea that people can only have different beliefs if someone is feeding it to them.

Its life. Not everyone is going to agree with you and those beliefs can be as real and sincere as yours.

Great Wall of Text.

You're never going to rid society of the social justice warrior. They feel validated by fighting for some sort of justice no matter the cause. I really think they just like fighting and arguing on the internet.

Too bad most won't bother to actually read the OP here and will comment anyway.


You ever heard the expression about using 2 words and five? Don't use 5 words when 2 will do.

Well this example is kind of humorous because Wil Wheaton is himself an ignorant leftist who did his own share of trashing people for committing the heinous sin of not being liberal enough for him. I've seen him interviewed about how stupid and evil people are for not seeing the wisdom in his views on gun control.

It's funny when liberals turn on each other and end up having a heaping dose of their own medicine served up to them.

SJWs are a plague on society. They are parasites who build nothing and destroy everything they come in contact with.
