A moral relativist is one with a snarky attitude and bloated sense of self-importance. They can be found loitering about college campus' for years on end in multiple graduate school programs. If you are unfortunate to have one in your freshman philosophy class they will ask "questions" that are not so carefully disguised claims of superiority over the professor and all other students. Often known to despise organized religion and wear anti-religious bigotry on his/her sleeve, while displaying outrage at all other forms of bigotry. They become loud and angry if you point out that such outrage ironically hinges on moral absolutism.
- There is no right and wrong, there is only perception of right and wrong.
- Is that so? Well you won't mind if I do this.
::smacks moral relativist in the mouth::
- OW! Why did you do that?
- I perceived it as the right thing to do during this conversation.
