Top Definition
An individual that is defined by their constant attacking or addressing of anything they find inappropriate, offensive, or triggering in their eyes. People that promote and address the social issues that truly matter on social media should be applauded, but social justice warriors are in a league of their own. They repeatedly bash any content (even if its innocent) and aggressively call for the downfall of the person who carelessly offended them.

The REAL problem with social justice warriors is their superficial mentality. There are many issues that are heavily affecting many people across the world but these individuals detract from many of the real problems but continuing to address and argue about meaningless topics in order to boost themselves in the eyes of their peers.
Ex:

Person on social media: *Posts a picture of them wearing a sombrero at a costume party*

Social Justice Warrior: This is highly offensive and appropriating Mexican culture. The person who posted this should be condemned to hell forever. They should lose all their followers and be removed off of insert social media here. In fact, I will boycott social media until they address this blatant racism.

We are human beings at our core, excluding our race, color, and culture. Everybody should be respected and treating everything like it should be censored and separated is destroying the very connection that we have with each other. We should be sensitive to the real social issues that plague this world, not the meaningless act or comment another user posted. People are a product of their environment. Social Justice Warriors harm us by focusing on the product instead of looking at the picture as a whole.

If people learned to respect each others' cultures, then the blending of traditions between cultures wouldn't even be considered offensive from the start.
