An abbreviation for "Social Justice Warrior", a term that once referred to a person who fights for civil rights issues not because they care, but in order to boost their own ego. Has since been commandeered by certain movements and is now typically used to mean "anyone that I disagree with", especially if said person shows any support for feminism or other progressive causes. Has become a way for some reactionary groups to pretend that they're working against some united front of progressives that are secretly controlling everything from review scores to politics, as opposed to a general shift in the public social consensus.
