Social Justice Warrior. A pejorative term for an individual who repeatedly and vehemently engages in arguments on social justice on the Internet, often in a shallow or not well-thought-out way, for the purpose of raising their own personal reputation. A social justice warrior, or SJW, does not necessarily strongly believe all that they say, or even care about the groups they are fighting on behalf of. They typically repeat points from whoever is the most popular blogger or commenter of the moment, hoping that they will "get SJ points" and become popular in return. They are very sure to adopt stances that are "correct" in their social circle.

The SJW's favorite activity of all is to dogpile. Their favorite websites to frequent are Livejournal and Tumblr. They do not have relevant favorite real-world places, because SJWs are primarily civil rights activists only online.

A social justice warrior reads an essay about a form of internal misogyny where women and girls insult stereotypical feminine activities and characteristics in order to boost themselves over other women.

The SJW absorbs this and later complains in response to a Huffington Post article about a 10-year-old feminist's letter, because the 10-year-old called the color pink "prissy".


Commnter: "I don't like getting manicures. It's too prissy."

SJW: "Oh my god, how fucking dare you use that word, you disgusting sexist piece of shit!"

SJW stands for "Social Justice Warrior", however its actual meaning has changed several times, and even now depends on context.

Originally the term was positive, with figures such as Martin Luther King Jr. and Mahatma Gandhi being described as such when praised for their work in bringing justice and equality to oppressed groups. Examples of its use as a term of praise go back as far as 1824, and this continued to be the meaning of the term up until around 2011.

In 2011 several events, primarily Gamergate, led to the term becoming a pejorative. Many began to use the term to describe people who were overly sensitive and quick to insult anyone who said something they perceived as attacking or oppressing some group of people, even when it wasn't warranted. Basically, anyone who overreacted to a perceived slight against a person or group of people.

However, the term has continued to evolve. While the previous definition sometimes applies, it's now often used simply as an excuse to dismiss things other people say without having to think about them at all, regardless of whether or not they have a valid point. In other words, it's increasingly used as if it's a "get out of jail free" card for insulting entire groups of people. This watering down of the meaning is slowly turning the term into a meaningless insult.
Early: "The late Reverend King's work as a social justice warrior helped lead to the integration of all races in our schools today."

Mid: "All I said was that maybe she overreacted, and the SJW accused me of oppressing all women!"

Late: "She should get off YouTube and make me a sandwich. And before any of you SJWs complain, it's just a joke."

Abbreviation for Social Justice Warrior. A person who says is all about equality, but it reality, wants a certain group/groups to be more superior that their enemy, the white, straight, cisgender male.

They are often highly overweight, have dyed hair (usually pink or some other bright color) in strange ass hairstyles, run Tumblr blogs, love being offended and find practically anything offensive, and think that any opinion that opposes their own is a hate crime. They also use "check your privilege" unironically, and would do anything in their power to take you down if you disagree with even the smallest thing that they believe in. Often believe there are over 100 genders and sexualities and would label themselves as several of them on their Tumblr pages even though doing so can contradict one another (i.e. Being binary yet non-binary, being pan yet lesbian, etc.) only to be a special snowflake. In addition to that, would use absurd pronouns (i.e. Xir, Ze, Zim, They, Them, etc.).

Take caution when encountering these whales, especially if you're white, straight, skinny, cis, not disabled, and/or a normal ass human being.

Short for "Social Justice Warrior" these types of people get triggered by essentially anything that doesn't fit in their bubble. They often want every form of media to be "Politically correct" so they don't get triggered by it. Often degrades and swears at others who don't agree with them.
