In the broadest sense, a social justice warrior is a person that uses complex serious social, economic and political issues as a way to further their own agenda by claiming they are fighting to "correct a wrong"

Specifically, it is used to refer to people claim to be fighting for social justice but are actually validating their own ego, looking for special treatment, or attention.

Ironically Social justice warriors cause more harm to their causes than good, as they are often ill-informed, are uninterested in dicussing issues as they are more interested in being "right", and aggressivley attack all who disagree.
I understand and respect that Karen is a vegan but every time we go out to eat she calls me a monster for eating meat, and constantly talks about how "she is saving the world by being vegan".

She just wants attention and wants to feel special, she is such a social justice warrior

An extremely irrational, spoiled person, often a millennial who thinks it is up to them to change the world. Also known at an SJW. Typically, an SJW is very easily brainwashed by far-left college professors. Very often, they have never had to actually perform physical work in their spoiled lives, and this is reinforced by parents who pay their baby's entire college bill. Very often, an SJW will pass their time protesting, often wearing masks and performing violent acts against people and property. There have been many cases of SJWs attacking people merely for wearing a Trump hat. When presented with ideas differing from their own view, the average SJW fires back with accusations of racism.
"If your Social Justice Warrior ideas are so good and noble, why do you need to wear a mask while you're marching in the protest? ...And why do you have a hidden club?"

A word synonymous to retard, even though they claim to advocate for equal rights. Similar to traditional feminists, in that they fight for women, but different in that they see cis white males as the bane of all existences.

Under the pretense of equality advocation, they fight for a new social order, which is pretty much the social class in the 1800s inversed.
Friend1: Does that trans black women really think that transgenders and blacks are not able to be racist?
Friend2: Oh, She's just a social justice warrior

Usually people that need to believe they are fighting for social justice in order to feel validated regardless of whether their arguments have any logic or truth to them.
Social justice warriors would make this case: If he is drunk and she is drunk and they have sex, then there cannot be consent and he is a rapist.
