Or SJW. A term that bigots use to insult people who don't like their bigotry - someone who fights against discrimination and hatred, annoying people who like to discriminate and to hate. Hard to believe that basically calling somebody as righteous as Martin Luther King Jr. is now an insult, but the Internet is a sad, sad place.
It's always hilarious to hear SJW used as an insult. "Social justice warrior" is the basic plot of most '80s action shows and cartoons. Arriving in places and fighting against discrimination? The A-Team were social justice warriors. It's practically a synonym for Knight Rider. Insulting someone for respecting other people is like insulting them for masturbating -- the fact you don't do it has way more to do with why you're so upset all the time.

Original definition; A person who is actually a bully that hides behind social justice to attack people. In recent years the term has come to mean anyone who;

1. Acknowledges that there is a rape culture

2. Doesn't believe that transgender people are mentally ill

3. Recognizes that white privilege exists

4. Admits that feminism is beneficial to society

In other words, the term has lost all meaning.
If telling someone that they shouldn't use autistic as an insult makes me a social justice warrior, I'll gladly own that label.

A social justice warrior (or SJW) is a juvenile coming of age who suddenly discovers there’s injustice in the world and demands to know, right now: “OMG!!! Who let this happen?!!!”

Fat whiners who lack any competence in STEM fields and use it as an excuse to gripe about the "patriarchy" without providing a sound definition for it.
"If you want to be an effective member in society, join the police. If you want to look like a purple haired slug, become one of those Social Justice Warriors. Trust me, the two are very different."

A person who feels superior towards, and dislikes, the rest of humanity; and who tries to hide that fact by claiming that it's actually everybody else who feels superior toward and dislikes others.
A good Social Justice Warrior could even make Martin Luther King Jr feel guilty about being racist!

The term Social Justice Warrior (SJW) is one that reflects the ironic tone of postmodernism. Only under an ideology that supposes that nothing has meaning or value could a term come to mean its exact opposite—in this case, on the basis that care isn't cool. Essentially, SJWs are people who care a lot about humanity, but because modern, Western, white men have been convinced that caring is trite and "irrational" (even if all human behavior is necessarily irrational), they feel threatened by people caring. They lash out at people for caring by pejoratively referring to them as SJWs, all the while claiming that only "objectivity" (a completely impossible concept) matters and that we should all simply look out for ourselves.
That lady with the pink armpit hair is a real Social Justice Warrior; she was commenting on and on about children in Africa, Southeast Asia, and Latin America, as though anyone's supposed to care. *Sips Diet Coke™ while mashing on iPhone™* I mean, we get it—people die and it's our fault. Can't she just write in a blog or on Tumblr or something, instead of having to rub her irrational, normative righteousness in everyone's faces?
