The act of telling people what they can and can't do, according to your own personal viewpoint. This mainly extends to interests, hobbies, things they enjoy. Used most often by social justice bloggers on the website Tumblr, often turning to mass hate on people whose interests do not fall within the strict guidelines of what these bloggers deem acceptable for the masses. There are blogs set up literally so people can anonymously say they enjoy these things without being attacked. I'm pretty sure totalitarian governments do exactly the same thing.
"You can't watch (insert any tv show here) because the main character is a white male and the show makes offensive jokes. You are the scum of the earth if you enjoy it."

"If you like (insert anything here) then unfollow me immediately, because you do not understand social justice and I will not be associated with you!"

"I really enjoy Family Guy, I think it makes good social comment and it makes me laugh-" "Get off Tumblr! You don't belong here, you piece of shit. Go kill yourself you sexist racist homophobic transphobic privileged fuck!"

"I'm not putting any of my interests on tumblr, there is always something "problematic" with them." "Policing social justice bloggers?" "Yeah."

When your friend tries to enforce the rules upon you, when it's for a stupid reason. The rules being broken are usually minor rules that schools or the law enforce.
