sjw is an acronym for 'social justice warrior'. it used to have a positive meaning, because social justice is a good thing, right? but, it seems to offend racist, sexist or homophobic people that they can't get away with hating other people for no reason whatsoever, so they took a classic example of a 'white feminist' (a person who does not include other oppressed groups in their 'feminism') and started calling them sjws, even though that's not the real meaning of the word. words that are frequently associated with the racist,homophobic, sexist definition of a sjw are triggered and such, even though they are as misinterpreted as sjw. in other words, this version of the term is created by people who have nothing else to do with their life than make a false image of the people who are trying to do something good.
someone: lmao i'm not homophobic but honestly gay people are disgusting lol
sjw: pls stop calling people disgusting because they lov-

SJW is an acronym for "social justice warrior". SJWs are internet content creators whose content often revolves around issues in our society, sadly, these internet content creators are doing it for clout instead of awareness/acceptance. SJWs will post about the difficulties that minorities face every day, but will shout slurs at minorities when not faced by a camera. You can easily spot an SJW if they are a white person with a ukelele or a self-proclaimed "dancer" that posts almost every hour. when Another term for SJW is "performative activist".

Person 1: Fucking SJW

an acronym for social justice warrior

sjws often make ocs and character designs that are more diverse (such as being transgender, fat, gay, a poc, etc)

there's nothing wrong with them unless they fetishize these things.
SJWs don't deserve the hate they get.
