Social Justice Warriors are Social Justice Activists turned into hate fueled extremists due to adopting Critical Race Theory / Progressive Stack (CRT/PS) concepts of Political Correctness + Victim Mentality deeply into their worldview / ideology. These types tend to obsess over CRT/PS. Their notions of reality tend to be very warped due to CRT/PS, such as how they think that if they're on the side of CRT/PS that they are therefore incapable of being a racist / sexist / etc bigots. They tend to be offended by / defend any and all sorts of criticisms of PC / SJW / BLM and such related major talking points, even when mass murder is involved. They tend to "troll" threads (derail them, ad hominem attack their opponents, etc). Not all SJW's are proper "Special Snowflakes" I doubt, but this new "Special Snowflake Generation" we're seeing unfold has them erupting out into the social scene en masse, as they often tend to identify with the "Oppression Scale" type concepts that CRT/PS is all about. Instead of debate policy issues, they tend to try to keep everything centered on Identity Politics, which is interesting as most of them are white people driven by White Guilt. In this way they tend to be walking cliches of "misery loves company", as projecting their guilt and bigotry and self-loathing onto others is like their daily bread & butter.

It's just another pejorative that immature people use to attempt to belittle people they disagree with. Along with "Sheeple" "Libtard" and "Conservitard". As far as I can tell "SJW" has been used to label anyone who's stuck up for a group that the labelling party doesn't like or agree with.
I usually ignore it, the kinds of people that use demeaning terms like that in discussion aren't worth the energy to argue because they're the kinds of people that argue like a pigeon plays chess, strutting around like they're winning when in fact they're just #ting on the board.

if you go out of your way looking for reasons others should be offended, you are a SJW. You can't hide it, you can't deny it, you must embrace it. Yes, I realize you will be looked at with disdain and disgust, but it's the card you were dealt, so play on playa.
