Social Justice is an ideology that wants to use the law to enforce equality of outcomes for all rather than the attainable equal treatment before the law.
You can never use the law to enforce perfectly equal outcomes for one and all, and if you think about it, the attempt *is* a communist ideology where are all are equally provided for by a centralized government control entity that equally distributes everything to everyone and decides what it appropriate for anyone to have and how much at any one time.
Any law that tries to create an equal outcome always ends up disadvantaging some and advantaging others more than intended, creating new victims and new groups who must be hobbled by new laws in the future. It's a never-ending cycle and fool's errand.
Instead, we all need simple, clear laws that benefit all no matter their perceived status in life and those laws need to apply the same. If does mean sometimes the rich man is the victim, not the poor man, but that's the way equal treatment works out. It's not about who seems "more deserving" only what the law says.

The only way I see the SJW movement ending is with all straight cis white males, and their sympathisers, in concentration camps.

oh sweet mother of FSM....I was wondering how long it would take for the "godless Commies" line to hit. Personally, I understand these kids, probably far better than one my age should. I also find the term "SJW" to be rather pejorative and demeaning, much like "snowflake", "cracker" or the dreaded n word. Like those, it is meant to divide, demean and belittle. Rather than flinging condescension and smugness, wouldn't it be a better use of energy to actually a.) talk, and b.) look past the histrionic nonsense on both sides and work to improve things? Or are we just content to sit back and laugh?
