Social Justice Warriors
Are you upset all the time? Do minor things that other people do drive you up the wall? Do you spend all day muttering about unintended petty slights? Do you self-diagnose your own psychiatric disorders?
Are you convinced that you’re being oppressed by all the people around you?
You’re not just a paranoid schizophrenic. You might also be a Social Justice Warrior.
What the Jacobins and Bolsheviks were to earlier eras, the Social Justice Warrior is to the millennial generation. Just don’t expect an SJW to mount the barricades or storm anything physical. If there were a button on their keyboards that would let them guillotine or gulag their enemies, they would use it.
Since there isn’t, they have to generate hashtagged social media whine mobs instead.
