This came up on a Spider-man board, and I thought it would make a good discussion here.

What are people's thoughts on this term? I think it's become fashionable to write off any attempt towards political correctness with a SJW label. I think it's become dismissive and mocking, and personally I hate it.

I recognize that there are people who can go to far in their pursuit of political correctness, and those people are probably rightly deserving of mockery. But by and large, I think political correctness exists to show empathy for people who aren't like you, and I think that's a good thing.

At its worst, I think the SJW label is used to justify prejudices and racism. I would like this term to disappear entirely.

I absolutely agree with you. I think people only use the term derisively to excuse their own antisocial behaviour.
