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.

Everyone has good intentions. The problem is when they lead to zealotry. Whether you steer to the left or the right if you go too far the final destination is the same; anyone who doesn't agree with me needs to be silenced.

Social Justice Warrior is a term too liberally (pun intended) applied but it certainly describes a portion of those on the left. In many ways they are scarier than right wing wackos because their moral justification is secular rather than religious.
