      I am being serious. This is not something that I see people discuss offline.

    It used to mean fighting for equality, rights, and against social inequalities in the world. Ex: Martin Luthor King would be a SJW.

    It has morphed as all things do (Ex: Swastika used to be a symbol of peace, # used to be number or pound sign not hashtag, etc...)...now it stands for people who jump on the "politically correct" bandwagon with little understanding of why...just because they want to appear like one of the social "good guys", fit in, etc...I could be wrong but I think its a term the Right also uses against liberals....of course liberals call the right Nazis and other things as well.

    I also think it has gained the reputation as very superficial...as people are ordered according to superficial surface traits. Ex: I watch Bill Maher and they constantly use the term White Men of power doing something bad. When the non-racist way to say it would be a Person in power who happens to be White and Male...would it not? And sure there are more White Males in power...but the real trouble seems to be in this world people in power of any race or sex that misuse it as power corrupts.


It's telling that you latch to Bill Maher's commentary as a basis for your argument that SJWs are superficial, when the people who SJWs fight for have been ordered according to superficial surface traits since the dawn of the US ... by people of power who happen to be white males.
