  • "Social justice warrior" (commonly abbreviated SJW) is a pejorative term for an individual promoting socially progressive views, including feminism, civil rights, multiculturalism, and identity politics.

    To everything there is a season

    and a time for every purpose

    under Heaven

    What is my purpose now?

    I read a comment on social media

    making fun of SJW's

    that's Social Justice Warriors

    I had to look it up

    And I pondered what that meant...

    Does that mean because I stand up

    for the rights of children without a voice,

    or the right to worship God as you understand God to be,

    the right to your own sacred body,

    the right not to be racially profiled,

    or the right of us all to clean air and water

    that I am a phony, or a fake, or an entitled asshole?

    I amended my original post

    because on a late afternoon walk, this came to me

    and it needed to be said

    I will stand up for your first amendment right

    to minimize my commitment by labeling

    me a SJW

    Ok, sign me up.

    I will wear my new acronym with pride.

    I will stand, speak, write and protest for human rights

    and I won't pretend that any other response

    is ok.
