  • "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.
