Life as a social justice warrior

Can you imagine living the life of a social justice warrior? imagine that your every breath is drawn in a state of anger and you are constantly offended by the most meaningless words or gestures.

Every single morning you wake up and you brace yourself for the battles that you think you must fight. Some of your biggest skirmishes are are against words. You fight hard to eliminate these words from everyday usage. Every moment of your day is spent in a state of readiness to do combat because at any moment some word could trigger you and send you dashing for a safe space where you do not have to hear the offensive expression.

Often times the words that offend are words that have been in use since the beginning of time. If there is no safe space to run to, then as a social justice warrior you feel the need to lash out at the perpetrator guilty of speaking the unapproved locution. What must it be like to roam college campuses in search of forbidden opinions, and trying to police the speech of others?

These are some of the most obnoxious self righteous people that you will ever come across in your life. They show up at private events with the express purpose of implementing the heckler’s veto, interupting others from even discussing opposing points of view.

SJWs are constantantly organizing protests and boycotts. One can only imagine how tedious it must be to live life denying basic truths like the fact that a man is a man, a woman is a woman and neither can be the other, then pretending that you are truly offended some do not share their views. To follow through on their denial, SJWs then go to extremes to prove that they really believe the lies that they tell themselves everyday.

Showing dedication to their cause, many social justice warriors willingly cut themselves off from their families who do not share their political views, and they have no problem ruining a good thanksgiving or Christmas meal with their politics. They will unfriend themselves on facebook from someone they have known since childhood because the friend expressed solidarity with Trump or his policies. They then wallow in their smugness with a feeling of superiority, convinced of their own virtue.

This bunch is always on the warpath and they are incapable of exercising the same tolerance that they demand of others. They are angry, hostile, petulant, offensive, aggressive, belligerent, insultive, and confrontational even as they castigate others for daring to have an opinion that is different from their own. Their lack of self awareness is unparalleled, and hey seem to think that their view of the world is the only outlook that matters. As far as they are concerned they have the right, through the use of intimidatory tactics to try and dissuade others from disagreeing with them. 

One can only imagine that this must be a life that is absent of any joy or fulfillment. 

Because almost everything offends the social justice warrior they never have time to savor any of the blessings in their lives because they are always preoccupied with the the next battle. How tiresome must that be? 

For those who don’t not live their lives preoccupied with looking for things to be offended about, the life of a social justice warrior is soul destroying, but the social justice warrior finds meaning in his misery. She is convinced that her cause is just, and perhaps it is that self assured attitude above all that makes her dangerous. 

Because they regard themselves as the final authority on what words mean, they can arbitrarily switch the meaning of them to mean whatever they want them to mean. When that happens they can then justify their behavior in response to these words. In this world of “words are whatever I deem them to be” anything goes. They tar and feather opponents for wrong doing and no proof is ever necessary. They then justify their despicable behavior by convincing themselves they are fighting evil. Feeling justified, they wage unrelenting efforts to end people’s careers, shame some, ostracize others, physically try to intimidate yet more, and even violently attack people whose only crime is that they said something offensive or hold the wrong political opinion.
