The fact that there is a term 'Social Justice Warrior' with clear negative connotations on the rise is in itself very telling of how the modern days witch hunt for discrimination and oppression achieves the results which are completely opposite of what this movement is claiming to stand for.

So much so that I predict that in five, maybe ten years the backlash to the SJW movement will become so powerful that actual racism and discrimination would become left unnoticed because people just wouldn't want to be labeled as 'sjw's', much like anti-immigration rhetorics became so unpopular with such a noticeable part of the establishment that people are ready to call fascists pretty much anyone who even mentions negative sides to massive immigration.

So all in all, this leads me to think that the SJW movement was somehow used to fight against actual human rights activists, just like the CIA used drug trade to crack down on the anti-war movement back in the 60's.

Thus I ask all those binged into this social justice funk - please stop. You're making things only worse.

The fact that there is a negative connotation towards Social Justice is more indicative of the slow societal shift in recognizing discrimination and oppression. The negative stigma against Social Justice is not out of lack of necessity of Social Justice, but rather out of the ignorance of the general public.
