The internet has a word or acronym for everything these days.
This is the latest one.
I’d seen it popping up a little while ago and cause I’m not always exactly up to date with the latest trends and ‘cool words’ I had to google it.
Social Justice Warriors
If you’re like me, I’ll save you the google time.
A social justice warrior, or SJW, does not necessarily strongly believe all that they say, or even care about the groups they are fighting on behalf of.
They typically repeat points from whoever is the most popular blogger or commenter of the moment, hoping that they will “get SJ points” and become popular in return.
They are very sure to adopt stances that are “correct” in their social circle.
I’d also add known as keyboard warriors in a lot of instances.
Like the bloody SJW who thought I actually gave a hoot about her forced opinion of me on twitter last week.
The keyboard warrior responded to some online advertising I was running like this
Hey Daniel we don’t want your free advice about our flabby chunky saggy bodies
Now as you may know, I don’t always have tolerance for fools,
especially when they have no idea how to use a hashtag as they should be used
so my reply was a little blunt:
thanks for your opinion that I didn’t ask for. It’s not fat shaming you muppet.
It’s advertising to help people who want it.
You don’t want it? Ignore it instead of ignorant replies
Maybe I’m too harsh with people like this.
But when someone wants to give me a lecture on fat shaming I’ll think I’ll sleep in that day.
And as you’re no doubt aware, that’s the last thing I do here.
I write these each days to give you a bit of entertainment first up,
but also to offer you a solution if you feel what I’m talking about hits the mark with where you may be at now.
So that I don’t come across as another bloody personal trainer who’s obsessed with tuna and salad and more interested in themselves.
And cause you’re reading this I know that you’re also smart enough to realise that too.
But it also reminds me of something that you may experience when you are transitioning across to a new lifestyle
– eating better
– drinking a little less
– and finally starting to do something for you and lose those 5kg that have crept up on you.
It’s the same thing cause it takes a bit of cahunas to put yourself out there.
Open to the criticism of others.
Cause there’s always going to be some well meaning friend
or family member who wants to drag you down.
* To get you back to the old you.
* To help them feel better about themselves
* rather than be proud of you for doing something positive.
The main thing is you don’t give into them.
That’s what ‘they’ want.
Also, when I do something like this it is indented to do exactly what it did.
There’s no point in being vanilla.
I’d rather have people like this goose hate me cause I know those that are on the other end of the spectrum will be more drawn to what I’m saying.
