Oh Tim you're such a conservative!

That was my way of insulting you even though you're not really offended.  But using your logic, it really was an insult because in my mind conservative is a bad thing.   :D

And that would be your problem.

Or in the case of SJW's, Argus's problem.

Hence, the point of my thread!

I agree, but saying it is just conservative who use labels is nonsense.

So basically it is a pejorative, and too bad I never grew out of grade 4.

Insults are in the hands of the thrower. Just look at how Argus and his ilk (is that you) throw SJW around.

SJW is used as a pejorative because that person generally wants to impose their ideology or their own ideas of what politically correct social justice is their rules no room for other ideas.  They believe in their own unwarranted sense of  moral superiority.

To me a SJW is a ....

This was pretty funny and pretty accurate, imo.  Clarification;  certain people follow those steps, with terms changed depending on topic and whatever ideology.

But what is it called.when a non-SJW such as Argus does it?

And, regardless of who is doing it to whom, what purpose does it serve?

Groups self identify as Evangelical so by itself it is not a pejorative.
Neocon also is used in the US for Democrats that crossed the floor (literally and/or philosophically) due to their difference in opinion with the party on foreign policy issues.

SJW is 100% pure pejorative.

I suggest it's used as a pejorative because the concept ruffles the feathers of right wingers who are comfortable in the status quo and don't want the hassle of dealing with human rights and such.

It didn't always used to be pejorative.  It used to have positive connotations but just like the labels 'progressive' and 'feminist', people like Argus started using it as an insult and it evolved to something bad.

There is nothing wrong with issues of social justice and those trying to belittle those values are the ones succeeding by devaluing the term.

That's why I refuse to be insulted by it.   

I'm also a proud feminist and progressive.

They succeeded in making 'feminist' such a bad thing that we have a whole new generation of young women too embarrassed to call themselves feminist.

I don't want to see them succeed into making 'social justice' a negative issue to shy away from.
