I'm probably one of the only people that really qualifies. I actually do work in schools that is most accurately described as promoting social justice and I work for a company that explicitly promotes social justice. I also think most people on this forum would support the work I do if they actually saw it.

The attack on SJWs is understandable as at their worst they're certainly insufferable and self-defeating to the causes they actually promote, but it's also very similar to people in the 70's fixating on hippies in that it serves to distract and obscure from very real problems in the United States and elsewhere. For example, Cigna, a large health insurance company, recently did a study that concluded that loneliness and it's psychological and physical consequences are a very real issue for the health of Americans. But critical speech around the notions of love, community, and bonding in America is easily dismissed as "SJW bullshit" when they could actually have a huge impact on our quality of life. Look critically at our numbers regarding suicide, mental health, and other metrics compared to other developed countries--they're not good.

Another example can be found in healthcare. I used to work for our state school for the blind, and we had a lot of rural kids, because they often can't be served by their local governments. They require state and federal funds to be served, and may not have a hospital in their local area unless federal funding is providing one. I consider this an issue of social justice, but again, that can be dismissed because of what people think of the concept.

And I'm very far from rich BTW, and the people that work with me aren't either. We see areas where our communities are lacking and have decided to do this work. I generally don't sleep badly at night having advocated for the learning, the weak, and the underserved, but to each their own.

Two out of four of the current mods have engaged in some degree of combat in the ongoing social justice war over the years. I won’t say which ones, though. Their posts speak for themselves.

I'm actually kind of over it. I feel like they already lost. They are just a total joke. Anyone who thinks like that is just a joke.

Working in higher education I am surrounded by SJWs, but I would not consider myself one.
