“I’m gonna be a Social Justice Warrior for Halloween” (joke)

A Halloween joke was posted on Twitter by Adam Hunter on October 27, 2016:

“I’m gonna be a Social Justice Warrior for Halloween. When people ask me ‘What are you?’ I’m gonna reply ‘Offended.’”

The joke is based on the perception that Social Justice Warriors (SJWs) are easily offended.


Wikipedia: Social justice warrior
“Social justice warrior” (commonly abbreviated SJW) is a pejorative term for an individual promoting socially progressive views, including feminism, civil rights, multiculturalism, and identity politics. The accusation of being an SJW carries implications of pursuing personal validation rather than any deep-seated conviction, and being engaged in disingenuous social justice arguments or activism to raise personal reputation, also known as virtue signalling.
