Are you a Social Justice Warrior?
A few weeks ago I was talking to my ex-boss, an all-around prudent and intelligent woman, about Gone Girl, and the word "feminist" was dropped. She bristled.
"I don't like that word," she said.
"Do you think you should be paid the same as a man for equivalent work?" I asked.
"Do you think you should have the same social and human rights?"
"You're a feminist."
Also, who the fuck drops SJW - unironically - as an insult? It's got the word "justice" right in there. Whoever's decided they're againt what is, by definition, moral rightness is the villain in any given scenario.
