Couple things come to mind.

First is to point out that I tune out as soon as someone starts complaining about "SJWs" as if fighting for social justice is a bad thing or that social justice isn't something to fight for.  If you want to complain about people who are hypersensitive, or are looking for a reason to be offended, go right ahead, I'll probably even agree with you.  But if you want to do it by demonizing the idea of social justice, I am not interested in listening any further.

Second is that I have seen the accusation of rape either weaponized or used as a way to avoid punishment.  Yes, every accusation needs to be investigated seriously, as it's a serious accusation.  But I've also seen the letters from girls who've falsely accused people of rape so they could get out of a foster or treatment placement, trying to apologize for completely ruining an innocent man's life.  Alternately, there are the ones who reliably report being raped as soon as they've been arrested and taken to juvy, because they know it gums up the whole intake process, gets our office involved, and delays lockup for several hours.

Which leads me to the following position: an accusation is exactly that and requires proper investigation.  No one's word, not mine or anyone else's, gets to be taken as fact without further question.

I would support actual justice, but nobody would like it.  That is why we only get the fake hypocritical versions.  And yes, facts are required in a court of law, but not in the court of public opinion.

Well said.  "SJW" sould not be an insuklt, though some people make them out to be.

And charges of any sexual nature need to be taken seriously.

Most people here are sexually liberal.  Not puritanical.  But SJWs are very puritanical.  They would make good Jesuits.

You both misunderstand AND miscategorize "SJW".

In what way does the question relate to your use of "Social Justice Warrior" as an insult?

I use many things as insults.  Say ... New Englander .. or Yankee.  Like Tweedle-Dum, An insult means exactly what I mean, no more, no less.

So, the purpose of your post was to insult other participants here?  I'm a New England Yankee by birth and heritage.

Talk to the hand.  You are a genocidal maniac (vs Southern folk) ... at least if you had a time machine.  If I had a time machine, all the socialists would be dead, bang!  We are just alike.
