It means that word choice reveals a lot about a person.

Still not sure what you mean. I try to refer to people as they refer to themselves. Try not writing in riddles.

I think the problem here is that some people use SJW as a pejorative and some use it as a point of pride...

"Social justice warrior" may be used as a point of pride, but "SJW" is a pejorative used by gamergaters and right-wing trolls. I'm disappointed to see it in use here.

We all sometimes need to learn to live with disappointment.

Regardless...it's not the topic at hand.

SJW doesn't imply "right wing" to me. It's a term that describes a certain self-aggrandizing, self-appointed moral guardianship and I thought it was aptly used in this thread.

In the US, a SJW is someone, usually a white person, who goes around getting offended on behalf of other people for things that do not apply to themselves, and they usually do it in an aggressively self-righteous way, as described in Vinsanity's anecdote. It has nothing at all whatsoever to do with video games and republicans/right-wing/conservatives, lol. Maybe in Australia it has a meaning which is "disappointing" in the same way that finding out someone in the US is a member of the NRA, but over here it means "obnoxious know-it-all twenty-something".

I don't think I've ever heard the term used over here, but thanks for playing. If you managed to miss gamergate and it's associated political fallout, good for you.
