It's just "PC Brigade" but with a different name. People don't like being called out on their racism, sexism, etc., so they resort to calling people "Social Justice Warriors" whenever people confront them.

There are definitely ridiculous people on tumblr, but to be honest many of the more outrageous examples of SJWs are probably trolls. Either way, the backlash against them has resulted in a lot of stupid people thinking that bigotry is okay after all, and that the proper response to anyone who says to them "Whoa, that's kinda racist/sexist/homophobic/transphoboic/etc." is to go "LOL tumblr otherkin transfat"

And isn't that Riley person a huge racist? There's a screenshot floating around of an old Livejournal post of theirs, where they complain about black people ruining anime or some silly poo poo.

I still think the term "social justice warrior" has been run into the ground, though.

Has anyone ever found out who or what Riley really is? Not that I want to see anyone doxxed or anything like that, but surely someone knows whether or not Riley is really a black transwoman or whatever she's claiming she is. I do know that she used to post on Livejournal about how black people were ruining anime for her, going so far as to call them the n-word and all that poo poo.

poo poo, is Riley even around anymore? I don't use tumblr.

Edited to add:

I still think this backlash against tumblr/social justice whatevers is kind of silly and dumb. I'm not convinced that the vast majority of them weren't either trolls or just silly harmless kids.
