  1. I, personally, think this article can be unleashed, however I'm willing to cede ground for this article to be improved. When I first read it, I thought "I must be in Funspace," but I turned out to be wrong. The opening of the article does a terrible job of defining what a "social justice warrior" is or where it comes from. Furthermore, it neglects when/where the term would be encountered. The "types" section doesn't actually list types of SJWs but, instead, lists the types of people who are critical of them. The "Response" and "Websites infested by SJWs" are complete garbage and worthy of the Funspace, certainly not the mainspace. Better to start from scratch or go with the original redirect, for the reasons I stated. John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt (talk) 08:46, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
    Are you implying that being complete garbage and being worthy of Funspace are somehow synonymous? o_O (talk) 09:04, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
    No, but I'm saying that the items in question are not worthy of being in a mainspace article. If the article were in Funspace, then I suppose they'd be par for the course there. But in terms of mainspace-level quality, those two sections are garbage. John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt (talk) 09:09, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
  2. It is entirely unclear this is an improvement on no article at all - David Gerard (talk) 14:02, 22 June 2015 (UTC)


  1. The term is used often enough that there probably should be an article on it. The current content may well be flawed, but is that not an argument for fixing the article up as opposed to deleting it? (((Zack Martin))) 11:11, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
  2. Needs a lot of work and more snark. Queexchthonic murmurings 13:17, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
  3. Let's fix, not delete Doxys Midnight Runner (talk) 13:32, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
  4. Keep. Improve. --Castaigne (talk) 13:51, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
  5. Needs a tonne of work, but is linked to enough to show that it is germane. Whatever happened to these people? Many of them came in full of piss and vinegar and have not edited in many months. They said they were going to make the concept a focus of ours, it would seem that this article should be germane to their interests? — Unsigned, by: AgingHippie / talk / contribs 14:12, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
  6. Move the stuff about SJWs from Social Justice to the SJW article, but keep it. This term is notable for being used and abused.--Arisboch (talk) 14:17, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
  7. Reading this page left me feeling the need to do something that didn't involve the internet. I'd go out for a walk but it's gone midnight and I'd have to get dressed again. Anyway, I think we need it. Spud (talk) 16:23, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
  8. If only for the 'Origins' section, which is actually interesting and informative. - Smerdis of Tlön, LOAD "*", 8, 1. 16:44, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
  9. Keepity keep. (talk) 19:22, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
  10. RationalWiki should have an article about SJWs (and why they are terrible, irrational, cult-like people that make the world a worse place for everyone). Hmmph (talk) 03:41, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
