I'm confused. Are you trying to claim that "SJW" is no longer used in a discriminatory way, or should no longer be used in a discriminatory way? Because it's obvious that SJW is used unkindly. Are you claiming that it shouldn't be used unkindly, or it shouldn't have a negative connotation?

You should really clarify your argument.

Next time instead of making your opening statement a question that you could of or asked me privately you should you know POST A COMMENT IN THE COMMENT OR MESSAGE ME PRIVATELY! (Do not rebut the previous statement or elaborate on your reasoning)

Opening statements: SJWs mean it when they refer to themselves as SJWs

If a former-negative is now a current-positive due to rebranding and mocking of the opposing side it is no longer a negative therefore the term pejorative is useless

You said "round one acceptance only". I've accepted. I think I've passed that test. Now, since it is round 2, i'll be posting my opening statement.

Opening Statement: If a word is used in a negative way, it is a pejorative. SJW is used in a negative way, and, therefore, it is a pejorative.

(Disclaimer: I personally believe SJW should not be used as a slur, but I'm happy to debate the opposite of my opinion).
