Sit back and relax, content that you have now “owned the SJWs” by leaving social media.

Realize that fictional characters have no set identity and that you had previously placed more worth on a concept than on an actual living person’s identity.
Never say “SJW” again.
Watch Luther and be all, “Damn. He’d make a great James Bond!”
Get angry about something that matters, like that restaurants charge $15 for a fucking avocado spread on warmed bread.
