SJW stands for "Social Justice Warrior," which refers to a person who is very passionate about social justice issues. It is often used online to make fun of outspoken people that are socially progressive.
While social justice activism has been prevalent for centuries, the "SJW" acronym didn't gain prominent usage until the 2010s. It became popular on social sites online, like Twitter and Facebook, to criticize people who really care about social issues like civil rights and feminism.
The acronym is mainly used by socially conservative people to ridicule a progressive person's "outspokenness" about a social issue. It is also used to imply that the person wants attention or validation more than being led by actual convictions of social injustices.
