Usage notes[edit]

The “white leftists” depicted by this word are stereotypically well-educated but naive and hypocritical social justice warriors, who advocate for humanitarianism, immigration, religion tolerance, LGBT and the environment, but are detached from the reality of the world in that they are blatantly ignorant of the perceivably trivial nature or the detrimental consequences of their advocacies.
