What ideology does SJW and this brand of feminism fall under, anyway? It's not really mainstream liberal, it's not really progressive. It's pretty much an internet and college campus only movement, with little portions creeping into the mainstream.
The ideology of self-righteous attention-whoring.
There are probably a lot of reasons this dynamic is more prevalent on college campuses than elsewhere, but I'm pretty sure one of them is the natural tendency of college students to be deeply self-centered, self-righteous, and lacking in perspective. You take the novelty of finally feeling and sometimes being treated like an intellectual and physical adult, the sense of empowerment and purported maturity that comes (for many students at least) of moving out of your parents' house, creating your own social network, etc., the implied validation of your intelligence and worth that comes with being admitted to college generally or your specific college of choice, and the narrow-mindedness that comes from having little or no experience with having to make you way independently in a world filled with people of different experiences and mindsets - which is coupled with the sense of security of having lived your whole life in an environment where your basic needs will be provided for even if you act like a stupid ass most of the time. Heady stuff.
