Because SJWs are Whorfians, this book may be a must-read for understanding them

A Dozen Words for Misunderstood: Language and Thoughts - Pacific Standard: The Science of Society: "...those with just enough knowledge to be dangerous ... think they flatter a linguist when they say how important linguistics is, “because what we think depends on the words we use to think it.”"

The writer mentions three of my favorite writers, George Orwell, John Crowley, and Anthony Burgess, and doesn't mention Delany's Babel-17, but then, it's not about science fiction inspired by Whorfianism.
