Anti-woke professors released an infographic on Wednesday that went viral on social media that aims to help policy makers and the population at large understand far-left social justice language.

The infographic was created by Dr. Bruce Gilley, Professor of Political Science at Portland State University; Dr. Peter Boghossian, Professor of philosophy at Portland State University; and Dr. James Lindsay, PhD in mathematics.

The graphic is centered around 12 of the most common terms used by leftists and breaks down the meaning of each term and how that term is manifested in reality.

The infographic states:
