This is kind of what I come up with whenever I see people complain about social justice bullies--I don't think that the social justice bullies are worse than the previous generation of bullies, I think that the language of social justice just kind of... underlines some of the hypocrisy. There have always been bullies and queen bees in fandom and they've always used whatever language is available to try and shore up their power base and attack anyone they see as a threat.'

So that kind of turns the question from "how do we keep people from misapplying social justice theory" to "how do we stop bullying," and unfortunately I don't have any thoughts on how to stop that, either. :/ But I think you've basically outlined the problem as it stands.
