So the word never fits, anywhere, regardless of the ideology being expressed at the time?
Every time I've mentioned the word, I've explained in what manner it fits the context and how the philosophy has spread like stink to every major aspect of social interaction. Critical theory is heavily what it is, and it is heavily present in certain soft sciences such as sociology. Open any sociology textbook and you'll find out that 2 of the founders of the field were Marxists, with one being Marx himself, and the third being a Socialist. You think that hard-left viewpoint actually has no impact on the field and that it is clean of taint from Marxist philosophical influence?!
