Nope!
Brain studies find that concern for justice and equality is linked to logic, not emotion.
By Lisa Wade, PhD
A new study finds that people with high “justice sensitivity” are using logic, not emotions.  Subjects were put in a fMRI machine, one that measures ongoing brain activity and shown videos of people acting kindly or cruelly toward a homeless person.
Some respondents reacted more strongly than others — hence the high versus low justice sensitivity — and an analysis of the high sensitivity individuals’ brain activity showed that they were processing the images in the parts of the brain where logic and rationality live.   “Individuals who are sensitive to justice and fairness do not seem to be emotionally driven,” explained one of the scientists, “Rather, they are cognitively driven.”
Activists aren’t angry, they reasonably object to unjust circumstances that they understand all too well.

Stop referring to them as “Men’s Rights Activists.”

This legitimizes them by framing their bigotry in the language of progress.

Start referring to them as organized misogynists, rape apologists and proponents of violence against women.

Do not concede a single inch of ideological ground to them.

Do not let them control the discourse.

Allow them no platform.

Allow them no reprieve.

Destroy them completely.
