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.

I admit, I’m pretty damn elusive and that’s not a reliable friend quality but I promise it’s only because I’m working on my relationship with myself and we need some time alone. Shoutout to patience and understanding.

More than halfway through the year and here are some important photos of me. I’ve been really feeling self conscious lately and I haven’t been thinking or saying kind things about my body and the way I move with this body through the world. I have to work harder and afford myself the gentleness and kindness I share with others.

"I will stay gentle
no matter what I endure,
I am so much more."
