A concrete example of how social justice can be harmful: Falling grades and psychological problems

Brown student protesters complain homework is interfering with their activism.

The title itself sounds quite facepalmy, but the article itself reveals a darker aspect of the whole thing:
“There are people breaking down, dropping out of classes, and failing classes because of the activism work they are taking on,” an undergraduate student going by the pseudonym “David” told The Brown Daily Herald Thursday. “My grades dropped dramatically. My health completely changed. I lost weight. I’m on antidepressants and anti-anxiety pills right now. Counselors called me. I had deans calling me to make sure I was okay.”
This is something that wouldn't need to happen, and is caused solely because of the social justice brainwashing that these college kids are going through.

But maybe if it's for a good cause, it's something to fight for, even if it means falling grades and mental health problems? The thing is, it's not: These protests are completely nonsensical. They are protesting a non-existent phenomenon in universities. It's nothing more than a made-up "problem" invented by entitled privileged rich kids and their gender studies professors, using exaggerated and sometimes completely fabricated claims. They are fighting windmills.

And they are causing a lot of harm to everybody. To the university, to other students, to the surrounding society, and more importantly, to themselves, as that testimony reveals. Falling grades and failing classes at a university is a serious issue. Mental health problems are an even more serious issue. And both are caused by, essentially, a cult, and wouldn't need to happen.

Social justice is ruining these kids' lives. They could be studying for a productive career in science, but instead they are wasting their lives and health fighting windmills and chasing wild geese, and getting psychologically hurt in the process.

Modern progressive feminism and social justice is a dangerous cult.
