Social Justice Creates Mediocrity

Here's a perfect example of social justice warriors sabotaging society.

3 Ways Cancer Scientist Tim Hunt’s Social Media Mob Went Too Far
Sir Richard Timothy Hunt is a British biochemist who won a Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for discovering protein molecules that control the division of cells. He was elected a fellow of the Royal Society in 1991, was awarded the Royal Medal for his work on cell cycle control and was knighted by the Queen. He’s worked on cancer research for decades.
Last week, he was speaking at the 2015 World Conference of Science Journalists at a lunch for female journalists and scientists. He said something he claims was meant as a joke, but that went over like a lead balloon:
“Let me tell you about my trouble with girls … three things happen when they are in the lab … You fall in love with them, they fall in love with you and when you criticize them, they cry.”
We’ll skip to the aftermath. Hunt was forced out of his position at University College London as well as from the Royal Society’s Biological Sciences Awards Committee and forced to step down from the European Research Center.~snip~
What we have here are a bunch of self righteous assholes running off one of the best and brightest simply because they were "offended".
How many times will something like this happen?
There's a whole group of "social justice warriors" out there hanging on every word uttered hoping for something to be offended about so they can puff themselves up because they have so much "power".
So now here's a guy who is the top in his field researching CANCER who has been driven from his work.

Boy that'll teach us, won't it?
