She says, "In almost every activist is someone who has had issues or scares in the places they speak against the most." And I think sometimes that's true. Those experiences can skew people's views. There are calculated risks in life, we all take them. It's about reducing them as much as we can. When someone has had a traumatizing experience it may change the level of what they consider an acceptable risk. But that doesn't mean the rest of world will share that view. So sometimes people come across as completely paranoid and unreasonable because they have a different perspective.
On the other hand, some activists really do seem to have a superiority complex. I firmly believe using scare tactics and cramming information down people's throats drives more away from a cause than to it.
