> it likely is motivated—at least in part—by desires to protect others from harm
That might be the motivation, but that doesn't help against conflicts at all. On the contrary you are not solving animosity that way. Some conflicts are inevitable and it will only lead to a more severe escalation if you enforce some form of fake harmony nobody really agrees with.
To be honest, we should listen more to the women that run counter the majority of their sex in my opinion.
> some scientific findings should be censored because they are too dangerous
For example? I think there is a problem that scientific findings are often read as a guideline, a field very susceptible to this is economics, but also some social sciences. You are also free to not subject yourself to offensive ideas, but please not in an environment that is in search for knowledge.
Freedom and equality collide at some point. A society can and should set a lower border in participation. But not valuing freedom of expression in an academic setting is juvenile.
