Do most Men's Rights activists support The Red Pill? (self.MensRights)

I ask this because as someone that believes men should have the right to not have to pay child support, and we really need to take a look at why male suicide rates are so much higher than female suicide rates. I feel a connection to Men's Rights, even though I personally consider myself a humanist, and agree with feminism on some points as well.
However, I was browsing The Red Pill and I was highly disturbed at the outlook of the users there. Suggesting that women have the brains of children, and that there is no such thing as marital rape, and that cheating is OK if a man does it, and the homophobia was shocking. I also feel that the whole Alpha and Beta thing that they portray men as is exactly why the Male Suicide rate is so high. We are expected to be rocks. We are expected to be soulless. We are expected to have no emotions. As someone that suffered bullying growing up, and suffered a lack of confidence and even attempted suicide at the age of 15 because of it, I feel it was mainly because of the horrible gender roles that say that men have to be "Alpha". We don't encourages boys-(or girls) to be themselves. We tell them what they HAVE to be or should be. We don't let our children be their own person.
I ask this question because I feel that The Red Pill actually directly goes against EVERYTHING that Men's Rights stands for, and is an extremely damaging platform that if in a Twilight Zone-esque world where we all started following Red Pill principles, it would not only raise the female suicide rate, but also raise the male suicide rate.
Just curious to see what MRA's here have to say on TRP.
