“Stereotypes Have Some Truth In Them.”

That statement is one of the more popular logical fallacies I see used as an excuse for ignorance and stupidity. These obvious gas-lighting comments are rampant on the internet but particularly in the blog-o-sphere, in the comment sections of Facebook and YouTube, and have exploded exponentially on in-game zone-chat.

The people who use them the most are Trump-supporting race-baiters cherry-picked from the modern-day sideshows on YouTube, TLC, and the grossly misnamed Discovery channel. Gays who pretend that they’re discriminated against tend to use these strawmen to shut down non-white people while simultaneously discriminating against straight people.

People who pretend to be teachers, doctors, attorneys, or civil servants do the most damage. That’s what merit-based employment gets us: especially in the deep south where ‘southern values’ are rammed down throats and up asses.

I prefer having intelligent, reasonable discussions with intellectually curious critical thinkers. They are generally best conducted face-to-face.

If you’re looking for a like-minded goose-stepper who will agree with everything you say then please move on. I’m not one.
