60. Appeal to nature is a logical fallacy, the natural state of being is not the one most conductive to
Edited on Wed May-25-11 06:03 PM by Kurska
human survival or human happiness. You don't have to be a tool of the patriarchy to point out obvious logical fallacies.

You say nature provides for more girls than boys, I point out nature also originally provided for 1/8th of all females to eventually die during childbirth. A person with a basic understanding of the human condition can grasp why neither of those "Natural" states are ideal.

Your ideas of why females are "Better" or more "trust worthy" is not a thought that spawns from the modern concept of gender equality. I'd prefer a world where people of all genders are judged only on their individual merits and their gender is nothing but an after thought that dwells only in the limited realm of human reproduction.
