Oh Tumblr...

I was just scrolling through the feminism dashboard there today and I saw someone berate a twelve-year old girl of her use of logical fallacies (ad hominem and straw man to be precise). First off, you're having a casual conversation on a social networking site where not everyone is proficient in the art of argument. This isn't a collegiate debate class here. It's. Freakin'. Tumblr. Second, she even stated her age and everything and the person somehow expected her to know those things.

This is why a rarely go on those controversial sections or even that site in general. Everyone there is just so elitist and ostentatious.

/mini-rant over.
