This graphic is fabulous. It represents a tiny crash course in rhetoric. Learn these things. Put them on your wall. Whisper them into the breeze. These are THINGS TO KNOW.
Bookmark this shit and the next time someone begins gobbling nonsense at you on a social network, instead of engaging, point them to this handy chart. Also useful: Thought Catalog’s “How To Have A Rational Conversation" flowchart.
How has no one linked the source on this? These are by no means the only fallacies they have graphics for, Also they sell posters, and you can link to each fallacy individually so as to actually use them to explain to someone the logical flaw in their argument.

Choi Xoo Ang’s Disturbing Sculptures
Choi Xoo Ang, the Seoul born artist and dark master of the imagination, has created sculptures at once hyperrealistic and completely nightmarish, making you feel as if your real life has bled into an inescapable, bad dream.
Twisted tongues, stitched backs and floating heads appear throughout Choi’s polymer clay figures, which display remarkable realism despite their fabulous content. Many of the pieces give metaphorical shape to real issues in modern day Korea, including human rights and abuse.
I love this. It’s such a great comedic way to get a serious and useful message across. I love it. Fight eating disorders.
FUCKING LOVE THIS OMG
this is one of my favorite things ever. this is the right way to use comedy in relation to an eating disorder and probably the ONLY way to do it appropriately. bravo to the joy project.
This is utterly disgusting an the fact that people think it’s actually positive makes me want to blow up the planet.
STOP SEXUALIZING EATING DISORDERS. STOP SEXUALIZING THE MANY WOMEN AND UNDERAGE GIRLS WHO HAVE EATING DISORDERS. STOP SEXUALIZING WOMEN’S MENTAL HEALTH PROBLEMS.
How about instead of telling these girls “Don’t get an eating disorder, it’s not sexy”, which by the way is no better than saying “Don’t get fat, it’s not sexy”, how about you tell them “There is nothing inherently attractive about any body-type, and you don’t owe it to anyone to be sexy anyways. You deserve to be loved regardless of what you look like.” and give them support for recovering from their eating disorder? No, you decided not to do that. You decided to just push the idea that women exist for the purpose of being physically attractive and that we shouldn’t dare do anything to ruin an ounce of our sex appeal.
This is rape culture, this is trivializing mental illnesses, this is misogyny, this is repulsive, and most of all, it’s not fucking funny.
un tardo pomeriggio autunnale sul Romito - Livorno
PS: un caro saluto agli amici della Sardegna
"A study on masculinity and aggression from the University of South Florida found that innocuous – yet feminine – tasks could produce profound anxiety in men. As part of the study, a group of men were asked to perform a stereotypically feminine act – braiding hair in this case - while a control group braided rope. Following the act, the men were given the option to either solve a puzzle or punch a heavy bag. Not surprisingly, the men who performed the task that threatened their masculinity were far more likely to punch the bag; again, violence serving as a way to reestablish their masculine identity. A follow-up had both groups punch the bag after braiding either hair or rope; the men who braided the hair punched the bag much harder. A third experiment, all the participants braided hair, but were split into two groups: those who got to punch the bag afterwards and those who didn’t. The men who were prevented from punching the bag started to show acute signs of anxiety and distress from not being able to reconfirm their masculinity."
