In this episode we talk about some logical/argumentative fallacies and how they might pertain to the gender debate and identity politics in general.
The fallacies we cover are:
2. Proof by assertion / argument from repetition
3. Affirming the consequent (invalidly inferring the converse of a statement)
4. Magical thinking
5. Nirvana fallacy
6. Slippery slope
7. Red herring
