I am proud to have opposed those who describe all who oppose them as "Tender Flowers" and "Special Snowflakes".

I've noticed that the word "birthright" only appears in arguments I take to be terrible. Has anyone else noticed this, or can you think of other examples which aren't simply signs of positions you oppose, but which almost universally signal sloppy thinking?

Anytime I see someone abbreviate ad hominem as "ad hom", they're (1) using the term incorrectly and (2) wrong about everything else, as well.

Specious arguments are not proof of trollish intent.

Yes, the word "denier" immediately loses any argument for the person accused of being one.

"Hater." The minute that appears, I know I don't need to consider anything you're saying.

Any time I hear the words "Founding Fathers" I shut down. People invoke them to justify pretty much any viewpoint.

Whenever I call anyone a moron it's a sign they are a moron and capable of only terrible arguments. They may be haters or call me a denier but such ad hom attacks mean nothing since they come from those adorb little Libtards.

"Natural." It feels so right and yet means so little.

Capitalisation of the word truth seems to come along with "Truth" meaning "my opinion".

I have a hard time taking anyone seriously when they use the term "cisgendered."

Not to mention that calling people morons is your birthright, guaranteed to you by the Founding Fathers. That is the Truth!

I think a lot of the x-shaming constructions lead to lazy argumentation. It's a subjective accusation that spatters mud with no requirement for evidence. It's shame-shaming, is what it is!
