I have to keep my media studies argumentation skills from atrophying away.

Reading the topic again, this was just a wordy way of making the Thermian Argument again.
Thermians? weren't those the guys who made that space web that caught Captain Kirk?

Those were Tholians. Thermians were the good-guy aliens in Galaxy Quest.

(I apoligize if the following comes across as mansplaining, I just wanted to explain what the Thermian Argument is.)

Thermians had no concept of fiction in the film and believed tv broadcasts to be historical arguments. The Thermian Argument on the other hand is trying to justify extra-fictional criticism through intra-fictional reasoning. Basically justifying, say, deflecting criticism of a chainmail bikini outfit as sexist by saying "But that's just how they dress in the fictional world."

sorry if I wasn't clear. I knew exactly what Tholians and Thermians are (Galaxy Quest is a classic up there with Godfather, Shawshank and Die Hard). TBH though, I have never heard of the "Thermian Argument" in any sort of critical sense. Is there something you studied or just something you came up with for the internet? (<-genuine curiosity)

The argument I've come across in media studies, the name is from Dan Olson's Youtube series Folding Ideas.

Thank you for the explanation. No need to pre-apologize.
