i think ‘youdontneedfeminism’ employs reducto absurdum to most of the posts he/she reblogs.
Example: Note about not having to carry a weapon in public to feel safe, accompanied by a rather large knife. The response complains about the size of the knife.
Honestly I agree, it’s an unwieldy thing, BUT THAT’S NOT THE POINT. The point is she has to carry any sort of weapon to be safe. Choosing to ignore the message of the post is not a good argument technique.
That is like taking the words of a metaphor and complaining how it doesn’t apply to the message the metaphor is sending.
