Strive for Gender Neutral Bathrooms The recent hot debate in our society focuses on the new controversial policy for public bathrooms to be identified as gender neutral. People who identify as a gender other than their biological sex are allowed to use the bathroom based on how they identify themselves. Elizabeth Vliet, is a current physician, has acquired specialized training from Johns Hopkins Sexual Medicine Consultation team, and provides her stance about the gender neutral bathroom policy will promote the increase of danger, especially for women. Vliet has treated numerous patients over the years regarding sex and gender issues. Vliet has identified some similar characteristics among the patients she treated over the years.

Her errors in reason, include the use of logical fallacies identified throughout her argument. One of the logical fallacies that is identified in her argument is the question-begging epithets, which is the substitution of evidence through the overuse of emotional language. An example of this occurs when Vliet (2016) states, “Consequence of such absurd ideas are predictable” and “Bathroom equality or “gender neutral” locker rooms is just the latest absurdity in the move by “progressives” to “progress” the United States right out of common sense and public safety” (para. 2 &3). Vliet uses vocabulary such as “absurd/ity”, “predictable”, “consequence”, and the phrase “right out of” to evoke emotion out of people rather than using evidence to justify her claims. Another fallacy that is identufied in Vliet’s argument is appeal to fear, which is to create fear instead of using evidence. An example is when Vliet (2016)

The newspaper editorial “Someone has to stand up for the gifted students” Heather Mallick’s October 2017 article for the Toronto Star, takes a stance on the topic on gifted programs for students. The author seeks to convince readers that gifted programs should be implemented in schools. Based on ideas and key writing concepts from the reading “Mind Wide Open” by Jean Prinsen, it is clear that Mallick words the article in a way that is easy for the average person to understand. However, it ultimately lacks sufficient evidence, and uses threatening condescending language to make up for her lack of sufficient evidence.
Bonnie Docherty does not support the idea of using robot for warfares due to moral issues. She states :”It would undermine human dignity to be killed by a machine that can’t understand the value of human life.”. She also convokes the ban on the use of robots in war “before humanity crosses what she calls a moral threshold.”. She emphasizes how these machines will completely change the way of war like what gunpowder and nuclear have done. Thus, she worries about what these machines are capable of doing and who will take the responsible for war

Aleyna McKenzie has always dreamed of making it big as an actress. Lately, it seems like her goal has become unreachable. Her auditions haven’t gone well, money is running dry, and her car is on the brink of breaking down. When she is cast as a stand-in on the network tv show Devastation, she’s fed up with the film set guys hitting on her. Then Carson Peters, a well-known player in the world of Hollywood hotties and the male lead of the show, hits on her, too.
Some women responded in opposition; they believed that it was a time of suffrage and social change. Elizabeth Cady Stanton proclaimed that “NOW’s THE HOUR- Not the negro’s hour” alone, but everybody’s hour” as a response to Douglass’s assertion in the precedence of black suffrage. Her perspective as a white woman does not allow for empathy for the black race. Although she has championed for their cause, she cannot be as passionate nor can it be as relevant to her as Frederick Douglass. Stanton’s anger at the 15th amendment is understandable, considering the support she had for the abolition movement.
Barbara Grutter, a white woman applied to the Law School in 1996. She received a 161 LSAT score and obtained an undergraduate GPA of 3.8. Grutter was not admitted at first but placed on a waiting list but ultimately rejected. In 1997, Grutter, similar to Bakke, filed a suit against the Regents of the University of Michigan claiming the she was discriminated against based on her race which violated her Fourteenth Amendment, more specifically the Equal Protection Clause, and Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Grutter’s main arguments against the Law School included the fact that she was rejected because the usage of race was a “predominant” factor, allowing racial minority groups “a significantly greater chance of admission than students
Martha Bussbaum argues that prostitution should be decriminalized for we everyone exchanges their body for money. Additionally, legalization of prostitution will help women who have few options. Bussbaum does not centralize her argument on morality but legality. Several professions and people have been stigmatized, stereotyped, or based off class. Opera singers, actors, and dancers have been regarded as public prostitution for illogical, emotional, and biased perceptions.
Deborah Olar, my oldest sister, was pregnant with a girl and diagnosed with mild preeclampsia. Preeclampsia is when the mother’s blood pressure increases and when there’s an increase of protein in the urine. Also, where your kidneys start to fail slowly. Also, where as she did, gain 5 pounds in only water every week.
When Alice Paul tells Senator Leighton that she “perpetuates the lie everyday at breakfast,” she is referring to the lie that most women felt fulfilled within their role in society and how most women lacked independence, ultimately giving up meeting their husbands and societies standards of marriage. In the early 1900’s, women did not receive the right to vote, nor were they allowed to express their opinions vocally due to the fact that they would fear judgment from society and their husbands. Emily Leighton was one among many women at that time, who suffered voicing her opinion, especially since her husband was a Democratic Senator who shared completely different views. Because of this, Emily secretly wrote in her diary and had to practice
In chapter seven, Seibert offers a suggestion to read the Joshua 6-11 account from the perspective of the Canaanites. This argument became a view changer for me and I find it helpful for reading scripture through a suffering lens, in spite of always reading from the viewpoint of the conquers. As an African American, who always had the privilege of reading African American history from the perspective of the slave, Seibert in this section suggest that all should read virtuous violence from the perspective of the suffering. It is important that when viewing scriptures of violence, one must first remember that those included are human. I find this argument by Seibert extremely helpful and transformative, because it will forever remind me that
Nobility belongs to those who prove themselves chivalrous by providing evidence of what society deemed Christian and honorable behavior. The new definition of what nobility encompassed set a standard for proper conduct. Anita Obermeier in her discussion of auctorial self-criticism states that by the end of the Middle Ages a new pattern emerges in the apology tradition. She states:
Gretchen Weirob’s argument is based on the view that physical identification is more important towards personal identity rather than psychological features. For example, Weirob believes that a person can identify with their body because they can see their body and it’s certain capacity; the body is very rational. Which is why she would not want her brain to be put into someone else’s body. She believes the body is the unique differentiation to an individual’s identification. Her argument becomes clear when she discusses the idea that someone can be manipulated, put under hypnosis or delusional to think that a different body from Weirob’s is Gretchen Weirob.
Undeniably, this organization made her rebuttal easy to follow. More than that, though, it showed that she could take apart every single one of Volpi’s arguments; not a single point could withstand her rebuttal. For example, take some of Volpi’s main points: tradition, women’s beauty, and educated women not wishing to marry. In the same order, Savini de’ Rossi proves that these points are false, arguing against tradition, women’s reliance on beauty, and educated women choosing to remain virgins. By repeating the main ideas of the original debate in order, she recalls the reader to Volpi’s points and then tears them down, making his argument even weaker.
