    Answer by Gal51 at 3:47 PM on Nov. 14, 2010

  • Agreed.

    Things that come to my mind are:
    Smoking while pregnant(it's ok because of stress seems to be going around an awful lot)
    spoiling children
    kids dressing sexy
    lack of accountabliity

    Oh, yes!  Musicmom has good answers.  And I'm thinking of more controversial ones, such as homosexual activity and abortion (moms cheerfully tweeting their abortion = http://www.salon.com/life/broadsheet/2010/11/04/ihadanabortion).  These fallacies are fashions.

  • agree to a point...sometimes something that one person views as just "fashionable fallacy" is actually neither, but a fact of life.

  • Agree! I love G.K. Chesterton. He lived in an era when people could talk about things with people holding opposing viewpoints.
