I did not say an ad hominem is the same as a straw person.
I did say name calling is inappropriate in a logical discussion.
Swooning couch feminists was part of your discussion and is an insult.
While I have effectively used the term “boardroom democrats” to refer to a class of democrats with a lot of money who don’t see the anguish of the impoverished people, it is hardly an insult in our culture to associate a person with a boardroom.
It is an insult to call someone a “swooning couch” anything, if you are discussing their ability to handle rational arguments.
It is similar to the vocabulary some people use [“beta”, “cuck”, “snowflake”, “virtue signalling”, “libtard”] which is part of their argument [implicitly: only an X would say Y] and is at the same time not part of rational discourse at all.
When you enter a debate or a discourse, everything you say is part of your argument.
Are we not on the same page with this?
