Feminism and social justice often falls back to a fascinating conceptual piece of doublethink. They insist that proletariat / protected class(s) X, Y or Z should be endowed with special rights and special protections when defending double standard laws in use or proposing new ones. It is doublethink by definition, in that it is two contrary things held in one’s mind at one time being accepted as true, in spite of being mutually exclusive or even antithetical.
Now, although doublethink is a fairly commonly known or at least identifiable phenomena, there was no singular definition for the key aspect witnessed in Feminists and SJWs. “Feminism is about equality, which is why we support establishing double standard Q”. Forcing the onlooker to point and say “but that’s a double standard, not equality.” To which the out spoken onlooker will be subjected to a load of horse manure rationalizations to explain how supporting a double standard is equal.
It’s a non-stop, continual phenomena seen in and from Feminists, social justice warriors and what laws they support, defend or propose. With no ready made singular descriptor for this exact behavior I was forced to create one.
Thus, the birth of the “Ad Minus Aequius” logical fallacy. Described here and bellow.
Logical Fallacy: “Ad Minus Aequius”
English Translation: “Less is the Same”
The logical fallacy that less is equal.
Such is to say zero equals one.
Or that one group having less legal rights and protections, is equal due to rationalizations used to justify the proposal of new double standards or the continuation of those currently in use.
The most notable literary display of the “Ad Minus Aequius” logical fallacy is George Orwell’s novella “Animal Farm”.
Quote: “All animals are equal, some animals are more equal than others.”
As you can see from the link above, I have provided a tweet containing the meme of the logical fallacy: share at will. Re-posted here below in case you do not use twitter: and I certainly can’t blame you for that, Twitter is a cesspool of lunacy and ideological demagoguery the likes of which hasn’t been seen since Nero’s court.
