Fun With Sophistry
curi: ok you can't rape an animal, right?
curi: ok, so if you dehumanise someone enough, in your mind, you can't rape him
curi: so, dehumanising people must be worse than rape, because it's as bad as rape *plus* you think of the person as less than human.
curi: the theory that people behave like animals, controlled by their genes (sociobiology) is dehumanising
curi: therefore sociobiology is WORSE THAN RAPE
curi2: brilliant deduction!
