Took that idea from an article on neuroscience. It's easy to paint a whole group with a stereotype, but individuals within that group are punished when they differ from the stereotype.


I think this was discovered by Gary Larson many years ago, It's the classic "Dammed if you do/Damned if you don't" paradox (and you'd better pick one or the other!)

The Theological Fallacy: ascribing everything to a deity with a plan, thereby making science, philosophy and policy (not politics) the downtrodden handmaidens of religion. The atheist version of this fallacy can best be summed up as "Everything happens for a reason."

It's only when we quit looking for a special meaning in existents (not in existence) that we began to find the real reasons for all manner of natural phenomena (ie for everything).

Jack Nicholson as Edward Cole in "The Bucket List":

Three things to remember when you get older: never pass up a bathroom, never waste a hard-on, and never trust a fart.
