F!S Throwback Thursday

[personal profile] thursday_anon 2015-12-10 11:51 pm (UTC)(link)
Some people get REALLY hung up on how fictional characters' names are pronounced.

And some people have difficulty separating the actor from the character.

Then again, sometimes the fictional version of something is way more awesome than the reality.

From the same post as above: Snacky's Law, ahoy!*

*(For those of you who haven't heard of Snacky's Law, it's kind of like Godwin's law, except with "those bitchy girls in high school" instead of Hitler/Nazis.)

On the last one, I don't think it's automatically "you lose the argument" depending on context.

For example, for a while tumblr often liked to claim it was this kind of 'bully free super accepting zone', so by comparing them to these characters who are in behavior bullies, they're saying that tumblr social justice had become what it claimed to be the opposite of.

Similarly if you were talking about a political leader who's actions and behavior was similar to Hitler, a comparison to Hitler would make sense in context.

I don't think the OP's point is at all invalid. I simply find it amusing that they chose that specific group of characters for the comparison. It's not that it's a bad comparison per se, but what it brings to my mind is the sort of arguments where one side would attempt to discredit the other by invoking Snacky's Law.

I suppose.

I guess my thing is that, there are a lot of arguments that when used stupidly they look, well stupid. But if say a comparison is misused by someone upset at criticism, it seems a bit silly that there should be a law saying that anybody who makes that comparison invokes some 'law' and loses.

(Hell in a fan argument once, I saw someone on the side of a fandom war that was being criticized tell the critics that she is writing them as villains that her hero kills in her NanoWrimo novel when she started 'losing'.)
