This thread is for people to share arguments that are so poor you just can't "keep them down"
but have to spew them all over the internet so that others can share in your disgust.

Feel free to state the obvious and explain why the argument is so indigestibly yuck.

a few suggestions for how to make this a good thread:

(1) Don't post and take shots at arguments that you've seen people post elsewhere at this site. That's just asking for trouble. Focus on stupid statements from other sites on the net.

(2) When someone posts what they think is a bad argument and you disagree (yes, even if it's a good argument for why we should all get vaccinated Rolling Eyes) don't question it, but just ignore them and let it go.

(If we all follow these guidelines, there should be fewer 5-page flame wars and a more condensed collection of bad logic from all over the internet for us to groan at.)

(edgar posted this one, but he wasn't endorsing it, so it's fair game)

"Urinals lead restrooms equal in square footage to offer more excreting opportunities to men than to women," she explained, causing longer lines for women's bathrooms and other inequities. "When such features as fainting couches, full length mirrors, and vanities are added—as they sometimes are—to women’s but not to men’s rooms, the ratio of excreting opportunities given equal square footage gets even worse for women."

This was presented as an argument for why men should sit to pee and why they should get rid of urinals.

Really? Men's bathrooms offer more opportunities to relieve oneself than ladies' rooms, so you want to fix the inequality by taking opportunities away from men by getting rid of urinals because they're efficient?

OMFG, just make ladies' rooms bigger or something if you're so hellbent on leveling everything out. Don't get rid of devices because they're efficient!!!
