Memes: Logic: Reductio ad absurdum
| Reductio ad absurdum |
Reduction to absurdity is where the slippery slope meets the straw man fallacy. Someone claims that some drugs should be illegal, so the other person pretends that means that ALL drugs should be illegal. Or you ask your Italian Mom if you can get your ears pierced and she accuses you of wanting to look like a circus freak!"
