None of this makes any sense. "A point can be valid but wrongly addressed." What does that mean? Did you mean to say "A point can be valid, but wrongly stated?"zimbos_05 wrote: ↑Sat Nov 09, 2019 12:54 am
Not really. Your latter phrasing suggests that you are just making a statement of how someone feels as opposed to the point they are making. A point can be valid, but it can be wrongly addressed. The latter would suggest that you don't actually understand, but are playing off the message as nonsense, regardless of how rational it may sound.
The HHM analogy is off the mark completely.hhm can say that he feels "more black players deserve a chance" and I can say, "that is a valid point". He can then say, "in order to to do this, we must stop white players from playing the game, and remove all white people from any position of power". I can then disagree with this because his manner of addressing his point is incorrect. So, i can understand his initial point, I just don't necessarily agree with him in general nor would support him.
This is because you compared Zimdoggy's blatantly homophobic comment "LGBTQ rights promote pedophilia" with HHM's entirely plausible one of "black players deserve more chances". Let me say this again, the first comment is bigoted. The second comment is one that is reasonable. You cannot compare an apple to an orange.
A second reason why your comparison falls off the mark is in the type of comments you are comparing. Zimdoggy's comment is either true or false. It can be proven or disproven with data. HHM's comment is neither true nor false, its an opinion. It cannot be proven or disproven with data.
