I can’t begin to count the number of times someone has hit me with the Politically Incorrect, Therefore True fallacy (any Latin translation would be greatly appreciated). The basic idea is this: you assert something nonsensical or excessive, and then argue that because your ideas are not mainstream, any disagreement with you must be a form of politically correct repression. Included are arguments that a certain policy prescription must be followed because it’s the hard way.
Ironically, some arguments have been so successful in their use of PI->T that they’re now dominant, even though the people who believe in them still adhere to the myth that they’re being oppressed. It’s apparently dogma among conservatives and possibly moderates that women are biologically worse than men at math, and that blacks and Latinos are naturally dumber than whites while Asians are smarter. And yet, criticize either of these arguments, and you’ll get the standard reply: “Oh, this is yet another PC brainwashing.”
Let’s grant you for a moment that you’re being oppressed; that still doesn’t make you right. If you want to speak truth to power, you’re welcome to; just give evidence that your sexist, racist, militant, or pro-torture views are right. If after you’ve established your veracity without logical fallacies you want to talk about your oppression, feel free.
