Storyboard Text

  • men's Olympic events have been around longer than women's; therefore, men are better athletes.
  • That is just a fallacy: appeal to antiquity / tradition. Thus meaning that the Olympics is older for men not making the male athlete better.
  • That is Hasty Generalization. The "Rock" is just one man, and some males are very skinny and muscular. Also a lot of women have bigger muscles than men like bodybuilders. 
  • The "Rock" is more muscular than all women, so all men must be more muscular than women. 
  • That's Appeal to Authority since you think that just because you are a MLB player and there's no league for females that everybody should believe what you say. 
  • "We" are a Major League Baseball team, and girls don't have one, so guys are more committed to baseball. 
  • That is Appeal of common practice. Not all men can lift really heavy weights like 250 lbs. Some cannot because their muscles are not developed or are disabled. Also lots of women lift heavy.
  • That man back there is lifting very heavy weights, and so are all the men in this gym. That is no different then what goes on in any other gym.
  • What a False Dilemma! First of all you're telling me to chose between two options, but there could be more, and second, the US women have won 3 World Cup titles and the men none.
  • Either the men's U.S. pro soccer team makes more money because we are better. or we are better because we are men.
  • Red Herring!! My looks are completely irrelevant to my skills in basketball.
  • You need to work on your skills if you want to become good at basketball like me. Plus you are very pretty, and that probably distracts you from being good.
