    Sullivan’s main claim of homosexuals having the same sanctity of marriage is overshadowed by his generalizations of conservative views. Throughout his article, Sullivan references “conservatives” without analyzing who this group is compiled of. He assumes that those who identify themselves as conservatives are against gay marriage making claims for them saying gay marriage “chips away at the prestige of traditional relationships” (Sullivan 31). Because of his repetitive generalizations with conservatives throughout his argument, Sullivan decreases the validity in his stance due to the tone of the article representing him attacking conservatives. In contrast, Bennett’s argument starts off with a generalization on the definition of marriage.

    female characters. The Idols of the theater are used as methods for understanding, which are dramatized (in that they are generalizations or stereotypes), unreal, and are made up or false, all of which ultimately lead to some form of error. Double Bind plays into the stereotypes of women as inherently less than men as they are considered idiotic and stupid, promiscuous, and crazy. This connects to the Idols of the theater because the male characters only see the predominant female characters,…

    The ability to interpret potential threats and react immediately is an essential evolutionary construct. One of the most important mechanisms for recognizing potential danger is fear generalization: the ability to apply an untrained response to various, similar stimuli. Inventions for overcoming fear generalization are essential to creating treatments for fear and anxiety-associated psychological disorders; however, as Dunsmoor and Murphy illustrate in their article, the Pavlovian-conditioning…

    elitist due to the fact that he is regarding himself highly. This can clearly be seen when he makes up a word, therefore hinting that he is an equal to Shakespeare.

In addition to this, Salter also uses an oversimplification in the beginning of the essay. He explains that without language there is nothing, no expression, no religion.
