Flirting with Strawman Fallacy

Rasheed, Muhammad. "Flirting with Strawman Fallacy." Cartoon. The Official Website of Cartoonist M. Rasheed 07 Aug 2021. Pen & ink w/Adobe Photoshop color.

This #MRasheedCartoons image was inspired by a currently circulating FB vid in which some dude is implying that when the average person says that they are researching something that they must mean they are doing highly-skilled professional scholar grade "scientific research, and is therefore lying. lol This is a clear strawman effigy fallacy, because as a layman, obviously I mean something different when I use the word "research" than when a ivy league grad scientist says it. That doesn't mean that I don't know how to look up material and read it so I can get an informed understanding on a subject of importance though.

Obviously, the entire purpose of this jackass guy's rant is to use pseudo-intellectualism to try and shame people into accepting the majority opinion of a topic and give up their own ability to think for themselves. "You ain't no scientist, so stop tryin' to think!"
