Dude. Two sentences does not constitute a paragraph and treating it as such as mechanical stupidity.
A paragraph is a distinct portion of written or printed matter dealing with a particular idea, usually beginning with an indentation on a new line. That's from the dictionary. One word constitutes a paragraph if it begins on a new line.
Dumbass.QuoteThe point of it was to showcase the absurdity of the strict male-female gender structure.
Yes, but it failed. It only showcased the weakness of the argument.QuoteAlso, no. The standard form for an essay is not strongest-weakest. In fact, that's actually a really bad idea. The second strongest should go near the end with the weaker ones in the middle.
I'm not an English major, so I'm going to cite an external authority, The Guide to Grammar and Writing from Capital Community College Foundation:QuoteThe second paragraph of the body should contain the second strongest argument, second most significant example, second cleverest illustration, or an obvious follow up the first paragraph in the body....The third paragraph of the body should contain the weakest argument, weakest example, weakest illustration, or an obvious follow up to the second paragraph in the body.
After looking at a dozen other sites, I can't find anything the specifically contradicts that. Do you have any citations to back up your argument?
You're not talking out of your ass, are you?
I think maybe you are.QuoteHuman memory tends to work that way.
Look, it's not like any of this is really relevant. This is quibbling over bullshit.
The point is that the essay is a bunch of Cartesian bullshit. Despite what a lot of people in this thread have expended a lot of hot air denying, the entire essay is founded on the assumption that there is a ghost in the machine, a driver in vehicle. She even uses that second metaphor, calls the body a machine, and claims the mind exist independent of the body.
I find such ideas boring and wanky. I said so. Everybody is fucking falling over themselves to defend it. I have no idea why.
