It's only a fallacy when the "true" nature of Scottishness simply cannot be specified by any rational means. If it can, then we can indeed have a "true" or "false" Scotsman, and it's no fallacy.

"Christian" is very specifiable, in a way that son-of-Scotland is not.
How about an internet forum?
Ha. To preen on an open, unmoderated internet forum is surely one of the lowest achievements a person can have. It's pretty much just one step ahead of winning a video game.

Man is God. God needs and wants a Goddess. Secular men are free and equal. Should our women not also be free and equal?

I have 2 daughters and I have fought for them to be equal and free in society. I'll take my lumps to that end, and I rail at any scripture that tries to put women into a lesser position to men.
Good. Any man today who does not side with feminists is not much of a man.

This O.P. is not terribly successful because it is forcing men to see how misogynous we men have all been for so long.

You mean, don't you think anyone should aim higher than the gratuitously ad hominem? :wink:

Absolutely.
