argument vs. shouting match

ARGUMENT: A “woman yelling at cat” meme, with the angry woman pointing and yelling “Using slogans and insults to silence ideas that may threaten your worldview” and the smarmy cat retorting “Using pathos, ethos and logos to invite others to test & adopt your ideas.”

Bottom text: “An academic argument is an evidence-based defense of a non-obvious position on a complex issue.

In a shouting match, the winner is usually determined by aggressiveness and stubbornness.”
