I'm a 28 year-old Instructor of Argument. It is my job to teach incoming college students that talking smack professionally is about having an opinion and backing it up.

Don't be surprised if you see stuff about Disney, or kittens, or even my own artwork. Sometimes, I need to not be so serious.

I’m saving your reblog. The next time I get papers turned in on this subject I’ll direct them toward this list of links. This was a serious problem in the last argument class I taught.
