Stupid things people say: no. 7

Bet you thought you wouldn’t see one of these again, eh?

Here’s one that’s annoyed me recently:

“…what next?”

An example of this is “First gay people are allowed to get married and then what next? Animals marrying humans?”

This stupid phrase is an example of a slippery slope argument where people automatically assume that once one thing has happened that loads of other things, that they deem to be bad, will also happen.

In reality, however, there is no actual evidence that things follow one another in a downward spiral and so simple hearing those two words together actually makes my skin crawl!
