I’ve started this thread so it can just be linked to when someone does this, here. Thanks!

It is probably worth pointing out that like many of the classic informal fallacies, it is not a natural law; it is possible to make an argument that strictly speaking suffers from the genetic fallacy yet has value as an argument. For example, standpoint theory – a common idea in ethnic studies and women’s studies – is occasionally dismissed as falling under the genetic fallacy. However, standpoint theory is certainly not nonsense.

And now you’re making me look at yet another poop thread, dammit.
