Assignment: Analyzing a Visual Argument
Though the T-shirt slogans pictured here seem designed to confront and perhaps annoy viewers, each addresses a serious public issue. The “Jesus Loves Me Too” shirt is part of a pro-vegetarianism campaign sponsored by the leftist advocacy group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). The pro–gun rights shirt is available on <ThoseShirts.com>, a Web site that caters to politically conservative tastes. Do you think either of these images implies a reasoned argument? If so, what is being argued? If not, what would need to be added for you to consider the slogan an argument?
Your discussion grade will be based on the thoroughness, accuracy, and insightful response; also, your use of correct spelling, grammar and sentence structure and paragraph format. Develop at least the minimum word count of 350 words. Should include an introduction paragraph, one body paragraph, and a concluding paragraph; use at least 12-inch font, times new roman, indent your paragraphs, and double space the document. Send the final assignment as an attachment file.
Be sure you spell check your statements. Read the entire forum question before responding.
