Labels, these are names or tags given to people that look walk or talk in a different way to us as humans have an innate desire to place labels on everything, as they give people a sense of order, and a way of distinguishing things.
Yet, people aren't things they are humans beings and the only thing that distinguishing one human from another is not what's on the outside it what's on the inside. Using labels to describe or distinguish on person from another ignores deeper reflections if their personhood. A person's race, sexuality, socioeconomic status or geographic origins does not define all that he or she is or will be.
Yet it does in today's society a society where we are supposed to be open minded and accepting.

We need to eradicate this word from our vocabulary.
People are not defined by their sexuality, they are so much more than that as a person as a human being yes that's what they are not “homo” or “gay”. When we use this word it suggest that someone's sexuality is something that you should be ashamed of which it is definitely not! And never let anyone make you feels as if you should be ashamed of yourself because of your sexuality.
If you are being labeled do not let these labels get to you these lables as I said before are outdated and over used, my best advice would be to ignore them and think inside its just a word and that word no matter who says it will never define you as a person and never let it define you as if you let them get to you and start letting that word define you as a person you are simultaneously showing that person that they are winning but if you don't let it get to you that's one battle won all on its own. When wanting to reply to these labels there is many ways to approach this as you can do the same and insult them or say something similar or you be the bigger person and say the truth and tell that they don't know who your are and that them labeling you
In Neil Postman’s novel, Amusing Ourselves to Death, he argues that rationality in America has become dictated by television. Through the use of ethos, pathos, and logos, Postman demonstrates that his claim is valid and reliable. These are three forms of persuasion that are used to influence others to agree with a particular point of view. Ethos, or ethical appeal, is used to build an author’s image. Ethos establishes a sense of credibility and good character for the author (Henning). Pathos, or emotional appeal, involves engaging “an audience's sense of identity, their self-interest, their emotions” (Henning). If done correctly, the power of emotions can allow the reader to be swayed to agree with the author. Logos, or logical appeal,
Ethos, pathos, and logos are all devices that Barbara Ehrenreich effectively uses throughout her novel Nickel and Dimed to prove that America needs to address the commonly overlooked issue of poverty within every community. It is important that she uses all three devices because they help support her argument by increasing her credibility, connecting to the readers’ emotions, and appealing to their sense of logic. The combination of these devices puts a sense of urgency on the problem Ehrenreich is addressing and therefore creates an effective argument.
The rhetorical device that I thought was most effective was his use of Pathos. I believe his purpose for using this type of rhetoric is to reach the heart of those he was writing to in hopes of moving them so much so that they feel a, “call to action,” so to speak. While some may argue that Martin Luther King, Jr.’s(MLK) use of logos was most effective, I disagree because while it is possible to persuade someone with logic, wouldn’t you feel compelled to act immediately if something moves your heart rather than waiting for your brain to convince your heart and then act. For example, in paragraph 7, it states, “We have waited for more than 340 years for our constitutional and God given rights.” as well as, “when you suddenly find your tongue
Besides a beginning, middle, and end, every great story contains three main things: pathos, ethos, and logos. Pathos in Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss varies from child to adult. A child may experience pathos or emotion in the form of happiness as they read about the silliness of the characters and laugh at the illustrations. An adult, however, may experience extreme annoyance from rereading the same obnoxious phrase over and over again. Adults may also be transported through the words of the great Dr. Seuss back to their childhood and experience the book with a childlike joy as they reread the words once read to them.
The term Rhetoric can be defined as “the faculty of observing in any given case the available means of persuasion.” In order to use rhetoric devices correctly you need; ethos, pathos, and logos. Ethos is an appeal to ethics, and it is a means of convincing someone of the character or credibility of the persuader. Pathos is an appeal to emotion, and is a way of convincing an audience of an argument by creating an emotional response. Logos is an appeal to logic, and is a way of persuading an audience by reason.
In this essay, I will closely examine the role of ethos, pathos, and logos as they were utilized in the 1992 Presidential Debate video clip. Throughout Clinton and Bush’s debates, they used the three options of persuasion effectively and discretely; however, it is evident that out of the three ways of persuasion, the candidates used ‘pathos’ because of the content they were providing. It was apparent that Bill Clinton was more prepared to display forms of persuasion than George H.W. Bush was because Clinton had prior experience dealing with lower income people. In the upcoming paragraphs, I will explain and analyze how each candidate made use of the three forms of persuasion: logos, pathos, and ethos.
An argument is a two-sided claim that has facts and evidence to back up and justify each side of the argument. The purpose of any argument is to persuade the opponent and the audience to one side or the other. The goal of the speaker or writer is to use persuasive techniques that end with the audience’s vote. These techniques include pathos, logos, and ethos. Each one of these tactics plays an important role in producing a strong case in a debate or argument. Recently, in this composition class, I have put these techniques to use to create a strong argument with two other classmates. Our debate topic was whether or not the death penalty should continue to be legal in the United States. My team served as the proponents of the argument and tried to use each one of these three main persuasive techniques, pathos, logos, and ethos.
Reverend Charles Caleb Colton, a writer of pros and poetry, once said, “Corruption is like a ball of snow, once its set a rolling, it must increase”. Once corruption has started, there is so many people involved, greed sets in, and it’s so big of a problem it is so hard to stop it or leave it alone, and once you’re in too deep it’s difficult to get out. Under those circumstances, a book called “Animal Farm”, by George Orwell, was an allegory. It was published on the heels of World War II in England in 1945 and in the United States in 1946. The book was written during the war as a cautionary short story in order to expose the dangers presented by Stalinism and Totalitarian Government. With this intention, the pigs on Animal Farm used the
The term Logos is a logic, objective, proof, reason. It is a fact or incident that happened in a period of time. Whereas pathos is a feeling, empathy, values. Similarly, Ethos is a trust, credibility. The video has used a huge number of a rhetorical plan to get point across including logos, ethos, and pathos.
Furthermore, the article shows an efficient use of the logos. The authors try to persuade the readers as much as possible about the new executive order that the president recently approved using primary sources such as people coming from these countries and also from people working in the government, like the press secretary of the White House. ¨In the hours after the executive order was signed, border officials detained or turned away anyone who was born in or hold a passport from one of the seven countries, even those who also had citizenship in countries other than the targeted seven. ¨ This evidence is particularly effective for this rhetorical situation. The author is using the information and the primary source as efficiently as possible.
1. “… I knew that it meant “happy,” like when I’m reading about the Apollo space missions, or when I am still awake at 3 a.m. or 4 a.m. in the morning and I can walk up and down the street and pretend that I am the only person in the world.” (3.2) _Christopher In this chapter, Christopher talks about emotions and how his happiness comes from being in his own company. Solitude is Christopher’s desire, and he longs to be by himself.
I believe that Young Living in this ad uses Logo’s by claiming their products are “trusted,” and most people would like to think that the natural solution is better in the long term than pharmaceutical products. We are seeing a huge switch in people views with pharmaceuticals and leaning more on a natural solution. In the case it is essential oils. They use Pathos by stating these products are for the ones that “trust you,” suggesting your family and friends, while having a picture of a mother and daughter in the setting of a home. I don’t think there is a better marketing tactic than to target your family and to give them a way to live better. They also use big bold blue letters for this ad. I think blue suggests a soothing and trusting emotion
The first one is about ethos. In my opinion, I found the very obviously example of ethos is from my mother. My mother is a doctor, and I think she has the power to tell her patients what is the right thing that they can do what they can not do because the doctor advises for patient is professional so that The patient must according to the rules by doctor.
Labels. What are labels? In the Oxford New Zealand Dictionary, the word label is defined as “a small piece of paper, cloth, or metal, etc. fixed on or beside something to show what it is or what it costs, or its owner or destination, etc.” However, labels are not just a “small piece of paper, cloth, or metal etc.” it’s not just a name for an object, it’s also used to categorize humans into different groups according to the biological makeup and physical appearance. Human labels exist, it is the mechanism behind racism, fuelling it. Racism, today in the 21st century across the globe, including such a multicultural and diverse country like New Zealand is still well and truly alive due to the fact that labels are still used to define humans. A person should not have to shoulder the burden of being “fixed” to a label to “show what it is or what it costs”. So, does a label define a human being?
