Similar to the straw man argument, a straw meme is a logical fallacy presented in image form. Typical use is to assign misrepresented, exaggerated or completely false characteristics to an opposing viewpoint and then attack these characteristics instead of the actual viewpoint.
Typically, straw memes are met with supporting arguments such as, "sooooooo truuu!!!" and, "i'm steelin this!"
Straw meme examples:
Oh, you think (example A) because (example B)? Tell me more about (unrelated example C)!!!
If you're ok with (example A) but don't like (unrelated example B), then you're a hypocrite!!! Share if you agree.
