do find male nudity attractive. Finding just one person who finds males attractive, and are more attracted to males than females, puts this premise in question. You could also pose problems with the concept of “attraction.” By what criteria is the author judging attraction? P3: Like P1, this premise isn’t clear. We have no idea what “somewhat threatening” means. What part of male nudity is threatening? Who finds it threatening? Etc. The C1, while relevant to the MC, is not acceptable. It’s an assumption that is in no way obvious to a universal audience. Again, all you need is one person to disagree with this premise to problematize its acceptability. The arguer derives C1 from P1 to P3. So, it can also be deemed unacceptable because it’s based on three problematic reasons. Though this second way of rejecting C1 isn’t as strong as recognizing that it’s a bad assumption, even without looking at its supporting rationale in this case. HC2 seems reasonable enough to accept based on common knowledge - how the masses respond to films could influence decisions about film making, at least to some degree. It’s also relevant to its MC.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
