Guilt by association
Guilt by association is the notion that:
- 1. A certain group is bad.
- 2. You are a part of that group.
- 3. Therefore, you are bad.
When guilt by association is done, the way you are categorized may or may not be called into question. It may thus be either a facet of categorism such as stigmatization or an abstraction of categorism such categorist co-definitions or Loosely defined Abyss-category.
