Guilt by association

Jump to: navigation, search

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.
