"Straw man" means imagining a problem and then attacking it, which is 
preciesly what you are doing here.

You all are so blatantly just stating your opinions as objective fact, 
so it's pretty hopeless.  I've tried to appeal to your sense of "fair 
treatment" to all humans, which is a sentiment common to all decent 

I don't need to attack you: you're attitudes will turn off a sufficient 
percentage of people on their own.
