By now, you've may have gotten the gist of the fallacy.
-Event A is stated
-Event B is brought up as a more important issue
-Event A is dismissed as irrelevant or not as important as Event B
Now, let's look at some examples.
Little Tom: "Mom, I don't want to finish my food. I'm throwing it away."
Tom's Mom: "Don't throw it away! It doesn't matter that you don't want to eat. You must finish it! Don't you know there are starving children in Africa?"
Person A: We need to stand against injustice against women!
Person B: I completely agree. 100%. We also need to stand against the epidemic of suicide against in the male population. Suicide ranks high in the leading cause of death in men.
