May I propose a related law that applies to feminism-related discussions? It seems like once someone runs out of arguments when a feminist issue is discussed, they're more likely to use FGM to diminish said issue.

As it's inspired by real comment thread (on redesign for Brave's princess Merida), let me give an exact quote here: "I see bouncier red curls while african girls have their clitorises smash off with rocks." Yup.

I propose a corollary to Godwin's Law called Graham's Theorem. Whereby the longer the participants in an argument try to avoid using Hitler, the likelihood of using someone else who has committed attrocities, most often Stalin, becomes greater,

I'm curious, from where it is found that Hitler's greatest wish was to be remembered forever?

You put Godwin's Law inside special brackets like this: [=ŢGodwin's LawŢ =]. And ptitles are not at all grounds for cutting. In fact, they're encouraged for titles that have punctuation in them.

Edit: Okay, it doesn't seem to be letting me display the right character to demonstrate, but still. ~

Oh okay.

This is a proper ptitle. Godwin's Law is, strictly speaking, supposed to have the apostrophe, and you can't put an apostrophe4 in a title without a ptitle. In fact, apostrophes were a driving force for inventing ptitles, IIRC.
