Help, what does "ad-hominem" mean?
It’s Latin. Ad means ‘to promote or disseminate commercial information’ As in “I think I’ll put a Classified Ad in for the old bicycle.”
Hominem is the plural of Hominy: a corn-based breakfast porridge associated with the Southern United States.
Therefore, ad hominem means, “Buy more grits, you cracker.”
How you didn’t know this I don’t know yet it’s probably due to you not paying attention during your school years and that’s probably because you don’t have the mental capacity.
