an argument that ignores all unfavorable evidence
(law) a pleading that alleges new facts in avoidance of the opposing allegations
occurs when (a) accepting an idea or criticism when applied to an opponent's argument but rejecting it when applied to one's own argument, or (b) rejecting an idea or criticism when applied to an opponent's argument but accepting it when applied to one's own (Angeles, 1992, p. 109).
A fallacy that occurs when someone makes themselves a special exception, without sound justification, to the reasonable application of standards, principles or expectations.
Special pleading is a form of spurious argumentation where a position in a dispute introduces favorable details or excludes unfavorable details by alleging a need to apply additional considerations without proper criticism of these considerations themselves. Essentially, this involves someone attempting to cite something as an exemption to a generally accepted rule, principle, etc. without justifying the exemption.
