Which team are you on? Post in red colour for ladder and blue for stepladder. Or you can post with the normal colour if you don't take sides, like me.

I don't take sides when it comes to this debate. It just depends on what sort of (step)ladder it is. If it folds, it's a stepladder, if it doesn't... then it's a ladder!

Judging things based of narrow minded cultural assumptions is just pointless. It still helps you get up into higher positions, so either way, it's a ladder.

Team stepladder. I don't trust the ladders. You never know whenever you're doomed to fall off one.

Now, stepladders, they can stay rigid and yet are still flexible enough to move around. It's got two purposes in one! What a deal!

Here's a note: This is supposed to be a battle to decide wether it's a ladder or stepladder. Just saying.

All stepladders are ladders, but not all ladders are stepladders. I'm really not sure which team that puts me on, since I'm okay with using either term interchangeably for stepladders, but I'll have a cow if some calls a ladder a stepladder.

Yeah... I heard there was a thread like this but I think it got locked...
That's why I made THIS thread.

If you think it shoule be stepladder, then you're on the blue side. If you think we should always call it a ladder, you're on the red side. If you think both terms should co-exist, like I do, you don't have a side and can post in the default colours.

Phoenix is actually the head of the Cult of Stepladders. Sure, most of the time, it's actually a stepladder. But look here:
Image
That's not a stepladder. That's a folding ladder. Yet Phoenix insists that it's a stepladder. Ema questioned him on this, and rejected Phoenix's claims, but come nine years, and she has turned to the step side of the ladders.Trucy was raised by Phoenix, and she insists on stepladder. Athena was inspired by Phoenix to become a defense attorney, and lo and behold, she calls it a stepladder. All of it is just Phoenix's master plan, to change language as we know it. To enforce his narrow minded cultural assumptions. So that it would be forever known... as a stepladder.

I found a STEPladder lying on the ground at Dreamworld once. I KNOW it's a stepladder! It even has a platform.
I know the difference.

Thinking about it, I haven't actually presented an argument yet in this thread for my stance. Only now do I feel the need to correct that.

As everyone can agree, stepladders may be ladders, but never the other way around. Why is that? It's simple; because the former has a particular attribute to it that separates it from a universally recognized ladder. It can fold out into an A-frame and stand on its own, while a ladder must either be leaned upon or attached to a solid surface. It's self-explanatory up to here.

Now, consider this. Why would there be a need to specify between the two if one word accounts for all? It's the very reason why we all have different identifiers of similar objects: to prevent the two from being confused for each other.

If I had a basket of tangerines, I could very easily call them "oranges", as they're rather similar to each other in color and somewhat in taste. And yet, the two originated from completely different regions of the globe. Would it still be fair to call them the "same thing" if they look and taste similar? By that logic, we might as well be fooled by docile king snakes to think they're venomous coral snakes, or call Phoenix Wright "Mr. Birdman" because his name and hairdo are like those of a bird! And he probably tastes like chicken.

Odd tangents aside, I find it imperative to carefully distinguish between identity of a single entity and of a category. Hence, if it doesn't fold, it's a ladder. If it folds with an A-frame, it's a stepladder. If it folds without an A-frame, it's a folding ladder. If it's made of rope, it's a rope ladder. If it has at most three rungs, it's the back of a chair. Etc.

It's a good thing we can differentiate between stepladders and ladders, otherwise this would happen:

Person 1: Look! Over there! A defence attorney!
Person 2: No, that's actually a prosecutor!
Person 1: So? What's the difference? You need to stop judging things based on narrow-minded cultural assumptions!

And so on...

Um, please read the rules. If you are on Team Stepladder, post in BLUE.

You can edit your post, though, so I'll give you a second chance.
