"Would you say this is an acceptable way to approach fashion?"
Question asked in a Reddit "Ask Me Anything" of fashion critic Robin Givhan. I consider it a rhetorical question, but she did answer it. No, of course, is the obviously right answer, but it's also obviously wrong, since to answer it is to misinterpret it. And yet, if you submit to "Ask Me Anything," aren't you implicitly offering to answer everything? A clever way out would be to say: I said you can ask me anything, but I don't believe you are asking me anything.
"The rhetorical question is... any question asked for a purpose other than to obtain the information the question asks."
Here's a nonrhetorical question: For what purpose did the above-quoted man ask his question?
