Möller's law is an internet adage that deals with issues of conversations on gender and language. The text of the law is as follows:

As a gender discussion continues, the probability that an appeal for the use of Spivak pronouns will occur approaches one. At such a point, the discussion is forfeited and must cease on the spot.

Spivak pronouns (and sie and hir as well) are seen by some as a sort of straw man for gender and language discussions. Since they are such highly contentious constructions, bringing them into the argument is considered a faux pas unless the discussion originally intended to discuss gender pronouns in language.
