False Dilemma

Also called false dichotomy, fallacy of bifurcation, black-or-white fallacy, the false delamma presents two alternative states as the only possibilities when more possibilities may exist.

  • You are either with me or against me.
  • Either you buy me this toy, or you don't love me. (Child saying to a parent)

This is a common fallacy.
