he was using your post as a platform to expound with his own ideas and take a couple side jabs at lil.

you will not defeat me, frownland. i learned how to logic in public school.
Saying "strawman" is to pseudo-intellectual college kids what "CIS" is to tumblr feminists. It's just word crack to them and they can't help but say it.

So where exactly in my post did I say she would never fuck anyone sober? Nowhere. Strawman. Or is posting about fucking someone the same as actually fucking someone? If that's the case I want to bang Heather Graham. I did misword it a little bit when I asked this question before though.

Wait, why am I explaining this to you? We've been down this road before and you can't seem to understand whichever wiki page you read about strawman fallacies

You do realize I wasn't sarcastically disagreeing with you, right? I have to be disagreeing with you for it to be a strawman.

so cause he replied to your post, you assume he was trying to represent your argument?

he can't just reply to your post with his own thoughts?

come one frownland, you know i'm right

Oooh ja, a fallacy within a fallacy. That makes me hard.

from wikipedia:

Quote:
A straw man is a common form of argument and is an informal fallacy based on giving the impression of refuting an opponent's argument, while actually refuting an argument which was not advanced by that opponent.[1]
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Straw_man

so to answer your question: yes. not only does he have to disagree with you, he has to attribute those statements to your argument. neither of which were implicit in his post.

frownland loses

Bro now you're strawmanning the definition of a strawman argument.

Guys, these strawmen are getting out of hand. They must be burned.
