A false dichotomy is the presentation of two opposing conditions or views that do not properly represent all options. For example, “Do you still beat your wife?” is a false dichotomy because it assumes you have beaten your wife and asks if you have stopped. It is a false dichotomy because there is another option: you never have beaten your wife.
