Second post in my "Understanding the Principles of Argumentation" series.

You have just provided us with a fine example of a common logical falacy
called "bifurcation":

"Also referred to as the "black and white" fallacy. Bifurcation is
the presentation of a situation or condition with only two
alternatives, whereas in fact other alternatives exist or can exist."
