What's the term/phrase when someone assumes that you take on the diametrically opposed view simply because you disagree with a position?
For example, I recently posted an article challenging monogamy, and the audience jumped to the conclusion that I was for promiscuity. Thinking that I was only promoting sexual freedom/promiscuity, they started challenging me and ignoring all nuances in between.
What is the name for this fallacious evaluation?
The reception of my article showed that many people commented based on ___________, unjustifiably assuming that my challenges were meant to discredit the discussed position in favor of its opposite extreme.
If it hasn't been coined, I'll call it a diametric fallacy.
