A logical fallacy in which a number of choices n are given when in reality more than n exist. Two choices are usually given: the one the person wants chosen and one that is completely unacceptable. This is a misuse of the logical or operator in that all possibilities are not included.

For example, "You can come or you can stay here" ignores the option of going somewhere else.

To prove the use of False Dilemma, simply prove that another option exists.
