Not a fallacy ... merely condescension.

We have some masters of that here (in a good way) Big Grin

I mean, come on --- everybody knows they're not oversexed - just really, really kinky...

Wink

Now, that is fallacious!

It's the Libran part of October wherein lies the maximum voracious kinkocity.

Sample size = 6.

If fire is a kink, count me as #7 in your sample set. Smile

RE: What do you call this Fallacy?
I usually respond to that with something like:

If you could be so kind as to properly address, refute and/or point the fallacies that you are claiming that are present, instead of just masturbating your ego ad nauseam to awkward levels, that would be awesome, please go on, allow me such enlightenment.
-------------------------------------------------------------
You can easily defeat condescending displays by talking about them as they are, use terms as "ego masturbation", and "bravado", challenge your opponent to stand in defense of his position...

If he refuses yet again, imply immaturity, and then dishonesty on his part, challenging him to stand in defense of his points in face of embarrassment, over and over.

That which can be destroyed by the truth should be.”
