If you don't feel that way, then the comment doesn't apply to you and there's no reason for you to be defensive. But it does most definitely apply to *some* people.
Aliens, unicorns and non-canonical "Bosom Buddies" fanfic aren't strawmen with "some people" either.
Argue against the individual, not the mind-constructed "scary golem of bad thinking" that doesn't really exist.
To me, "some people" can't make an argument without constructing the scariest amalgamation of poor thinking from different individuals.
LOL, see what I did there?
I'm high fiving myself.
