Fallacy of The General Rule:  Asserting that because something is generally true, it must be true in the specific. Refutation: General rules are just that – generally true of most of the cases. They do not claim absolute truth over all cases.  Example –  Bob: Abbey, women, in general, are more tough minded than men, so your sister must be more tough minded than her spineless husband.  Side Note: Make sure that you say exactly what you mean, and read carefully to see that others are doing the same.
