I always thought that to be able to call "strawman" on somebody who is comparing A with B one has to prove that A has a difference to B that is relevant to the argument. I've seen people calling out on strawman because there is a difference between A and B, where of course there is or otherwise it will not be a simile or metaphor, without any regard as to whether the difference has any relevance to the topic at hand. Thoughts?
