It is private. She just twists what I say.

Then explain to her what a straw man is and why it is a logical fallacy.

Then tell her that she is misrepresenting your argument. Tell her what your argument actually is and how she is misrepresenting it.

I also try to tell her she twists my arguments. I also twist her strawman arguments back. Then she just ignores me.
I don't want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
I don't care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas...
Is...
Youuuuuu

Something may also help say for example she does a starwman.............xyz.

You then respond yes if my argument was abc then xyz would be a good counter but abc was NOT my argument.

You can apply some extra pressure if you want.........

Were you under the impression that abc was my argument here ? or are you deliberately misconstruing the argument ?
