Distrusting scales

I disregard "it is either A or B".

Then, I have a strong distrust for scales: Anything that suggests that "it" can go between "A" or "B".

It is a better option than just the two options — I appreciate that.

The implication in a scale is that there are still only two options.
Convenient for the one doing the measuring. Not always reflective of the ones being measured.
