The frontman fallacy is an informal fallacy that was proposed by Peter Zohrab during the 1990s following a discussion on Usenet, an early online discussion forum.

The frontman fallacy is the mistaken belief that people (men, specifically) who are in positions of authority in democratic systems use their power mainly to benefit the categories of people (the category of "men", in particular) that they belong to themselves.[1]

The frontman fallacy is somewhat similar to the later Apex fallacy.
