How to use "Contumaciously" in context?

When I think of stubbornness and its close cousin, contumacity, I think of a young child who won't stop shaking their leg when asked to stop. It's a movement meant to annoy, provoke, or humiliate the person asking.

Contumacity often crops up with people who feel they'reBeyond the pale. They don't care what other people think or say, and they're not afraid to show it. Maybe the person has a reputation for being difficult, or perhaps they think they're above the law. Whatever the case may be, contumacious behavior is never welcome.
