    I don't know how true this may be as it relates to other women, so I think that this would be interesting to find out. One day I was speaking with an older woman about women and I asked her the question of; "If women had a choice to choose between they themselves having brains or beauty, which one would they prefer and why"? Her answer to me was so profound and short that her simplicity to the question blew me away. Before I reveal her answer to the question, what is your answer? Both Brothers and Sisters can answer this.

    If we had a choice?! ... we absolutely do have a choice.

    Not only do we have a choice ... we don't even gotta choose ... as we can easily have both of those.

    In fact, most of us do ... :)

    Love You!

    Prove it. Is more money being spent by the masses of our women on beauty or education?

    Prove it you say?! ... hmmm ... well ... whether one has beauty and/or brains is subjective.

    My comment is to all the women ... they can easily have both ... for it is what is in one's own mind that matters most.

    If they happen to meet a Brother Keita, that thinks they have neither ... they can take your opinion or keep theirs.

    It's not exactly "provable" in a way that might change your mind, have you encouraging the beauty and brains in all of us.

    No ... you are entitled to your opinion ... but that's all it is ... much like ours ... an opinion.

    When presented with opinion ... one can hold on to theirs, or take what they're hearing ... i choose to hold on to mine.

    You can hold on to yours too ... no real right or wrong in it ... i suppose ... :look:

    Love You! :grouphug:

    to me beauty isn't something you can just choose i think it is a gift. true beauty is having "brains" too so to speak, i would say wisdom. and something beautiful without a brain or good sense isn't beautiful to me. a beautiful woman without brains is like delicious-looking food with no taste. it smells good and stirs your emotions but it brings no sustenance to anyone.

    Remember now; this isn't my opinion, this was a question that I asked an older woman about women and she indeed answered me in amazing fashion, which was why I posed the question here. Now then, "If given a choice, which would women choose and why"?

    ok... well i guess i did't really answer the question either... so if it was a choice i would choose brains...why because i hate not knowing and being ignorant and if i don't have brains i can't be happy.
