    Hello Family,

    "Man's greatest invention is an honest woman..."

    Uhhh ... i read that on one of our most cherished Member's signature ... and wondered what it meant.

    Any of you care to share your thoughts after reading that statement?

    or better yet ... uhhh ... perhaps our Family Member will enlighten us. :kiss:

    :heart:

    Ahhhhh! LOL! you caught that one too! Hahaha!
    Sis, When I first read this sig, I just laughed to myself.
    Then I thought about it. When did man create women, be it
    a honest one or a habitual liar? Then I thought, Nooooo!
    This member can't possibly mean this the way it seems to me. This member is much to balanced for that kind of stinkin thinkin! So I just laughed some more and SMH.
    I would love to hear the personal meaning behind that sig! LOL!
    Shoot, Maybe it is meant exactly like it sounds to me! Hahaha!

    Peace and love my sisters...

    My tag line is a variation of author Cornelia Otis Skinner's quote:

    "Women's virtue is man's greatest invention."

    Author Mary W. Shelley adds:

    "Invention, it must be humbly admitted, does not consist of creating out of void, but out of chaos."

    I've found that quotation to be very offensive, Destee. And after all, no man made me. My mother did, with a little help from my father. It also suggests that woman was made just for man. Total crap.

    I'm not suprised at your response Gempis, considering the fact that you are a lesbian. Whether you want to believe it or not. Male and female were created for each other.

    Please refrain from posting anothers sexual preferences. I don't know that she is in fact a lesbian, but surely it's totally up to her to expose it as she see's fit.

    Please edit or delete your post!

    Well,

    I peeped the signature as well. I wasn't offended, because I know that man didn't invent women, God did, and yes God also created us for man.
