Brother Ddouble, are you implying that women and men pursue relationships in the same ways? Haven't we all reached the conclusion that men have a tendency to select women based on looks, whereas women select men based on income? So why would I give you all the same advice that I would give women? Secondly, in my view, though the two discussions centered on the same topic, the argument that was presented then, and the argument that's being presented now are not the same. In the discussion brother Honestbrother is referencing, the women, sister Frenchy in particular, was not defending a right to discriminately date superficial and materialistic men. Essentially, Frenchy was defending her right to fashion her own conception (whether it was a lawyer or a janitor) of what a "creme of crop" man means to her. And rather than acknowledging her argument, many of you all insisted on imposing your views of what you thought creme of crop meant to Frenchy, even though she never stated or described what her actual conception was.

If brother Detroit, however, re-enters this discussion, either today or tomorrow, to tell me that he does in fact pursue women of substance (that is, women who have a lot more to offer a relationship, other than their looks), then I will accept his testament as the truth, rather than reading something into his statements that are just not there.
