Mencken on Women

Normally, [women’s] weakness makes masculine protection necessary to their existence and to the exercise of their overpowering maternal instinct, and so their whole effort is to obtain this protection in the easiest way possible. The net result is that feminine morality is a morality of opportunism and imminent expediency, and that the normal woman has no respect for, and scarcely a conception of abstract truth. Thus is proved a fact noted by Schopenhauer and many other observers: that a woman seldom manifests any true sense of justice or of honor.

~H. L. Mencken

    I know I’m gonna offend some “wimmin” here but I have to agree. I’ve never seen a woman manifesting any true sense of justice or honor.
