What in heck is wrong with you people? I wrote something in praise of those wonderful women who not only taught the three R's but a fourth one as well, "Respect" as someone else mentioned. So why, as I previously responded to Marie, "does everyone... take offense at the mention of them being spinsters? I was giving those wonderful women credit for dedicating their lives to being educators. What is so wrong with that?"
But Matty decided it was necessary to tell me what the word spinster means - "Spinster: A term used to indicate an unmarried woman who was past the usual or legal age for marrying (and sometimes also considered unlikely to marry)"
Those women who I still hold in such high esteem were unmarried women, much older than our own mothers, who all had gray hair. Now if that doesn't accurately categorize them as spinsters I'd like to know the word that does. I meant nothing derogatory in my remark as should have been obvious to anyone who bothered to read my text.
The reason I left The Brooklyn Stoop was due to a few mean-spirited posters who had nothing constructive to write but rather continually misinterpreted and attacked others. Unfortunately I find the same kind of people here so this will be my swan song. Don't bother to reply since I won't see it (or them). I'm outaheah.
P.S. I don't believe that some of you even grew up in Brooklyn, but are merely impostors who are trying to bask in Brooklyn's glory.
