Words from Wilde...Again

I've said it before, Oscar Wilde is my go-to guy for observations on life. Sadly, based on the quote by him copied below, I guess he and I never could have been friends. We couldn't have met up for coffee, strolled and discussed our philosophies on life, gone to the latest independent film. Much of what I've read about Wilde deals with his homosexuality and I wonder, doesn't our society allow for men and women to be friends if one, or both, is gay? Doesn't that make it ok? What if a woman is gay, can she then not be friends with other women? How do we feel when our partners have a friend that could be competition?

“Between men and women there is no friendship possible. There is passion, enmity, worship, love, but no friendship.”

  1. Probably because (as the male of the species) he understood the wanderings of the male mind.......where as women have an encompassing love that they (men) don't yet understand?
