    Women are my weakpoint

    Hello,
    I'm not fully sure if this sentence is (grammatically) correct:
    Women are my weakpoint.
    Let's write it this way:
    What is my weakpoint? -> Women.
    So I'm not sure if I should write:
    Women is my weakpoint.

    Cheers!

    True, but if you reverse it, you get:

    My weak point is women! (Correct)

    Also, there are fixed and idiomatic and currently used sayings, written by people who hadn't learnt the (rules ):

    'The wages of sin is death' - it would pusillanimous (and, indeed, risible) to 'correct' that old quote.
