    Re: fear no man, trust no bitch

    Could you find it in any dictionary? I guess she is saying that no one should be afraid of a man and they shouldn't take a woman at face value either because that would be to underestimate her.

    Fear no man. Trust no bitch.

    My ex put it as her WhatsApp status.
    Please note my corrections above. It's important to follow these rules of written English at all times:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with one appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Capitalise proper nouns.

    When you wrote your first post, you somehow had it set to "centre justification", meaning that your lines all started in the middle of the text box. Make sure each line starts on the left.

    I have no idea if it's possible to comment on someone's WhatsApp status. If it is, perhaps you should respond with "Trust no one who uses a comma splice".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    If that's supposed to be a lighthearted way of saying "Fear no man; trust no woman", I find the use of the word 'bitch' offensive.

    And I'm a man.

    Re: fear no man, trust no bitch

    It is not an idiom because its meaning can be understood by giving each word its normal meaning.
