I found, in an old newspaper, an letter titled “A woman’s advice to women” by Alicia Farray. It stunned me. I tremble to publish it. Alicia writes:
Dear fellow women,
I got stung by a serpent called a man and I cannot sit by and see other women suffer the same fate. Let me say it straight. Men are devils in human skin. Don’t ask me to qualify this statement for I will not. The one I thought was an angel is worse than Lucifer. I hate him.
Take time to believe those hypocrites called men who come telling you they will die for you. You cannot be sure they love you. Many of them only need you to satisfy their beastly sexual drive, They are out to use you and dump you.
Move with your eyes open. See beyond the surface. Hear beyond the flowery words. They are the tools of shameless, unscrupulous, greedy men. Their dirty strategy is to flatter you and get you cheap.
95% of men are greedy, mean and shameless liars not to be trusted. I say shame to them.
Be both a dove and a serpent when you treat with men.
Love them with all your heart but be ready to sting if need be; and drive your venom right to their hearts.
Let no man make you his sex machine to be exploited to satisfy his base instincts.
If a man gives you one punch, give him three: one for his head; one for his heart; one for his mind. Never compromise with a man; and never say you forgive a man.
If he cheats on you with one woman, cheat on him with three, four men.
Assert yourself; and don’t be a cry baby. If you make yourself a cry baby, you are finished. Let fire meet with fire. Fire for fire is my motto. Make it yours and no man will take you for a ride.
I finally took the bold decision to publish this. I do not know how men will take it and how many women buy the ideas here. This letters shows the bitterness in the hearts of some women about the way men have treated them. I know you may ask but what of men? Some men have found it hard too. But why?
Are you for Alicia or for the men Alicia is virtually sentencing to death.
