Being ‘bakla’ is NOT the same as being gay

The Filipino word “bakla” used to be synonymous with male homosexual. That was back in the day when the stereotypical homosexual male was effeminate and silly-looking. Philippine cinema in the 1960s and 1970s (and even as recent as the 1980s and 1990s) almost always characterised male homosexuals that way. To be fair, even today, they […]

Top 3 Conspiracy Theories About President Aquino

Davao Mayor Rodrigo “Roddy” Duterte has yet to take the position of president in Malacanang but one can already see how hard the LP is working to put all the blame on him regarding the country’s ills even though President Aquino is still supposed to be the actual president of the Philippines. Oh well, what […]

On Independence Day

As I start writing this article’s first draft it is already the day after Independence Day in the Philippines. It is also only hours after a horrific event in which a bigot armed with an easily-purchased semi-automatic rifle entered an LGBT nightclub in Orlando, Florida, and embarked on a murderous rampage that left 50 people […]

Manny Pacquiao In The Senate: Proof That Pinoys Are Idiots

I never thought I’d be writing this to be honest. In truth, I really believed for just a moment that there may be hope for the Filipino people. That perhaps, on some level, there was enough of God’s wisdom that existed within their hearts for them to think critically and make the right choice. That […]

3 Pinoy Offensive Comedy Stereotypes That Need To Go

I remember writing an article about the way Pinoys need to change their comedy and this is more or less an extension or expansion of that article. See, besides annoying slapstick that seems more like cheap ripoffs of cartoon shows, Pinoy comedy is rife with stereotypes that would otherwise be deemed offensive in other countries […]

Homosexuality and Global Warming: Are they Science-based or Something Else?

Nothing is quite as amusing as waking up to the curses, insults, and angry voices from the uber-liberals reacting to a piece that challenges the narrative they hold sacred. Good Lord, the angry voices of these folks do sound like a bunch of jackals with hemorrhoids! So what did I do now? Ah yes, I […]
