Bashing a ‘Homophobe’ but supporting a ‘Sexist’

So after the political correctness and insensitivity police have savagely beaten up Congressman Manny Pacquiao (for comparing homosexuals to animals), it is now Mayor Rodrigo Duterte’s turn to burn at the stake. A video recently surfaced showing Duterte crossing a line when he apparently joked about a rape and murder in 1989, commenting that the […]

Why Filipinos are not ready to fully embrace ‘gay rights’

Any discission on the future of the “gay rights” movement in the Philippines has to start with the teachings of Filipinos’ Christian faith — because, at the moment, religion is stubbornly baked into Filipinos’ sense of identity.

Why Jessica Zafra fails in her crude attempt to defend ‘LGBT rights’

Jessica Zafra, in her recent Interaksyon.com article Shut the f-ck up, idiots fails to elevate the debate. Sure, perhaps she might feel she is surrounded by idiots who hold supposedly bigoted views about the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community.

Vice Ganda’s vulgar behavior damages the image of the Philippines’ gay community

The lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community has been thrown in the spotlight after boxing champion and Philippine congressman Manny Pacquiao’s controversial statement saying they are worse than animals. While he received a lot of flak from people around the world and consequently got fired by his sponsor, shoe manufacturing giant Nike, Pacquiao also […]

The rock we keep smashing our heads with

So much for “Pinoy Pride”. The real surprise was that a lot of people were actually caught off-guard and were taken aback by what Manny Pacquiao said. You’d think people expected some suave, smooth-talking sophisto who can weasel himself out of a relatively difficult question on national TV. He may be a good boxer, but […]

The Local Media And Bobotantes Are ‘Worse Than Animals’ For Dooming Our Nation

Well, there goes the neighborhood ladies and gentlemen. It seems that everyone is having a heyday over Manny Pacquiao’s recent comments about his stance on same-sex marriage and his apparent insult towards the LGBT community by comparing them to animals and implying that they may well be worse. The LGBT community reacted accordingly and as one can […]
