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.

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.

“Pilipinas Got ‘Talent’ Not Pilipinas Got ‘Awa’!”: The Way It Should Be

The Philippines is one big Pabebe Nation!

The Pabebe Girls video is one of the most disturbing things I have ever seen in my life, at the same time, one of the most pointless. Not because I judged those girls as attention seekers as other Filipinos have (on the contrary, I didn’t and will never do so), but because the way I […]

Youth in the Philippines suffer from a lack of good role models

Michelle Alfonso and Janet Ricabo, the “Pabebe” Girls, rose to fame a couple of weeks back after a video they uploaded onto the Net, what else, went “viral”.
