Would you hire a man to care for your young kids? Would you hire a transvestite or transgender woman (i.e. a trans person who “identifies” as a woman)? Many parents would at best give the answer to those questions a second thought. Most likely their answers would be immediate and categorical.
See, certain “advocacies” quite simply will not make it across a hard line parents draw when it comes to the safety of their children. It would be the height of self righteousness for any leader of any “activist” cause to presume to even think of crossing that line.
There are many reasons behind parents’ personal decisions around who they would choose to entrust their children’s care to. Presume to know better than the thinking every parent applies into making that decision and you are asking for BIG trouble.
A discussion on whether or not to allow transvestites to use the female public toilets is raging in the Philippines after a transvestite felt discriminated upon when she was banned from using the women’s toilet in a mall.
Those who are agreeing with the ban citing that perverts and men pretending to be trans can abuse the privilege to access women’s facilities and sexually assault women and girls are being labelled “bigots”.
Hang on a minute…Filipinos are very tolerant of gays and lesbians. I never witnessed discrimination against cross dressers and transvestites when I was growing up. It’s always been very much accepted in Philippine society. But now some people are calling those oppose to sharing public toilets “bigot”.
When I say tolerant, I am comparing Philippine society to other counties like Russia and even in Australia where, just a couple of decades ago, some gays were beaten up and thrown off cliffs. I never heard of anything like that in the Philippines. Some are ridiculed but their lifestyle is tolerated.
What we are seeing now, however, is a disturbing trend where the beliefs of a small community of “activists” are pushed in on others and a growing sense of entitlement that is already infringing on other people’s right and safety. An example of this is the push to allow other genders to use the women’s public toilet. This only serves to highlight things in a negative way…
It may be a gay issue, but it’s patriarchal conceit once again, expecting women to be the ones to adjust without throwing a fuss
I personally did not mind sharing until I was TOLD to share and grin and bear it.
It’s as if they don’t need to ask others if it is ok to use what’s always been designated for “women”. Ironic, right? A camp to which so-called “feminists” belong telling women to stand aside. They just push for what they want because they think they are entitled to it. There is something wrong with this mentality. Where does it end? Do we always have to adjust?
As if making a long-winded statement in Tagalog will save his ass. It’s time to put Noynoy Aquino behind bars. He did a lot of damage by allowing his secretaries to run the show even when they were doing something illegal. This includes Butch Abad, Leila De Lima, and Dinky Soliman.
In their haste to organise a midnight deal in procuring Dengvaxia, for example, Noynoy and Abad did not anticipate any problems with the vaccine. They probably thought all going, well, no one would notice how fast they managed to secure a budget before stepping down from office.
Indeed, current President Rodrigo Duterte should use Noynoy’s usual excuse “done in good faith” every time the yellows criticise him. It’s good enough for them.

Keen observers have noted that a sensor wrapped around Kris Aquino’s arm in what many described as a publicity photo of her confined in what is supposedly a hospital in Singapore does not meet prescribed usage procedure.
The device appears to be a sphygmomanometer and instructions on the proper use of the cuff used to gather data for its readings are spelt out thus…
Place the cuff over the bare upper arm with the artery mark positioned directly over the brachial artery. The bottom edge of the cuff should be positioned approximately one inch (2-3 cm) above the antecubital fold. Wrap the end of the cuff not containing the bladder around the arm snugly and smoothly and engage adhesive strips. To verify a correct fit, check that the Index Line falls between the two Range Lines.
Note: bare upper arm.
The cuff in Aquino’s photo is clearly wrapped around the sleeve of what appears to be her hospital gown. Could this photo be staged? Was Aquino really in a Singapore hospital when this photo was taken?
Questions are only now starting to pour in as more and more Filipinos learn to apply a critical mind to the information they see on the Net.
