Manny Pacquiao’s loss is a wake-up call to telebasura-loving bobotante horde!

Credits to @KowloonDandy (via Twitter)|Pacman falls

There were MIXED feelings when Pacman lost to Aussie Welterweight boxer Jeff Horn.

If you think that being happy that Manny Pacquiao lost the fight (not in a Schadenfreude way) is ANTI-FILIPINO, then letting him fight again while being a senator is even more ANTI-FILIPINO thank you think.

Pacman did not fight for the country, but he fought for MONEY. Kaya, his charitable acts are plain sugarcoating, as compared to Angel Locsin’s. If Angel Locsin is charitable, then that’s because she has been doing it ever since!

“Kasalanan ni Jake Zyrus ito!”

NOPE, and what has Jake Z have to do with Flunkman’s loss?

In fact, Jake Z’s only mistake is to reveal his procedures and “beauty advice.” However, he wasn’t involved in Pacman’s loss.

WELCOME THE NEW FACES

Speaking of Jeff Horn, well, I’m not even a fan of boxing. Yet, why not welcome a fresh face to take someone’s place? Ultimong si Michael Phelps nga, nag-retiro sa swimming dahil tinalo siya ni number one fan niya, who is no other than Joseph Schooling. As you can all see, despite his victory, Schooling remains down-to-earth. Same with Phelps, despite being hounded by controversies before. Bukod ke PELPZ…

Walang sinabi si FLUNKMAN kay David Beckham, eh! Becks didn’t play association football for the money. He even stated that he only played for LA Galaxy to be “part of the team,” despite being celebrated as an international star when it comes to sports. He retired to give way to prominent footballers like Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo and Argentinian Lionel Messi. Buti pa si Beckham, dehins nagmo-monopolize ng talent. Heck, he does not monopolize what football/soccer is about.

So, we should [not necessarily] be happy about his loss?

Granted, we must not take pride in Pacman’s loss, because politics should not be included. However, Manny Pacquiao’s loss is a wake-up call to the bobotante horde, who still continues to patronize ultra-conservative politics. Sa mga bobotanteng mga fantards ni Flunkman na bumoto sa kanya sa eleksyon, it is not your idol’s loss, but YOURS. Una sa lahat, walang boxing ring sa senado. Also, Pacman vs. Trillanes is not something we should expect in the ring, but in the debate hall.

I still respect Pacman as a boxer, but not when it comes to politics. After all, Pacman is still the same bigoted hypocrite who is anti-RH Law, but is pro-death penalty (LOL, parehas sila ni Lucy Torres na TRAPO!). Also, he himself telling people that “why have divorce if there’s annulment” is simply put, pleasing the prude conservatives. Lastly, his reason for opposing same-sex marriage still irks the crowd until today. There’s no need for you to INSULT people to justify your claim.

No wonder, there are still some people who will be Schadenfreude for his loss (which I completely understand). However, there are still some people who will make fun of it, for example, Jim Paredes (EHEM!).

Well, sorry na lang si Pacquiao, wala na si Ka Ronnie Nathanielsz to the rescue, eh. It only means, what’s left for Pacman? Oh, he’d rather focus on being a senator, then I plead him, please don’t run for president. I tell you, the Philippines will be a laughing stock if he wins the presidency.

Komi’s advice to Jake Zyrus: Stay subtle

Dear Jake Zyrus,

We support you as a transgender man, but do you really have to ANNOUNCE your “tiis-pogi” procedures!?

A lot of trans people won’t reveal it until they have fulfilled their purpose

I said on my Facebook:

My friends knows a transman who never underwent that kind of procedure, and guess what? He is called, “Kuya,” despite his feminine voice.

Same goes with Aiza Seguerra, who calls himself a transman, but never underwent male hormone intakes, and would prefer wearing a binder or a minimizer bra.

Also, my friend knows a transwoman who is still considered as “gay,” but cross-dresses and seems more feminine and could be better-looking than a woman.

Lastly, we know someone who is a transwoman who still speaks like a gay person (hak hak!), but chose not to undergo sex change surgery (well DUH! Maintenance kaya ang sex change). Swerte niya, nagpa-sex change siya legally (it’s two things: Surgical sex change, OR legal sex change).

Ultimong si BB Gandanghari, hindi niya in-anunsyo na magiging transwoman na pala siya! She only announced it when she said, “Rustom Padilla is dead.” Well, she’s the only transwoman who still looks gay than trans.

Mismong si Angelina Mead King, she didn’t even have to undergo sex re-assignment surgery, attesting that she still retains her guy side. That way, she gave her wife Joey Mead King reasons to retain the marriage.

Also, the most popular ones like Rep. Geraldine Roman and Sass Rogando Sasot didn’t even reveal their procedures, unless they’re being asked about it. It was only Ka Geraldine who opened up her journey towards transitioning.

She was like saying, “I think, God won’t approve of discrimination against the LGBT.”

Difference between transgender vs. transsexual

SOURCE

Remember, Marlene Aguilar said, “The brain is the BIGGEST sex organ.”

I would consider the likes of Angelina Mead King as transgender, but the likes of Geraldine Roman would be called, transsexual.

So, I would call Aiza Seguerra as transgender, not transsexual.

Well, in this case, I consider Jake Zyrus as transgender. Kulang na lang, magpa-sex reassignment surgery siya, transsexual na ang itatawag ko sa kanya. That’s because Geraldine Roman is a true-blooded transsexual—she admitted, she went to the States to undergo sex re-assignment surgery.

And to dear Jake Z: Never reveal your procedures immediately

At least, BB Gandanghari didn’t reveal her surgeries, or yeah, procedures—she only lets people know that she is no longer RUSTOM PADILLA. She only made it official when she officially made it legal in the States (well, I’m not sure if she is a dual citizen of the Philippines and the USA).

Even though BB still looks like a tranny (lol yes, she still looks a cross-dressing gay), at least she just practiced self-love, and self-honesty. Remember, it’s always good to be honest, but not all truths are good to tell (for example: Bashing celebrities’ offsprings *ahem*).

Now answer me, my dear Jake Z: How come BB Gandanghari is still well-loved by the Filipino people, despite that she does not look like a transwoman? How come people respected her decision to become BB Gandanghari?

Also, how come Filipinos also accepted Caitlyn Jenner as Caitlyn?

Jake Z, it’s never wrong to be honest about your transitioning, but to reveal your procedures is something that might irritate the audiences. Granted, we may never please everybody, yet don’t announce what you’re going through. You might be the next Kim Kardashian, if ever.

In a world full of Donita Rose(s), be an Andi Manzano

NOTE: This is a collab entry with mspanythinginrandom.


L-R: Natalia Poklonskaya, and the Mongolian Cutie! Want good genes? Snag ’em!

Even alpha mestizo males have an advantage: Snag the best Sangley wife, without themselves knowing.

You see, if you marry someone like Dennis Padilla or Liezl Sicangco (Robin Padilla’s ex-wife), I tell you, JACKPOT KA. SWERTE KA. Because, kung sila na lang ang nagka-tuluyan, I tell you, they will make the best-looking babies. Malay ninyo, may isa pang Kristine Hermosa. May isa pang Song Hye-kyo, but that’s still the tip of the iceberg.

However, only people with ALPHA personality could snag someone like ‘em. Because, as you can all see, if ALPHA FEMALES like G Toengi, Marlene Aguilar, and Cheska Garcia are good in improving their genes (well, without them knowing), alpha males do the same thing. Look at Robin Padilla, he won the heart of Liezl Sicangco, and look at their daughters. Sobrang gaganda nila! However, things changed when Robin and Liezl have to part ways… and it’s great that Queenie Padilla handled it with grace.

Iba parin talaga kapag both sexes have ALPHA personalities. Without them knowing, they do snag a person who could give them the best genes. And yes, I’m here to defend and justify Andi Manzano for being smart enough to fall for GP Reyes. Well, sabihin nating mayabang si GP tsaka may attitude, at least may K naman siya kahit papano because believe it or not, he comes from an entrepreneurial family. If you say, entrepreneurial family, dun attracted ang mga East Asians (I repeat: EAST ASIANS). Sa Hong Kong nga tsaka Taiwan, uso na ngayon ang pagpapa-kasal sa mga CEO. To the Spanish mestizos and mestizas with simple-minded mentality: Don’t you realize, that Barbie Hsu has to give up her happiness (by of course, dapat sila na lang ni Jerry Yan at the first place), and marry a businessman, instead of pursuing Jerry Yan? Well, it seemed that Barbie proved us wrong, since she is happy with her married life.

So, dun na lang ako sa isang GP Reyes na kahit may “attitude” tsaka mayabang ang tindig niya, kahit papano SULIT ka dun (good genes tsaka stable income pa), kesa naman sa isang Eric Villarama na MALULUGI ka lang—from genes to income management. Kaya sila nag-hiwalay ni Donita Rose, ‘diba? Also, that “strict religious upbringing” might have been a factor to lead someone to “settle for less.”

If you cannot handle what we’re saying here, some “bad” but useful advice: Learn to discriminate.

It’s not bad to discriminate, for as long as you’re being honest to yourself. Kesa naman sa magiging plastic ka, masabi lang na hindi ka ma-arte, ika-kasal mo ang swangit, ta’s malulugi ka rin at the end of the day.

Look what exactly happened to Donita Rose’s career as MTV VJ: Nasira all throughout ever since she got married. Iyun ang sinasabi nating, isu-suong lang na masabi lang, nagpa-kasal na—as an ACHIEVEMENT than as a commitment. Naku, I tell you, kung nanay lang sana ni Donita si Annabelle Rama (partida, nag-aaway sila ni Ruffa, more like of a power-struggle), o si Mommy Divine Geronimo, malamang hindi na siya nagpa-kasal sa “one and only” niya. Well, that’s because as per Tita Bisaya and Mommy Divine’s standards (tingin lang namin, ah), Eric Villarama will never ever qualify. Baka mas qualified pa si Gary Estrada, eh!

Best advice from Shadow Angel:

Mahirap din pala pag low standard. Hindi totoo ang humanap ka ng pangit. Dahil marami na ngaun pangit daming babae. Feeling gwapo eh blah lang naman.

Like what we have said, eh LUGI ka parin kapag sa pangit ka nag-asawa. Kung maraming mga “paminta” sa mga gwaping, at least, if you don’t need the guy’s money, always look for GOOD GENES. Dun nagkamali ang mga Kastilang mestizo’t mestizang may simple-minded mentality (lalo pa ang mga galing probinsya). As a matter of fact, alpha Latino mestizos snag the Chinays, without themselves knowing. Iba parin ang ALPHA personality. Also, wala kang karapatang maging prangka na nakaka-sakit ng damdamin kapag: Mababa ang standards mo, pangit pa ang taste mo, at ang pinaka-matindi: Settling for less.

In short, you have NO RIGHT to be blunt if you don’t WALK YOUR TALK.

Lastly, ipagmamayabang mo pa ang mestizo looks mo, eh wala namang nagmana sa’yo (result of marrying someone with native, or “Melai” looks). Iyan ang kalait-lait: No wonder, Donita Rose deserves to be bashed. She would have convinced Gary Estrada to convert to Born Again, but no. Donita Rose, essentially, reminds us of Ge’s* half-Spanish great-grandmother who chose to marry a poor native instead of her rich Spanish mestizo suitor. Maganda na nga sana ang buhay niya sa Spanish mestizo, but how the hell did she chose for a poor butini? Simple: BOBO SIYA.

Also, Ge even said that two of her cousins inherited that kind of stupid. Wow, and their side pa naman finds Maja Salvador and Kate Hudson pretty? Like, WTF!? Mapapa-tambling ka lang sa poor and cheap taste nila (Maja and Kate, seriously? Hindi sila attractive sa Japan o sa Korea, but siguro sa mga European countries, attractive sila). Kung sino pa naman sa side nila na maganda sana ang mukha tsaka may angking talino, minalasan naman ng LACK OF WISDOM. After all, having a “loser” or “defeatist” mentality won’t bring you places. Masabi lang na “maka-masa” kayo’t isinusuka ninyo ang mga alta sociedad, it does not make sense.

Kung habol niyo lang eh “CURVES,” then you must be kidding me. If you see some Spanish mestizo with a Melai-looking partner, ask him (with pun intended): “Mahilig ka ba sa hipon, señor?”

We previously quoted The Grumpy Professor through our blog entry. We quoted him,

East Asian is second (most superior race) next to Caucasian. Harsh reality in the Filipino culture.

I also wonder why they HATE the Chinoys. Pangit daw, and I was told, tanong daw sa kanya, “Bakit karamihan sa mga Korean na artista, pangit?”

Like, WHAT!? Ano pala tingin niyo kay Melai, o sa pamilyang Binay, magaganda!? Gwapo!? HUWAG AKO! Hindi pang-Vogue ang hitsura ng mga “exotic” na tipo ng foreynjer! Wala akong nakikitang mga balugang aliping naging covergirl ng VOGUE, HARPER’S BAZAAR, tsaka ELLE. Eh, iyung mga Korean na artista, siyempre featured na iyan sila sa mga TOP international fashion magazines na iyan. Remember, TOP. INTERNATIONAL. For us, it’s SOMETHING. Eh iyung mga tipo pa naman ng mga foreynjer, hindi iyan nagiging covergirl ng VOGUE, eh!

At heto pa tandaan ninyo: Bawal pa naman sa mga East Asians ang loser mentality. Notice that female leads in East Asian dramas are really feisty, as compared to telebasura female leads, na pa-victim card lang ang alam. Itanong niyo lang ho si Sean Akizuki, ang may-akda ng Making it (more) Fun in the Philippines.

(*Ge is not her real name. Ka-tropa namin iyan!)

Also from sunday01, regarding “religion as the opium of the masses”:

Donita coming from a very strict born again christian background made sure na same religion din ang mapapangasawa. That was her number one requirement, kaya dati kahit sobrang inlove in Gary Estrada sa kanya pero dahil Hindi sila same religion eh di sila magkasundo. Ilang beses pa ang mga suicide attempts dati in Gary dahil ke Donita. She was at the peaked of her career every week me bago siyang commercial tapos MTV VJ pa. Parang umuuwi Lang siya dati para magshoot ng commercial. Tapos when she got married biglang nanamlay ang career nila then she got pregnant lalong nawala ang mga endorsements. Para di rin siya masyado nakapag-invest pano dati puro shopping lang ginagawa niya mga signature brands.
I guess they really tried to make it work for them to last 12 years pero having the same religion and being a God fearing man are not just the things needed to be together for the rest of your lives.

See how religion can RUIN your chances to get married? Granted, call us narrow-minded and ignorant, but as you can all see, Donita FAILED to think out of the box. Sus! Buti pa nga si G Toengi, she thought outside the box. And look at G right now, despite being a “Yellow Yankee” for supporting the Yellow Oligarchs, at least her family life is stable.

Donita Rose, after all, should not be the role model of young girls and aspiring wives. Many of my relatives in the Spanish side justify that “mabait” daw si Eric Villarama kaya na-in love si Donita, but ask Annabelle Rama or Mommy Divine Geronimo. To be like Donita Rose is simply put, similar to a licensed professional (doctor, lawyer, engineer, accountant) who chose to vote for Manny Pacquiao for senator, kesyo mabait daw, hindi corrupt, tsaka generous sa mga mahihirap, tapos kapag tinawag na “bobotante,” magagalit, defensive na kaagad, tsaka ipagmamayabang na nila na licensed professional sila.

Meanwhile, Andi Manzano is similar to a licensed professional who voted for Raffy Alunan, Dick Gordon, Isko Moreno, and Lorna Kapunan for senator. Ganun lang ka-simple ang logic.

Regarding Donita, nalaos nga siya mula nagpa kasal siya to think she was at the height of her career and madaming pumipigil sakanya huwag magpakasal muna dahil sayang nga ang opportunity. Dun nga lang siya nagbloom sa pagvi VJ niya tapos nag give up agad kung kelan kasikatan niya.

Kung ganon pala, eh mas matinag pala si Namie Amuro. As you can all see, Namie was once over-shadowed by Ayumi Hamasaki and Kumi Koda, but like mga 2010-ish, dun na bumangon ulit si Namie. Believe it or not, nung at the height of her prime pa ang kasikatan ni Namie Amuro, bigla-bigla na lang nag-announce na magpapa-kasal na sila ni Masaharu “Sam” Maruyama dahil na-buntis si Namie (indeed, that was a shotgun wedding). Worse, after nanganak si Namie, a year later, nabalitaang pinaslang ang nanay niya sa Okinawa. Aside from that, mina-mata mata pa siya ng pamilya ni Sam, kaya nag-divorce sila, and it was finalized in 2002.

Well, Namie’s situation was far worse than Donita Rose’s. In fact, imagine, you will only get married because of pregnancy out of wedlock, and imagine your mother was killed by an in-law, and your marriage will only end up in divorce? Eh sa Japan pa naman, joint custody ENDS when a couple divorces, kaya mas mahirap maging magulang sa Japan, eh. Turns out, Namie gave the custody of her son to Sam, because she realized, motherhood isn’t meant for her. Pa-tattoo tattoo pa ng pangalan ng anak niya sa kaliwang braso niya, pati memorial ng mama niya, turns out hindi niya kayang panindigan ang mga naka-turok na tinta sa balat niya. In fact, she only had tattoos to rebel against her management (in Japan, tattoos are often associated with the yakuza). Also, we find her tattoos on her left arm ugly and drab, so yeah, it’s great that she lasered it off (buti naman!).

Oh, well. At least, now I’m telling you that the GirlTalkers are right: They may not openly admit it, but in a world full of Donita Roses, be an Andi Manzano.

Heto ang sabi sa GirlTalk:

yang gp reyes minessage ng cousin ko na wag sana sya magmura dahil wife and kid nya super wholesome. cousin ko tuloy namura. yabang nitong lalaking to.

Another one:

^i used to follow him too then later na realize ko, medyo mayabang siya.

So what, kung mayabang si GP Reyes? Jusko, kung ayaw niyo pala sa alpha male, mas mahirap maging FEMINAZI, anoh! In fact, feminazis ask for equality, but they demand for more. In other words, they play the victim card!

Also, GP already expressed his disdain towards celebrity baby bashers.

In fact, you may find GP as arrogant as Carlos Celdran, yet, kung tutuusin, mas may substance parin si GP, kesa kay Kaloy. Kaloy is purely doing fashion statements. Walang consistency. Eh, kunwaring loyalista’t love na love ang mga Marcos, ngunit nung nag-“ELOPE” na siya to endorsing Mar Roxas and Leni Robredo sa eleskyon, nawala ang pagiging “loyalista” niya kuno. It means, Kaloy is NOTHING but a fraud! Panindigan niya sa tapat na pamamaraan na elitista talaga siya. Kung elitista ang mga Marcos, hindi na nila dinadala iyun, kesa naman sa karibal nilang dinastiya, lakas makapag-victim card, ngunit worse than a dictator din pala ang asta. :p

At least, before Andi got married to GP, pinagnanasaan na siya ng mga tiga-PinoyExchange.

the_shot even said:

mukhang katulong sina ann curtis at rhian ramos pag tumabi kay andi!

Elitista man ang statement niya, ngunit siyempre, sino bang hindi mama-mangha sa angking ganda ni Andi M.? Of course, because of her beauty, siyempre, diyan niya nakuha ang loob ni GP, ‘di ba?

Ibig sabihin nun, Luis Manzano, her cousin, is a good match-maker, after all!

According to PhilStar:

GP had always found her attractive but had never met her so at first he attempted to go the traditional route by going through a “bridge”:  Andi’s cousin Lucky, who promptly called her up and said, “Hey, my friend GP has a crush on you, can I give him your number?” Understandably Andi refused because she didn’t even know who GP was at the time.

…and the rest is all history.

Ngayon, alam niyo na kung bakit ganyan ang pamagat ng aming pahayag.

Komikado Reacts: Antonio Contreras’s post, “POWERLESSNESS IN POWER”

I have admired the LEGENDARY professor of Political Science, Dr. Antonio P. Contreras.

YES, that’s him in the photo. He looks like this handsome-looking professor of International Studies. HAHA.

Komikado Reacts: Powerlessness in Power by Antonio P. Contreras

Many people would simply die coveting a post perceived to be loaded with power and privilege. The goal of landing in such a post has propelled many to suppress their natural selves and subordinate their being to the templates of the usual, acceptable and “normal.” This produces so much pretension and niceness, that one so mean could project a smiling face, and one so arrogant could suppress the smirk to kowtow to the wishes of the appointing gods. The autonomy that is vested in human subjects to chart for them their identities have to take a backseat if only to win approval, a mere brownie point when the name of the game is actually the big league, a seat in the front of the CEOs car reserved for bodyguards, a chance to carry the umbrella of the boss, or even the rare privilege of escorting the spouse while doing her shopping, or chaperone their bratty kids as they play in a theme park.

People have always said that it is lonely at the top. You may have all the money and the power, but both could not buy you true happiness, as the cliché goes. People are looking up to you perched in your office up there, but the sad part of it is that many of them are doing so not in admiration or awe but maliciously anticipating, or even betting, when you are going to fall, and how, and how fast, and how hard.

My being Dean for four years in my College taught me a lesson about being in power. While some would literally die, and beg, to get such a plum post, and while I am always thankful of the opportunity such post gave me to serve others, and the lessons I learned from such experience that contributed to my being a better person, I can categorically state, as I have said it on many occasions, that those four years were also the most disempowering years of my life.

I gained weight. This is what happens when physical activity yields to mental activity, and where endless meetings do not only produce stress that could cause hunger, but also provide opportunities to eat and eat and eat while seated to a point that the only muscle in the body that gets a hefty work-out is the mouth. Hectic schedules ruin gym plans, and mental stress drains so much energy that sleep and food become better alternatives than pumping weights or doing the treadmill.

And the list does not end there.

I also was forced to be more restricted in my fashion—the boring conventional type of long-sleeved shirts and trousers in black, blue and grey. My earrings had to go which caused my ear piercing to close. I could not have my tattoos, which I have had dreamed to have, lest I could be seen as improperly adorned. I was forced to behave according to protocol. Well, at least, most of the time. I could not just say things I wanted to say even if I was dying to. I literally forced myself to keep quiet and be poker-faced when under ordinary times I would have told off someone saying something stupid as that, stupid.

But the most stressful of it all was when I began to sense that a part of me was already acquiring the habitus, and the consciousness of a conservative administrator, when I began to dislike the behaviour of subordinates who were assertive of their rights, and were critical of some of my decisions, things which I would have done too had I been in their shoes. I was horrified when I realized I was turning into something I actually hated.

The irony is simply in being someone with a position of power and privilege, where you earn the badge of being called a “sir” and be treated like a little king, but you are in fact a slave of protocol, conventions and mission and vision statements you may not like but you have to live by. This has severe consequences on one’s identity. It was so palpable that when I stepped down as Dean, the very first thing I did was to go back to the gym and liberate myself from the fat I accumulated from endless eating while in stressful meetings. And I decided to wear my earrings again. And I finally got my tattoo, not only one, but two of them. And now, I am able to call a stupid idea for what it is—stupid—with the frankness that only a liberated, blue-blooded iconoclast like me could muster. I was so glad to feel the new sense of power that resulted from being out of power. I was back to my real me.

Recently, I was being considered for a government post. I thought maybe it is about time to again test the waters of being “disempowered” as a price to pay if only to serve our people. I was willing to again remove my earrings, and was training myself to wear long-sleeved shirts to hide my tattoos. I was ready again to gain some weight. In fact, I was already practicing becoming “nice” when I began to temper my commentaries in social media in preparation for the larger restraint I have to endure to gag myself, submit to the script of the establishment, and be silent even if it is about an idea I simply find stupid.

Fortunately, some people in the corridors of power were so helpful enough to prevent me from getting such appointment. I was told that I am not liked. Far from being depressed, I was so relieved. There is no word of gratefulness I could use to thank enough whoever that person was for saving me from the punishment of being once again in a cage just to be powerful.

What I think about Antonio Contreras is that, he does not pretend to be someone else. He is true to himself–he’s the bald guy who has ear piercings and peaceful tattoos that is unlikely to be worn by a professor, who is deemed as formal, strict in fashion, and of course, conservative.

NOPE. He ain’t your typical conservative, old-timer professor. He’s the guy version of Marlene Aguilar–fearless, bold, and thinks outside the box of tradition.

Una namin siyang nakilala bilang isang kolumnista sa GMA website. Siya nga iyung nagsulat ukol sa mga “Insecure Intellectual Elites,” bilang reaksyon niya sa mga all-knowing, self-righteous bashers ni Harvey Campos, isang estudyanteng nagtanong ng napaka-kontrobersyal na tanong sa yumaong pinuno ng Singapore na si Lee Kuan Yew. Siyempre, iniwasang sagutin ni Angkong LKY ang tanong, dahil kultura naman kasi ng Singapura ay, nananatiling pribado ang usapang pamilya.

Iyung mga “Insecured Intellectual Elites” na tinutukoy ni Antonio Contreras ay hindi lang iyung mga bashers ni Harvey Campos. Isama ko na rin iyung mga elitistang manunulat ng GetRealPhilippines.com, tsaka ‘yung mga shittakaburi netizens ng GirlTalk at saka ang grupo sa FB na, “Filipino Freethinkers [Updates and Announcements].” Hindi ko na rin palalampasin ang mga elitistang social climber na readers ng Fashion Pulis (FP-tards).

I don’t like the way the bashers judged heavily on Harvey Campos. Ihinahalintulad pa nila si Harvey kay Ricky Lo kung saan, stupid daw ang mga tanong nila, when in fact, they’re being bold and fearless at the same time.

I think these “ELITISTA” netizens are the ones who angered MSP, thus, when she writes anything about things related to the elitists, she would often bash them.

Here’s another criticism by megamabushii:

GT_prangkahan

Of course, the elitists will never understand when and how to use the concept of “cultural relativism.” Oh, sa mga apologists ni Anne Has-been-thaway ditey, her rudeness translated to her being a has-been. Walang nag-reply sa prangkahan ni megamabushii ay dahil, alam nilang guilty sila na dapat hindi lang sana nila hinusgahan si Ricky Lo.

Oh… marami talagang Kapamilya-twats sa GirlTalk, kaya puro kuda sila pagdating kay Ricky Lo, at ang kapal pa, huh! They started this thread, “Overrated Hosts,” and they glorify Winnie Monsod!

I respect Winnie Monsod but not anymore.

These GirlTalkers have such abominably poor and cheap taste! Most of them won’t vote for BBM but they’re YES to Leni.

Iba paring maging SHIT na MALAGKIT ang mga elitista, ano?

Makes sense?

It is a shame that many of these elitistas are not enlightened enough! They’re mostly scums who pretend to be pa-sosyal, when in fact, their manners remind me of people settling in the squatters’ area.

Damn!

The ruling class of the Philippines ISOLATE themselves rather than integrating with the common good

It’s sad but true–most of our Chinese and Spanish ruling elites do NOT integrate themselves in the Filipino culture–kesyo daw BADUY, jologs, o cheap, they will never understand the essence of being a Filipino if they continue to rule the country yet isolate themselves rather than integrating.

These elites do not only lack a sense of patriotism, they also lack a sense of environmentalism–granted, you do fucking business for fucking profit, but that doesn’t mean you have to exploit people per se. If you’re an oligarch, you have to have a sense of BOTH patriotism and environmentalism. Having NO sense of patriotism only means that you have an identity crisis yourself.

And so the fiasco begins…

The cocky know-it-alls (shittakaburi) and intellectual elitists do not know how it is to be an intellectual being. Male or female, they justify the crappy services of Globe (I think Smart Mobile is waaaaay better on Internet–it may be unfriendly towards people who text and call a lot, but it won’t fail you on Internet services) simply because telco companies do shit for profit, which is not right–after all, the customer knows best.

And please don’t get me started with the “lesser evil” shit, when it comes to politics. You will choose PNoy over Binay!? How stupid.

Yeah, Binay is plastic in real life (he is effing conceited, actually), yet you cannot question his efforts to help the people–he has done a lot of things in the Philippines, even though he and his family are a bunch of scums. Tony-sensei (how I call Prof. Contreras) ended up being an apologist of Binay.

Well, I won’t mind Binay despite being pretentious and a prima donna in real life–thing is, he has to prove that he shouldn’t do credit-grabbing (seriously, credit-grabbing is effing sickening!!!). In some aspects, Binay is good–yet we seem to overlook it.

And please take note that Binay is a Cory appointee.

Being plastic simply because you’re a Dean is really–uhm, disheartening. Oh, and you have to be “conservative” like the rest of the people who are “Slaves of their Boxes.”

Being a Slave of the Box: NOT a Cool Thing–AT ALL

We wouldn’t identify Tony-sensei if he has no tattoos, no piercings, and if he does not shave his head. Of course, he’s the type of guy you would still like to introduce to your parents–even though he shaved his head and got tattoos on his body. Right?

I know some people who still go to church, who sport peaceful tattoos. Oh, so don’t tell me that Leviticus shit from the Bible–Manny Pacquiao himself has tattoos on his body, yet he has the nerve to become a pastor. Abnormal lang, diba?

Pac_asia01

HAHAHA… I think Fuckman did have the nerve to become a “Christian,” yet all thanks to Jasmine Curtis-Smith, she pinpointed his mistake–through the Leviticus verse prohibiting tattoos.

See? That is why the likes of Carlos Celdran and Marlene Aguilar expressed their anger towards Fuckman.

Unfortunately, Manny himself is a Slave of the Box. Buti pa nga ang mga kagaya ni Floyd Jr., eh–Floyd may have been a woman-beater and a scum all his life, yet he does know how to keep cool–have you ever watched the video of his dad being “pabida” to Erik Morales? Senyor Erik cannot say a thing or two, since Floyd Sr. was clogging him verbally. Right?

No wonder Floyd Jr. is often disgruntled on TV.

Thank goodness he still managed to support marginalized people.

Meanwhile, Manny does not have that. Having lots of money, after all, cannot buy intellectualism. You may argue with me that money can buy a lot of books, however, it’s always good to think outside the box of tradition. Manny thinks that hurting the marginalized sector will make him more superior simply because he has lots of money–well, simply put, Manny is still a low-class scum.

YES, he is a low-class scum for many reasons.

I would expect him to be open-minded, out-of-the-box thinker, and at the same time, liberal. How many times do I have to tell you that he visited the goddamn States of America all throughout his life, and yet, he still remained bigoted.

In the States, bigotry is a mortal sin!

Well, it’s not only Pacman who suffers from this kind of syndrome–even those Filipinos who became American citizens are still far from being open-minded, tolerant, out-of-the-box thinkers and most of all, liberal–I’m pertaining to the Generation-X Pinoy promdis who still think like a provincial local in the Philippines: Too religious, slave of the box, and lacks an equal amount of imagination within them.

Yeah, that’s Filipino culture 101 to you!

I think the Philippines should learn from Tony-sensei

We need more legit intellectuals like Antonio P. Contreras, Marlene Aguilar, and Carlos Celdran. They think outside the box, and they are the true sources of Pinoy pride–why is that many Filipinos aren’t proud of them?

To be honest, many people would rather idolize Kris Aquino, Vice Ganda, Boy Abunda, and a lot of showbiz people who are not worthy to become “Pinoy pride.” I won’t even spare Pacquiao, either!

So ano say niyo? Leave your comments in the comment section and please, no rude comments. Many thanks!

Komikado Reacts: Long Discussion on a Blog Entry

#MSPsays: Nagbago ang impression ko nung nakita ko si Maja Salvador sa personal. Tahimik lang siya kumpara doon sa pabidang plain Jane na si Bela Padilla (seriously, I am never a fan of Bela Padilla at all–I find Bea Alonzo better-looking than her, and I find Glaiza De Castro greater than her).

Buti pa nga si Majarot, infairness, malaki ang pinagbago niya–ngunit speaking of her personality, she’s really boring naman talaga.

However, infairness, hindi siya kasing-boring ni Sarah Lahbati.

Real Talk: Kim Chiu is the bad influence!

Let me be very honest with you, guys. Kim Chiu is the BAD INFLUENCE, not Maja. Proof? Hindi naman ungas si Xian Lim before the Bicol fiasco (which made Lola Joey extremely disgruntled–goodvibes pa iyun sa personal, ah!).

I think Gerald distanced himself from Kim Chiu is because, he knew she had a bad attitude. Of course, that is natural for person who has his own sense of pride.

Hindi lang si Maja Blanque ang nabiktima ng pagiging ungasis niya (Kim). I think, other people who are associated with Kim Chiu became shit people–buti na lang si Sarah Geronimo, hindi nagpadala sa pagiging ungasis ni Kim Chiu. Kung snobbish man si SG sa personal, lemme tell you that SG is like any other artist who has their own inner crisis issues. Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.

Iyung mga artists na associated with Marian Rivera, nagiging ungas din ba at the end? Of course not, since Marian is a good example and a good influence to the youth. Etchos lang ang pagpapa-laglag niya, dahil looking at her naman, she is conservative at heart–have you ever heard of Marian fucking with a lot of TV honchos at GMA?

The elitistang twatards and other dumbed-down people should STOP believing that Kim Chiu is nice in person (when in fact, she is maldita in person! Lakas pang maka-negatiba), and that Marian is a “witch.” Speaking of Marian, many twats believe that she’s a man-stealer, a homewrecker, when in fact, Karylle stole Dingdong from Antoinette Taus.

When in fact, Dingdong pursued Marian because he saw the good values in her!

Siyempre, wala paring “forever” kay Kim Chiu–time will pass, and Xian will leave her for good. I believe that Xian only became a scum when he became “on” with Kim Chiu (when in fact, gamitan lang iyan!). Buti pa nga si Marian, may forever, eh!

White Skin =/= Aristocratic Features

I often get uncalled for comments such as “Maputi ka lang.”, “Hindi naman katangusan ang ilong”, etc… back home (kahit hindi naman ako nakikipagpagandahan) because despite my pasty skin, I don’t have the typical mixed blood features (which is fine kasi I’m 100% Pinay naman). Kiber. Marami lang talagang laitera sa’tin.

— Prunella of GirlTalk

MARAMING GANYAN SA PINAS!

Well, sabi ng iba, sa dark-skinned mo pa makikita ang aristocratic features. Truth is, you won’t be called a mestiza simply because your skin is fair–you’ll be called one if your features are like those who live in the Western parts of the world: The Middle East, South Asia, Central Asia, Eurasia and the rest of Europe.

Kalokohan ang magsasabing mestiza ang isang taong maputi ang balat pero ang features naman, pang-alipin!

Hindi ba pwedeng, chinita lang!?

GetRealPhilippines NAILZ it!

I absolutely love this statement from GRP (their article on 20 excuses Filipinos justify for the rampant poverty shit… ek ek):

18. We are poor because we are using English which is not our native language. Look at Japan, they use their native language that’s why they are rich.

Rebuttal:

Yeah, right…

(1) Most Singaporeans do not natively speak English as their first language and instead, have mother tongues like Hokkien, Teochew, Hainanese, Henghwa, Hokchew, Cantonese, Hakka, Malay, Javanese, Baweanese, Tamil, Malayalee, Punjabi, Hindi, Urdu, or others.

Yet they are educated primarily in English as that is the official medium of instruction. And lo and behold: Singapore is one of the richest countries in the world, and in 2010’s IMF ranking for GDP per Capita has surpassed Japan as being the richest East Asian country.

(2) Ireland’s native and national language is Gaeilge, aka “Irish Gaelic.” But in fact, their educational system uses English as the medium of instruction. And Ireland is number 12 in the IMF’s 2010 GDP per Capita top ranking.

(3) Luxembourg’s native language is Letzeburgesch, classified as a dialect of Low German that is somewhat similar to Flemish and Dutch, yet Luxembourg’s primary medium of instruction is French with German acting as a second official language. Both French and German are technically foreign to Luxembourg.

Nevertheless, Luxembourg has ranked as number 1 in the IMF GDP per Capita ranking, and is therefore the country with the highest per capita income in the world for both the 2009 and 2010 data sets. Moreover Luxembourg is also number one in the World Bank’s 2009 GDP per Capita ranking.

(4) India has so many different native or “mother” languages for its extremely diverse population. English, however, serves as its primary official working language especially in business and education. One of India’s biggest advantages has been its reliance on its English-proficient white-collar sector in providing outsourcing services to the developed world. This was its main ticket to becoming one of the world’s emerging economies.

Quite obviously, the whole idea that using one’s native language as a medium of instruction or official language determines success and that not using one’s native language impoverishes a country is clearly absurd.

In fact, despite Singapore’s use of the English language as its major medium of instruction despite the multiple ethnicities present in Singapore who have their own native languages, Singaporean students’ test scores are among the highest in the world.

Speaking of Japan, most Filipinos who love to use Japan as that poster-boy of “native-language use” are totally ignorant of the fact that during the Meiji Restoration, it was extremely common for élite Japanese university students studying some of the most technically-challenging courses in the Natural Sciences, Engineering, Medicine, and even Music, International Diplomacy and others to actually make use of textbooks in German, English, or French, (for some music majors, Italian) and were instructed by foreign professors from Germany, Austria, Britain, the USA, or France. This tendency actually even continued until long after the Meiji Restoration.

So, Imma quote thiz.

The last paragraph? I agree. As a matter of fact, Japanese people learn the language of a foreign country when they reside there. And besides, Japan’s culture is homgenous that’s why there’s NO FREAKING POINT OR SENSE in calling it the official poster-boy of using the native language as medium of instruction. Masato Sakai learned Chinese in uni. Oh, and please take note of Hiroyuki Sanada, Rinko Kikuchi and Masi Oka, plus Shin Koyamada–they won’t make it to the Hollywood scene without learning English. Right!?

And Kentaro Matsuo, the French-speaking Asian dude in Rush Hour 3? I dunno if he’s a French-born Japanese guy?

At siyanga pala, English should be the unifying language of the Philippines. In India, English is the unifying language. Granted, mabigat ang Indian accent ng mga Indiano, yet they make it to a point to maximize their English communication capabilities.

I mean, RESPETO naman sa mga hindi Katagalugan, gaya ng mga Bisaya. Granted, it’s never a bad thing to learn English–I believe it makes sense when we score high in exams. As a matter of fact, ang suliranin lang ng mga Pinoy is that, they become grammar Nazis for invalid reasons. Amaryt!?

Japanese culture is unique on its own–but TBH it isn’t totally and extremely unique kontra sa mga hinala niyo!

MSP says: Honestly speaking, Japanese culture is mostly based on their indigenous culture (Ryukyuan and Ainu–aka the Jomon racial group) plus the Han Chinese culture adopted from the Tang Dynasty. No wonder, elements of Min Nan and Cantonese are embedded in their language. The old, original Japanese terms? They were replaced by Chinese influence, thus, the Hanzi characters were borrowed, and then adopted, thus having their own version, what they call as “Kanji.”

The original inhabitants of Japan had unique features (kindly refer to Ken Hirai, Isamu Shimoji and the ever-famous Hiroshi Abe)–a mixture of South Asian and white European. Don’t get me wrong, that’s how I perceive it. Eventually, their genes were mixed by the Yayois (the Koreans, or any Yellow-raced group of people from the Mongolic area) later on, thus having this so-called “Yamato” Japanese race.

However, the “Yamato” race isn’t really “pure.” Racial purity is after all, a mindset.

Tingnan niyo kaya sina Yui Aragaki, Yukie Nakama–bago sila sumikat. Mapuputi ba talaga sila dati pa? All I could think of a naturally-fair Japanese actress would be Miho Kanno-Sakai. Kyoka Suzuki wasn’t paper-white during her younger years. So before you conclude that if you’re Japanese = white skin, think of the Japanese actresses before they became famous. Gakky wasn’t fair-skinned at all. Same with Yukie Nakama. May iba silang version ng gluta, kaya sila mapuputi ngayon. Aya Ueto wasn’t fair at the first place. Oh, isama na rin ang mga ibang artista sa Japan na halatang nagpaputi lang nung nakatungtong sila ng Tokyo.

In this case, hindi naman gaano homogeneous ang lahi ng mga Hapones. The fair-skinned Japanese, you actually see them in northern parts of Japan. So don’t think that Philippines is alone when it comes to obsession with skin whitening. I could attest to that!

Ang mga naturally-fair talaga, usually they come from northern Japan.

I simply disagree with the fact that Japanese culture is totally unique. Well, unique naman in a sense that they identify themselves with this category, but that doesn’t mean that their identity is isolated. In fact, they’re also known for being more Westernized than Singapore (IMO mas Asian parin at mas conservative ang SG in some way–to think it is multicultural; HK is far more “liberated” and Westernized).

Japanese culture is also conservative, but speaking of love and relationships, they’re quite liberal. Concept of virginity? Meh, that’s too old-school for them. In fact, shotgun weddings are common among couples whose wives were pregnant before marriage, tapos divorce kapag may something wrong… ayun. Pakitanong kay Namie Amuro o Ryoko Hirosue. Hindi ko sigurado kay Rosa Kato. Maybe relationships in Japan don’t work like Posh and Becks (oh yes, British culture is very conservative when it comes to family and marriage–to think it’s a Western culture). But not all–in fact, there are lots of Japanese men who marry late. Hiroshi Abe and Masato Sakai are primary examples. No wonder, nakipag-break si Miho Kanno kay Goro Inagaki dahil si Inagaki, he had a bad reputation before Kanno met Sakai. Then BOOM, Sakai and Kanno married.

No wonder, you see me very excited when Kanno Miho gave birth to their son; like how I rejoice when Marian Rivera gave birth to Baby Zia.

That’s it!
