Glitches and Guts

yesterday’s not a good day. mainit ulo ko sa technical difficulties na pinagdaanan ni Adele sa katatapos lang na Grammys. but in the spirit of objectivity, i admit that for me, it wasn’t all about the mic the fell into the piano that made her sounded off-tune and flat. medyo may konting “tsismis” sa ilang nota sa huli.
i don’t know if it is emotional-induced tone or talagang guttural something na nahirapan siya.
anyways, panuorin nyo nalang dito if you like.

at habang hindi pa ko nakakamove on sa performance na yun, nakita ko sa Twitter ang Manny Pacquiao sa Philippines Trend. nacurious ako so i followed the retweets and conversation. and.... shala!



actually, nung napanuod ko ito, sa maniwala kayo o hindi natawa ako. like literally hahaha ganyan.
chos.
ewan ko. hindi naman ako nagalit or whatever.
although yes, it’s no doubt hitting below the belt.

yung iba jinujustify pa na kexot he did not compare LGBT people to animals. mas masahol pa daw. or yung same-sex marriage daw ang mas masahol at hindi yung LGBT.

the fuck is the logic? the choice of words are there and semantics tells us all.
isn’t “mas” “higit” (more, much) a comparative degree to some sort of?

the "acts" is what make us gay.
then how can you say you only condemn the "acts" and not the "gay"?
isn't that a double-standard?

ang inisip ko, magsosorry siya at ireretract niya soon ang sinabi niya.
true enough, he apologized after he was bombarded by criticisms.
i understand. we all make mistakes. to err is human to forgive is divine.
he probably is so passionate about living in a Christian life that when ask something about an issue which is against his virtue thus, his opinion came out.
well, everyone is entitled to express his opinion. nagkataon na public figure si Manny kaya sana naging careful siya sa pagbibitaw ng opinion.
any elected officials should know this by heart. you should not give opinion based on your own preference and belief. secularism, the Constitution has it.

totoo naman. Manny on the lighter side is admirable to have the balls to express his point of view and stand by his principles. but not in a degrading way.
and let’s face it people. Manny needs all the votes he could possibly get.
sa mundo ng politika, napakahalaga ang maging safe. i’m not saying na talikuran ang pinaniniwalaan mo, but rather, be on the “safe side” so that no one will get hurt and offended.
i felt sorry for Manny. i feel like he was misguided and misinformed about the issue on same-sex marriage. i mean the very basic issue.

si Manny napalampas ko. pero yung ibang mga nasa friendlist ko sa facebook na mega post din ng opinion na kexot tama lang daw yung sinabi ni Manny, blah blah blah, etc, etc.
yung isa nag post pa ng napakahaba. yung bang pang press release na akala mo public figure din siya na naghihintay ang madla ng sasabihin niya about sa isyu. may pagtataray at disclaimer. at ang effort ng pagkaka compose. papunta na sa decree ganyan.
nakakaloka! ang daming likes!
dun ako nairita sa likes. chos!

so ako naman, bilang kasapi ng LGBT, i cannot allow pass the issue without answering her in a subtle way.
hindi dahil nainggit lang ako sa dami ng likes niya ha! hahaha
i mean, kailangan marinig din ang side namin. and for everyone's awareness nadin.
but instead of commenting to her post, nagpost nalang ako ng sa akin.

and here’s what i said.

"when someone injects "religion" and "belief" in a simply supposedly civil matters, that starts the problem. grow up people.
the world is not own by Christianity alone. no religion could ever claim it. not in this lifetime."

the last time i check, the LGBT community is fighting for their right to union under the STATE and not under the CHURCH.
never did i recall we ask permission to the latter. or pardon me, has anything changed since then?
i'm sorry, i wasn't informed.
at any rate,given the rationalization presented in the first statement, it simply means union governed by STATUTES and not by the holy matrimony of the Church.
i surmise people are well-educated. google can testify that no individual on earth is a fool as long as he has a decent internet connection.
need i further explain the separation concept between the two?

sorry for jumping in the bandwagon. i'm not the type of netizen who frequent opinions on facebook.
while i respect variances in opinions, the real issue must be pointed out.
bigotry and ignorance is a sickness. don't get infected.

so there.

i felt a sigh of relief when i got likes.
at least, i know may nakaintindi kahit hindi ganun karami.  ang importante, may nakaunawa.

  1. Sumakit yung ulo ko sa dulo ng iyong post. Umingles eh! Lol.

    Kahit nagkamali ng kaunti si Adele, okay lang kasi alam naman ng lahat na kaya naman talaga nyang kumanta... nang mahusay... kahit pa-live! :)

    Tungkol naman kay Manny... well, ayon sa isang kasabihan, ang mundo ay mababago hindi dahil sa iyong opinyon, sa halip ay dahil sa ating mga gawa. Kaya yang opinyon nya, dedma hahaha.

    Move-on. Isipin mo na lang yung "aquarian thingy" na favorite ko pa rin until now hahaha! :)
