Closet and Ladlad Queens

 Dear insansapinas,


As if it is not enough to reject the application of the party-list representation, the COMELEC even insinuated that many of the people in the Senate and House of Representatives belong to the third gender.


Kung sa Tagalog, sinampal na, sinabunutan pa. ahahay. Name names please. Argh.



Here is the excerpt of the news:


MANILA, Philippines - Gays and lesbians cannot be considered marginalized in society because they are already “overly represented” in Congress, a Commission on Elections (Comelec) official said yesterday.Comelec second division chairman Nicodemus Ferrer was defending the poll body’s rejection of the application of gay-rights group Ang Ladlad for party-list representation.“I have been telling them, you are not under-represented… actually you are over-represented in the Lower House and Upper House,” Ferrer told reporters in an interview. But Ferrer declined to name names.But he said that by getting elected, gay officials have already proven that members of the third sex can be part of the “mainstream community” and should therefore not be considered marginalized.Ferrer explained that by seeking representation as sectoral party in Congress, Ang Ladlad is actually pushing its members away from the mainstream. 
I have been away for a long time and I do not know what's going on in the "Castro district" in Manila.
It used to be the place where the fashion designers had their fashion houses in every corner of the streets.
Resty gave me the latest picture of the  in his article Marginalized but Manila is one big gay bar.

I agree with him. Our gays are not marginalized. They are free to express their feelings, their opinions and their fashion statements without the fear of being lynched by homophobes who are capable of committing sex crimes.

As I have commented in RO's blog, in SF, people belonging to the third gender do not flaunt their lifestyles even with their close friends in the workplace neither they crossdress except when there are occasions like gay parade and celebrations.

para kong aktibistang pulpol na di malaman hahaha.
ang aga naman kasi juice ko, pagkatapos ng eleksiyon di pa rin naman matatahimik kaluluwa ng mga yan e... bakit kamo?

para sa mga nanalo syempre party, kwentahan, bayaran ng utang, bayaran ng utang na loob, bayaran ng utang sa labas, etc etc.

at dun naman sa mga natalo, angalan, demandahan, re counting kasi dinaya, mangangag hambalang ang mga mukha sa tv sa dyaryo painterbyu at dinaya nga e.

ganun ang itatagal ng issue na yan hanghang sa walang pumapansin sa ibang problemang nagaganap,sigh!
