Men that are Gay

It has become a popular belief that the number of men is decreasing because a lot of them are gay! I did not intend to write about how they become that way and also not promoting them in any other way. I just want to give my opinion about this sexuality based on my first hand experiences with them.There were some not so pleasant incidents but most of them were awesome and worth remembering. So, with this in mind, I can say that men that are gay are not necessarily the following – contrary to popular belief:

  • Scandalous
  • Cross-dressser
  • Vulgar in words and actions
  • Explicitly immoral
  • Sex addicts
  • Weird looking
  • Feminine
  • Loud
  • Aggressive to their men-target
  • Violent

Many religions do not have tolerance with gay people but it’s clear that we should love one another no matter what. Being gay is already a burden to them – because there’s certainly sexual discrimination in many countries with the AIDS screening alone. We should just love them the way they are for as long as they are not into lewd practices.In fact, many of them are:

  • Funny
  • Kind
  • Friendly 
  • Good conversationalists
  • Hard working
  • Smart
  • Good-looking
  • Supportive
  • Loveing to their peers
  • Responsible

Women with gay friends can really attest that these men that are gay are the perfect gentlemen – if only, they are into women. I should know because for once in my life, my best friend was a gay man and he’s the only man that I can live with feeling so happy, peaceful, loved, secured, contented and of course, safe!

Wife Jealous over Husband’s Facebook Friend


By: Elena Grace Flores

It’s always wise not to accept “friend requests” from people we don’t know on social media particularly Facebook – but recently there have been many cases that the persons requesting are “friends” of known relatives plus their surnames are also within the family circle. The tendency is – many of us will just have to accept such requests – thinking that we might offend some relatives for not doing so. Sure enough, just last night – a person named Riza Soriano messaged me on my timeline and here’s the dialogue:

Riza: How did you know Gau Soriano?

Me: I don’t know him really but he has the same last name as my relatives – so I accepted his friend request. You have the same last name…has he done anything bad to you?

Riza: Have you chatted with him? Who’s your relative that is his friend? Even if you don’t know a person you still accept his friend request?

Me: Never – it’s not your business but who are you? Do you want to be blacklisted? You sound like a jealous wife ha ha and you are jealous with a grandma. Are you not ashamed of yourself? I’ll try chatting with that Gau Soriano of yours. Is he handsome? Anyway you seem to have a very low IQ. I was explaining to you earlier that I thought that he is a relative – even you also… since you have the same last name (you might both be a long lost relative), but with your attitude – I doubt it!

Riza: You’re stupid. I have the right to be jealous because I’m his wife. Not like you – even you don’t know him, you still accepted him – just because you want to have many people to chat with. How do I know, who you are?

Me: Well, you could have read my profile, especially the age and status – not just my beautiful face. No doubt that your husband might have lost interest in you because of your stupidity and bad character. On second thought, I actually want to thank you because that means that other women can still be jealous of me. By the way, I’m a sexy grandma – just so you know. Where’s that Gau Soriano? Why can’t I find his profile? Oh he’s ugly and you are jealous? Maybe you are insecure. Just let me know if you need a life coach. I offer my services to you – free of charge. According to Facebook record, I never chatted with your husband. By the way, how did you become my friend? It’s so weird.

Riza: You’re the only one who is telling me that I have a bad attitude. You’re stupid because I don’t think my husband will lose interest in me. Maybe he just wanted to play around because in the Philippines there are many flirty women – so many men are taking advantage of them. Do you think you’re beautiful? You are not my friend and I’m not interested to be friends with people I don’t know – men or women. (I just happen to see your profile at my husband’s Facebook account). You should do that too. Check it out first.

Me: Maybe you are really from the low class of people and I should not go down to your level but I’m actually enjoying this. Since you do not respect your elders, I declare war with you! Maybe you are the flirty one because you even married your ugly husband!

Riza: Stupid – you reacted right away when I just asked you, how did you meet Gau? You already said many things. You are the low class and no respect because when I said that you are a flirty woman, you reacted right away! You better read what I said again if you are really an educated person, Miss beautiful!

Me: I love you. It’s a pity. Okay I will chat with your husband, thanks.

Riza: Okay you do that. I don’t care. It just shows that you are one of the flirty women in the Philippines ha ha ha. What a pity – old woman!

Me: Okay, thanks.

I could have been nicer or more diplomatic with her but I was thinking – this could be an interesting blog material and Filipinas can voice out their sentiments! What happened to Maria Clara if it’s true that women in the Philippines are flirty! In fairness to the husband, he was so apologetic when he replied to my query (Actually he’s not that bad at all and pretty educated too – with the right manners. Too bad… his wife did not trust him.). He begged to please be patient with his wife and he was so sorry, so I said – okay no problem but you will read this on my blog soon!

So, here it is. Let me know if you have some strange Facebook experiences and I would gladly publish them if I think it’s credible. I’d archived the conversation in Tagalog if you want that emailed to you. Just let me know by writing on the comments area.

President Noy’s Indifference when it comes to Sabah?

Yes, it is quite understandable that Sultan Bolkiah of Brunei’s state visit to the Philippines is for discussions over the ASEAN Summit where Brunei is the host country; but if the President is really concerned about the Sabah conflict, he will take the initiative to insert in the agenda the Sabah issue – even just to get the side of the Sultan of Brunei, since they originally owned the ancestral domain – and their royal ancestors were the ones bestowing it to the Sultanate of Sulu. What is he trying to prove for not lifting a finger over it – and instead just lifting an eyebrow? This is definitely a missed opportunity as per this news:

Sabah, sea row not on Noy-Bolkiah agenda

By: Aurea Calica

MANILA, Philippines – President Aquino is not likely to raise the issues of Sabah and the West Philippine Sea with Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah of Brunei during his two-day state visit, Malacañang said yesterday. Presidential spokesman Edwin Lacierda flatly said “no” when asked whether Sabah would be discussed with Bolkiah.

We can surely feel the sentiments of Sultan Jamalul Kiram’s people – asking what kind of President do we have who will just give a cold shoulder when many Filipinos are already slaughtered in Sabah – plus the sufferings of the regular deportees who will remain homeless whether they are in Sabah or in the neighboring islands of the Philippines. Mr. President, where is your heart?

Family Malfunction?

It may be true that there are crime syndicates masterminding the abduction of children in Manila for some gruesome reasons – but they will not be that successful if some Filipinos have not lost their family values. Yes, we can blame it to poverty but note that, it happens because of our own doings! Why make more babies when you can’t even take care of one? The RH bill was passed to educate people on family planning methods but a major religious group took it as anti Christ and senators who voted for this policy have been named Team Patay or Death Team! We’ll this case is a solid proof of ignorance despite living during the computer era:

Good Samaritans return lost QC boy


John Gabriel was the latest on the growing list of young children who had been reported missing—some allegedly abducted—in the metropolis over the past few weeks, prompting speculations that a human trafficking or an “organ-harvesting” syndicate was prowling the streets. Police have allayed such fears but nevertheless formed Task Force Sagip Angel to intensify the search and look for any pattern.

Prior to this, another young boy was found dead after disappearing for more than 2 weeks just beneath the creek of the nearby property. At 4 years old, he could have easily fall off from the elevated land down to the bottom of the creek fracturing his skull. Now, after discovering the decomposing body separated from its extremities by neighbors, his aunt who happened to burn the trash near the location – was suspected by some of the family members to have something to do with the killing. When will we realize that it is a clear sign of ailing parental abilities instead of looking for someone to blame for our misfortunes?. It is a huge social problem when there are parents who have no choice but to leave their fragile offspring in the care of aging grand parents that cannot cope with the energy of the child – thus leaving him prone to accidents!
