Advice to Gay Filipinos
After being attacked by the Comelec, Mr. Tulfo and even Mr. Beltran, here is a nice piece of advice to Filipino gay men from "David", one of the more intelligent readers of this blog:
sadly, your frustrations are shared by glbt's all over the world.
in my experience, people like mr. tulfo and mr. beltran seldom come around. if and when they do, it is usually in their old age when just getting up in the morning becomes their priority. therefore, your focus might better be centered on educating the youth, your country's future leaders.
the time to be heard is now. make your presence known. get out of that closet! your strength is in your numbers. only support candidates who lobby for anti discrimination in the workplace.
finally, put away your catholic upbringing and don't drop another peso in the church's plate. you might also take a hard look at birth control. its all related.
Thank you for this wise perspective on our situation.
My favorite among your tips is never to put another peso on the Catholic Church's plate. I hope every gay man heeds this call so the church will soon realize how important we are in the fabric of society.
Now I just hope that Bench, Smart and PLDT are not supporting the church as well.
