Filipinas Strike High Profile in SF One Billion Rising

By |

A large contingent of young Filipino students show up for flash mob

SAN FRANCISCO—Filipino women struck a strong presence among more than a thousand Valentine’s Day crowd of mostly women and girls of various ethnicities, who danced “flash-mob” style in front of City Hall to demand an end to violence against women.

Leni Marin and Debbie Lee of Futures without Violence, a national organization dedicated to ending violence against women and girls

The event held in 190 places around the world called for a billion women to walk away from their homes, businesses and jobs and dance in a show of collective strength against assaults on women and girls and for gender equality.

“When I was 22, I didn’t know I could leave my abusive marriage,” said Marily Mondejar, president of Filipina Women’s Network (FWN), one of the organizers of the San Francisco event and a speaker in the program. It took me years before I got the courage to tell someone and ask for help.”

Mondejar also declared: “I will dance tonight in memory of Claire Joyce Tempongko, who was murdered in front of her two children, and other Filipina victims of domestic violence, and I will keep on dancing until all women and children in San Francisco are free of violence.”

Mariquit Palabyab, a teacher at Rosa Parks Elementary School and member of Filipina Womenās Network, is a survivor of sexual assault. One in three women and girls (about one billion) are subject to violence at some point in their life

There was palpable excitement in the crowd, dressed mostly in red and black, as it started gathering on Polk Street, in front of City Hall as early as 3 p.m. for 4 p.m. event, in the unseasonably warm winter afternoon. A DJ played lively music to warm up people for the later flash mob dance.

A large group of Filipino students, both girls and boys, came marching in just before the program started, waving flags of their organizations–Samahan ng Kababaihan, Migrante of Northern California.

A Filipina Women’s Network booth gave away free bags and umbrellas, sold tee shirts, and asked people to fill out a small card saying “I Am Rising Because…”.

Mariquit Palabyab, a 24-year-old teacher at Rosa Parks Elementary School saw an uncle perform at a “Vagina Monologues” performance and decided to join FWN. “One out of three women and girls around the world experiences  violence.  I am one of three.  I was a victim of sexual assault as a girl and as a woman,“ Palabyab explained.

Elena Mangahas came from Stockton

“It is important for everyone to know how much violence is going on their communities so they can start doing something about it,” said Jayann Leyson of Fil-Am for Progress, a group that supports Filipino candidates for elective positions.

Leni Marin, senior vice President of Futures Without Violence, said the event underscored “the urgent need for us to call on our representatives to urge Speaker John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor to see to it that Congress passes an inclusive Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) without further delay.”

Domestic violence is a big problem in the Filipino community, “but many of us are still silent about it,” said Elena Mangahas, chair of FWN and a community organizer in Stockton.

Marily Mondejar, president of Filipina Womenās Network (middle) joins SF San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee in raising their hands and voices in support of One Billion Rising

A report on 160 U.S. domestic violence- related homicides in Asian families from 2000-2005 found that 34 of 158 (21.5 percent ) victims with known ethnicities were Filipino and 23 of 122 (18.9 percent) perpetrators with known ethnicities were Filipino.

According to the Asian Pacific Islander Institute on Domestic Violence, seven domestic violence related homicides were reported in 2000 in Hawaii and five of the seven women killed were of Filipino descent, a disproportionately high rate given that Filipinos represent only 12.3% of the total population of Hawaii.

But not only women spoke out at the rally. Al Perez, a member of the San Francisco Entertainment Commission, and president of Fil- Am Arts Exposition called on men to  get involved in the movement to stop violence against women: “Women are our moms, sisters, nieces, neighbors.  We have to break the cycle of violence that affects us all, men and women.”

City officials like Mayor Ed Lee, Board of Supervisors Chair David Chiu, District Attorney George Gascon, Commission on the Status of Women President Julie Soo spoke spiritedly in support of One Billion Rising.

One Billion Rising was initiated by Eve Ensler, a playwright and activist known for her celebrated play “The Vagina Monologues,” to protest domestic abuse, gang rape, female genital mutilation, and war.  She told the UK’s Guardian she has been most amazed by actions against sex trafficking in Mexico and women’s mass actions in the Philippines.

That 50 cities in Italy began preparing events took Ensler by surprise. “That was a real turning point for me,” she said.  In the UK parliament will be asked to vote for sex and relationship education to be part of school curriculum to counter growing bullying and abuse against girls in schools.

As the San Francisco program ended and dusk descended, the flash mob dancers moved with more vigor and excitement, knowing that they have joined their voices with people in nearly 200 places around the world to call for an end to violence against women and girls.

    The VAST majority of victims of violence are, in fact, MALE, but feminist BIGOTS don’t care about that, STOP VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN, BUT NOT AGINST MEN, of course.

    All this feminist attention to “male evil” is called TOXIC VICTIMHOOD, feminists use it to extract government cash, paid for by MOSTLY MALE TAXPAYERS. They use a host of bogus claims and statistics which they reapeat and repeat, it us all just hate. In USA feminists are handed 400 million dollars for VAWA, they try to find more and more victims to keep it all going.

    Do they think seriously males are not touched by female domestic abuse?
    Female genital mutilation? What about the culturally enforced circumcusion of virtually ALL filipinos? they don’t care about that, of course, different genitalia.

    War? Do these silly feminists think men love having parts of their head shot off and losing legs? Men have been forced to fight since the start of time, by rich, powerful sultans, kings. In world war 1, nearly all the soldiers had no vote, no say about being sent to be killed. Millions of men died, and at the end of the war, men were given the vote at A VERY VERY HEAVY PRICE. Women stayed at home in total safety, they were given the vote for FREE a few years later. Incidentaly the early feminist suffragette movement shamed men that they saw in the streets in England and US into going away to the freezing trenches to be killed while THEY stayed in their rich homes inTOTAL SAFETY. This was the “White Feather” campaign. DISPOSABLE MEN as usual.

    The dancing day organiser Eve Ensler is a militant lesbian with no interest in the gene pool or families, she surely knows that violence between lesbians is much higher than between maried couples.
    The most common form of domestic abuse is mutual abuse, but men are stronger, the best way to avoid it all is IF WOMEN DO NOT STRIKE FIRST.
    The next most common form is one sided abuse, this is overwhelmingly done by, YES, females, including my lovely ex wife. MOTHERS are also the most common abusers/murderers of their own kids.

    The least comon domestic abuse is one sided abuse by the male, but feminists like to peddle their hatred of HALF OF MANKIND, feminism has become a violent hate movement.

    STRONG FAMILIES NOT FEMINIST PROPAGANDA

    • Loggnat

      I’m glad you’re not peddling hate against anybody….. :)))) hehehehe

      • http://twitter.com/Sizzle75Ian ian martinez

        Loggnat, many men are becoming angry at the lack of male rights ( particularly to our family rights), and how we have been always treated as disposable taxpayers, soldiers and second class by governments, but we have NO hate like feminists have. In life when there is a huge injustice, it is right to get angry.

        Feminist toxic victimhood is a ploy to get government cash, they have ZERO incentive to actually stop violence against women, rapes etc. It is just all a clever clever tactic. OBVIOUSLY all violence is wrong, but in reality the number of female victims is tiny.

        Men, by nature are protective and are providers, we think of EVERYONE, females, men and kids. feminists are only interested in female supremacy and cherry picking their “gender inequalities” while ignoring male ones, number 1 – lifespan, number of suicides, number of workplace deaths, number of prisoners, male only draft for example.

        if there is a great injustice occurring, good men and women interested in strong families must stand up to these feminists and their silliness. To do nothing is to allow their hate to succeed as it has in the western countries and it’s devastation of families.

        But men and many women in western countries and some in Philippines are beginning to push back feminism and it’s main tactic – toxic victimhood. We have to for our CHILDREN’S SAKE.

      • suburbanmother

        ” but in reality the number of female victims is tiny” I suggest you visit Nicholas Kristoff’s website HAlf the SKy. It is dedicated to helping women around the world who are victims of gender based violence.

      • http://twitter.com/Sizzle75Ian ian martinez

        Suburbanmother, The vast majority of victims of violence are MALE, the number of female victims is VERY SMALL, yes.

        I have seen the documentary by Nicholas Kristoff, he condescendingly advocates using police to extract female sex workers from brothels, even when they work WILLINGLY which nearly all do, by the way. I wonder what job he proposes that they do instead? Will he pay their wages?

        You obviously care nothing about male victims and you care nothing about male victims of gender based violence either. But of couese, you expect males to care about female victims. In the infamous Delhi rape, which was a monstrous crime, i bet you have zero concern for the boyfriend who was maimed and nearly killed. But, as men, we, by nature care about women, men AND kids, it is part of being a father, putting MORE than we get out, having empathy, emotionally stable, not being self obsessed, that is a MAN.

        The founder of the original women’s refuges is called Erin Pizzey, you probably have heard of her. She worked 30 years in the field of domestic violence, her conclusion was that the majority of women who came to the shelters were just as violent as the men that they left. After she wrote this, a feminist group threatened to kill her family and they beheaded her pet dog, JUST BECAUSE ERIN DISAGREED WITH THEM. please read about her if you are interested in REAL causes of domestic violence, which is a tiny fraction of overall violence, of course.

        Personally speaking when my ex wife threatened to kill me and almost blinded me, there was nowhere to go there are NO facilities for men. Even teenage sons are not allowed into domestic violence “shelters”, if you are male and a woman has assaulted you, YOU are the suspect still. There is nothing you can do, you do not appear on any statistics, the police say things like “what did you do to deserve that? ” and “it is men who do the violence around here”.

        Feminists say that there is no excuse for domestic violence, but when it is by a woman then, THERE ARE ALL THE EXCUSES IN THE WORLD. Maybe the woman who killed her husband last week in Manila because he did not come back on time will have some excuse too after this dancing day.

      • kanoy

         TRUE!!!

      • http://twitter.com/Sizzle75Ian ian martinez

        the main lack of male rights is family and reproductive rights, if you are an unmarried father in the Philippines you have no rights at all. In my own family my cousin married a women and they had a child. After 1 year she abandoned her husband and baby to go to Manila, the baby was looked after by my uncle and aunt in a stable family. After 9 months, she reappeared demanding to see her son, but when she appeared she was with 2 police officers and she took the baby that she had abandoned and my cousin could not do ANYTHING. The baby will no doubt have problems now.

        That is typical, due to all the female biassed laws, bad women have almost complete impunity. this has all been caused by chivalrous politicians and the influences of an extremeist organisation – feminism using toxic victimhood.

      • kanoy

         YOU DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO PUT YOUR WIFE LIFE AT RISK REPEATEDLY OR EVEN ONCE…THE DECISION TO HAVE CHILDREN OR NOT IS A JOINT DECISION,,,ITS HER LIFE THAT IS AT RISK NOT YOURS TOO BAD SOME MEN CAN’T GIVE BIRTH IF THEY COULD THEY WOULD DO AS MANY FILIPINO WOMEN FORCED BY HUSBANDS LIKE YOURSELF DO…..GET AN ABORTION….IN 2008 355,000 MOTHERS DIED WHILE GIVING BIRTH,,IN CONTRAST IN 2008 NOT 1 FATHER DIED WHILE GIVING BIRTH

      • http://twitter.com/Sizzle75Ian ian martinez

        Men have no rights whatsoever when it comes to reproduction, of course there is no “gender equality” there, our only right is, well, sex. WHY should the woman ONLY decide about our children? It is called the golden uterus, they think that they OWN the children because they have the baby inside their uterus for 9 months.
        Obviously because of biology, no men died in child birth, but do you know how many men died in work related deaths (nearly all) , or how male suicides there are, but of course you do not care. Feminists are self obsessed and lack any empathy of others, but men, by nature consider everyone.
        Men invented most health related advancements for women of course, men inventd all female contraception,and most doctors are male.

      • Crazy_horse101010

        no rights thats a laugh yhe philippines leads the world in teen age pregancies and i never seen any men taking car of these girls or their kids. i can show you dozens of them. you spek of one thing i can show hundreds from the other side

      • http://twitter.com/Sizzle75Ian ian martinez

        All i have is my personal experiences.

        Pregnancies? There are contraceptives available for women, BEFORE sex, DURING sex and even AFTER sex, i wonder why these women are not using them. Nobody forces them NOT to use them, IT IS THEIR CHOICE as usual, female CHOICES, female PRIVILEGE.

        Incidentally ALL female contraceptives were invented by men.

        The only contraception for men is DURING sex, strange that? It is as if, men are not ALLOWED to control their own reproduction.
        but when we CAN control our reproducttion, there will be a revolution in how men are treated, we will no longer be willing to sacrifice ourselves for fmales ever again.

        Your post is abusive and a personal attack, this is not the 70s, men are NO longer wiling to put up with female abuse like before. I have flagged this post as inappropriate. I did predict before thatyou would become abusive.

      • Crazy_horse101010

        i take it you must live in the city and dont see what happens in the poor villages.i see women every week with black eyes and bruises because their husband got drunk on tuba and he wanted sex and she refused. they even sit there and brag about how they showed her. every week in the papers here is stories of women getting beat to death. nobody protects the poor women and guess what its getting worse because of more poverty.

      • http://twitter.com/Sizzle75Ian ian martinez

        Crazy horse, your judgement is poor, I live in remote Palawan, i SINCERELY feel sorry for anyone who is a victim of what you describe, but feminists have painted the picture that ONLY FEMALES are victims and only men are perpetrators, in the west they do this to get government money. You can bet that there are many many male victims of female violence that do not admit it and many who take the violent behaviour of their wives as normal.
        I am a victim and I know what it is like, it is feminist hate that is driving a wedge between men and women, we need strong families, not feminism to make normal children.
        it is not about if you are male or female, it is about power, emotional stability, dominance. As i have said most violence is mutual, women may hit first but men are stronger and the women often emotionally abuse men too. If men in a certain area are tough then the women are tough too.

        I too have seen men who have been threatened with knives by their wives, beaten up, nagged at all night, women use weapons, stealth, violence by proxy.
        much rsearch is showing one sided violence to be started mainly by females not drunken men.
        but as i keep saying, the VAST majority of victims of general violence are MALES, but you dont care about them, presumably.

        my wife hit me in the face with a bar and i nearly lost my eye. but maybe you don’t care, men are disposable aren’t we? As usual. Men are expected to do Dirty Dangerous Difficult work, where i live most men work 12 hour shifts at the nickel mine) whereas women have an easy life, this is the same in Palawan or Manila or San Francisco. No “gender equality” there – that is only when it suits women.

        Domestic Violence – WOMEN ARE HALF THE PROBLEM

        what mean men i ve worked with women truck drivers women equipment operators in the san francisco area and they were just part of the crew so what how many western countries have you  lived to become a expert. ive worked with women in terrible storms and they worked along side the men near SAN FRANCISO. no middle ages mentality.

      • http://twitter.com/Sizzle75Ian ian martinez

        Crazy Horse, in a previous post you assumed i lived in Manila and cosmopolitan, because of what i wrote about men’s rights, i told you i live in Palawan, now you are attempting to belittle me for NOT being cosmopolitan.
        You have poor judgement, you try to denigrate people, all because i have the temerity to disagree.But that is typical female behaviour, and it is MEN who are always classed as abusers, despite most of it being actualy done by FEMALES.

        In Philippines where i live, I have NEVER once seen a woman help in a disaster in 30 years, DISPOSABLE men, even the very big strong women hide away and many small weak men help with bucket passing etc.

        Genitalia type determines if you save lives in Philippines, and EVERYWHERE ELSE IN THE WORLD.

        Females CHOOSE to be victims, men CHOOSE to be savers, IN EVERY SOCIETY. We are superheroes, we have built the world and created a safe environment for females, we put in far more than we receive, we are emotionally stable, we have empathy, yes, SUPERHEROES.

        As for your jibe about “middle ages mentality” – Nowadays many many men are starting to demand REAL equality, not just cherry picked equalities that feminists wanted WHEN IT SUITED THEM.
        Men are seeking REAL equality in family life, how we are treated by the central state, work, health. It is FEMINISTS who are stuck in the 1970s, they just dont get it now.
        men are now seeking to push back feminist silliness, in western countries feminism has done so much damage to families.

        But women can be split into 2 groups, 1 Feminists who want to cherry pick their “gender inequalities” and use toxic victimhood and 2 Traditionalist women who want to maintain all female privilege, look for a man to become a dependent of. Sort of parasite.
        It is the traditionalist women who are the BIGGEST objectors to men’s rights, not the feminists. Of course, even the feminists become traditionalists when there is a disaster or a war, when there are disposable men to sacrifice themselves

        this is not the 70s, women in the Philippines are above many western countries in the UN female gender equality index, why you even have the right to use Caps Lock or not, oh i have said that already.

        When there is a natural disaster in the PhiIippines, one thing strikes me, despite all the female equality, ALL the savers are men, even if you are a big strong woman, what determines if you are a “victim” or a “saver” is your genitals. feminism is suspended then, only men are disposable aren’t we?

      • Crazy_horse101010

      • http://twitter.com/Sizzle75Ian ian martinez

        I will leave it up to readers to decide WHO is making sense and WHO is a little abusive “macho chest beating”.
        feminists are not used to men actually standing up for themselves, you had better get used to it, men are begining to push back feminist craziness FOR OUR CHILDREN’S SAKE
        hundreds of thousands of American and other western servicemen are the MOST affected by feminist laws and the lack of family rights for men and fathers. They are AUTOMATICLLY assumed to be violent even when their wives are the real violent ones. When they make their “tours of duty” is when the women will seek the divorces and the feminist laws interpretations will claim the military husbands have not spent any time with their kids. IN USA the laws about “child support” are the most onerous in the world, there is extreme draconian legislation, jail terms, driving licence withdrawal, garnishing of salaries, no longer allowed to have a weapon for servicemen. It is nothing to do if you a wimp or not, if your wife is emotionally unstable or unfaitful you will see WHY men’s right movements are springing up everywhere. it s the LEGISLATION, the whole state and it’s apparatus is turned on you, just because you are a male.

     Cases of violence against women up by 21 percent  FEB 24 2012
    THERE is a 21 percent increase in cases of violence against women in the Philippines

    2008 Statistical Report of the National Commission on the Role of Filipino Women that showed violence against women cases have increased since 2007 despite the existence of laws protecting women.

    syndicates that victimized women, and making the country one of the main sources of drug mules or drug couriers to other countries.

    The Philippines have been considered as one of the seven countries in the world with increasing numbers of Human Immunodeficiency Virus or Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome , whose ages range from 15 to 24 years old.

    • http://twitter.com/Sizzle75Ian ian martinez

      females are chosen as drug mules because as i have mentioned they are treated more leniently. Pregnant women even more.

      Do you know about cases of violence there were against MEN, you dont mention that, is it because you dont really care about men, as i said already. Males by nature care about females, men and kids, that is the diffrence betwen feminiats and men.

      despite so called gender equality, nearly all prisoners are male, if they were female, commissions would spend millins of pesos attempting social engineering to change this, but males are expendable, they deserve to be punished, women deserve “treatment” and the fault of their crime is men, acording to feminists.

      I have already addressed feminist factoids, the only uncontrovertible statistic are number of deaths. Male murder victims of female violence account for 30-40% of domestic violence deaths, but feminists dont want to know about that, of course.

      You know already i am sure that Philippines has one of the lowest rates of AIDS in the world, are you seriously trying to blame MEN only for AIDS, maybe you need biology lessons.
      femimists are not used to being opposed, there is no logic to their silly theories and factoids, sooner or later they will resort to personal abuse, shaming tactics.

        philippines is one of the countries where aids is growing by leaps and bounds. and i take you dont get out the real world where the poor are. here it is 90 percent men beating and killing their wives.because they get drunk on tuba and use theirs wives for punching bags. im always seeing women with black eyes and bruises. maybe in manila life is hunky dory but out in the real world there is no equal rights among the women who have 10 kids

        Where i live men work 12 hour shifts digging rock in the local Nickel mine, many give their weekly wage to their wives. A few have died in the last few years. I know which job is easier, so do you.

        Here the number of female victims of violence is tiny, i know the local police officer. Nearly all are male, but male victims dont count do they, only female victims are significant to feminists. Males are disposable.

        When there was a landslip here recently it was ONLY men who saved lives and property, the women all stayed in their houses even the young strong women, genital type determines if you are a victim or a saver. Gender equality soon disappears when it comes to disasters.
        men save women, work for women as their vurtual personal slaves. DISPOSABLE MEN.

        95% of workplace deaths are male, if even 60% were female, something would be done, but because men are disposable nobody really cares

        because in this country you dont have women construction workers bus drivers its hard to have work place accident when all you are is a cashier. i suggest you read the cebu papers 90 percent of the beatings is men on women. i worked in one of the most dangerous jobs in the 7 days a week 14 hours a day and gave my money to my wife because i never had time to go the bank so what i thought we were in the 21 st century

        Women themselves CHOOSE easy studies, they themselves CHOOSE a cushy low paid job.
        They EXPECT to find a husband who will SACRIFICE himself for her in a Dirty Difficult Dangerous job while she does an easy job. It is like that in EVERY society in the world. If women have hard lives, men will always have MUCH MUCH harder ones.

        You care nothing about male workers and men in general, why should we care about women then? just interested.
        But now men are not so stupid, we are no longer willing to be sacrificial slaves to females..

        men seldom report female violence as i yave already described and when they do report it, they are ALWAYS denigrated

      • Crazy_horse101010

        i know more about  male workers tham you ever will so stop babbling. ive been involved with them for yearsand i have never ever seen one who was a sacrificial  slave to anyone and ive been all over. men seldom report violence is right because there is very little to report. hard lifes have you ever had a baby

      • Crazy_horse101010

        i think kanoys posts are appropriate compared to your sexist slurs. my first wife left me with 3 kids i raised them alone until i re married so what i dont hate women for it life goes on for most people. and im hapoily married now  

      • Crazy_horse101010

        the internet says that aids cases at the present rate will increase 5 times before this president leaves office with the young people being the largest increase who knows. as for murder cases among men ive rarely ever seen in the papers here of women killing men there was one recently where a son killed his father because the mother was being beaten to death

      • http://twitter.com/Sizzle75Ian ian martinez

        You obviously missed the lovely lady who stabbed her husband to death rcently all because he was late returning home in Manila, but maybe you are blind to stories of male victims, it wouldnt surprise me. my sister working in England told me that yesterday she saw a female driver deliberately drive her car at a group of mentally handicapped kids and almost killed them all, because they were throwing snowballs at her car.

        Males are 30-40% of domestic violence victims, probably more.

        Mothers murder and abuse their own kids MUCH more than natural fathers, why not have a dancing day to protest about that eh? Good idea?

        Are you seriously saying that EXCLUSIVELY men are responsible for AIDS? Philippines has one of the lowest rates in the world.You dont think they are having sex with. ………… A. …… Woman?

        Men are no longer willing to be abused continuously by females, we are standing up to feminist hate and silliness, for the good of our children AND women.

         FEMALES HAVE 3 BODY CAVITIES….MALES 2

        QUOTE>>females are chosen as drug mules because they are treated more leniently.

        DRUG DEALERS CHOOSE TO DEAL DRUGS,,,,DRUGS DO NOT CHOOSE DEALERS…POOR MALE POOR FEMALE DO IT FOR THE MONEY

        While visiting a jailed Filipino drug courier in Thailand, Santiago recalled, he was shocked to find out that such an educated person would resort to peddling drugs overseas.

        Santiago questioned the IT-graduate why he engaged himself in such an illegal activity, and the curt reply given to him was: “Wala kasi akong pera. (It’s because I don’t have MONEY).”

        “The statement bore no remorse at all,” Santiago said.

         IAN QUOTE>>females are chosen as drug mules because as i have mentioned they are treated more leniently. Pregnant women even more.

        LETS TAKE A LOOK AT HOW ”LENIENT” THESE WOMEN ARE TREATED COMPARED TO MEN

        There are at least 630 Filipino “drug mules” scattered worldwide and 70 of them are now on Death Row

        Sixty-two percent of the “drug mules” are women; 38 percent are men and were recruited through the Internet and social networks like Facebook and Twitter.

        To the PDEA’s dismay, the number suggests that Filipinos have become a favorite instrument of international drug syndicates in transporting illegal drugs by means of ingesting the banned substances.

        “One of the biggest problems of PDEA is the growing number of Filipino drug mules,”
        Out of the 630 reported Filipino drug mules, 303 of them are in Asia and the Pacific (205 of which are in China alone), 121 in Europe, 122 in the Americas, and 89 in Africa and in the Middle East, said Santiago.

        He said there are at least three reasons why Filipinos are chosen as drug mules: First, they are very articulate, not only in English but also in other languages; second, they are computer-literate; and third, they make easy prey because of their eagerness to escape the clutches of poverty by making big money.

    Feminism in the western world has become a violent hate organisation. They use toxic victimhood because it is very difficult to oppose, rather like “end all war” campaigns. In western countries they receive billions of dollars of mostly male taxpayers’ cash. The realities behind feminism is very different however, they are led by extremist bigots who hate men because of perceived past ills of “the patriarchy”, i.e. the disposable men that women have used throughout history.

    Men have built EVERYTHING in the world, the buildings as well as things like democracy and things which have made female lives easier and allowed them to go to work.
    Females will always choose easy studies and easy jobs, work for females is a right not an obligation as it is for men. Feminists wish to chery pick their gender inequalities, but of course keep all the traditional female privileges.

    we have had 40 years of feminism, maybe not in Philippines, but feminist laws have spread here too allowing women to have impunity. You only find this out when you receive legal papers, which afects very few filipinos.

    But the number of men and our kids affected by all these self obsessed feminists who care NOTHING about males, is growing daily, we are pushing back their silliness. Feminism encourages women to put themselves first and their families second, many men think this has been deliberately seeded by the establishment elite.
    The realities of female domestic violence are hidden, many men i know just take violence from their wives and the emotional terrorism, for the benefit of their children.

    This dancing day was organised by a militant lesbian, lesbians relationships tend to be significantly more violent than hetrosexual ones.
    Men are the superheroes and savers of lives in the Philippines AND ALWAYS WILL BE.
    Women are the shoppers, see how many stores in the malls of for them, men earn money, women spend their money. DISPOSABLE MEN.

    this is my last post, men’s rights groups seek REAL GENDER EQUALITY and also encourage
    women interested in strong families to stand up to feminists and toxic victimhood, bye
