Normalizing acceptance and equality: The gay ads in the PH

The Philippines is a predominantly Catholic nation. You would think that since the religion is all about an all-encompassing kind of love that people would be less bigoted. (You would also think that they would not support maniacs who openly declare that people suspected of wrongdoings should be shot dead like animals for slaughter but that subject is for another post.) Unfortunately, we have a President who calls his enemies bakla as a derogatory term, a senator who said that gay people are worse than animals, and journalists who said that gay people should not flaunt their gayness or that gender is something that can be “taught” from an early age.

When you have all these influential people spewing misinformation and hateful rhetoric magnified by sheep in online forums who echo whatever they say, an active campaign about acceptance and equal rights becomes imperative to make up for the lack of LGBT-related information in our schools and discrimination rooted on ignorance.

Go on a no visa 6-night cruise to Japan and Taiwan aboard Star Cruises’ SuperStar Virgo this 2018


Cruises have become one of the most popular ways to relax and see the beauty this world has to offer. With its unique destinations, cost-efficient rates, and state-of-the-art ships, it comes as no surprise that cruising continues to gain popularity, especially among Filipinos.

Last year, SuperStar Virgo docked in Manila and cruised to Laoag in Ilocos, Kaohsiung in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and back again in Manila. This year, Star Cruises announced that its 269-meter cruise ship will homeport again in Manila for the summer months from March to May. With absolutely no visa requirements, the 6-night SuperStar Virgo cruise offers two travel destination packages. The first package will start at the Manila port then a day will be spent on the high seas. The next two days will be dedicated to seeing Naha in Japan, and Keelung in Taiwan. The fifth day will be on the high seas again, and then the cruise will head back to Manila on the sixth day.

Earn rebates when you pay your bills with PLDT-SMART’s MVP Rewards Card


There are hundreds of rewards cards in the market right now. Okay, maybe I am exaggerating but it feels that way whenever I check out my mom’s wallet. Personally, I only use the one that earns points from flights but everything else seem like a nuisance because I get to redeem the points from specific stores only.

Then comes the MVP Rewards Card for PLDT, SMART, SUN, and TNT subscribers. More than just a rewards card, this doubles up as a prepaid debit card that lets you earn points that are good as cash and lets you redeem them wherever VISA is acceptable here and even abroad. You can even use it as a tap card when paying for toll fees in the Cavite Expressway.

Statement: Bloggers for Freedom


We, concerned Filipino bloggers, stand for the rights to free expression and to free speech. And our first responsibility is to protect these rights.

We thus stand with Rappler, its right to exist, the rights of its working journalists and contributors, and the rights of its community of readers.

We stand against moves to silence and scare journalists, bloggers and media practitioners just because the President and his ardent supporters dislike their news and views.

Now is a time for making choices amid battles between truth and lies, debate and dissonance, democracy and dictatorship.

We sign our names here to tell everyone we have made a choice. We are bloggers for freedom.
