Last night, I made a short Facebook post about my reasons for choosing Duterte as my president this coming 2016 election and why I have no interest in voting his rival presidential candidates. I had to make the post short since even I find it tedious to read a very long article in just one […]
Frankly, most of the time, I tend to stay mum in social media because that is what I usually do when certain issues come up that can spark uproars from other people or a community.
I do not react negatively against the source. I talk to my friends about it, exchange opinions about the topic and move on.
As with the case if Pacquiao’s recent comments based on his opinion about same sex marriage that sparked an uproar from the LGBT community when he called those who do it as worse than animals, it has become a nuisance seeing my Facebook’s feed filled with almost 95% of them.
So what is my take on this then? Sure, Pacquiao’s comments may somewhat lead some people to be angry, insulted or whatever negative description of emotional feeling they can come up with. But in reality, I cannot see why things like this become a big issue.
Try reading comments in Inquirer articles and the comments there are actually way harsher than what Pacquiao just said. So most of the comments posted there come from trolls. Regardless, even if one of the commenters used a real identity, I will still ignore any negative comment the user may post.
I admit, sometimes the comments can hurt when the comments in Inquirer articles seemingly diss Filipinos with very bad insults but that is about it. I ignore them and read the next comment.
I look at people who instigate negative comments as someone who need attention or KSP for short. Whenever somebody says something negative about others, people tend to want to get back at them by spreading their comments in social media. People should just ignore them.
Pacquiao was only asked what he thought about same sex marriage and when some people did not like what he said, they attack him in every bad way possible.
Get a life people! 😛
It was not like Pacquiao just said it out of the blue and try to get the ire of those who will be affected. It was his own darn opinion! And he was asked about it!
This is the problem in today’s society. When someone does not like one’s opinion about certain topics, they diss them good. I even read people’s reaction that they are happy when Nike ditched Pacquiao after his comments.
Hello, this is what companies do: to get in the good side of the people. So to the person who started a pitch to Nike to ditch Pacquiao, it was inevitable that that happened with or without that person’s initiative.
It was also funny reading celebrities’ comments that they would not vote for Pacquiao because of his comments. As if they would vote for him in the first place :P. Yeah, right!
If Pacquiao just blurted it out for no other reason, then that is a different story. In any scenario, you cannot win everybody’s approval. Despite what happened, I admire Pacquiao’s stance on the topic of same sex marriage. It was his own view, his own opinion and he stood by it.
Yes. you read it right. Crap. They are supposed to be the local enforcers within the barangay but instead, they do not enforce simple laws like until what time annoying discorals should be allowed.
Anybody wanting to blast out music to neighboring areas should respect the rule of law: 12 midnight on weekdays and 2AM on weekends (Friday and Saturday). But what happens? Hell, they let these stupid discorals play their music even until the next morning.
Yes. The next morning. Can you believe that?!? Although I have to admit that in my experience Talamban discorals are second since the latest time I heard it last play was around 6:00AM the most. Barangay Apas was the worst since they still played it until 7:00AM.
And hell no, these often happen when there are events that the barangay holds. If it ends early, then that is what is called a miracle. They simply have no respect to people around them when these people are the ones paying for their salaries.
That is actually the equivalent of not doing their jobs.
So BOO! BOO to all tanods especially the barangay captain for doing a lousy job on this. Such a simple law and it cannot be enforced. How pathetic! 😛
