Before continuing,I would like to say that yes,I am guilty of being a lazy,idiotic filipino who is a native of this country.I have been visiting this website for the past few months and since i have just signed up for being a member of this site,I,for some reason,am feeling obliged to tell you about my opinion regarding this site(I am a filipino after all,so maybe this’ll get intersting)
My gosh I love this place.Every post here is true and candid to the core.The voices found here are exactly the ones that are needed to be heard by this country.Am I correct to say that one of the purpose of this site is to encourage change to each Filipino?If that’s the case well….then yay,I guess.Reading the articles here gives me knowledge(yeaahhh it is a bit ……just roll with it,kay) while making me immensely interested.This site is an eye-opener while being funny and that makes me happy.
(Before continuing,may I remind you that I am not here to troll and stuff like that.I am just here raising some opinions on things that I think are really not that good.I mean,sometimes criticisms make a person feel more empowered ,right?And I still like this site and all the people here.)
So ummm,where to begin…Well,there seems to be something that feels too mean-spirited around.Well,I should have expected it since the site name blatantly spells it out but still I feel a bit hated in here.Maybe it’s the caricatures and memes.Or maybe it’s the use of cuss words.While I do respect the belief that hating is a part of life,I don’t really like it.
Now,to Racism.I want to believe that you have no intent of being racist.But,I do feel that if someone reads some of your comments by someone regardless of nationalityt,there is a chance that they will accuse you of being racist.I mean the statements”Filipinos are dumbf****” or “Filipinos are clearly not humans but are monkeys” while not to be taken seriously or literally does at least have a some lil racial undertones to anyone.Then again at this moment,maybe being racy to the filipinos is absolutely necessary for at least an individual to open his/her eyes.
I respect all your views about religion,I really do.It sometimes bug me though that some atheist perceives religion as being “OMGZZZ he’s dying ,I should totally pray and do genetic religious ritual #5675676 instead of actually doing something like call 911 because RELIGION” .I do realize though that most of your comments about religion is actually criticisms about how stupid we practice it.But still,eating sh*t as a metaphor for religion is,eh.BTW,I also don’t like how religious people perceive it as”OMMGGGG,i don’t care if am spiritual within or not,i’ll be fine as long as I exactly do rituals and rituals only”.
I think it all points down to how I feel that you slightly lack sensitivity(then again since you assume that usually expats visit here,sensitivity towards the filipinos are not needed).For me sensitivity is important and I do hope you think of that too.People can still exploit the foul poisons of a place while being sensitive,right?(For the record,I always assume that you are always sensitive to others when in public)
That’s all I have to say.It’s just my opinion,just ignore it if you feel like to
