The apolitical Moi

I have always considered myself apathetic to all kinds of ideologies. For me, what matters in life are kindness, the common good, and courtesy. I believe that each one has his or her own belief - be it in the way they conduct their lives, replenish their spirit or the way they part their hair. Thus, when I hear that there exists various movements such as feminism, radical feminism, and womanism, I begin to think that I am an ignoramus with a construed sense of what is the role of women in society.

I was educated one night by Mommie Car and Arms when I realized that I was really apathetic then because I always had strong women role-models in the family and I knew where the real power in the household was. I was part of a matriarchal family with very kind and sensitive men who just let the women have their way. Thus, I was not aware that women are being maltreated in more ways than one.

I am lucky since I was part of a family with strong-willed women – my mom, my lola and my Ate who took care of me since I was four. Thus, I was not really aware that there’s a difference between men and women. For the longest time, I always thought that those with short hair are men and because of their genetic make-up they cannot let their hair grow long. I imitated how my boy playmates pee (yes, I peed standing up when I was young). And I thought that men and women are equal in the way the world works.

While growing up I knew, I turn a blind eye when I see unfair treatment on women.

But sometimes I wonder… with men… with the privileges that they are supposedly given… aren’t they also prejudiced? Aren’t they pressured to conform to the idea that men should be strong, and the central figure in the family? Sometimes I wonder, aren’t we all misjudged in some way or another because of our biological gender? For lesbians like me.. sometimes I think.. am I not butch enough? Am I supposed to be more mannish? Thus, the questions continue to swim inside my brain..


AMEN!

A good ending...

At last, there is already a resolution to the settingherfree saga. It took the writer a long time to end it... honestly, I think it's a work of fiction, crafted before valentine's day, to give couple-less individuals a boo-hoo-hoo....

It's just too good to be true... my theory is that it's a creative writing student's thesis or something...

The writer is good... and he has a good imagination. I posted a comment... hope he won't delete it....

Update: He did delete it! So, it's really too good to be true. (Ba't ko sya inaaway? HAHAHA!) I should really get a life... AMEN!

The Iphone experience

Truth be told, I was happy with my glamorous MMS only phone. I can text, I can call and it's handy. But when I begin my relationship with my Iphone, I am a convert to super moder handheld devices.

I literally don't open my laptop anymore when I am at home. I only need my Iphone to check my emails, facebook, update my twitter, watch videos, podcasts, etc. I don't want to work with documents at home so this is something I find so useful.

I am really at awe with its features (you have to understand that I took a very giant leap in technology). The mere fact that I can check emails and update my calendar are useful features - in a major-major way.

Imagine having the convenience of reading the news, downloading time filler games and of course, there's this useful app - FOOD SPOTTING! It can help you find the nearest bakery, bulalohan, etc.

On the other hand, knowing that this device can be tracked can be spooky! Imagine that it has all of your informatio…
