Sex Education: Yey or Ney? Which side are you okay? 

Sex Education: Yey or Ney? Which side are you okay? 

Sex Education. This two words actually looks contradicting. Sex but Education? When you take this literally, it would mean, teaching how to sex right? But sex education as it was proposed by the others, it aims to teach students to discuss information what they need to know: causes and effects, acts, and everything. Now, are you a ney or a yey if sex educatiom in schools will be approved? 

We can’t deny that cases of teenage pregnancy are very popular these days. Most people in this world have atleast one person thet know that get or a pregnant in her early age. Pregnant teengers not just suffers from early pregnancy but also if the person who get them pregnant will take a responsibility. Some of them will, some of them are huge cowards and will not. Also, pre-marital sex are so harmful. It can lead into different disease. Not just to harm you but also to destroy your life. And others who wants sex education be taught in schools, believed that the only way to stop those cases is to teach sex education. But ofcourse, people have different mindsets so the reactions of them are divided into two. 

Yey. These are the people who wants sex education be taught in schools. Becauae they believed that, teach it is the only way to stop various cases of early pregnancy ad HIV and AIDS any many more. They want the teens or maybe even childs to be knowledgeable enough and will not engage theirselves in various cases involving into sex that will harm them such as engaging into pre-marital sex. And in order to be knowledgeable enough? Teach sex education in schools! That was the belief of the other people. 

And ofcourse there are also people who don’t want sex education be taught in schools. They are into Ney. They are the ones who believed that sex education will not lessen the cases but will just worsen it. Because if it will be teach in schools, there is a chance that childs or teens will be curious and will try engaging to sex. And also, will not take it seriously. Instead of teaching it in schools, they believed that it should be teach in their home; by their parents, their guardians. There’s a huge chance that they will listen to them more. 

And that was the reaction of the public. Either be a yey or ney, they have different stands and just aiming for good things: lessen the cases of early pregnancy, HIV and AIDS. And if sex education be really taught in schools then government should have to do it right and we, the people, in every little things possible. And if, something isn’t right then we need to look for something to get it right. But for now, let’s just help each other to teach the childs or teens or people who are not knowledgeable enough about sex and letting them realize that sex is quite a dangerous thing and should have done only by married couples with each other’s consent. 

Smoking means Dying! 

Smoking means Dying! 

Cigarettes. Oh, ring a bell? Cigarettes could hear often just like how you can see it often when you roam around public places. Cigarettes was so popular that it could even overlaps the popularity of the known celebrities. As it became popular and popular, as smokers smoking and smoking, cigarettes are killing and killing and killing and kills. 

If you go to a grocery store, you can see different brands of cigarettes. As you go on a sari-sari store there’s a high possibility that they are selling cigarettes. And if you ask sellers why, they will answer you in different form but same meaning answers. “Because it gives high sales.” That was true. Cigarettes are so marketable. Why? Because most of men population smokes. And… did I also mentioned that females too, smokes? Yes, people. It wasn’t actually that surprising already when you saw a girl who smokes. What’s surprising if a girl smokes when even a child smokes? Almost any type of people smokes. Even if you’re a child, a student, a worker, a mother, almost everyone.

Smoking is really getting out of hand. And it damage severely too. It has many bad effects. That includes: pneumonia, chronic diseases, bladder, hip fracture and many more. And if you think that’s all? You’re wrong in any way. Not only the smoker’s body can damage but also the one who inhales the smoke of the cigarette. And the damage for them are worse than a smoker could get! Because they inhale more smoke than a smoker could inhale. Also! And yes, there’s more. If a pregnant woman is smoking, it could also affect the baby’s health. So if you’re pregnant but you’re smoking? If you love your child, you better stop. I tell you. 

Smoking damage not just smoker’s body. It can also damage the life he/she is living. People may push him/her away because he/she is smoking. The smoker could also trigger a non-smoker to smoke too. It can damage not only a body but also one’s life. 

Smokers might say that smoking is just their stress-reliever that became a habit. A bad habit rather, I might say. Because having cigarette smoking as a stress reliever is a bullshit kind of idea. Stress reliever supposed to get rid of stress. But smoking cigarettes despite of smoker’s prepositions, is leading smokers and people around them to stress. And having stress, is like dying but having your body alive. 

Smoking cigarettes is not like what other think it is. Because cigarettes smoking si every bad thing. So a piece of advice to those who smokes: 

End cigarette smoking before it ends you.

 And, 

The moment you light up a cigarette, you are saying that your life isn’t worth living. (credits) 

Because,

Cigarette is slowly but continously killing you. And killing, and killing and killing and kills! You, smoker, died! 

21st century female style of clothing, to blame? 

21st century female style of clothing, to blame? 

Miniskirts, Ripped Jeans, and short shorts. Sleeveless, spaghetti straps and crop tops. These are the types of clothes that most likely to worn by the females of today’s society. They are now enough of those long skirts, simple pants and tees. But who would have thought that these female types of clothing will be the one to blame of sexual harassments that worst may lead to rape? 

We can’t change the fact that the type of clothes that are now trend on girls these days are very fashionable and quite attractive not just for the same sex but also to the boys. Boys find it very attractive when the girls shows their S-line, their cleavage and bellies that can lead for men of not controlling their sexual drives and may lead of sexual harassments to the girls.  And after that, if they’ve been caught, they’ll blame the victim. Yes everyone, victim blaming. Want to know how? They are saying that they just do that because of how that girl dress. They didn’t control their sexual drives because of how that girl dress? turns them on! And another thing, they say girls who wears shorts clothes want “it.” When did the clothes became the consent?! 

“I know you want it,” “You know that you want it.” It was painful on how people blaming the victims just because girls wear short clothes so they assumed that they want it. They were mistakenly accuse of wanting it. Gosh, who is the girl who want to be molested?! Who?! No one right?

It’s painful when the society always telling girls what should do… what should wear. That they shouldn’t wear this one because this looks undecent and blah blah. Is it the girl’s fault of wanting to be beautiful and attractive? It isn’t their fault. And it will never be! Y’all we shouldn’t blame how the girls dress because it isn’t the reason why they experience sexual harassments. Wanna know why? Because it should be the boys controlling their sexual drives! 

At the very start, if the boy really has something to do with the girl, he wouldn’t mind what that girl is wearing. Yes, it may added but it will never be the reason. Now let’s go on to the situational thing so everyone will understand what I want to imply. 

If they always insisting that it is because of how the girl dress then it would be the same as; if a man is not wearing any helmet or head gear then it gaves permission to anyone to hit him because he’s asking for it? Is it that?

Also, Maria Clara who is a character in Jose Rizal’s Noli Me Tangere experienced sexual harrasment by Padre Salvi. Let me remind you, people. Maria Clara is a character in a novel which the setting is the past, wherein women’s clothes are long skirts. But still, she experiencd sexual harassment. Besides there are lot of cases that even young childrens experienced sexual harrasments. So in the first place, again, it is not how the girls dress. It is the boys who needs to control their sexual drives. 

In conclusion, what I always emphasize is we shouldn’t blame how the girl dress when they experienced and experiencing sexual harassment. Being catcalled, touched in their private parts is never a girl’s fault. We should change the mind sets of those uncultured people who keep talking, pressuring girls of what they should, what shouldn’t wear, what should do and what they should not do. That they should be prim and proper because that is how the girl shold act. You know people, stop stopping a girl to be herself.  Stop stopping them to do what they want to do. Stop stopping them to enjoy life but instead change those uncultured people’s mindsets. Make boys control their sexual drives. Educate them. That is the only way  to stop all these sexual harrassment. And if the mindsets already changed, boys can control their sexual drives and we are all educates then we cam all live in a place where is sexual harassment-free and we could live in harmony. 

And again, 21st century female fashion style, shouldn’t be blamed. Because how the girl dress will never justify a molester/rapist’s behavior. And woman clothing will never be the consent. 

Sexual harassment is a bullying behavior, not a compliment… NOT A WOMAN’S FAULT!

Nae or Nah? 

Nae or Nah? 

안녕! 잘지냈어요? 사랑해요! (Hi! How are you? I love you!) These Korean words or phrases might be familiar to you because you can hear or see it often. And that was the effect of Kpop and Kdramas of South Korea which is so popular right now. And spreading of it is quite uncontrollable. And recently, they released a memorandum which states that Korean Languange will be teach on public schools. Nae or Nah?

Last June 21, DepEd Secretay Leonor Briones and Korean Ambassador Kim Jae Shin, together with the other officials, signed a memorandum of agreement which states that Korean Language  will be able to learn by the students of public schools. They expected those student to learn and develop their skills in reading, writing and listening the new language. And according to the Embassy, this program aims for student to have a better respond for educational and employments skills abroad.

And after the news was released, reactions of the public was divided into two.

Nae (Yes). Filipinos who reacts Nae was the type of people who has family abroad and planning to migrate there. Filipinos who wants to engage theirselves into professions which is related to tourism. And mostly of those Filipinos who have Korean Idols. Of course, why wouldn’t they? If they will learn the language then they don’t need to wait for subtitles just for them to understand their oppa’s or eonni’s! It was less hassle on them!

But of course, some aren’t agree with that memorandum. They were mad of why should it be taught when infact, our own language, our mother tounge, which is the Filipino says Hi! And the lack of knowledge in our own language is getting out of hand. Some of them, don’t evem know the differece between “nang” and “ng.” And some also, don’t use it appropriately. There were “us2 ko na mhamahtaii,” “gigil mo si acqoe,” and sometimes they replaced letter “k” with the “q.” So sad isn’t it? The language is ours but we don’t even know it. Or we know about it well but we didn’t use it the way it was supposed to be use. And oh, we know and memorized the Hangul but hey, do you even know what Baybayin is? Do you even know how to write it? I bet you can’t.

And also the English. Some Filipinos lack skills on that. So why can’t just it be Filipino and English rather than Korean?

And that was the reactions of the public. They were happy about it and some are mad.

But whatever your reaction is, whether you’re Nae or Nah, you should always respect each other’s opinion. And if you ask me if I am in Nae or Nah, well I’m more on Nah. I maybe one of those million fangirls of Kpop and Korean Dramas, I maybe a die-hard fan of those oppas, I maybe love them those idols but I love my language more. I love my country more. Yes, I’m agree of Philippines to be multilingual but if that means to be the fall of the Filipino language then, let’s just be monolingual or bilingual because of our country’s language forever! Besides, our very own National Hero Jose Rizal have said that,

While the people preserves its language, it preserves the marks of liberty.

Our Today’s Reality

Our Today’s Reality

Extrajudicial killings, usage of the drugs which was strictly prohibited in our country, massacres, poverty, corruption, crimes and the newest, the war. And when the news flash on the television, you’ll see the faces of the people who faced oppression and helplessly begging for help.

Let’s talk first about extrajudicial killing which happen here and there, and almost everywhere! Extrajudicial execution is killing of people who are said to be drug lords and pushers. And mind of the word “said” everyone. This means, with or without evidence. Some says, it’s for the country, for what we all wished and wishing, for the peace. But, have you ever imagined yourself being killed without you even have the rights to justify that you’re innocent?!

Come to think of it, guys. Let’s just dig a little deeper than how we usually think. The issue of drugs. May people are addicted to it, even teenagers! It was like drug also means addicting in dictionary. To the point that users even say that when you take or using it, they feel like they’re in heaven. Well, atleast, at first. But then, it goes otherwise. It’s not you who are taking it anymore, but it is now drugs that takes you. You are being addicted! You use it often, it uses you slowly. Then you, being unaware, commit crimes! That’s how it goes! 

Moving on, let’s go to the massacres. Which also have one of the newest news. Have ever heard the family who got killed in Bulacan? It was like doing different crime into one crime. Why? Because this massacre involved too much crime. From robbery, murder, and even rape! Going out to the massacre of the family issue, those crimes I have mentioned (rape, muder and robbery) the one who is involved and suspects were people we believe that the hope of our nation, and yes, teenagers!

Poverty, yes you’ve read it right. The children loitering in the streets begging for some coins which they say it’s for their food, teenager who is out of school youth that may even lead to teenage pregnacy, are some of the cases of poverty. In connection to this, the corruption in government. Billions of fund which should be intended for people are being corrupted by the officials we whom give trust and are votes on! And most of the time, it always went out like that!

And lastly, the war in Mindanao which was caused by Maute’s. Many peoples are killed. Many establishments are destroyed. The whole country is affected.

So many problems, and our country is experiencing all of these. But there’s one root of all these, the society’s cancer, the never-ending “Lack of Education.” Many people who was involved in those oppressed acts are lack of education. We are in a third-world country, or which they say, “developing country.” We’re trying to get up at the mud we’re stuck at. But then, we couldn’t. Why? Because aside from the problem of the lack of education, we are sellfish. We act one by one, that should be as one! We are Filipinos, living in Philippines, so we should do our very own, “bayanihan!”

On the other hand, I believe it’s not too late. We can do a change, not immediately but we will, definitely! By a process! Hand in hand, let’s all wake up to the reality where we are in, stop dreaming into some fantasies, it won’t get you something to eat! And by doing that, let’s make a change! For the better! It will become easier because we’re doing it as one and hand in hand. So let’s do it friend, because it is not yet too late. Not yet!

Extrajudicial killings, usage of the drugs which was strictly prohibited in our country, massacres, poverty, corruption, crimes and the newest, the war. The faces of oppression faced by people who are helplessly begging for help. “The country without miracles, tries to get up from the page. But the bold ink and sharp colors hold it down.” So we should try, to get up with bold ink and sharp colors, with intelligence and wisdom, hand-in-hand, heads up, “WE ARE FILIPINOS!”
