“A REAL MAN knows how to respect women!” – Mar Roxas

With the issues about Duterte’s womanizing antics, bayot remarks, “maid lang naman” viral video and his hateful comments towards Cotabato Gov. Lala Taliño-Mendoza, who made an appeal in a press conference to stop politicians from using the rice donation issue for publicity. The infamous Davao City mayor commented:  “May gusto akong sabihin kay Lala. P. I. mo, wala akong pakialam dyan leche ka ha.”

It is clear to see that Digong doesn’t look at men, women and members of the LGBT community equally.

Here’s an excerpt from Mar Roxas’ recent interview to answer Duterte:

“Ang tunay na lalaki, hindi maingay. Ang tunay na lalaki, hindi tawag-pansin. Ang tunay na lalaki, may respeto. Ang tunay na lalaki, kilala ang kanyang limitasyon. Subalit sa iyong pagiging egotistic, sa iyong pagiging self-absorbed sa mundo na tinitirhan mo na ikaw lang ang nakakaunawa, limitado kasi, hindi mo ito nakikita.”

Name-calling is a favorite past time of Duterte and his die-hard supporters these days. How sad.

Here’s Mar Roxas’ take on the ‘bayot’ and ‘bakla’ issue:

“By the way, narating na rin natin siguro ‘yung limitasyon ng iyong utak at ng iyong bokabyularyo. ‘Nung isang araw, tawag mo sakin, bayot. Kahapon naman, tawag mo sa amin, sa gobyernong ito, bakla. Eh di ba tinranslate mo lang sa tagalog ‘yung bisaya? Hanggang diyan nalang ba ang bokabyularyo mo? Wala ka na bang maisip na ibang salita?”

He also promised he will not bow down and will continue to fight Duterte in a civilized manner:

“At hindi ako papayag na dadalhin mo [Duterte] ang ating bansa sa alanganin, sa kapahamakan. Nandito ako, lalabanan kita, Mayor Duterte.”

Mar Roxas may not be perfect, but at least the guy has a plan and he is decent in handling issues thrown against him. I’d rather have a president whom my kids can look up to than let a bully run this country. May God Bless Us!
