Why do searches for the words “Filipina” or “Pinay” always turn up postings for porn sites?
It’s not the same when I search for “Irish” or “Japanese” or “Malaysian”.
Through this blog, I hereby reclaim the dignity of the Filipina. I don’t have to state the reasons why Filipinas are wonderful in this post. Just read through the rest of my blog and my friends’ postings (see my blogroll). We are proof that we are more than just flesh.
Defense of a Filipina Woman's Honor by Fernando Amorsolo, 1945
Office crushes are fun!
A conversation in the office
Dirty Old Man: You remind me of women from the Fifties. When women were women. You know, like Rita Hayworth, Katharine Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe.
Me: Yeah, I’m old-fashioned… and I love those women, too. (evil grin)
D.O.M.: Whoah… wait! What did you say? You like women?
Me: I love women.
Skinny Office Geek: (nodding) She does.
Me: I like the petite, curvy, messed-up kind. Especially if they’re pale-skinned and artistic. Complete opposite of my kind of men: dark, big, geeky and nice.
Office Ursula: Yup. That’s her, all right.
Start of my shift
Crush-crush: Hi! Lookin’ good!
Me: Ahehehe… thanks. Bye!
Crush-crush heads home.
A few hours after my shift
Crush-crush: Hey. You’re the last person from the office I ran into yesterday. Now you’re the first!
Me: (dead tired, dizzy, leans towards Crush-crush)
Crush-crush: Yeah, go home. Bye!
