mga main event ng buhay at lipunan

masama sya magalit

ang pangyayaring ito ay nangyari noong ika-15 ng abril alas dos ng madaling araw.

galing ang lola nyo sa overtime at naglalakad na sa may waiting shed ng ayala cebu para maghintay ng taxi. while on the way at kumikembot, may umakbay na lalaki sabay tutok ng kanyang... kutsilyo. may isa pang kasama sya na hinipu-an ako. parang tunog rape. sana nga rape na lang yun. hold up ang trip ng mga kampon ng demonyong yun. may dialogue pa ang mga gago, "relax ka lang, direstso ug lakaw, masama akong magalit". ang pangit siguro nya. obvious tuloy na di bisaya ang ang mga ugok. leche nila. basta yun na at ayoko nang idetalye masyado. traumatic. tinangay ang cellphone at konting pera. konti lang, di naman kasi ma-anda ang lola nyo. nagka temporary insomnia(meron bang ganun?) ako after that. umaga na nang nakatulog.

pero dahlin, di yan ang main event. syempre spread the news ang bakla after. "buti hindi ka pinatay". "may pera ka pa ba?". "mag-ingat ka na ha". yan ang mga sympathetic na statements galing sa mga sympathetic na mga tao sa paligid. salamat talaga. pero ang di ko inasahan ay may magbigay nga statement na,"baka umiiwas ka lang sa obligasyon at ayaw mo na magbigay". hurt akez. hurt na hurt kasi galing ang statement na yan sa mother ko. ouchness...

nagpagod na nga sa OT ginagawan pa ng kwento...*sigh*

baby out

another buzz that has been running around the internet and street corners was the misbehavior of the medical staff of vicente sotto memorial medical center.

i need not rewrite whatever happened in that video. the supposed professional staff who were handling the patient were inhumane and ugly.

eh kasi bakla

another punch was recently done to the patient and the lgbt community and it was done by the church. they(the church) blamed the patient that resulted in him being placed in a very humiliating position instead of calling for medical practitioners to treat their patients with respect and justice for the patient.

i cannot help but notice that the church is tolerating and even promoting homophobia. i also cannot help but compare when someone spilled out the details of the zte scandal, they rained him with praises, prayers and masses but now when someone got publicly taunted and humiliated by the people whom he trusted his life with, the church did not only turned its back but also blamed the one who was abused. i am not saying that the zte scandal was irrelevant but we cannot just give a blind eye when someone gets stoned by people and the church, who happens to be the protectors of the weak, would also pick up a stone and play along. maybe their parents forgot to tell them that when you have nothing good to say, don't say anything at all.

para tuloy syang nahold-up tapos sya pa ang sinisi ng kanyang nanay (ay bitter pa rin ang lola nyo...chos).

the names

as of the moment, investigations have produced several names of those who were in the OR in the time of operation. they were head surgeon Dr. Phillips Leo Arias; assistant surgeons Dr. Angelo Linawagan and Dr. Max Joseph Montecillo; nursing attendant Rosemarie Villareal; and circulating nurse Carmina Sapio. These were the staff who should have only been there conducting the operation, which means that investigators are expecting more names to come up as the probing continues.

although it may be not clear in the video that these key people participated in making fun of the victim, it is clear that they failed to follow protocol and preserve the dignity of the patient. the named personnel are still serving vsmmc but are transferred to wards and given limited access to hospital facilities. vsmmc is prepared to file administrative case and only that since they are not willing to let the named staff go stating the shortage of personnel as reason. the patient and his lawyer, however have told the media that they may also be filing criminal charges to responsible staff and could include the hospital if the hospital administrators refuse to cooperate.

these young medical practitioners may be able to help out more people through their craft but they crossed the line and crossed it way too far. someone has to pay. well we hope that justice be served and may the punishment fit the crime.

i admire your outlook sa buhay. kasi kahit nahold up ka na't lahat plus yung sinabi pa sa iyo ng nanay mo, tapos yung nang yayari pa sa paligid mo, ang simbahan, gobyerno, lipunan etc etc etc, you still remain happy and gay!

Amping na lang gyod. Prayer for safety helps. Kaluoy pod sa tawo nga nang-holdup no? Luoy siya kay siya ang nakasala.

I admire the way you see things. That 's very inspiring.

i think you have the right to be hurt. that was insensitive, i must agree. pero wag pa rin magagalit sa kanya ha? kasi nanay mo sya. mainis ka sa binitiwan nyang salita, wag sa kanya.
