Yahoo News PH ran a story on the rapid increase of HIV infections here in the Philippines. The news was sad:

“New cases of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in the country reached an all-time high of 204 in July this year, the highest number of new cases recorded by the Department of Health (DOH) in a month to date. The virus is now infecting seven Filipinos every 24 hours, up from last year’s average of five new HIV patients daily.”

But look at the comments the posting got from its readers:

CLAY: “ang solusyon dyan ay isa lang, PATAYIN ANG LAHAT NG BAKLA SA PILIPINAS. nyahaha”

EXPULSION: “Yan ang parusa ng dyos sa mga bading. Kahit kailan, kahit anong talino nyo kuno! Hindi kayo puwedeng sumuway sa utos ng dyos. Remember Sodom & Gomora.”

PAUL: “99.17% HINDI INOSENTE. TUMITIRA KASI NG KAHIT SINO. REGALO NI SATANAS YAN PARA DUN SA MGA TAONG HINDI INOSENTE.”

MAR: “wala kasi kulong sa ganyan tipo ng immorality so i think yan ang katapat na parusa..so beware.”

MERCILESS DUDE: “Led by none other than the gays who always shout “discrimination”. Come to think of it, what good things are they contributing to humanity?”

WEAPON_Z: “Yung mga nagka-AIDS dahil sa sex, buti nga sa kanila. Be faithful kasi. Wag tira ng tira. Magsarili na lang kayo. Mas safe pa. Pero yung mga nahawa dahil sa blood transfer, don’t give up guys, I pray that you will be healed soon.”

MICHAEL: “I know a lot of people won’t want to hear this, but it doesn’t mean its not true: ‘Its God’s way of saying: may mali sa ginagawa niyo.'”

AUDEMARS: “tama! sana dumating ang panahon na makapagpasa ng batas para gawing legal ang pagpaslang sa mga homosexuals. They are disgrace to humanity. nakakadiri pinaggagagawa nila. I’m a Christian and we were thought to love the pokpoks and the homos. but it is so hard cause they keep on doing the same old dirty things, pathetic disgusting creatures! ugh.”

    what? you are a Christian and you said that kind of words??? very alarming!!! si Lord na bahala sayo.
    It just struck my attention, cause YOU label yourself as a Christian and YOU have that kind of perception! sad, very sad ๐Ÿ™

    Wala silang ka alam alam… makapag salita parang alam nila ang lahat behind that… pag ba sinabing HIV gay/bi agad? hindi ba pwedeng dahil sa BLOOD TRANSFUSION?? Mag isip nga sila… wew!!! ๐Ÿ‘ฟ

    The very idea of killing gays on the grounds that we’re not contributing anything to humanity struck me the most.

    If that’s the case, I think that guy who commented that should be killed a painful death. Does he really think posting suck remark is a “contribution to humanity”? I don’t think so. Just my two cents. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I did some web surfing and I discovered this..

    Just like x-men, most of the “human” extremists against mutants were related to mutants themselves. Victor creed, the human villain in x-men, was the son of saber-tooth and mystique in the comics and had a mutant son in the movie. Even though it’s just fictional, it reflects the society that we are in today.

    Adolf Hitler was rumored to have Jewish ancestry and even though it’s just rumors, he doesn’t look as Aryan as the Germanic race he associates himself with. Members of the KKK in the US were mostly uneducated white supremacists who are just simply white trash who’s only source of esteem is to make others feel inferior of their race. Even the Zobels, Lopez’s and Cojuancos, who are some of the wealthiest and most powerful family clans in the Philippines had ancestors who were victims of discrimination, racism, sexism and political injustice which is almost the complete opposite of their descendants.

    I was angry at first because I was really affected and I felt like retaliating but i realize that I’m becoming just like them. I believe they are victims themselves but chose to uplift their egos by bashing on other people which is completely selfish and chauvinistic. We should always think and act for the benefit of everyone not just for the benefit of our group, our family or ourselves.

    Make me a channel of your peace.
    Where there is hatred let me bring your love;
    Where there is injury your pardon, Lord;
    And where there’s doubt true faith in you.

    Oh, Master grant that I may never seek
    So much to be consoled as to console;
    To be understood as to understand;
    To be loved as to love with all our soul.

  12. bookie said on 13-10-2011

    How disheartening. I keep telling myself that society is slowly beginning to open its mind to the idea of homosexuality… tapos makakakita ka ng ganitong mga komento. Especially the one statement asking what we contribute to society. Ignorance has such an ugly face.

    I think it’s that time again to raise awareness to the filipinos what HIV is and educating them about studies in homosexuality. Time and time again, there has been stories that have been told through the media, be it through tv ads and campaigns or through documentary. Pero at the end, there are still those people who are uneducated and bluntly, just ignorant about it. It’s about time for the filipino gay community to step up and be heard! I wish there could be a way we can reach out to the masses mainly on mainstream tv about HIV awareness. This is a serious issue. Not a laughing matter. Our goal as gays is to let people be aware of the disease and mainly let the masses know what it means to be a homosexual and that HIV/AIDS is not a “gay disease”. It might be a daunting task, I know it’s been done before, but it’s time for us to be heard and fight for our right. We might have to do it over and over again, but it is what it is. If only we have gay channels like the LOGO channel here in the US where they can run ads for AIDS & HIV awareness. I wish there was a way we can be that progressive of a country. I’m desperate! We have to be heard one way or another.

    OMG! I’ve been reading your blog Migs for quite some time and this is the FIRST time I’ve made a comment! I just couldn’t take what I’ve read! THOSE WHO MADE HARSH REMARKS ARE SOOOOO STUPID AND IGNORANT! They didn’t even made a research on WHO can really be infected with the said disease! YOU CAN GET IT ONCE YOU’RE SEXUALLY ACTIVE! DAMN! Homosexuals may be part of it but why blame it all on us??? AND I HATE IT THAT ONE EVEN SAID THAT HE IS A CHRISTIAN… a CHRISTIAN WITH SHALLOW MIND!!! I am not making a hasty generalization. This is just about THAT DAMN IGNORANT CHRISTIAN! And the one who said about SODOM & GOMORRAH, FYI! That story in the Bible isn’t just about sodomy! There’s more to it than that! Have you actually read that story??? UGGH! I’m SO pissed and affected by this! Like you Migs,”nanikip ang dibdib ko sa mga comments”…

    It’s just sad that there are really shallow minded people and we can’t do anything about it. Battle for EQUALITY is still a long way. What we can do is to stand up for ourselves… For our gay-being… that we’d be respected, if not all, but at least by some. Like how Migs promote it… LOVE YOURSELF ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. Edgar Portalan said on 13-10-2011

    Harsh are the comments … but I can’t help but nod my head in agreement … blame it on the stereotypical images of gays in several multimedia … and some statistics that shows most of the affected , if not all , HIV patients are gays … call it stigma … can’t blame them because they’re just too ignorant and uneducated to the true nature of homosexuality … so the ball is in our hands … it is up for us to change and show to them that they are so wrong about their social perception for PLU … but I know how hard it is to be the way they want us to be … talking about better said than done … hayzzzz … sala sa init sala sa lamig … we can’t just please everyone … so how should I feel ? … should I feel hatred and anger ? … of course not … I feel pity and sadness for them … for they just don’t know what they are saying … ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

  18. Closer2Fame said on 13-10-2011

    Sorry, stressed ako last night tapos eto maabutan kong post haaay…

    Actually, I want to answer each and everyone of their hateful incriminating ignorant questions because I can but your right..
    It is just a waste to even bother…

    Diabetes can kill or Lung cancer can kill but I don’t see them condemning sugar munchers or chain smokers to hell…

    Herpes simplex virus1 or “cold sore” can be an STD and cause schizophrenia but no one considers it deadly because 80% of us has it and only a few people dies from it…

    Just because we defy the beliefs of our religion which are the ideology of people from more than 2000 years ago doesn’t mean that it still applies to all of us up to now..

    Just because we are part of the change doesn’t mean that the change is for the worse..

    It would be hard to change their minds as adults but we can all help program the minds of their children through a good Multimedia marketing… even if we have to do some below-the-line marketing( I haven’t figured this one yet).

    Broccoli is a highly nutritious delicious vegetable. It is a common idea that children instinctively hate broccoli..
    But according to recent studies..
    You can train/teach a child to love broccoli and
    majority of the children who hate broccoli actually learned to hate it by seeing the depiction of media about children hating broccoli and how they are forced to eat it against their will..

    If this is true.. then Gay discrimination or intolerance is caused by media…

    Advertising and TV productions should NOT discriminate gay people as part of a major story line or as leads of the story… They should lessen or stop putting gay themes as part of the comic relief!

    We are people too..
    We can be more than the stereotypical gay members of society..
    We can also be way deeper than that..

    We can be anyone..
    We can be successful..
    We can be accepted..
    We can be loved.
    We just have to break the cliche and let people know all those beautiful good things about us.

    We have the power to do that through Media!

    yeah dude,tama…nakakainis yan comment na yan,anyway di naman sila diyos para sabihin lahat yan mga yan.

  20. viking said on 13-10-2011

    Wala namang masama sa data; expected yan na tataas dahil dumarami na ang nag papatest (assumption: dati ng mataas ang cases ng HIV kaya lang mababa ang reported cases in prior periods kasi takot pa ang mga tao mag pa test); my point now is – pasalamat tayo sa MGG and sa ibang projects na nag hihkayat na mag pa test tayo, kasama na education tungkol sa HIV; MGG, maraming salamat sa mga tulad niyo na naglalaan ng oras sa kampanya…

    sa comments naman: huwag tayong magalit, dati ng ganyan ang tanaw sa mga bakla; ibig lang sabihin nito: inde pa sapat ang kampanya tungkol sa edukasyon ng HIV; huwag mawawalan ng loob, dahil alam natin na mas marami pa ang matutulongan nang kampanya on HIV awareness/education.

    Their way of thinking is the root of it all!!!!!

    This is the thinking of people from the middle ages that has been passed on from generation to generation!!!!!!!!!!!!

    We have to desensitize everyone with this thinking so that we would be able to stop the root cause of the problem!!!!!!!!!!!! ๐Ÿ‘ฟ

    as much as I want to elaborate on the topic…
    ang hirap pala mag isip pag galit..hahaha ๐Ÿ˜†

      Guys!!!! let do our part in educating every1 .. spread the word.. we should create a good image of ourselves to counter all these negative publicity about us which is the precursor of society’s stigma towards the next generation.. Let us save the future.. the change should start from us.. Unity will give us the power to change the culture of our race!

  24. KGG said on 13-10-2011

    While reading the results stats and the comments above which are really alarming, I couldnt help myself think Ganoon na ba kabilis ang spreading of this disease not to mention the blame are always single out “bakla” bakit kaya? baka naman kasi may rason – maybe we can take a look on the cases of HIV/Aids patients.

    On the other hand,look on the cases sa ibang bansa naman so we can figure it out but of course no need of comparison – wala naman magagawa yan. Its all about awareness at konting ingat kung hindi talaga mapigilan. kaya nga we PLU’s must maintain the respect that we need from the society,How? in everyday that we do umayos sana tayo ng kilos kasi po tayo lagi ang nakikita, mahirap but thats hows we are going to fight in our daily lives. ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Closer2Fame said on 13-10-2011

      I agree.. I do have have an opinion at the tip of my tongue.. I’m just too stressed with these negative comments which just shows how narrow minded and judgemental are the members of society that we’re in… haaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyZZ!!!! M%tha&%$#@#$%^&*(*&^% psychopaths!!! ๐Ÿ‘ฟ

      • KGG said on 13-10-2011

        @Closer – Actually natawa lang ako kasi marami pa pala sa atin dyan na hindi pa oriented sa ganyang klase ng sakit at kung papaano nakukuha. I was even bothered with the numbers – 7 Filipinos every 24 hrs and that is something really – Ibig sabihin you dont know if one of your friend is safe or not esp kung polygamous pa sya.

    @ AUDEMARS – “taught” po, hindi “thought”. and you dare call yourself a Christian? your behavior contradicts your belief. You have no right to judge other people because you too are sinful. you are even lower than a creature.

  31. guyrony said on 12-10-2011

    Migs, then we know we can make the change. Advocacy is still in its infancy but with the help, support, and the proper information dissemination, then these topics would be dwindling, and also for those hate messages.

    We strive and thrive to advocate what is right, or perhaps what may ultimately salvage us.

    Perhaps these people who judge what they hear are people who needs to be communicated at par with those who have AIDS.

  33. Tyrone said on 12-10-2011

    Let me give one unbiased view. First, some comments show lack of understanding about the desease and discrimination. Gays are not the only one who can get infected by HIV AIDS. No sex or individual is immune from the virus that turns to HIV AIDS. Those who commented condemning the gays for having acquired the decease, then why not condemn also those who are straight both male or female who acquired the decease thru sex? It seems to me that those who made comments condemning the gay people are of pure morality and chastity. Prove to us that indeed you are in all respect!

    Second, the spread of decease is obviously caused by having unprotected sex among gay people. Whenever I am in a spa.. You will really be shock witnessing how 2 gay people ventured into so sexual adventurism at the sauna or steam bath without any protection. It seems that gay people pay no attention to the desease that they may acquire for having an unprotected sex. They appears to me that they don’t care if they will acquire the decease. With such mentality… I would surmise that you don’t love your self…always remember Love your self.. Because if you don’t no one will love you
