i don't really consider myself a feminist or an activist of some sort. but i do take interest in the lgbt affairs. there was an uproar from the lgbt community about an ABS-CBN morning show anchor blaming our people for the death of two teenagers. when the news came out, i was in such a happy plane that i didn't have the expletives to express then. but am glad that we have staunch defenders in the community that mightily represented us and properly corrected all the wrong in anthony taberna's unfounded and ridiculous theory. you can read our people's say on this in these 3 posts:

he made mention that we are good in the performance arts. i made a quick check of the women i've come to personally know through this blog, and to my surprise, none belongs to the "performance arts"! hehe.
let me see, we have doctors, lawyer, writers (print, tv, online), banker, architect, manager, graphic artist, nurse, IT professionals, students, researchers, PhD grads, financial analyst. impressive demographic yeah? :) but performance artist? nada.
if being "maarte" is counted, then we have one performance maartist in me. haha. well, i do know we are performers. we excel in our fields. if not really super excel, at least we have fabulous outfits to dress the part. tee-hee!
