Vice Ganda lambasts Senate President Tito Sotto.

VICE GANDA – The Kapamilya artist and host Vice Ganda lambasted the concept of the Senate President Tito Sotto about womanhood in line with the issues about the SOGIE Bill.

One of the most talked-about issues in the country today is the passing of the SOGIE Bill authored by Sen. Risa Hontiveros and supported by some senators such as Senators Imee Marcos and Christopher “Bong” Go. This is following the controversies of Gretchen Diez who was reportedly harassed by not being allowed to use the woman’s restroom.

Vice Ganda, Catriona GrayPia Wurtzbach, and Anne Curtis were among the famous celebrities who are also in favor of this bill supporting the underlying thought of the bill about equality and respect no matter what the gender is. Even President Duterte is also in favor of building third bathrooms for the LGBT people.

Meanwhile, the Senate President Tito Sotto firmly objects about the passing of the said bill as it is according against the rights of the woman. He expressed, “I hate to say this but I have to, If you are a man, you will never be a woman, no matter what you do, because you cannot reproduce. You cannot give birth, you do not have ovaries. You will never be a woman. So this, to me, the SOGIE bill is a bill against women’s rights.”

And this was slammed by Vice Ganda. In an Instagram post the Kapamilya artist stated that womanhood is not just being measured by having ovaries and the capability to reproduce. He even cited those woman who got their ovaries removed because of some complication, some deciding not to get pregnant due to personal reasons, and those who were medically advised not to be pregnant due to medical reasons. To which, his concept of womanhood, have made these woman mentioned less of a woman just because.

Joke po ba ito Hon. Senate President Tito Sotto ??? Sinasabi nyo po ba na naniniwala kayo na ang pagiging BABAE ay nasusukat lamang sa pagkakaroon ng obaryo o matris at sa kakayahan lang na mabuntis o magka-anak? E paano po yung mga nagkaroon ng matinding karamdaman at tinanggalan ng obaryo? Di na po ba sila BABAE? Wala na ba silang karapatang tawaging BABAE? O bumaba na ba ang uri ng kanilang PAGKAKABABAE? Paano din po yung mga baog at walang kakayahang magka-anak? Ano po sila? Di na din sila BABAE? Mga wala na ba silang kwentang mga BABAE? At paano naman po yung mga BABAENG choice nila na wag mag-anak dahil ayaw nila dahil sa kanilang mga personal na rason? Di na din ba sila matatawag na BABAE? Paano din po yung mga BABAE na may obaryo pero pinayuhang wag magbuntis dahil sa medikal na kondisyon at maaring mameligro ang kanilang buhay? Di na din sila BABAE? Ano na po sila? Paano din po yung mga BABAENG may obaryo pero wala pang anak dahil ayaw naman nilang magpatira kung kani kanino? Ano na sila? Parang ang baba naman po pala ng tingin nyo sa mga BABAE. Naniniwala po ako na ang mga BABAE ay BABAE di dahil sa obaryo at sa kakayahang bumukaka at umire. Sila ay BABAE dahil sila ay BABAE. At MAY HALAGA sila may matris man o wala, magbuntis man o hindi,may anak man o wala dahil sila ay ay TAO at sila ay BABAE. Sinubukan ninyong maliitin ang konsepto ng pagiging TRANSGENDER sa paraang tinapakan nyo rin ang dignidad ng mga tinatawag nyong TOTOONG BABAE. Paumanhin po HON. SENATE PRESIDENT Sotto. Pero i believe this statement is just not fair. There are people who pretend to be FEMINISTS to hide their being MISOGYNISTS.
