Virginity, extra-maritals, Masturbation and Porn

Posted in Uncategorized on May 30, 2009 by Rica Cristina Baldomar

It is a sad fact that we live in a sexist society. In this said society, double standards are the norm and what is looked upon as something a man would be proud would be a woman’s downfall.

Take virginity for instance. Men are expected to lose theirs sometime in their teens but women are only to be rid of them once they are married.

There is also the idea of extra-marital affairs. It is considered normal for men to keep a mistress and they are praised for otherwise keeping their fidelity. but should a woman stray and decide to keep a lover she is looked upon with disgust by society and is made an outcast.

Masturbation. It’s normal for boys to do it and is even expected of them. But have you ever heard a girl openly admitting that she masturbates? I seriously doubt it.

Porn. It’s a given that the male genders watch porn. Nobody raises an eyebrow when they see men (boys) watching, buying, downloading, borrowing, etc. porn. Have a woman doe the same thing and I doubt she’ll get through the ordeal unscathed.

It’s sad. Makes you think, doesn’t it?

Sex Videos and the News

Posted in Uncategorized on May 25, 2009 by Rica Cristina Baldomar

I don’t like to watch the news and tonight, I’m reminded why. On tv they were discussing Haydon Kho and Katrina Halili’s sex video. By the way they were going on you would think that some catastrophe happened or that there was coup de etat or something of equal gravity.

The thing about it here is that it is just a sex video. Thousands of videos are made each month yet we don’t raise an eyebrow and here comes this video about some actress and a plastic surgeon’s lover and the country goes haywire.

I am appalled at the idea that  people have used said video to have to the limelight centered on them. What is wrong with you sick people? There are things out there that more important than a movie of two attractive people getting it on! The news is sensationalizing something which should be left alone! What makes it worse is that they have dragged politicians into the whole sordid deal.

It’s a sad day indeed when scandals matter more than real news. A sad day indeed.
