Hontiveros pushes for national policy to prevent teenage pregnancy

    Senator Risa Hontiveros is pushing for a national policy on the prevention of teenage pregnancy.   Hontiveros, sponsor of Senate Bill 1888 or the Prevention of Adolescent Pregnancy Act, on Saturday said the proposal would highlight the importance of informed choices when it comes to pregnancy.   "This bill has made measures to equip our children with the knowledge and guidance to make choices that they believe are the best for themselves," Hontiveros said in a statement.   Citing a 2013 study on Adult Fertility and Sexuality, Hontiveros said 23 percent of Filipino youth were already having sex before reach...Keep on reading: Hontiveros pushes for national policy to prevent teenage pregnancy.....»»

Did vagina steaming stem from the need of male validation? 

This column may contain strong language, sexual content, adult humor, and other themes that may not be suitable for minors. Parental guidance is strongly advised. There's an episode ofSex and the City in which Samantha tells the man she's currently sleeping with that his spunk tastes funky. "It's very sour like asparagus gone bad or something," she remarks, before recommending that he drink wheatgrass juice to improve the taste of his semen. While Samantha was just being true to character, her boldness in criticizing the taste of a man's ejaculate was considered unusual in a woman, at least 20 years ago whenSATCwas required watching for women everywhere. And men, then and now, were u...Keep on reading: Did vagina steaming stem from the need of male validation? .....»»

The court finally did us right when it comes to Brock Turner

This column may contain strong language, sexual content, adult humor, and other themes that may not be suitable for minors. Parental guidance is strongly advised. Sometimes, the courts uphold the right thing. I don't mean the Supreme Court of the Philippines, which chose touphold performance artist Carlos Celdran's convictionfor "offending religious feelings" during his 2010 protest at the steps of San Agustin Church.Religious feelings, it turns out, are so so easily offended, especially when the wordless protest consisted of nothing more than Celdran dressed in a black suit and hat holding up a sign that said "DAMASO." Remember when religious feelings were so easily hurt by pe...Keep on reading: The court finally did us right when it comes to Brock Turner.....»»

Gender does not apply when it comes to corruption and thirst for power

This column may contain strong language, sexual content, adult humor, and other themes that may not be suitable for minors. Parental guidance is strongly advised. If anyone needs more proof that the Philippines never quite moves forward without taking two steps backward, consider the events of the past week: In what some might deem a historic moment, the first female Speaker of the House of Representativeswas revealed when Congress opened its third and last sessionof the year ahead of the Rodrigo Duterte'sstate of the nation address. Normally, having a woman in such a powerful position should be cause for celebration.After all, women are sorely underrepresented in the Philippine Con...Keep on reading: Gender does not apply when it comes to corruption and thirst for power.....»»

The story of the Thai boys in the cave showed a different side of masculinity

This column may contain strong language, sexual content, adult humor, and other themes that may not be suitable for minors. Parental guidance is strongly advised. Like many people, I was transfixed by the perilousrescue of the 12 Thai boys belonging to the Wild Boars soccer team and their coachdeep from inside the cave they had been stranded in for over two weeks. As rescue operations were underway, I was struck by the sense of calm surrounding the massive international effort to save the boys and their coach, despite the frightening urgency of getting them out before the rains made the cave impossible to navigate. While this was clearly a male-dominated operation from start to fini...Keep on reading: The story of the Thai boys in the cave showed a different side of masculinity.....»»

A man is sentenced to death and it’s likely because of his sexuality

This column may contain strong language, sexual content, adult humor, and other themes that may not be suitable for minors. Parental guidance is strongly advised. We do live in a f*cked up world. As womenfinally gain the right to drive in Saudi Arabia---a welcome development that hopefully will be an inexorable step towards female emancipation in one of the most restrictive societies in the world---a court in South Dakota sentenced a gay man to death rather than life in prison because the thought of being amidst so many men might be a reward rather than punishment for the convicted man.

How we talk about the Royal Wedding reveal how we view marriage

This column may contain strong language, sexual content, adult humor, and other themes that may not be suitable for minors. Parental guidance is strongly advised. No sooner had Prince Harry and Meghan Markle wed that people started to wager that the marriage wouldn't last. We demanded the fairy tale, we yearned for the romance, we were absorbed by the spectacle, yet once the ceremony was over, the post-mortem began. "I give them five years," said one friend. "Maybe ten," said another. "The Queen doesn't like her, it won't last." "Kate doesn't like her, it won't last." "It's an interracial marriage. The odds are against them." And so on and so forth.

What Is the Reason Behind Dating Unattractive Men?

This column may contain strong language, sexual content, adult humor, and other themes that may not be suitable for minors. Parental guidance is strongly advised. What is it with Playboy bunnies and politicians buying their silence? As scandal upon scandal reveals the irredeemable baseness of men who present themselves as anti-hypocrisy crusaders, it's impossible not to notice their propensity to date and sometimes impregnate Playboy playmates. Which then results in money changing hands not exactly for services already rendered, however willingly, but for mouths to remain shut. So not only did Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen pay off Stormy Daniels, the porn star, to ...Keep on reading: What Is the Reason Behind Dating Unattractive Men?.....»»

The Pettiness of Men and Where Their Competitive Nature Takes Them

This column may contain strong language, sexual content, adult humor, and other themes that may not be suitable for minors. Parental guidance is strongly advised. Oh, the pettiness of men. Centuries of gender conditioning have codified certain kinds of qualities as typically male or typically female, a mentality that continues to inform how we regard men and women and expect them to behave. To men, it should come as no surprise to know, it is bestowed upon such attributes as bravery, integrity, strength, practicality, and substance, while women are often characterized as the weaker, flightier, more superficial and less intelligent sex, dominated by their emotions. Men, on the o...Keep on reading: The Pettiness of Men and Where Their Competitive Nature Takes Them.....»»

Lack of Sexual Education and Awareness Goes Beyond Unwanted Pregnancies

This column may contain strong language, sexual content, adult humor, and other themes that may not be suitable for minors. Parental guidance is strongly advised. Oftentimes, single but presumably sexually active women of a certain age have a role to play within a group of friends, most of whom are married: that of the storyteller of escapades through which the others may live vicariously because, well, the kind of married sex they are having is stale, unpredictable, or non-existent. A friend of mine was telling me recently how she met up with some high school classmates who begged her to impart her quite formidable sexual wisdom. "Give us some sex tips!" they said. She started...Keep on reading: Lack of Sexual Education and Awareness Goes Beyond Unwanted Pregnancies.....»»

What Role Does Trauma Play in the 'MeToo Campaign?

This column may contain strong language, sexual content, adult humor, and other themes that may not be suitable for minors. Parental guidance is strongly advised. There's no doubt that we are currently experiencing a watershed moment, ushered in, whether one wants to acknowledge it or not, the #MeToo movement. More and more women are speaking up, sharing their experiences, signaling not just their frustration with the rape culture that continues to insinuate itself into social, sexual, and professional interactions between men and women, but also their refusal to pander to that culture any longer. A woman speaking up is a powerful thing. And because women's voices have been mut...Keep on reading: What Role Does Trauma Play in the #MeToo Campaign?.....»»

Women’s Sexual Desires Were Once Considered a Mental Condition Called Hysteria

This column may contain strong language, sexual content, adult humor, and other themes that may not be suitable for minors. Parental guidance is strongly advised. One of the most enduring---and unjust---tropes about women is their essential shallowness. For centuries, men were held up as the intellectuals, the athletes, the achievers, the masters. They discussed politics and world affairs, ran governments, made scientific discoveries, wrote philosophical treatises and great literature. Women, on the other hand, were creatures of lesser substance, relegated to what was considered the less important work of birthing babies, raising children, cooking meals, running homes. Men were ra...Keep on reading: Women’s Sexual Desires Were Once Considered a Mental Condition Called Hysteria.....»»

Why It Took 156 Women to Bring Down Larry Nassar

This column may contain strong language, sexual content, adult humor, and other themes that may not be suitable for minors. Parental guidance is strongly advised. The #MeToo movement has been alternately praised, reviled, lauded, ridiculed, dismissed, and hailed as necessary. Whatever one might think of #MeToo, there's no doubt that it's given women everywhere a voice, a platform to be heard, listened to, and---finally---believed. For centuries, a woman's word was always doubted. A woman's version of events was always considered unreliable. A woman's complaint was always given less importance than a man's. Women were hysterical, prone to flights of fantasy, and were vindictive ...Keep on reading: Why It Took 156 Women to Bring Down Larry Nassar.....»»

Aziz Ansari and the Dynamics of Sex Between Men and Women

This column may contain strong language, sexual content, adult humor, and other themes that may not be suitable for minors. Parental guidance is strongly advised. It started out as a familiar scenario. Boy meets girl, they flirt, they go out, they make out. So far so ho-hum. Then girl decides she feels violated, goes home, and dishes out on her satisfactory sexual encounter with boy to an online magazine, complete with details of boy's sexual repertoire. The boy, of course, is the celebrity comedian and actor Aziz Ansari. The girl, in a desire to remain anonymous, is known as "Grace." She claims he didn't heed her verbal and non-verbal cues. He claims he was sure their encounte...Keep on reading: Aziz Ansari and the Dynamics of Sex Between Men and Women.....»»

A Woman’s Virginity Does Not Define Her

This column may contain strong language, sexual content, adult humor, and other themes that may not be suitable for minors. Parental guidance is strongly advised. The Christmas myth is centered around the notion of gift-giving at the purest and most exalted level. God so loved the world that he gave his only son and all that. Joseph so loved Mary that he married a pregnant single woman about to have the child whose father was reputedly not human but divine to save her from shame---you know the drill. And Mary so loved the Lord that she agreed to carry his child---he was going to save the world, after all---without giving up her virginity to anyone who was merely mortal.

Sexual Misconduct Is Never a Laughing Matter, But Why Is it Always a Joke?

This column may contain strong language, sexual content, adult humor, and other themes that may not be suitable for minors. Parental guidance is strongly advised. No, not you, Al Franken! And not you too, George Takei! Our reactions to men, whether gay or straight, outed as sexual predators or harassers or molesters, as in the case of Roy Moore, has more or less been that of uniform horror, disgust and head-shaking "I knew it!" Harvey Weinstein? Oh, we think, he's fat and unattractive and crass, though rich and powerful. No wonder. Bill O'Reilly? Oh, he's with Fox News, that sexist, misogynistic network that functions as an apologist for the Republican agenda. No wonder.
