To be honest, Filipinas here do not project a good-fine-image. And they think everyone is the same just because of being a Filipina. If you ask them why, they will tell you their honest reason : Filipinas abroad are easy to get, just show them your money and they will certainly hook up with you. That’s a very sad statement, isn’t it? But sometimes, no matter how I defend them, I couldn’t help but to agree. I’ve seen women like that here, and what makes me sad is that they are my fellow Filipinas. Yet, I still do not blame them. There must be reason behind it.
I had a one on one talk with my husband when he was still courting me. I asked him why me when he can get “friendly” with his fellow Indian women. He said : I find you different…. Okay, I’m not bragging here. That’s what he really told me. But that’s not it, there was a continuation…
I find you different…. I have a confession to make, I never liked Filipinas because of the image that they have here, until I met you… You made me realize that everyone is not the same. Thus, the logic of “having ten different fingers”.
We had “our usual talks” last week. Unfortunately, after being together for almost 8 years now – till this date, some of his fellowmen are still questioning him : Why did you marry a Filipina? And he would answer them with pride “my wife is different, if you have a problem with that, I can’t help you solve it!” He uttered this line (again) just few days ago.
What I’m trying to say is that “if there is one person like my husband who can justify that Filipinas are not whores and gold diggers, then maybe we could change people’s minds and finally re-shape the Filipinas’ image“.
Here’s my message to those who judge us:
Mind your own business. You don’t know exactly where we have come from. Until that day when you finally found out, just shut your mouths up! And when that day comes, come to us and apologize and we will forgive you for misjudging us. That’s how we truly are – forgiving, loving, God-fearing, humble and of course don’t forget that we are sexy! 😉
