Korina asks Duterte to stop jesting about women: “Lahat na lang ba ay biro”


During Business forum of President Rodrigo Duterte in India, he made a joke about his strategy on how to keep tourists coming in the Philippines by using 42 virgins like what Muslims extremists do to attract followers in promise of 42 virgins once they got to heaven.
This joke Duterte is not appealing to the ears of Broadcaster Korina Sanchez and finds it offensive for a woman like her. Sanchez posted her opinion on social media about the issue.
“Baka naman puwedeng itigil na ang mga ganyang biro. Lagi na lang nalalagay sa sitwasyon na kagamitan lang ng lalaki ang mga babae (Can we end this kind of joke? Women are always put in a situation where men see them as a tool) , she said.

“Just a joke’ o kaya’y ‘Said in jest’ na naman ang paliwanag ng Palasyo. Lahat na lang ba ay biro, ‘said in jest,’ kapag mga babae na ang pinag-uusapan? (‘I bet, the Palace would say, ‘Just a joke’ or ‘Said in jest’. Is everything a joke, when it comes to women?)” Sanchez asked.

Because of this, Korina can’t stop her self to wonder if the Indian Businessmen, who laughed at Duterte’s joke, recalled the rape incidents and sexual violence happened in the their country few years ago, like what happened to Juoti Singh in 2012, who eventually died.

“Dapat nga siguro may nagpaalala sa mga negosyanteng Indiyano na nagtawanan sa mga insidente ng panggagahasa sa kanilang bansa (I think someone has to remind the Indian Businessmen about the rape incident happened in their country).” Korina said.
