Kindly allow me to take this opportunity to educate and raise awareness on an issue that countless of men, women, and children face every single day: sexual harassment.
Last night, someone took the effort to make a fake account on Facebook to send me messages that are not allowed to see print.
Written in Filipino, the messages were sexually explicit.
This is a clear act of sexual harassment. Hindi ito tama. Nakakalungkot isipin na may mga taong nagkakalakas ng loob na bastusin ang iba dahil akala nila’y hindi sila makikilala. Nakakalungkot isipin ang kawalan ng respeto ng ipinapakita sa ibang tao at sa lahat ng kababaihan. Hindi ito tama.
I am currently pursuing action against this person as to not perpetuate this kind of attitude and culture. This is not an issue that we should just report, block, and move forward from. We need to actively put a stop to this. Sana ay hindi natin tularan ang mga ganitong gawain. Sana ay matuto tayo ng pahalagahan at respetuhin ang bawat isa.
If you have similar stories or any stories of sexual abuse, let me know. I am here to help and offer a safe space. We all should stick together to put an end to this disgusting abuse of sexual power. #takeitfromthesexymind
