Why Heterosexuals Should Not Talk about Homosexuality

Tolerance and Acceptance

Tolerance and Acceptance

Well, this a bit late but I’ve been getting a lot of emails asking about my view on Tintin Bersola’s “Being Gay” article.

Originally, I want nothing to do with the article because obviously Tintin does not have any idea about how to raise a gay kid, partly because she is a straight parent.

This is why straight people should never talk about gayness and homosexuality. Why? Because they have no inkling what gay people go through everyday. You can argue that you have lots of gay friends but that does not give you a deeper insight on the issues, concerns, and problems of the gay community.

With that being said, we appreciate the effort of the heterosexual conmunity to discuss the topic but unless you are careful with your words, you’d end up offending a lot of gay people, just ask Miriam Quiambao. 🙂

I’m fortunate enough to have a family that tolerates and accepts my gayness. Unfortunately, there are millions out there that still suffer from the brunt of having homophobic parents and growing in a homophobic family and community. The humiliation, the pain, and the reproach still remains.

If you really wanna help us, then just accept us for who we are.


Ruffa Gutierrez and Derek Ramsay: Romance made in London?

Ruffa and Derek, making sweet music together?

With Angelica Panganiban moving up and about with her life after breakup with Kapamilya turned Kapatid, Derek Ramsay, the actor is rumored to follow suit, and the lucky girl, TV5 Princess Ruffa Gutierrez!

Ruffa and Derek had a chance meeting in London during the London Olympics. Ruffa was with her daughter Lorin and Venice while Derek was on official news duty as TV5 sports correspondent.

The chance encounter is rumored to be steadily growing into something bigger, with heartbroken (?) Derek possibly finding love with a slightly older Ruffa.

If the rumor mill is true, this could play out like one of those Korean teleserye’s we Filipinos are so fond of.

Who knows, maybe, just maybe, Derek could turn out to be the one for Ruffa.

Both exceedingly good-lookin and equally successful individuals, Ruffa and Derek does make a perfect couple.

Let’s just wait and see.
