But here’s the most eyebrow-raising part: “Having the balls to rape somebody when you know you’re going to die.” Really, Mr. President?
Do you want to know what kind of man is worthy of applause? Someone who respects a woman and doesn’t see her as an object. The ones who are fighting nobly for the country and its people. Most especially those who are willing to let go of their machismo and ego.
You don’t congratulate someone for having the balls to rape. You incarcerate them.
It’s sickening that Duterte always resorts to this narrative during his speeches. Why does he even think it’s funny to say rape jokes and later apologize? Just don’t say it in the first place.
