HEAR MY BATTLE CRY!
When Carlos called and asked me to do an article about equality, walang isang kembot I immediately said yes. Then suddenly he said “But Div I’ll make you look like a man ha (with drawing ng bigote and all!)”. Honestly, I still didn’t mind. What a small price to pay to have my becky friends’ voices heard. The beckies who inspired me to be positive, the beckies who made me laugh at my lowest moments and hanggang ngayon walang ABSENT sa pagpapaligaya sakin. Positive ako dahil minana ko sa mga bonggang bonggang becklies na kilala ko (yes, kasama yung mga twitter and tumblr peeps). So Carlos, Bring it on!
From twitter, tumblr, facebook at iba iba pa. I think you already know my battle cry- EQUALITY. I am not going to argue about the technicalities and more, I am no expert on this, but what I am voicing out is what I experienced first hand. Pagmamaliit, pangkukutcha, pangmamalupit, pagpapahiya at pagsakit sa mga kaibigan ko. Simple lang toh. Hindi makatao yun. Whatever you believe in, my point here is that any form of maltreatment to other human beings is simply WRONG. Let’s argue, let’s converse hanggang maubos ang laway natin. BUT PLEASE DON’T HURT MY FRIENDS. Pantay pantay tayo sa mata ng Diyos. That is my battle cry. Wala naming sakitan sa kapwa.
Then right when I was getting excited na, I got another text from Carlos “Umm, Div, can you make V agree also. He has to dress like a girl…”. Uh oh… ok medyo kinabahan ako dun. Medyo mahirap yun. So lahat ng strategy and chever inisip ko na.. what if magluto ako ulit ala valentines? What if magsurprise visit ako sa set? What if mag picnic kami? Just when I was running out of ideas… Bumagsak ako to what is normal for me. What I truly know… V loves me. V knows my battle cry. V always supports me (kahit sa daming gay shows and pageants pati gay boxing na pinuntahan ko na kulang nalang mapuno sya ng lipstick sa kadumog ng mga becklings sa kanya… wait lang, ako kaya talaga ang gustong invite or strategy nila yun para si V pumunta? HAHA! Naisahan nyo ako dun ha! Choz!) In the end, I know V will understand…..
SO….Timing nalang. Haha!
So after his work, we had our usual dvd night. I (planned this) played INGLORIOUS BASTARDS of Brad Pitt. So timing na itich!
D: Kobowgerang Brad Pitt toh! Ang macho nya!
D: Love, ang cool nya noh?
V: Yeah, the director’s good.
D: Alam mo ba nag-drag si Brad Pitt? Yang Machong yan!
V: ahhh…. (pero parang hindi ako pinapakingan)
D: LOVE! Bihis babae!
V: oh, ok.
D: Eto pakita ko! (So I got my laptop and showed him the photos)
D: Galeng noh? Rolling stones pa yan! Kaya mo ba mag ganyan?
V: huh…. (walang care at nanonood lang)
D: LOVE! Kaya mo ba magganyan? Keri mo yan!
V: Bat ba ang kulet mo? You wanted to watch this right?
D: Ummm…. Pause muna natin.
So I said my piece. A monologue of 15 minutes. I poured my heart. When I ended my mala teleseryeng script. V looked at me.
V: I know you believe in this strongly. No doubt. How much does this means to you?
D: Masbongga pa kaysa sa cover ng vogue! Ay hindi naman, pero leveling! LOVE, alala mo nung si Emma inaasar sa bora dahil nakamicroshorts, or nung si…. (he cut me off)
V: Make it tasteful though. If it means this much to you. You know that people might get the wrong impression …
D: Yes love, pero deadma na. Kasi masmaraming matutulungan kaysa sa nega. I really really really think this can help my cause. My battle cry. Our friends.
V giving me that look na “eh ano pa nga ba, ang kulet mo eh”
So I jumped and screamed!
D: BONNNNGGGGAAA MOOOO!!! ONE YOUUUU! I LABCHU 14344! Trillion times billion x million times forver and ever!
Syempre, natawa nalang si V.
So V, thank you. One you! Nagiisa ka but never ka magisa. Thank you for this. TENCHU AND MERRY CHRISTMAS! haha!
PS. If keri ni Ate Kate, KERI KO DIN!
So here you go guys! Lemme share the behind the scenes first.
