Pangilinan and Aquino asked for decent debates over Marcos` burial
Tuesday, November 22, Senators Francis "Kiko" Pangilinan and Bam Aquino appealed for decency debates over the secretly burial of former president Ferdinand Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani.
Both Pangilinan and Aquino worried about the abusive language of social media users who commented on photos of female protesters against Marcos' burial.
“The attacks against them are too much. Those attacks do not reflect the behavior of the average Filipino man. We are respectful. We are loving. Sometimes we Filipino men are called mama’s boy because our respect for women are rooted in our love for our moms,” Pangilinan said.
Pangilinan was annoyed to the administration of Duterte for granting burial of Marcos at the LNMB.
“Name-calling, slut-shaming, and other gender-based remarks have been the chosen form of attack by those who cannot defend their positions,” he said.
According to him, even Vice President Leni Robredo, Senators Leila de Lima and Risa Hontiveros was attacked the same.
“That is not right. If we don’t agree with others’ statements, let’s give our own arguments. Let’s not cuss each other. It is degrading,” he said.
Meanwhile, Aquino said that people should respect each other even they have different opinion.
“While we have different views on issues, we should not lose respect for each other and decency in social media,” Aquino said in a statement.
“How we are outside, with our friends and family, should also be how we behave in social media,” he added.
