Tapang


I saw this meme being shared or liked by my Facebook friends. Wala naman akong magagawa sa opinyon nila but I hope they understand and know the real meaning of courage. According to Google, Courage is the ability to do something that frightens one or strength in the face of pain or grief. Hindi naman limited sa mga sundalong humaharap sa gera dahil hindi lang naman 'yon ang nakakatakot. Mas nakakatakot harapin ang realidad ng buhay. In the case of lolah Caitlyn, takot siyang masaktan ang kanyang mga minamahal dahil sa kung ano talaga siya.

Tapang 'yan sa Tagalog. Dami kayang straight diyan na walang lakas ng loob pangatawanan mga kabalbalan nila tulad ng pag-iwas sa responsibilidad sa pamilya, barkada muna bago pag-aaral o 'di kaya pagpapabaya sa sarili na nauuwi sa paggamit ng droga o pagkalunod sa alkohol.

I just wish na bago nila shinare o ni-like 'to, naintindihan muna nila ang kalagayan ng mga nasa LGBT community. We won't be forcing you to accept us but at least know where we are coming from. From there, it may lead to understanding and less judgement. Akala niyo ba, madali mapunta sa kalagayan namin? We may dress flamboyantly and talk and laugh so hard that everyone can hear but behind that, there's a deeper need that we ask from the society.

One of your best posts Bb. Melanie. As always, you always amaze me. Very, very intelligent. Di lang para sa ekonomiya itong post na 'to, para sa mga kapatid mo din na tulad ko na halos lahat ay nakaranas ng judgement ng society dahil sa pagiging homosexual. Life is indeed to short to spend it being ashamed or fearful. More of this Bb. Melanie. Beauty queen inside and out.

I agree with you Melanie for what you just said. Courage takes many forms in life. And one of them is having enough courage to face homosexual animosity amidst our society . Just pray that this too shall pass.

i'm in toronto and the lgbt community here doesnt think his "struggle" is real...i prefer the story of "Carlie" on the show "becoming us"...

I can say na mas matapang pa ang mga Baklang lumalantad kaysa sa mga straight na lalake.

Mas responsable sa kanilang pamilya
Kayang harapin ang kaliwat kanan na pangungutya.

I felt sad when I saw this weeks ago. Iba iba ang form ng courage. Para sa akin hindi sya nasusukat ng sugat, o ng kung gaano ka taas ang risk na pwede kang mamatay. They should have thought na aside from being brave for Caitlyn being who she is, she also inspired and gave other trans people a voice and possible someone to look up to.
