Let's accept the fact that today's generation we have 3 kinds of gender. Sana magka dengue ka na rin para 2 in issues kunin mo na, tutal uhaw ka publicity irrelevant Kaloka ung ibang tao problema may makain araw-araw o mkahanap ng trabaho,ito nman pag cr lng ginawa national issue. Gaining attention at the expense of the janitress who was simply doing her job. So whats next? A book deal..reality tv show? 'Banyo problems with Gretchen'? Susme.

P*ta... inuna pa yong walang kwentang bading. Mailihis lang talaga ang totoong kwento at problema ng gobyerno? Ang nangyari ay ang maasar ay talo!!!! Unahin niya muna ang ENDO at WPS. Hindi national security problem ang toilets. Arte mo binigyan ka kc ng pansin nas maraming importante kaysa sayo Davao City is one of the safest cities for LGBT in the Philippines.
