#AnimatED: The ‘kadiri’ President
Imagine yourself as the maid violated by Rodrigo Dutere in 1959 or the early 1960s. You’re up before sunrise and work through the day and you’re dead tired at night. You are awakened by a hand inside your panty and you realize it’s one of the sons of the amo (master) touching you. Down there.
You can only seethe in silence. It does not even occur to you to raise hell, especially when the abuser is the son of the governor of Davao. You’re afraid of the boy with the wild temper, who happens to be the apple of the eye of his mother.
Fast forward to today and that boy is the President of the Philippines. The same one who was dismayed that he wasn’t first in raping a missionary; who catcalled a reporter during a presscon; who smooched an overseas Filipina worker; and who wanted female rebels shot in the vagina.
