So often we can relate to knowing of a Pinay getting pregnant as a mere teenager.
Feminists, openly said, judgefloro, we do not need them, actually I am fighting these women, who are taking advices from the USA and are misusing funds for NGOs for their own spendings.
Man-hating feminism is not a solution - and Islam of course also not.
And pregnant teenagers, you have them in any Western country, as young as 13....
However you are mentioned some true points.
There is no family planning in the Philippines, and a Filipina girl, often only with basic school, is getting pregnant, despite she has nothing, living in a slum. There are many of such cases and I personally know such a case.
The victims are not these girls (some might be abused, but by far not all), they find a boyfriend or husband, but the children, who are often abandoned, streetchildren, homeless, no medical care, no school, even no food, no clothings...I take care of such a child.
Problems are also in the missing land-reform in Philippines, a few number of rich families are owning most of the land, making it much more expensive than for example in Thailand.
Taxes are also a problem, when I bought a small townhouse in a former squatter area, I paid only php 125.000,- (yes, it has a land-titel!), repairings were php 75.000,- but to register the land-titel was php 38.000,- too much!
How can a simple woman ever pay php 38000,- to register a land titel? She cannot save this money, because she has to pay rent. A basic rent is at least php 2500,- a month. And how can she, considering that she never will get a loan, save up to php 200.000,- for the cheapest roof over her head?
Hopeless...finally, foreign men (and not the feminists) are helping these women and children.
The Philippine government is not doing anything about all these social problems, except offering the foreigner a long-term residence permit against a small investment, which can be used for buying the own accomodation.
Living in Japan, this all makes Philippines interesting for me, it is still a place for adventures and surprises, where you as foreigner are personally welcome.
a) i personally know that 60% of private high school students here and 80% of public school teens are involved in shabu, drugs,
this is the root problem inter alia that 12-17 high schools would be easily pregnant, and futures are destroyed... it is a worldwide phenomena..
that is why here, the drug testing of schools was not implemented since the schools would be closed...
ULTIMATELY the children to be born are the loosers..
and the winners are the HYPOCRITE femininists, society-groups, law makers, FOR CORRUPT use of FUNDS...
there are some sorts of family planning here, like using pills and even medical surgeries to cut off ...
but these resulted in CANCERS of cervix, etc.
c) since the 1965 until today, land reform is really POLITICAL tool. macapagal in 1965, marcos in 1970 both used these to buy votes.. imagine in 1972, many of rice and corn land owners were forcibly paid unjust compensation and the farmers would get 50% of prime land just to let it be sold to vendees... so farmers became rich instantly... many here in bulacan... the sharing is 50-50 or 35-65% for the land to be sold to vendees... a land owner could not sell his land if there is a tenant... my neighbor, a lawyer suffered heart attack, since many of his tenants of PRIME properties in meycauayan demanded 50% of the land plus right of way;
d) P 38,000 to register is really legal and practical, why? because you have to pay CAPITAL GAINS AND documentary stamp tax = 6+1.5% etc. roughly 9% of the zonal or market value whichever is higher including the improvements;
this is better, since, before, there is so much corruption by BIR examiners, now, with fixed taxes on land transfers, and computerized, a vendor has less headache, but he has to PAY really the taxes...
unfortunately, our taxes are used for pork barrels and corruption...
e) yes, many foreigners are helping many filipinas,
IN FACT, in my 5 hours interview with SAM CHAMBERS from Kent, UK, and based in Hongkong, he had been married to a batanguena, with 2 kids... he earns P 150,000 a month and visits them in Malate at Bianca's Garden (P 2,000 per day) twice a months... he is so handsome and talll, and very intuitive, so brilliant, and kind...
i share the same thoughts with you...
hope that i would be able to learn more of computer and formatting, i am here at waltermart plaridel bulacan, an hour to manila... at NETOPIA, hoping to learn more about computer so that the forums would not get angry with my little experience..
his only dream is to write a book..
