  1. Yung mga tulad ni LiveMyLyf, salot! What a logic! Hindi dapat hinahayaang magbabad sa social media. Wala dapat internet connection at gadget!

  2. Agree with Karen. Kahit ba sexy star ka, prostitute ang work mo or dancer ka sa club walang kang karapatan mang bastos or maging excuse yun sa sexual harassment/crime.

  3. Sorry ha pero di ko masakyan yang the way a woman dresses should not be a reason why she got harassed. Eh Meron talaga bastusin na yun hitsura na mapapaisip na lang nga Tao na bakit nagsaplot pa Kung halos kita naman na lahat. In my opinion though, Gretchen F doesn't fall into that category. Yes, sexy suot nya pero respectable pa din. Pero aminin Meron talaga iba who don't know how to dress appropriately.

    2. May ganun nga teh. Pero mali pa din. Wala naman mga valid reason para mang bastos or mang harass ng isang tao. Babae man or lalaki. So, kahit nakahubad pa yan, walang sino man ang may karapatan na mang harass.

    3. It’s called self expression. Saka dressing that way make them feel good. But i’m sure none of these girls want to be harassed.

    4. Your thinking is one of the reasons the Philippines is not progressing. I've traveled to 19 countries and I'm currently living in Germany. Once we were in Berlin, I've seen nude and almost nude people (men and women) walking down the streets and guess what? People don't give a hoot. Nobody was gawking.

    5. 4:16 our culture is different from theirs. Not just culture but in economy too. Please dont compare.

    6. 4:16 who cares if you’ve been to 19 countries? No need to boast your travels, kasi it’s not something unique.

    7. 9:06 Ako I care na she's been to 19 countries. Tingin ko sayo hindi ka pa nakakalabas ng country kaya ka ganyan magisip. Once kasi na maexplore mo na yung ibang culture, masasabi mo na nakakaawa yung Pilipinas. Sobrang backward thinkers tayong mga Pinoy.

    8. It all bools down to respect. A baby wearing a diaper can be raped by some evil scum and the same way can happen to a fully grown man wearing jeans. Wala sa damit yan, isiksik sana yan sa utak ng mga taong makitid magisip

    9. Oh please, enough with comparing how backward our country is compared to western nations when it comes to fashion and self expression. It’s our culture and it will never ever be the same with theirs. Ever. Just because okay dun ang magsuot ng mga damit na kita ang kaluluwa or maglakad sa kalye ng hubad doesn’t mean na dapat ganun din tayo dito sa Pilipinas. Asians are relatively more conservative than westerners kaya wag nang ipilit.

    10. And FYI, I’m well-travelled too, so don’t play the hindi-pa-nakakalabas-sa-Pilipinas card on me. It’s all about culture appropriation my dears. It’s already deeply ingrained in our culture, kaya hindi na basta basta mababago yan. Kung gusto mong maglakad ng hubad, wag ka dito tumira. It’s as simple as that.

    11. But the bottomline is, mali pa rin ang sexual harassment whichever way you look at it. Ang di lang mag sit well sakin eh yung pinipilit na ok lang dapat na magsuot ng super revealing clothes at dapat NR lang ang mga tao sa Pilipinas pag nakakita ng ganun. Manang na kung manang, but I still believe dressing appropriately is a form of self-respect. - 3:00 and 4:11

    12. so kapag di disente ang suot, isesexually harass na natin? di ba pwedeng icall out lang na di appropriate ang suot base sa standard natin? kaloka po.

      Delete
    13. 6:31 No one said that it’s okay to sexually harass someone who dresses provocatively. The point here is that wearing indecent clothes can attract harassment from perverts. Yun lang yun. If you present yourself to the world that way, these pervs will think that you’re game for “anything”. And by anything, alam niyo na kung ano yun.

  4. Tama naman si Karen. Kahit ano pang suot ng babae, hindi dapat siya makaranas ng sexual harassment and more. Pero kung ang anak ko yan, pagagalitan ko kung labas kaluluwa na kung nagbihis.

    1. Agree. That is Gretchen and her own self pero bilang parent, I always remind my children to act in a way that they will not attract harassment or danger.

  5. Sorry ha pero di ko masakyan katwiran mo. Ang baluktot. I think people who dress more liberally get harassed because there are people like you who do not respect people as they are.

  6. so jst bec Gretchen Fullido is voluptuous, does that mean her dress is provoking? I think Gretchen presents herself properly..it's all in the mind.

    1. 1:5 Yes it is. If you are voluptuous, all body hugging outfit will come out different as opposed to those with regular slim bodies. That’s a fact.
      You are right though, that it’s all in the mind. But the problem there is we can’t control how people think.. kaya nga be safe and wear something safe (for lack of a better word) nalang than push the boundaries and be sorry later.

    2. Agree with 9:47. We can always express ourselves the way we want but we can't control those around us; and how they respond to the way we present ourselves in public esp in case of celebrities. It's like not wearing expensive things while in public places so as not to attract snatchers.

  7. It’s simple. The universe gives back to you the respect you deserve.

  8. Enough please! Stick to the main issue....NO TO SEXUAL HARRASSMENT!
