of Rizal and women

Tuesday, March 02, 2010

Just finished reading Jose Rizal's letter to the Women of Malolos and for the first time in my life I was able to appreciate Rizal and his work. Grabe, so effective pala talaga ang PI 100 kasi na-appreciate ko yung "Life and Works of Jose Rizal" hahaha. Hanep na course title ano.

Anyway, yun lang. And in a way, I feel empowered. Because really, women shouldn't be treated as the lesser beings in this world. We were all created equal and we are not, in any way, less than you GUYS. Hahaha. Sorry na ang sexist ng dating ng post na 'to pero it's true naman. Especially before when women weren't given proper rights, when women were ignorant and just left to work at home. Kasi naman 'di ba, sa mga kababaihan manggagaling ang unang edukasyon na matitikman ng bawat bata. Kanino ba tayo unang matututo, eh di sa nanay natin 'di ba? Tama yung sabi ni Rizal na kung yung nanay eh hindi matututo, kung ang kababaihan ay 'di matututo, paano pa matututo iyong kabataan? Paano uunlad ang bansa kung ang mga kabataan ay hindi matuturuan sa wastong paraan; kung hindi sila mabibigyan ng sapat na kaalaman tungkol sa Diyos, sa bayan, at sa iba pang pangmundong bagay.

So guys, treat women with respect. They're also meant to be your companions when you grow old. Don't treat girls as if wala lang sila, na you can just pass them around like balls in basketball. Hahaha. Parang may pinaghuhugutan. Pero seriously though, respect naman. :)

Yun lang. 2:30 na kasi ng umaga kaya kung anu-ano na nasasabi ko. Let me just quote the great Jose Rizal (great guy but we all know he was an asshole, in a way, for playing around with girls' hearts haha!)...

And, why should you submit to another your thoughts, seeing that thought is noble and free?
And another one....

They [women] seemed faded plants sown and reared in darkness, having flowers without perfume and fruits without sap.
