Oo nga. You shouldnt judge a child. Judge the parents who raised the child.. on that note, kaway2 sa parents ni kitty duterte na puro mura lang tinuturo sa bata.— #OUSTDUTERTE (@UbecIanAlter) August 6, 2020
Despite already living in an era of hyper-advanced technology, homosexuality still seems to be a taboo in the Philippines due to cultural and religious beliefs brought upon the Filipinos.
Many Filipino household still disown their children who go against the norms, and many individuals are still closeted and afraid to accept who they really are or want to be, which is why many people are still homophobic and against the idea of opening up their minds.
James Carlos Aquino Yap, Jr., also known as Bimby, is the youngest son of Kris Aquino and Basketball legend James Yap. He’s only 13 years old, but his perception about certain things in life are surely piloting towards the right direction.
Kudos to Bimby for having such an open mind, and grown-up wisdom, and to Kris, for educating Bimby and giving him the liberty to choose his own person. #StanBimby #StanKrisAquino
