082106_greenOMG I LOVE THIS WHOLE SPECTACLE!!!

I’ll keep this entry short and sweet because it’s fucking 6:25AM. I’m supposed to be asleep but all this drama ignited some spark between my (mere) 2 brain cells. I feel that, as a citizen of the land of the brown, l’exotique and the natives, it is my civic duty to educate all my minions about this whole issue.

This is fun! I finally have a good reason why I should read the newspaper instead of US Weekly.

Not too long ago, I blogged about that bigoted old man who wrote a very homophobic piece in one of our top newspapers. After 48 hours, Manuel L. Quezon III (who is the grandson of the late Manuel L. Quezon) replied in the same newspaper with his opinion piece entitled "The grand inquisitor."

BTW, Manuel L. Quezon (the first… my god, all these numbers are making me dizzy) is the 2nd President of the Philippines. I’m sure there wasn’t much corruption back then so I can say I love this man. Anyway, don’t expect too much from me because my knowledge of Filipino history is extremely limited — I skipped class to smoke cigarettes, drink pineapple shandy and whore myself to pedophiles; that’s my education, right there.

What I do know is… Manuel L. Quezon got his mugshot printed on our 100-Peso bills, which is roughly around $2.

I WANT MY MUGSHOT TO BE PRINTED ON OUR MONEY ONE DAY!!!

Fast forward a week later, it’s the dirty old man vs Manuel L. Quezon III at the Philippine Daily Inquirer!

Can someone just send the Honorable Ignacio A. Cruz to a retirement home of some sort?

I think I’m gonna make myself a cup of tea and flip through the pages of People Magazine because it’s too fucking early for Bryanboy verbal diarrhea.

I swear to god, NO MORE POLITICS/STATE OF THE NATION/COUNTRY/SEXUALITY/WHATEVER-related posts from me.

Anyone got a vintage Alaia dress? I think I’ll need it sooner than what I expected.

Fuck Alaia. I think I’ll need John Galliano for Christian Dior Haute Couture piece because Ignacio A. Cruz hates people who wear "loud clothes, flunkies, hypocrites, humbugs and other unpleasant figures, male and female, in our imperfect society."

[Bryanboy's note: on a more serious note, I'm really glad there are people out there such as Manuel L. Quezon III. Visit his blog at http://www.quezon.ph. He even mentioned me on his latest post. I'm telling you assholes, this whole blogging thing is fantastic. Who would have known a former President's grandson reads my blog???]

[LAST MINUTE ADDENDUM, COURTESY OF RONALDBRIAN:

Manuel L. Quezon III did not just write a "reply" to his co-talking head, the bigot Isagani Cruz. Manuel L. Quezon III CAME OUT of the closet to stand up to Cruz's homophobia. Which is a very brave thing to do considering that Mr. Quezon's opinion column writes about politics from the perspective of a Philippine historian. His credibility is a must. By bravely coming out in this very homophobic country Mr. Quezon risks being disdained by readers. In other words he risks losing his audience and his column as well.]

I AGREE WITH THE ABOVE!
