The Philippines is a confused culture. And you can’t blame us, the Filipinos. 300 years as a not-so-well managed Spanish colony, 40 under the American democratic crusade and 8 years of World War 2 horror brought to us by the Japanese. Now tell me, what are the things that are truly Filipino? Something that’s unadulterated by foreign influence. Prepare your etomology and history books because there aren’t that much; from language, courtship, music, literature, mentality and etc. Well, except for our truly beautiful ‘kayumangi‘ skin color. But f**k! Thank’s to the modern and twisted commercialization, who really among us doesn’t want whiter and fairer skin?
F**k You Skin Care Products!!!!!
And to add further damage/insult to our confused culture, the Komisyon sa Wikang Filipino (Commission on the Philippine Language) just passed a resolution renaming the Filipino official name of the of the Philippines from “Pilipinas” to “Filipinas”. See below:
This Filipinas thingy is pure bullshit. One it’s it’s not the right time to talk about it. Two it’s completely rubbish nonsense. Three it will do more harm than good to the Filipino people. Filipinas? Are they serious? Do they think their resolution can completely give the people a sense of identity that they’ll stark to work hard and honestly because they’re so damn proud of the “Filipinas”. This will not solve anything, this will just add up to the confusion of who we are as a country.
The Komisyon should just exert massive efforts in grassgroot programs and scholarships in writing and communication to discover the immense talent out there in the province. That can help make our country better. Not changing some serious proper names.
Sure there really was a Filipinas, but that back in the turbulent days under the Spanish regime. Back when we don’t have a country of our own to govern. Filipinas was an Idea our national heroes fought for. Pilipinas is the Country that came out of their sacrifices. There are reasons why somewhere in our country’s timeline they change the F-word into the Pilipinas that it is today. Perhaps it Pilipinas is more Pinoy to pronounce, or it’s badass because we’re still proud of it, or it’s P for Philippines. Not Fhilippines.
And now our genius linguist and experts wants to have it back to Filipinas? What the f**k! Of course this is bound to fail and get ignored anyway. Because:
a. F’s not even in the Philippine alphabet.. you know that a-ba-ka-da-ha in our first grade. (Unless they officially inserted it sometime, which of course was ignored anyway)
b. F’s to foreign to pronounce, too classy, too faken social.
c. F is not in the Pinoy DNA.
d. F’s is too notorious to stand alone. You know that F-word I’ve been dropping earlier.
Now imagine if the Commission would really fight for that
shit resolution into a law. They’d be comple laughing stocks of meme’s and mean jokes, as even evidence the way the social has embraced this by far. So we would be like speaking Futangina. Facundo ifako sila sa Krus. Fastelan. Falitan na ang Salfi. Banko Sentral ng Filipinas. Limamfung Fiso. Tao Foh. Fasko na naman. Futo Maya. Fre inom tayo ng kafe. Syet parang nababaklaan ako sa F na yan! haha
My God, it truly is More Fun in the Fhilippines!
