GAY GOVERNANCE AHEAD
GAY GOVERNANCE AHEAD
What happens when our country in the near future will be led by someone closely identified if not an active member of the so called third sex? And this is not impossibility. There are signs already and in local politics, in barangay, local government and even in Congress, there are dazzling indications that they have in all likelihood made their presence. Assuming that they are able to assume power and now at the helm of national government, let us hear how they would discuss our national problems and in the process lead our country once the make-up pouch of national leadership is on their lap.
I could just imagine. The newly elected president is conferring with his newly appointed Executive Secretary inside the recently furbished Maharlika Hall in Malacanan. The Hall would be rearranged to include bright indoor plants outflanking the massive curtains meticulously spread out in pastel colours. The flowery scent pervading in the Hall signifies freshness. Original paintings from the masters are hanged proportionately and the walls are blissfully clean. The two top officials, as expected, are seriously in a huddle. Both are considered leaders in their respective field, highly respected and with no stain in their names. The President is settled in a relaxed fashion, in his casual dress with matching crochet scarf smoothly flowing from his neck. His Executive Secretary on the other hand is delicately seated from across the large presidential table, pen, stationery and an embroidered handkerchief in hand. They are truly a picture of matronly elegance.
Elected President (EP): (to his Executive Secretary): “Manay, anesh ang sitwasyon sa ating bansa? Kaya pa ba natin ibangon ang mga purita?”
Executive Secretary (ES): “Hayyyy Tita, dafat magagaling at hindi echosera ang ilalagay natin sa pwesto. Nakaka pagoda yata ang umintindi ng gobyerno.”
EP: “Plangak ka diyan! Tingnan mo maigi mga appointees natin baka masingitan tayo ng mga sholbam at Pocahontas. Paki-usapan mo rin na mag bow na ang mga thundercats! Bantayan mo rin sila baka wala pang isang buwan mga Rica Peralejos na mga yan!”
ES: “Oi, ikaw nga diyan, bantayan mo mga clasmarurut mo baka mag fade beauty mo. Yung iba Cynthia Luster naman. Yung nilagay mo sa dakung department puro lapel, kyoho naman! Karamihan sa kanila ang lakad lang puro lafang.”
EP: “Junakis sila ni mudra yun noh at tiyak seryoso at hindi magiging Lucrecia Kasilag!”
ES: “Basta, sasabihin ko sayo kung hindi okray. Sana maayos sila magpalakad at malayong maging Lupita Kashiwahara. In Fairview, lagi kong sinusundan kung sila ay mag anaconda sa atin.”
EP: “Yung nirekomenda mo sa National Defense paminta pala. Pero pagsabihan mo iayos ang bihis, ang dating niya kasi morayta!”
ES: “ Ikaw nga yung nag crayola lang yung chimney cricket mo nilagay mo na sa pwesto. Huwag ka, siya ay puro chuva at chika lang!”
EP: “Ikaw naman, tandaan mo malaki naitulong niyan sa atin, lalo sa iyo, lagi kang tommy lee jones yata! Iwasan mo na ang mag taray. Basta tulungan mo na lang siya at idedma mo ang maging geli de belen!”
So there you are a joyful glimpse of things to come. Welcome to gay governance. Don’t worry. Some of the greatest men in history had gender challenges too. Need I tell you about William Shakespeare? How about Leonardo da Vinci? Oscar Wilde. Michaelangelo. Alexander the Great. Aristotle. Rock Hudson. Vic Vargas. Leonardo de Caprio. Rustom Padilla. Keanno Reeves. Boy Abunda. Boy George. Just to name a few. As for me, wiz na ako say.
I am just wondering, if such time will come, who will be appointed as prison director?
