- Daryl Ong posts about his opinions regarding coming out.
- Netizens point out the wrong points of Daryl’s statement.
Darren Espanto and JK Lbajos’ online feud has been one of the hottest topics in the past few days. It started when JK allegedly tweeted Espanto the phrase “gayness at its finest.”
Singer Daryl Ong took to his own social media pages to share his thoughts about the topic of being gay and how to react to it.
He stated that if someone accuses him of being gay and it’s true, then he would just tell the truth as he doesn’t know why it needs to be concealed.
If I was the one accused of being gay,
(maliban nalang kung may kasamang threat or binastos ako at pamilya ko)
hindi siguro ako mag aaksaya ng panahon mag react lalo na kung alam ko naman na hindi totoo, at kung nagkataon mang totoo, eh ano naman? Ano ngayon? Bat mo naman itatago? Pag bakla ka ba criminal ka? Does it make you less of a person? less of an artist? Pag bakla ka ba nabawasan ba galing at kakayahan mo sa kung saan mang larangan ka nakikipag sapalaran? Nabawasan ba talino mo?
Daryl said that what he doesn’t get is that in this day and age, there are still public figures pretending to be straight. He encouraged them to stay true as it feels better.
Just as being straight, does it make you more righteous? Less “sinful”? Ganun ba yon? Natitimbang ba, nababase ba ang bigat ng kasalanan at kakulangan sa pamamagitan ng kasarian?
Di ko kase talaga gets bakit hanggang ngayon na 2018 na may mga public figure parin na nagpapanggap maging lalake, tapos pag na issue, papalag-palag. Ano ba binebenta mo? Talent mo o kasarian mo? Bat kelangan pa kase magpanggap. Bat di nalang magpaka-totoo. Masarap maging totoo sa sarili at sa maraming tao. Mas masarap yung niyayakap ka ng tao kung sino ka talaga.
“THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE”
Magpaka totoo ka.
Netizens then reacted to his status saying that coming out is not as easy as the singer thinks it is and it’s not right to decide for a person whether he wants to tell his sexuality to the world or not.
Excuse me Sir, you can have your point, but it seems like you are insisting someone to admit something that they aren’t. Eh kung hindi nga siya ganun eh? And per Darren’s issue, Sir, the two have their past issues, sobra na mag accuse yung isa. Ty
Kaso sir your not the one being accused 😊 walang masamang maging gay yes.. Pero yung pagpatuloy niyong paginsist sa tao na umamin sa isang bagay yung ang nakakainsulto.
Please since nagagamit na lang din po ang sogie paki aral na din ng gender and sensitivity
Hindi ko maintindihan bakit kailangan ipilit sa isang tao na umamin sa isang bagay na pinaniniwalaan lang ng mga taong mapanghusga. Mas kilala nila ang sarili nila kumpara sa nakikita ng mga mapanira at malisyosong mata.
Gosh… it’s their choice kung gusto nilang mag out or hindi. Thats not for other people to decide!!! Yung mga nasa closet, you have no idea what they are going through bakit ayaw nila mag out, unang una na yung may masasaktan silang tao, lalong lalo ba yung family nila atbp…
A Twitter user proceeded to explain that coming out has phases and it doesn’t always mean that once you’re done with that, you can be free and act like it as every person has his own situation.
Hi daryl, I hope you know na ang pag a-out ay may phase. Hindi siya basta basta nasasabi just because naisip mo na you have to at dahil you want to be free na. Dumadaan kami sa in denial stage, at mas best sa stage na yun kung hahanapin muna namin ang sarili namin alone.
May right time, may right age, at sa society ngayon mas nakukulong kami dahil tinutukso while searching for that puzzle piece kung sino at ano ba talaga ang tunay na kami. We all have different stories, may madali nakapag out, may hindi. Kasi we are all different after all.
Kids get bullied because of this, at mas nahihirapan sila mag out dahil dun. Dahil akala nila kapag nag out ka, kapag nalaman na bading ka, mas malaa yung pang bubully. Yun yung feeling. Hindi nila gustong magpanggap forever, ayaw lang nila masaktan at mabully pa lalo.
