Mocha Uson apparently doesn’t like getting called “maasim.”
Recently, the OWWA deputy administrator accused Manila Mayor Isko Moreno of being disrespectful to women.
She recalled how she decided to ignore a remark by Moreno during a flag ceremony in Manila two years ago where he introduced her as maasim.
“Sa totoo lang, nabastusan po ako doon. Hindi ko maisip, paano niyo nagawa sa akin ‘yun.” she shared on August 8.
“Di tayo close, at ganun ang pagpapakilala niyo sa akin sa harap ng maraming tao. Pero pinalampas ko ‘yun.” she added.
She then questioned Moreno’s attitude towards women.
“Mayor, ganyan ka ba magtrato ng kababaihan? Kabastusan na sabihin mong maasim o hindi maasim ang isang babae.
“Mayor Isko, paalala lang. May safe spaces act na. Bawal na po ang gender-based pambabastos. Online or on the streets. Ine-enforce nyo ba ito sa Manila?”
Uson wants to disassociate herself from the term and instead should be considered as someone with courage.
“At isa pa, hindi ako maasim, matapang ako.” she said.
Her comments came after Moreno blasted the sell-out trolls who have been spreading fake news since 2016 without mentioning Uson but alluded to her manager Banat By.
