Mayor Sara Duterte rag-dolled for claiming to be LGBT

Duterte said she cuts her hair short whenever she feels wants to feel like a man.

Vice presidential candidate and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte left a lot of people with a bad taste in their mouths after claiming to be part of the LGBTQIA+ community.

In a meet and greet on Thursday, March 10, she expressed her support for the group.

Do not allow people to define you cause of your beliefs, because of your gender, because of your age,” she said.

She shared a time when gays showed her love because she backed the community.

Ang sabi sakin doon sa isang mga nadaanan namin na LGBT group sa aming pangangampanya sa Mahalin Natin ang Pilipinas. Sabi niya, ‘Mahal na mahal ka namin, Inday Sara.’ Sabi ko, ‘Mahal ko po kayo, mahalin natin ang Pilipinas.

Sabi niya, ‘Hindi, mahal ka namin dahil mahal mo ang LGBT.’ Sabi ko naman sa kanya, paanong hindi ko ba mamahalin ang LGBT e LGBT din ako?” she added.

Duterte said she cuts her hair short whenever she wants to feel like a man.

Sa gender stereotyping, ang sinasabi nila ang lalaki maikli ang buhok, ang babae mahaba ang buhok. Kaya po minsan nakikita ninyo maikli ang buhok ko, gusto ko po maging lalaki niyan. Pag ayaw ko na po maging lalaki, pinapahaba ko po ang aking buhok,” Sara said.

“Totoo po ‘yan. Tinanong ko po ang human resource namin dahil isa po siyang LGBT. Sabi ko, ‘Bakit paminsan-minsan gusto ko maging lalaki, minsan gusto ko maging babae? Pero madalas gusto ko yung mga gawain ng lalaki pero hindi naman ako attracted sa babae.

So in-explain nya sa akin. Sabi niya ang sexual orientation mo ay babae, ang gender expression mo ay lalaki,” she furthered.

Well-known members of the gay community saw Duterte’s move as a sign of desperation.
