isang mapagpalayang araw po sa inyo. Sa napakaraming mamamayan dito sa ating bansa na kung saan tayo ay nababalutan na ng ideolohiyang peminista-radikal, kayo ay naglakas-loob na igiit at isigaw sa mga pilipino na hindi lamang isang isyung "pambabae" ang konsepto ng domestic violence. Maaaring mahirap pa para sa ilan sa ating mga kalalakihan ang maunawaan na tayo'y nakakulong din sa mga limitasyon at ekspektasyon sa atin ng lipunan. At lalo na rin sa bumababang kahalagahan ng ama sa bawat pamilyang Pilipino. Mabuhay ang iyong adhikain! Kahit mahirap mang manghikayat sa simula, naniniwala po ako sa kakayahan ninyong maipamulat sa lahat ng Pilipino ang mga karapatan ng kalalakihan.

NAPANOOD KO RIN ANG REPORTERS NOTE BOOK KAGABI, AT TAMA LAMANG NA MAGKAROON NG PROTECTION PATI MGA KALALAKIHAN SA MGA BABAING MAPANG ABUSO. SOME TIME THEY USED THE WORDS "KUNG MAHAL MO KO SUSUNDIN MO KO" IT IS VERY MANIPULATING WORDS LALO KAPAG MAHAL TALAGA NG LALAKI ANG ISANG BABAE.

I WILL SUPPORT YOU SIR

Napabood ko kagabi ang documentary about Macho - and doon ko nakit aitong website na ito.
Matagal na din akong nag hahanap ng organization or group which the main objective is to amend the RA 9262 --

I am a single father, may anak ako isa ako ang nagpalaki sa kanya for 5 yrs, then after malaman ng mother nya na may GF na ako saka nya kinuha ang anak ko at hindi na pinakikita sa akin. kaya napilitan akong mag file ng case sa court ng custody ng anak ko. ngunit sa mother ang favor na decision ng court - but was granted na visitorial rights - which is hanggang ngayon hindi ko makuha an visitorial rights - nakikiusap pa ako sa mother nya to see my daughter, paminsan minsan ko lang makita ang anak ko ngayon, matagal na ang 5hrs a month.
ayaw din nyang magkasundo kami sa DSWD hindi nya daw kailangan ang DSWD.

nabasa ko ang batas na ito RA 9262 - at ang masasabi ko lang masyadong one sided ang batas na ito -- tama may naabuso na babae -- pero mukha naman somobra ang proteksyon nila ... na para bang babae na lang ang tao sa Pilipinas at wala ng lalaki.

Tama dapat amend ang batas at pantay pantay dapat and issue....

sabi nga ng teacher ko noon college ako -- Masmadami ang na abuso na lalaki kesa babae -- ang sa lalaki nga lang eh un recorded and even minsan hindi na pinapansin dahil nga sa lalaki ito, but if ginawa nyo sa babae ang mga ginawa sa lalaki eh iba na ang ibig sabihin noon .... sexual harrassment.


I support this movement.

Isang magandang araw po muli!
Ang pagpapalabas po ng isyu tungkol sa mga battered husbands sa reporters notebook ay Isang magandang hakbang upang iparating sa lahat ng mamamayang pilipino ang tungkol sa isyung ito. Hindi po ito isang nakakahiyang usapin para sa mga lalaking malapit sa ating buhay...ating ama, kuya, kapatid, kaibigan. Ituloy-tuloy lang po natin ang pagpapahayag ng ganitong mga usapin sa madla, lalo na sa kagalingan ng mga kalalakihan at sa mga kababaihan.

ISULONG ANG KAPAKANAN NG MGA KALALAKIHAN! ISULONG ANG TOTOONG PAGKAKAPANTAY-PANTAY SA SEKSWALIDAD!

Isang mapagpalang araw po! Ako po ay bumabati ng isang maligayang ika-10 anibersaryo ng International Men's Day. Sana po ay makilahok din po kayo sa ginaganap po ngayong "isang tanong" ng GMA 7 at magtanong po kayo kung ano ang mga magagawa nila upang pagandahin ang kalagayan ng mga kalalakihang Pilipino na nasasadlak ngayon sa napakaraming problema gaya ng sa edukasyon, pamilya, trabaho, atbp. Inaasahan ko po ang inyong masugid na pagsuporta at paglahok sa pambihirang pagkakataon na ito

Good Day Po!

Hinsi ko talaga maintindihan ang kamanhidan at fi pag-iidip ng ilang lalaki ngayon. Kaya nagiging marahas ang lalaki dahil di niya nasasabi sa ibang tao na may problema siya. Kailangan talaga natin na bigyan ng kaukulang atensyon ngayon ang pagtulong sa aking kapwa. Stop acting like a "gentleman" today like being emotionally stoic, because of that men are now looked by many as a gentledog!

story: wife attacks me and daughter intervene. pushed daughter but did not punch her.she got a medical certificate from a doctor and bloated the story that i punched her face twice which is not true.walang utang na loob ang babaeng ito, i accepted her in my family and even spent a huge amount to send her to college. now that she is already a nurse she wanted to extort money from me.

Itatanong ko lang po sana kung anong legal action ang maari kong gawin sa aking ka live-in partner for 7 years at wala kaming anak. Sa tagal ng aming pagsasama lagi ako nakakaranas ng pang aabuso sa kanya tulad ng physical at verbal abuse. nakarating na kami sa barangay for counseling pero nagmamatigas parin siya at wala ring nangyari. May nagpayo pa sa kanya na taga barangay na kapag 3 years na live in ay may karapatan na siya sa aking mga pag aari. Ang lagi niya ring panlaban sa akin ay ang pagbabanta niyang magpakamatay. sinubukan ko naring ayusin ang aming problema pero puro pang aabuso parin ang natatanggap ko mula sa kanya. Kahit makipag hiwalay ako sa kanya ng maayos, ayaw parin nya umalis sa aking bahay. Alam ko na wala pang batas sa ating bansa ukol sa pangaabuso sa mga lalake. Anu po ba ang mga hakbang o legal action na maaari kong gawin para humiwalay na siya sa akin. Sa ngaun patuloy parin ang pang aabuso niya sakin.

Dahil sa RA 9262 nakatali ang kamay ng mga kalalakihan kahet pa nakakaranas ng verbal or physical abuse. Pareho kami ng misis ko na may alam sa mga batas. Pero tila naaabuso ito. Dumating yung point na sinaktan nya ako at ng nirestrain ko sya syempre naging pisikalan kase nagwawala na sya at kailangan ko sya hawakan. Mas malaki sya sa kin kaya gumamit ako ng lakas para hatakin ko sya at pigilan makagawa ng damages sa mga nasa bahay. Nasaktan din sya pisikal. Pareho kami. Pero ayun, ako pa nakasuhan at wala ako depensa kase may proteksyon sya ng RA 9262 at ako wala. Ngayon ginagamit nya pa din yung insidente na yun sa kaso para totally mawala visitation rights ko sa anak ko. Napaka unfair kase inaabuso ng marami din ang batas na ito. Ngayon pati kami ng anak ko deprived sa pagsasama namin. Sana isipin din nila ang karapatan naming mga lalaki at karapatan din ng mga bata na makasama ang tatay nila paminsan. Hindi ko na hinihiling na balikan ako ng asawa ko kase wala na din ako nararamdaman sa kanya gawa ng pangaabuso nya sa kin. Pero sana man lang marecognize din ang karapatan ko lalo na karapatan ng anak ko.

Good Afternoon! I am Alvin Alcantara, a third year student from UP Baguio. I am planning to study Husband Battering in the Philippines as my undergraduate thesis. Regarding this one, I am asking for your help in order for me to finish my study successfully. Helps like testimonies regarding experiences of a battered husband would be a great study. I am looking forward to hearing from you. Thank you in advance.

My son humiliatingly faced his arraignment in court today. My heart was broken when the clerk of court read the physical and psychological abuse allegations filed against him by her GF of 2 years because they were extremely exaggerated and full of lies. I wanted to hug my son and assure him not to worry but how can I when we both knew the unfairness of RA 9262. This has caused us mental anguish for 2 years already. I am afraid of this biased law. He has just turned 20 when this case was filed. A medical report made by a gen. practitioner doctor stating that the GF suffered from depression was made basis of the psychological abuse...imagine?

I have been active lately on spreading awareness about abuse against men. This is how I stumbled upon your blog. My initial driver is my father, who I believe died early because of domestic abuse. He was 59, died of M.I.
