Prompted by the possible showing of alleged Senator Leila De Lima’s video in Congress, a campaign to stop slut-shaming on women has been created which trended online.
I would like to testify in Congress. It was me in the video. #EveryWomanThe statement has circulated on various social media sites to stand against gender attacks and to rally against the possible showing of the alleged video of the former justice Secretary on the House of Representatives.
However, an incredible analysis from an award-winning director, Hector Calma, showed how the campaign for some netizens appeared to have a double standard.
On his Facebook post:
#EveryWomanHe questioned some netizens who take part of the campaign on why they are taking a stand for De Lima while lambasting and making fun with the staunch supporter of President Rodrigo Duterte, Mocha Uson.
Ironically, ilan sa mga nagpost nito ay nagslutshame kay Mocha Uson.
Ang labo ng prinsipyo niyo, double standard pa rin. Kung every woman yan, dapat kahit sino, kesyo kaalyado ng administrasyon o kritiko.
Huwag tanga. Hindi ko sinasabing okay ipalabas ang alleged video ni De Lima. Kahit saan tignan, mali iyon. Consistency lang sa mga panawagan at tindigan ng prinsipyo.
Indeed, a campaign to take a stand against slut-shaming should be for all #EveryWoman and not just on a certain individual.
