SOGIE Bill: Falling in Love has no Gender

Back in my high school years, we’d been through an exclusive schools for girls. Some say, the reason why I took this kind of relationship because of the environment that I had when I’m at school. On the other hand, as I thought of it, it is not because ever since when I was a child I had a tendency of falling in love to same kind of gender.

When I had my very first heartbreak, she was lesbian and I never knew anything about them until a friend told me you have to accept who are and discover who are. In the process of my discovery for myself, there’s a time that I had a crush to a same kind; that’s when I knew that I’ll be giving falling again to same kind.

As I discover it to myself there different kinds of them and shape as well. We even have differ from one another.

LESBIANS are defined  as they are ones who’s falling in love with the girls. They comfortable dressing like a guy and act like a boy in addition, they accepted themselves as a girl on gender identity. They are also called HOMOSEXUAL or same-sex.

GAYS are defined as a boy who’s attracted with boys. Further, they’re comfortable in dressing like a girl and acting like a girl however, they accepted themselves as a guy as gender identity. They are also called as HOMOSEXUAL or same-sex.

BISEXUALS are defined as girls and boys who’s attracted on same gender as them.

At first, there’s one kind of lesbian until on of my co-worker at work educated me that there kinds of Lesbians. These are the type of LESBIANS as follows:

Lipstick Lesbian these are lesbians who’s highly feminized and girly in manner.

Butch or Hard Butch Lesbian they are masculine and tough like similar to men.

Chapstick or soft Butch Lesbian they’re the ones whose divided between lipstick and butch lesbians, they can go either way.

The GAYS also has different kinds as well. These are:

Bear they are large, hairy man and has an image or rugged masculinity. You may happen see them in Gyms and other men field.

Twink they are  young, slender gay man with little to no body or facial hair.

Lastly, the Showqueen or Drag queens they gays who loves to cross dress.

Lesbians, Gays and Bixesuals are interrelated to Sexual Orientation. The question is what is Sexual Orientation means?

Sexual Orientation is about who you’re attracted to and want to have relationship with. Sexual orientation includes lesbian, gay, straight, bisexual and asexual. In addition, there are big difference from gender identity. Gender identity is  about who you are while sexual orientation is about who would feel drawn to romantically and sexually.

There are several identity for Sexual Orientation:

Homosexual they are attracted to same gender such as called as Gays.

Heterosexual they are to a different gender such as women attracted to men and women or so-called Straight.

Bisexuals they are both attracted to men and women such as female to male/female and male to female/male

TRANSGENDER AWARENESS

Transgender is not related from Sexual Orientation. On the other hand, transgender are interrelated with Gender identity. Transgender means has feeling like your assigned sex is very different is very different from the gender you have identify with.

There are a lot of example of Transgender such as Transman and Transwoman.

Transman are female to male or FTM, Transgender Man and Transgender Male. While Transwomen are male to female or MTF, Transgender Woman or Transgender Female.  Transgender are attracted to anyone regardless of Gender identity or Gender Expression.

Gender Expression is how you express yourself? Either through actions and the way you dress. The examples are masculinity, femininity or both.

SOGIE means Sexual Orientation, Gender identity and Expression.

Gender identity answers the question,“What do you identify with?” female or male.

Sexual Orientation answers the question, “Who are attracted to?” -homesexual, heterosexual or bisexual.

Expression answers the question, “How do you express yourself?”

Sex assigned at birth.

One of the main reason I decided to write it because currently Philippines has SOGIE Equality bill to which it tackles anti-discrimination bill for LGBT people. This bill was delivered by Bataan 1st District House Representative Geraldine Roman whose very emotional when she had speech to her fellow lawmakers to support the House Bill number 4982 or An Act Prohibiting Discrimination on the Basis of Sexual Orientation or Gender or Expression (SOGIE).

The SOGIE Equality Bill can protect a lot of people from discrimination such as public service, schools and all duly organization the country. Furthermore, empowering LGBTQ+ persons in the Philippine society.  These can prevent people abuse and discriminate people from LGBTQ+ to be a better person in the Philippine society.

According to the SOGIE Equality bill once convicted in doing so there will be a fined out of less than P100,000 but not more than P500,000 or be imprisoned for less than one year but not more than 6 years or both. In addition, a court can also impose community service in the form of human rights education and familiarization with and exposure to the plight of victims this came from the one authors of the bill.

The struggle is real because it has been too long since it was first filed. A version of it was first filed during the 11th Congress by then Akbayan Representative Etta Rosales. It was approved on 3rd and final reading by the House but the Senate failed to do the same.

In 2006, the bill reached second reading at the House during the 13th Congress. Now, it has finally moved to the 3rd reading and going forward to have delivered as a New House Bill in our country.

Comfort Food: Cozy Beloveds’ Lounge Cafe

There are a lot of cafe’s and restaurant in the metro and all around us. There’s a cafe in which our eyes have captured our attention because of its unique name and the ambiance was comforting into our eyes. Though location was a hidden but it’s good think and talk and catch up with family, friends and loved ones. Further, cafe was barely newly open because the owner said they had an opened last April 17.

As we entered the cafe, at first, we are a bit of hesitant to enter because we are only one who entered. However, the owner and his crew warmly welcome and even open the air condition for us. For me, I was very amazed because as we enter the cafe there are a lot of bible verses and also saying that kept on reading and interest men the most while Jenny comfortably sat to their black sofa to which started to relax. So when we decided to start ordering the humble owner even take our orders and provided us recommendation for a perfect food for us.

The cafe offers an array of coffee frappe and hot combination and also has non caffeine frappe for non coffee drinkers. In addition, they also do have pastas, Panini Sandwich, salads to which you can together with your chosen drinks. Since I’m a coffee drinker and I came from my shift and didn’t get enough I decided to order their famous Black Forest milk shake frappe upgraded to cookie monster. While Jenny ordered their specialty of Frappe which they call it “What Da Frappe: Choco-Milk Shake Frappe/Mocha” with overloaded toppings. In addition, we ordered Cheesy Nachos and Tuna Panini Sandwich for perfect pairing to our frappes.

The cafe are perfect for seminars, workshops and even simple gathering like birthday, anniversaries and a lot more to offer because the Beloveds’ Lounge has wide and spacious place so you can celebrate together with family and friends. Further, you can drop by their place and hang out with friends or loved ones to destress.

Our orders took like 5-10 minutes to arrived because they carefully make frappes with love. The first to arrive is our Cheesy nachos then frappes and finally the Tuna Panini Sandwich. The Cheesy nachos is very cheesy in taste and aside from cheese there’s also crunchy white onion and tomatoes; the ground beef on top was perfect though we are a bit craving for more of it and it could be dressed up more but in general we score it nachos a whooping  rank 7 but we still enjoyed it. So, let’s go to my Tuna Panini Sandwich, tuna spread was not overwhelming in taste and wheat sandwich was toasted in brown in a good combination topped with romaine lettuce for crunch; since this for me, I scored it a whooping rank 7 because sandwich presentation should be more improved and then again I enjoyed eating it together with frappe.

The highlights are our frappes; let’s start with my frappe the Black Forest Frappe upgraded topping cookie monster and vanilla ice scream. The frappe has a combination of caffeine of course with chocolate flavor and taste of black forest essence i think. The topping are overloaded with chocolate chip, whipped cream and vanilla ice cream and chocolate wafer sticks. The frappe was perfect combined with coffee as an accent and black forest as well; it ingredients and toppings compliments each other because no ingredients was over powered in which my happy hormones activates. Furthermore, the giant cookie on top was not too hard neither soft and perfect home-made baked. So we scored a perfect rank 10 for the BLACK FOREST FRAPPE UPGRADED TOPPING OF COOKIE MONSTER with Positivity heart on it. Lastly, for Jenny it was What Da Frappe! Choco-Milk Shake Frappe/Mocha. The frappe has over loaded topping such as chocolate chips, chocolate candies, whipping cream and choice of cupcake or donut on top. The drink was perfect flavors of chocolate milkshake and overloaded topping was really enjoying in the taste buds and also like mine there’s a Positivity heart that comes along with the frappe. The frappe can really enjoy all chocolate lovers just like Jenny and me as well. We finally ranked the WHAT DA FRAPPE! CHOCO-MILKSHAKE FRAPPE/MOCHA a perfect 10.

The ambiance, crew and the owner and service was a perfect 10 because the environment is warmth and welcoming and we can enjoy their company as well. We will definitely go back to Beloveds’ Lounge Cafe.

Lastly, Beloveds Lounge has a promo if you and you company will hangout with for 10 hours; you get a free frappe. On the other hand, collect 10 positivity hearts and get a free frappe. So, bring your family and friends to newest cozy place in town, NOW!!
