Growing Gayspeak

by Reign Loleng

Recently, a friend forwarded a text message which supposedly lists the latest additions to the “Badingtionary.” I, almost automatically, forwarded the message to everyone on my list – I dream of a world that accepts baklese as a formal language, demmet!

I am amazed at how the Pinoy gay lingo evolves. I observed that the language is almost 80% dependent on current events and pop culture so a revision is required every six months – at least.

But anyway, here are some of the words that our people recently concocted:



A
Aglipay – ugly kept man/woman of a foreigner, “ugly Pinoy, ugly Pinay”
Anjanette – “I’m coming!”

B
Barclay – Baclaran
Bethlehem – testicles

C
Cadillac – to walk
Chemistry – to joke, BS, kiyeme. So the one how jokes is a Chemist and the joke is Chemical.

D
Daisy Farm – Philippine Women’s University & J. Nakpil St., a place to pick-up teenage boys as in daisy-sais, daisy siyete…
Difficult – poverty-stricken

E
Eclipse – to sleep
Exhaust fan – a stupid person

F
Flat shoes na may takong – yes

G
Galema – traitor
Bold
H
Hagedorn – tired

J
Jason Pamintuan – straight-acting gay (this one got me laughing because all the Jason I know is gay.)

K
King Kong Barbie – effeminate muscular gay man

L
Lotlot and friends – losers of a contest, especially beauty pageants

M
Moon Crystal Power – beautiful only at night (Sailormoon truly is a gay icon.)

N
Narcisa – nurse

P
Pa-essence – “let me taste” (so pa-experience is obsolete?)
Peninsula – penis

S
Standard – old gay man (so institution is obsolete?)
Success Story – ugly gay man who hooked up with really hot guy (I think this is a matter of perspective, one man’s success story is another man’s mercy fuck.)

T
Trixie – tricycle

V
Voltron – ugly muscular gay man, “baklang maton”

Y
Yema – icky residue after anal intercourse (why?)

If you know any new gay words, please let me know. E-mail me @ reignloleng@gmail.com. Seriously, I’m collecting them.

natawa ako sa ibang words. IMHO, i don't think our gay lingo is a formal language because of technical reasons. For me, it's an art of morphing words.
sakto, popmax and i just bought baklese 1 and baklese dos over the weekend. its a book full of fil gay lingo. ang dami pa nya, dyos ko, naka2 book na nga sya eh.

I just wish na may tomboyspeak din dito, but sadly all our tomboyspeak came from the gays or was lifted from western lesbian pop culture, like lword

Mga parausang lumang sinehan

NAG DESISYON na ang Korte Suprema na labag sa Konstitusyon ang ordinansa na nagbabawal ng short time sa mga motel sa siyudad ng Maynila.

Wala na ring balak pa umanong maghain ng apela si mayor Alfredo Lim sa naturang desisyon.

Nagbabala naman si Lim na handa niyang ipasara ang anumang motel sa lungsod ng Maynila sakaling may makita sila na pinapayagan na magpapasok ng mga estudyante para magshort time.
Pero, teka, ito talaga ang pakay ko, ang mga lumang sinehan sa Metro Manila.

Taong 2005, balak ko na itong iparating sa dati kong boss na Kongresista, ang patuloy na pamamayagpag ng mga lumang sinehan sa Maynila. Subalit, may tila tinik sa aking lalamunan na nakabara. Tila, wala akong boses sa tuwing ako ay maghahanda sa aking mga sasabihin. Tila, nakagapos ang aking mga kamay para isulat ang mga hakbang na dapat kong irekomenda para masulosyunan na ito.

Alam ko, ikaw ay pamilyar ukol sa mga lumang sinehan sa buong Kamaynilaan.

Sa unang pasok ko sa ganitong sinehan, ako ay tuwang tuwa. Napan…

PILIPINAS, TUNAY NGA BANG MALAYA NA?

NGAYON ANG IKA 111st NA ANIBERSARYO NG ARAW NG KALAYAAN NG PILIPINAS. Ngunit, sa paglipas ng isang daan at labing isang taon, tunay nga ba tayong malaya na?

May mga pagkakataong gusto kong isipin na hindi na tayo nakagapos sa mga bansang banyaga dahil nagkaroon na tayo ng kalayaan sa pamamalakad ng gobyerno. Ngunit, ano ang kalagayan ng mga Pilipino ngayon? Mayroon na nga ba siyang dangal na matatawag? Taas noo na nga ba ang bawat Pilipino kahit kanino?

Sa mga nakalipas na araw, samu’t saring problema ang dinaranas ng ating bansa. Mga problemang lalong nagpapalugmok ng bawat mamamayan. Mga problemang animo’y walang katapusan. Paano babangon ang isang Juan dela Cruz kung mismong mga namumuno sa ating bayan ang nagbabangayan? Paano tayo makakalaya kong mismong mga halal ng bayan ang siyang nanguna upang itali ang bawat mahihirap na pinoy sa kanilang pamamahala?Paano na ang walang tigil na pagbulusok ng presyo ng mga pangunahing bilihin? Ang walang humpay na pagtaas ng gasolina. Paano pa m…
