Masyadong Seryoso Ang Mga Tomboy Sa Pilipinas

by the lesfriendly girl

Hindi na ko mag-eelaborate. Ipoprove ko na lang. Three cases in point:

1. Meron na bang lesbianang stand-up comic sa Pilipinas? Wala. Puro bakla o trans M-to-F. Dahil ba hindi marunong magpatawa ang mga tomboy? Hindi witty? Hindi naman. Bakit si Claudia Cogan



and other lesbian comediennes, keribels naman?

Actually, may mga kilala naman akong mga bayot na kayang chumorva sa pagpapatawa sa stage. Kaso, baka hindi pa sila nabibigyan ng chance. Or, hindi lang talaga uso.

2. Ano ba ang event ng mga Little Lulu? Poetry reading. Film showing. Forums. Food trip. Talks over coffee. Board game marathon. Mga bandang kumakanta ng lesbian versions ng Bon Jovi at Alanis songs. Mga exclusive party na may mga pole dancers minsan. Ano beh, parang beerhouse lang.

3. Look at our publications. Pag nagbasa ako ng Baklese, hindi na ko makahinga sa kakatawa. Intro page pa lang, kinakabagan na ko. Pero parang walang joke book ang mga byaning sa ating beautiful islands, ati. Literary and Art Folio, meron.

Are you convinced your name is Nicole?

Actually, feeling ko, hindi naman sa wala kaming sense of humor. Wala lang talagang chance. OR, hindi uso.

Period.

PS. Tomboy din ako pero hindi ko kayang lumaban ng sense of humor. So, isa din pala akong case in point. Chika.

That was an interesting question. Medyo napanga-nga ako. Ba't nga ba? I mean, not that I am trying to stereotype my "brothers", but iilan lang ang comedians na nakita kong mga tibo.

Is it because of the "being macho" thingy nang mga tibo? I'm sure me mga tibong magagaling sa comedy. Like Margaret Cho? hahahah! Charing!

yeah oo nga no?

never pa akong nakakita ng tomboy dito sa Pinas na stand up commedian?

saka bakit kapag nakakarinig ako ng tomboy, isang lang nabi-visualize ko sa kanila?

Seryoso.

hhhmm.. that's something.

i have lesbian friends that have sense of humor naman. though i have to say some are serious. Especially in relationships, they tend to be suicidal. Bakit, may mga serious gays din naman diba? Yung mga closeted...

I do poetry reading and often present during exclusive parties (except the one w/ pole dances) But nahh... we queer gals are funny naman. tis just that for now none of us likes to do the stand up comedy thing ;]maybe in the future.

I agree. Maybe dahil hindi nga USO dito. A decade ago, my friends and I was referring a chinese looking girl talent to a talent scout. he turned her down because of her being chinita...di daw kase uso. He even said, meron na raw ba kami nakitang intsik na sumikat dito sa Pinas. pero ngayon...dami nang intsik celebs dito di ba. But I think there's something about the Pinoy Lez culture that keeps womyn from letting out the gas. Calling social anthropologists out there for answers....

hmm, yes. tama ito. masyadong seryoso ang mga tomboy -- saan nanggagaling ang contagious humor ng mga bakler? at kung contagious siya, bakit di tayo nahahawa?

aminin din natin that it cuts both ways: iniisip din ng marami na hanggang slapstick lang ang bakla, which is not true ha.
