The #BabaeAko movement FAILED to unite Filipinos behind feminism and, instead, further polarised Ph society


The so-called Babae Ako movement will go down in history as a textbook case of how not to run an activist cause that seeks to come across as inclusive. It was ruined by its idiotic "thought leadership" and its attention whoring members and content producers.

Mae Paner a.k.a. "Juana Change" asserted that having a vagina is what defines womanhood. Memes were launched slut shaming Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson and highlighting an exclusive club of Yellowtard women -- Senator Leila de Lima, "vice president" Leni Robredo, and never-had-been-chief-justice Lourdes Sereno as the Philippines' quintessential "strong women".

In so doing, rather than unite Filipinos behind feminism, the Babae Ako movement had, instead, further polarised it. It effectively excluded people with no vaginas, women formerly or currently in the adult entertainment industry, and voters who did not vote for Yellowtard politicians.

Congratulations to the Babae Ako movement. Great work progressing the cause of feminism -- in reverse, that is.
