Duterte image pasted by "activists" on University of the Philippines urinals mirror Filipinos' general pissing habits


Pasting images of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte on public urinals at the University of the Philippines is typical of the intellectually-stunted and lazy "activism" of the Philippine Opposition. It plays into an easy space in the Filipino national character because Filipinos, after all, are people who habitually urinate anywhere they please.

Familiar sight: A Filipino urinating on a public street.

So if these "activists" intended to send out a message that pissing into the image of Duterte is an honorable act of "protest" they should think twice about what it is exactly they are trying to say.

Filipinos are inherently disrespectful of public spaces. Pissing on the president's face does not say much about any "cause" or "advocacy" other than to show that, aside from public walls and sidewalks, the Office of the President is just another public structure where one can literally relieve himself of his anxieties. No thinking is required. And that, in particular, suits the Filipino just fine.
