If you are a woman fight for Senator De Lima.

If you are a woman fight for Senator De lima. Imagine if this is your mother, being in a position of malice and prejudice, caused by the president himself, who sworn to protect the rights and the welfare of all, under the regime of truth and the rule of law.

It is disheartening how the President of the Philippines publicly ridiculed a woman. Innocent or not, with basis or without, Sen. De Lima deserves the respect from a man, especially the President, who is now being looked upon and perceived as a role model by the younger generation. However, this is not about politics, this is now a concrete scenario, how a man is abusing a woman.

Calling a woman publicly as “immoral” is already a form of psychological abuse. As someone with high regards and respect to women, as he claimed, he should have prevented his mouth from saying those tirades publicly. That simply means change really came. We have now a president who can admonish women in the basis of his political interest.

Sen. De Lima was only doing her job. As the chair or committee on human rights and previous Secretary of Department of Justice, it is in her blood already, the urge to investigate alleged human rights violations that are currently infesting the country.

Recently two UN Human rights advocate called the attention of the President to stop the increasing number of extrajudicial killings in the country. According to them, the President is violating International Humanitarian law for his “licensed to kill” campaign.

With all of these, we should support Sen. De Lima in her quest to pursue justice and the rule of law.

As citizens, we have the duty to poke our leaders when they appeared unpresidential. The President should not interfere with the actions of the legislative branch and he should be focusing now on his promises.

Let the investigations reveal the truth.

Department of Justice Secretary Leila de Lima had proven herself worthy of admiration and accolades; I think she would be a virtuous company for a date. Every man should look the brave de Lima as a vessel of integrity, honesty and resiliency amidst the pressures bombarding her as of the present times.

Sec. De Lima showed unquestionable strength of character. What is more striking and commendable than seeing a woman standing and fighting for what is right and just despite of the black propaganda and slimy innuendos sniffing just in the front of her office.

She operates in rightful reason and correct logic. As a lawyer, Sec. de Lima’s arguments and statements would be plus points for every man. Her intelligence can cure the ignorance. I can’t imagine sitting together, sharing her insights and the truth. I’m sure there would be no seconds of silence, only deep learning and laughter.

She will not control your mind, she will guide you to what is right for yourself without slashing the rights of others. She will ask you to file a complaint other than obstructing the traffic along EDSA. She will respect the rights of others. She believes that everyone deserves the equal protection of the law.

She always presumes that you are innocent. She does not believe in mere hearsay that’s why she launches full investigation of your whereabouts. She will not give you an instant break-up or cool-off. She always observes the due process of law.

In grandstanding, Sec. De Lima is a real daughter of God. She looks at you as a person entitled for protection, love– she honors your rights. She does not cause any harm; she uses her authority and duty to protect you from whatever rogues that ensnares every man’s senses.  She is a sinner but not evil.

If I were a man, I would date Sec. De Lima because she did not impede the traffic along EDSA, She did not cause the death of patients in an ambulance because the fastest way to go to a hospital was blocked. She did not rob the precious time from students because they were caught between traffic. She did not pollute the EDSA after the rally.

She was indeed doing her job. She prevented the separation of her head from her body.
