Fil-Ams weigh in on Pemberton guilty verdict

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – Ted Laguatan, legal counsel for US Pinoys for Good Governance, joins us in the studio to offer analysis of the Olongapo court’s guilty verdict of US Marine Joseph Scott Pemberton in the homicide of transgender Filipina Jennifer Laude. Meanwhile, Meredith Talusan, who covers LGBT issues at BuzzFeed, speaks to us from Olongapo City to shed light on why the transgender community finds the downgraded charge of homicide problematic.

    Now the word is out in America watch out when your in the Philippines and wants sex? Their are a lot of “TRANSGENDER” in the Philippines, don’t let your dick rule your brain, think before you have sex with anyone in the Philippines? It’s a country that is very poor, so people will do anything to make money to help their family. So please think with your “BRAIN” not with your “DICK.”
