I had personal doubts commenting about this scandal involving a student from a known catholic school, University of San Jose-Recoletos. (I even debated with myself with the thought of not mentioning the school but since it has made its way to the national news, I forgave myself) Further, I might be tagged as someone who wants to boost my stats or just another opinionated blogger whose overflowing with self-proclaimed ‘wisdom’.
Call me anything you want, this is my blog. :p
Mag-bisaya unta ko. But then, for the sake of my foreign followers, I am English to me. hahaha Got that?
Enough with the intro!
Warning: This is badly written. Cross the line below at your own risk.
Here’s the story: The Sex scandal I am talking about involves a USJR student in uniform having some intense sexual action with her boyfriend on cam. Two consenting teenagers exploring their bodies.
In Uniform. With Consent.
The problem with the video (which I haven’t watched in full) is the wearing of the uniform (complete with school ID!). The act was amplified in all the different angles of it. Would it make to the national news if the girl did not wear that cloth? Probably NO. It would just be another porn video online. You see, you [partly] represent the institution you belong by wearing that uniform.
Uniformity is next to stereotype-y.
But don’t get me wrong! Whether or not you are in uniform, you should never do that kids. All I want to say is, you carry a responsibility of honoring the institution because you are in uniform. Just as other professions like policemen, teachers, doctors, nurses, etc. Change clothes. Respect it.
The school will resume wearing their uniform next week as announced. To let the stir settle a bit, they have suspended it for a time. It was to protect its students from the casual stare they get from wearing that uniform and being mocked by some arrogant people, some even trending the joke “i-USJR mo ako!” (roughly implying ‘do it to me’).
So yeah, those green skirts and white long sleeves are back with much greater honor. Stains can be
easily washed off right? And sometimes we need a little bleaching. but still, it’s a learning experience to be careful not to stain it again.
Rumors spread like wild fire. The Girl is expelled. The Girl committed suicide. The Girl is migrating to the states. The video was uploaded as a blackmail after the girl broke up with the guy. The phone was snatched and the snatcher uploaded it.
Among all these, I can confirm that the girl is allowed to graduate for as long as she complies with the requirements. And that she is alive.
Oh, it is very disappointing how people create stories. How awful has the effect of nighttime dramas twisted their minds? From reading too much
cheap novels? Well, it only proves how primitive our minds are. Sex is still an easy bait.
Right now, as to the legal aspects of this case would cover, I would leave that to the experts. It seems to be not covered by the RA 10175 (Cybercrime Law) but it seems to be under that Anti Voyeurism Act born after the Hayden Kho mess. That’s the limit of my nit-wit right there. Sorry.
To clear things:
I am not a USJR student.
I have not watched the video. Nor do I have the link. But I tried to watch it. And caught myself guilty of lust. So I stopped. I watched better videos.
I am not perfect. So are you.
Condemn the act. Not the person.
