Apparently, netizens were shocked when the Facebook page Pinoy Musical.ly shared the photo and wrote in the caption: “Ang ganda neto kung naging babae” (She must have been beautiful if she was a girl). Some netizens were shocked and was in disbelief but some were kind of offended by the caption.
Comments of admiration flooded the Facebook post. Here are some of the reactions:
: “Mas okay na yung Baklang mukang Babae kesa naman sa Babaeng mukang Bakla.”
: “pag naka sabay kita sa jeep sayo ko iaabot bayad ko tapos hindi ko na bibitawan kamay mo haggang sabay tayong kakanta nang ‘Hawakan mo ang akin kamay at tayong dalawa maghahasik nang kaligayahan’”
: “Werk it girl!”
While others admire the person in the photo, some were reacting offensively. Because of that, some netizens came in defense:
: “’Ganda neto kung naging babae’ Maganda naman talaga sya ah. No need for your subtle gender-shaming.”
: “Yung mga ibang lalake na nag cocomment ka bastos-bastos naman. Where's your respect guys? Kahit ano pa man yan respect na lang. dahil kahit sinong nilalang ay hindi gusto mabastos.”
The person in the photo named Louis Santos also commented on the photo shared by the same page and said: “yung comments bakla po ako pero di ako bastusin gaya ng nasa isip niyo”. Many replied to Louis’ comment and supported her statement.
