‘I Will Grab And Hold On To Your Panties If You Try To Leave’- Philippine President Duterte Sexually Harass Female Mayor

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has recently come under fire for sexually harassing female Mayor Tita Baja-Gallantes of the town of Garcia Hernandez. Duterte has been under attack for a sexist statement during a campaign rally in Bohol last week. While campaigning, he told the Mayor that she’s so gorgeous and he would hold on to the garter of her panties to stop her from ever leaving him. In his speech delivered in Cebuano, Duterte said: “You are truly beautiful. If it were me, why would I ever break up with you? I will really grab and hold on to your panties if you try to leave, even until the garter snaps. You’re just too beautiful. Actually, I’m not trying to pull your leg,” Duterte told Gallantes, according to the Inquirer. “But the truth is I heard, if I may [be] allowed to say it in public and it will not offend you, you and your husband are separated.” Gallantes who further flirted with the Mayor asked her if she wants to elope with him. “Can you run away with me? You have children, don’t you, mayor? How many children do you have? I have three, four. I have four but they’re all grown up already so I don’t have a problem there anymore.” Duterte then jokingly asked his former special assistant, Christopher “Bong” Go, to take care of his partner Honeylet Avanceña when he goes away with Gallantes. The president said: “Please take care of my wife while I’m away. I am here in Bohol to play. To play the game of love.” Exposing his affair with Agusan del Norte’s governor, Angel Amante-Matba, Duterte added that message should be sent to her husband that they are no longer together. He said: “But we are no longer together, mayor. You might have heard. No more. I had a landslide win [in 2016] in her province. And that’s because of love. If her husband is listening: Sir, we don’t have anything going on right now. We only have memories.” The president is not new to misogynistic statements since becoming president as in February 2018, he ordered soldiers to shoot female rebels in the vagina. Photo Credit: Getty
