So a candidate for the Philippine presidential elections made a crass joke about a rape that happened in his town whilst he was a mayor. I think it was either in the late 1980s or the early 1990s.
I actually didn’t take notice of all the swearing, the crude language, the unstatesman-like behaviour. I thought he was a reasonable choice (although, had I been able to vote, I wouldn’t really choose him). But this was a deal breaker. I can understand vulgarity (within reason) but this is a no-cross zone.
How can you vote for someone who cannot be respectful of 50% of the population?
