My Husband's Lover and my Thoughts About It

Another milestone for GMA for creating the TV Series MY HUSBAND's LOVER starred by Carla Abellana, Dennis Trillo and introducing new Kapuso star Tom Rodriguez. For me, it is but a perfect story of a person who happens to be in the Third Sex Community.


Kudos to GMA as well for showing a different side of love and drama that really happens in the real world. There is another kind of world unexplored but very developed, a world that needs to be understood. A world regarded as the unknown. Let me give GMA a credit as well for being the first to tackle a heavily tackle homosexuality with good taste and sensitivity.

For me, MY HUSBAND'S LOVER was made to educate the viewing public about the struggle of those people that are different from the social norms. It is a story that everyone can learn from. 

Being homosexual is not a cliche nor a disorder that needs to be cured. It is a fact that they exist. It is a fact that people who regards themselves as upright and righteous needs to accept and understand. They are people as well just like anyone else. They go to church, they do community services, they work hard for their family. they are doing what the normal people are doing (Normal because that's what other people think of themselves). Being homosexual is not an epidemic that needs to be cured. Homosexuality is being true to someone else's feelings.

I can't wait for each episode to be aired. I am excited on how the conflict would be resolved. I am happy that MTRCB approves the said TV Series to be aired. I am happy because the TV Series can somehow be a medium to educate the Philippine community that homosexuality is not a sinful disorder rather it is part of the social norms.

Being a true man is not defined by your sexual orientation but rather it is defined by your own action. Being righteous is not define by your sexual orientation but rather it is defined by how Godly your acts are. Therefore self acclaimed righteousness, discriminating, teaching people how to hate other people is not a Godly act rather it is an evil disorder that needs to be cured.

Also, when the Bible says "watch and pray" it doesn't mean "watch and criticize," "watch and gossip" or "watch and judge."

There's only one thought that struct me every time I watch the show. It is the need for Diversity anywhere and everywhere whether that is in the family, at the church, and at work. It is chaotic when you try to ignore someone because of their sexual preference. Imagine a father who cant accept a gay son or daughter. Will he be happy hurting their son or their gay daughter? Or if we cant accept a person in the church because of sexual preference are you being Godly. In fact, you are not even obeying God's Ten Commandments by loving one another.
