Overseas educational programs and employment opportunities are very much sought after here in the Philippines.

They slut-shamed her, told her she deserved it, that she was “asking for it” anyway, that she used it to pull attention to herself, to somehow, make up for her lack of good looks. Again, no comment for the guys. Until when are we going to accept these comments, anyway? Seriously, humanity, we need to give justice to our education.
