Being from Negros Oriental I would love a study as to how females from Negros Oriental are outsanding "bakla factories" or good at creating homosexual sons. (I am only half-Negrense). In the local culture men are pampered and not taught to be hardworking, strong, masculine good providers with a feeling of responsibility. Only daughters are taught self-discipline.
In Negros Oriental women are largely the family breadwinners and men think dependenc on females is the way to go. Any survey will show that most children's schooling are financed either by their mother, grandmother, aunt or sister. And the father can get drunk all he likes. Here, it is a source of pride for a man to have a wife who provides for the family financial needs, specially when she can be a kitchen slave as well.
A married woman wanting a house of her own must perish the thought that her husband can give her one. She should break her back (and her female family members') paying for this as well as for the motorcycle her husband will use to spend nights out with friends.
Here, a man has not much duty to a woman beyond helping her to find work so she can be a provider, and beyond making an inventory of what finances she has that he may enjoy sometime. Being the family provider is strictly optional for a man. And most women from here will cling for eternity to such a man unless she becomes a regular at the emergency room from his battery. One I know ended her and her children's ordeal when the grade-school son killed his sleeping father.
I would really like to know how Negros Oriental women ended up like this.
