A second chance: Tom Villarin says Safe Spaces Act to teach manyaks a lesson


There’s time to change ways.

Akbayan Rep. Tom Villarin said the new Safe Spaces Act that lapsed into law will teach offenders a lesson the hard way, but will still find a way to bounce back and do better.

The politiko lauded Congress’ initiative, saying that the bill is “restorative” rather than “vengeful.”

“We need society to accept the true meaning of respect, unlearn cultural norms & being gender sensitive. It’s not giving new rights but giving life to existing rights in our daily lives. It’s embracing our own humanity,” Villarin said in a tweet.

For him, the cure for sexual harassment is changing mindsets and cultural norms so that women won’t be sexualized anymore.

Your days are numbered, perverts!
