Skysenshi says: Let the Pinay emerge!

Blogger Skysenshi asks her readers: "What does the word 'Pinay' meant to you?"

Blogger Skysenshi asks her readers: "What does the word 'Pinay' meant to you?"

In her newest blog entry, blogger Bea Lapa, a.k.a. Skysenshi, talks about her desire to uplift the image of Pinays online:

... I'm not sure if a lot of women are aware, but I have been wielding my nerdy pen in defense of the Pinay ever since I noticed that the keywords "Pinay" and "Filipino women" seem to produce...less than desirable Google results. While doing my research, I am bombarded with nasty images and descriptions of Filipino women and sadly, a lot of those are from Filipino men who are self-proclaimed geeks and new media practitioners. Tsk. No wonder you cannot walk the streets of Manila without receiving catcalls and whistles. If educated men can openly promote the sexual objectification of women online, you cannot expect the uneducated ones to behave better offline.

Anyway, after reading the campaign, I am suddenly curious as to how our readers would define the word "Pinay"... 

So, in this blog, let us begin to raise better images of the Pinay!
