President Rodrigo Duterte wants a third restroom for the entire LGBT community.

“Ang sinasabi niya, dapat meron ng third restroom for them. Sinabi niya, pinag-usapan namin iyon kahapon,” Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo said in a television interview on Monday.

Panelo said a third restroom will prevent discrimination towards LGBT individuals when using toilet facilities.

“Tama naman iyon, ako I agree na kailangan talaga may third restroom for them para wala nang problema di ba, that will solve everything. Kasi papasok ka sa female, siyempre hindi rin komportable iyong mga babae, alam nilang lalaki pala iyon; ganundin sa kabila, di ba. So the best is you have a third restroom for them, di wala nang problema,” the chief presidential legal counsel explained.

Asked if Duterte pushes for the passage of the Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity and Expression Equality or SOGIE bill, Panelo said: “Given the way he says that dapat merong third, di logically suportado niya iyon. Lalo pa sinabi niya, dapat talaga all should be equal, lahat kailangan may rights.”
