Vice Ganda who? Tito Sotto doesn’t want to comment on comedian’s reply to his remark about women
Senate President Vicente “Tito” Sotto III appeared to have a temporary case of amnesia Saturday (September 7) when he was asked for reaction about Vice Ganda’s stinging rebuke to his comment on women.
Vice Ganda slammed Sotto on Instagram for saying a man will never be a woman because he can’t give birth and doesn’t have ovaries.
The comedian asked if Sotto was joking to equate being a woman to giving birth.
“E paano po yung mga nagkaroon ng matinding karamdaman at tinanggalan ng obaryo? Di na po ba sila BABAE? Wala na ba silang karapatang tawaging BABAE? O bumaba na ba ang uri ng kanilang PAGKAKABABAE? Paano din po yung mga baog at walang kakayahang magka-anak? Ano po sila? Di na din sila BABAE? Mga wala na ba silang kwentang mga BABAE?” part of Vice Ganda’s caption read.
Asked to comment on the comedian’s remark, Sotto replied with a laugh: “Sino ‘yun? Wag mo na patulan ang mga ganoon.”
Sotto said he doesn’t see the point of responding to someone who resorts to personal attacks because it means stooping to a level lower than the other person.
“‘Pag ang mga tao ginagawa inaatake ka na nang personal, talo na sa debate yun. Wag na patulan. ‘Pag pinatulan mo yun mas mababa ka pa sa kanya,” he said.
