Yep, I'm still nursing a bad Bilbiling Mandaluyong 2014 hangover. And I have this cool song to blame for, among others.
Since my friends and I arrived too early yesterday (around 5pm) in the venue, we got to hear this song and watch this music video way often than the others. Upon hearing it, I kept on asking myself how come I wasn't aware of this song. I've heard Datu's Tribe perform live a couple of times already!
I appreciate how this song offered a glimpse to a guy's perspective about body love. But it makes me wonder, how do we know the difference between appreciation and fetish?
As you can hear in the background, there was this massive audience impact when they played this music video. I heard supportive cheers from the candidates' ka-baranggays and possibly laughs and jeers from the others. We're still far from becoming an body-loving, non-judgmental society, but I'm grateful for opportunities like this. The more we get exposed to fat bellies, jiggling arms and stretch marks, I believe, the more we will get familiar to such. And I pray this familiarity would lead to acceptance.
