I know. I know. This is risky. To be talking about something men do not have. The Kingdom Masculin might forever ban me. But hey, friends of the opposite sex, you might learn something from this.

The species of the Kingdom Feminin are superior in a way. Would you believe that the confident masculine friends are inferior against us, women, when it comes to one thing? Women have this ‘unknown something’ men don’t have. Do not ever click the Next Blog button. Do not go away. Sometimes, we all have to face realities. *smirk*
Women have what you call feminine intuition or simply women’s intuition. While everybody (male and female) has an intuition or an immediate knowledge of something, a woman’s intuition is extraordinary. Sometimes this untapped asset needs just a little developing and awakening and presto! You are a woman with a skill.
Below are random situations that illustrates women’s “it”:
  1. Rose has two sons. One of them is still in college. Lately, she noticed that her youngest son leaves the house earlier than before. She asked the son why he has to leave early and was told that one of his subjects was rescheduled. Out of instinct, she decided to go to work later at noon and went to the university. A classmate of her son met her with this question, “Ma’am, what happened to Tony? Did he get sick?” To her bewilderment, the classmate continued telling her that it’s been a month that Tony was not attending his classes.
  2. Beatriz’s husband is close to his cousin’s wife, Lou. Beatriz later feels wary about Lou frequenting their house. One night, Lou came and was looking for Beatriz’s husband. When Lou entered the house, she was dressed in her pajamas and her perfume filled the house. There was something in Lou’s actions that made Beatriz’s ponder. She confronted her husband about the hunch – she does not trust Lou. Two years later, news broke that Lou and her husband was opting for divorce. Lou was pregnant, not of her husband.
  3. Trish and Alex dated one evening. After an hour being together, Alex began to give brief responses and his eyes shoots elsewhere. Trish asked, “Do you want us to leave now?” To which Alex replied, “You see, Trish, Mom told me to be home at 8:30, Tita Inez will visit the house.”

Don’t go yet! You have to know why women defeat men because of their sixth sense. You have to know why they know something without knowing how they know it, or why they have these heightened sense, sensitivity, and perceptiveness. This is why.

Some others insist that women’s intuition is a myth but some others try to prove it is not. Being a woman, I believe that we really have this “it” that men can not have. I am always right when I air a hunch.

This is not to say that man and woman’s creation is opposing. Actually, a man’s linear or left brain thoughts complements a woman’s holistic or right brain thinking. God has a way on things. He had neither created one superior than the other but corresponding to each other. Isn’t that great, my male friend?

Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

One of my blog friends, Major Tom, tagged me. It seems tags are chasing everybody these days.

I do not have the habit of remembering exact dates, except those that are really very important, or significant, and require my memory to store.

TWENTY YEARS AGO, and that was 1985, a year before I finish college, a year of struggle and pain because Papa’s health was deteriorating. He was diagnosed to have emphysema. He was a chain smoker.

FIFTEEN YEARS AGO, and that was 1990, my first-born Kay was one year old, a precious jewel to behold, wrote a poem for her. I started keeping photo albums which I was not fond of before.

TEN YEARS AGO, and that was 1995, my second child, Daryl, was three years old. That was the time he began chattering like a bird. He was not talking till he was two years old. It had me very worried.

FIVE YEARS AGO, and that was 2000, I resigned from my work of 12 years. A poor decision to have stayed that long, I suppose.

THREE YEARS AGO, and that was 2002, a year of self-discovery, confidence and strengthened belief.

LAST YEAR, and that was 2004, got tired/bored of chatting, discovered blogging which took my interest. It had really turned the tide. Blogging made me discover myself more, and made me an addict, too he he

THIS YEAR, 2005, news of the horrendous death of my aunt, found inside her room dead atop her bed, and alone, shook me. Her death became a vehicle to reunite with relatives I have not seen for years.

TEN YEARS FROM NOW, and that will be 2015. Kay and Daryl might be working already and earning money for themselves. It will be a year after our 25th year as a married couple. I wonder if we will still be doing together the same stuff?

If you would like to reminisce, just take time to recollect and post. Go!

Is Virginity Still an Issue Nowadays?

When Papsie was still my boyfriend, he had this to say when asked about women’s virginity, “Hindi naman importante sa akin kung hindi na virgin ang isang babae. Unang-una, minahal mo siya at niligawan nang hindi nalalaman kung ano ang buong katauhan niya. Nai-inlove ka naman ng di inaasahan, nangyayari iyon na di mo naman alam kung sino talaga ang taong iyon. (It is not important for me if a girl had lost her virginity already to somebody. In the first place you loved the person and courted her not knowing fully who she is. You fall in love unexpectedly, it happens without really knowing first the entirety of the person.)” I was taken aback with those words simply because all the while I had this idea that all men wanted a virgin wife. To this he retorted fast, “Sino naman ang aayaw doon? (Who would not want a virgin wife)” And continued with his opinion that it doesn’t mean otherwise that it is a prerequisite for him.

Odd it may seem for me to hear a man with those words; it had me reflecting whether it is really an issue. The attitude of men towards virginity, I believe, is still universal – that they value it more than women valued men’s. Though the matter is congruent to a country’s culture, tradition and customs, it is still a universal belief that female chastity is a matter of morality.

Together with the fast paced technology coming in the Philippines, almost everybody is aware now that the presence or the absence of the hymen is not an indicator of virginity though historically it was. Virginity is more of the state of the mind. It refers to the unspoiled state – that of being untouched, unexplored or unspoiled. But does it really matter to a relationship? Is it really a big factor for a successful and meaningful bonding?

We go to the question – is virginity still an issue nowadays? I have no idea actually. I maybe guessing depending on the trend today, which are mostly from beliefs evolving from other cultures such as the Western culture. Filipinos are generally mutable. Observe how the F4 fad affected the multitude of the young generation of today (including some of those not young anymore) – from the haircut to the outfit. With this example, one can say that the trend today is you have to be “in”. I wonder if that would include how the youth consider virginity. Is it still regarded as a virtue – that is a big question I think?

A 20 plus-year-old chat friend once told me that the girls or the women nowadays are ‘hot’. I was a bit affronted by the remark not sure if that was a good or a bad one. And waited for more quips before I give my own. He continued by saying sometimes it is the girls who initiate and they are as young as high school students. That is disturbing to hear but I am not really ‘friends’ with this guy so I was not sure if he was just blowing his horn. I replied that situations differ and so does people, too. He may had been exposed to that circle of friends where the girls are very liberal with their way of thinking.

One cannot alter the fact that mothers are very protective of their daughters. I maybe considered as one especially about my daughter’s welfare. I don’t discuss this whole thing about virginity directly but I always remind her that she has to reserve something for herself when she loves so that if she meets the right guy, there will still be more and complications will not affect the relationship. I know that I have to be direct one day but not today. There are still ample tomorrows to chat about men. I might be prepared by that time to elaborate why some men value virginity before a wedding night though not all men highly prized it at all.

I may also be blunt and tell my daughter that some men just wanted honesty but generally, all of them dream of a virgin wife (why the heck tease the girls to bed?) But sometimes I have these lines of thoughts – are these efforts to protect virginity a way of controlling female sexuality? That would be oppressive, on the other hand, don’t you think?
