The Pvblic wants Congress to pass the Anti-Discrimination Bill

Let’s get one thing straight: I’m not.

Another thing is that the Anti-Discrimination Bill, which Bataan Rep. Geraldine Roman has been so passionate to pass, with then Akbayan Rep. Etta Rosales and Rep. Kaka Bag-ao, only seeks to do the following:

Equal rights, not special rights for the LGBTQ community in school or in the workplace.

In case you didn’t know:

If an employer, whether from the private or public sector, includes sexual orientation or gender identity in the criteria for hiring, promotion, transfer, designation, work assignment, re-assignment, dismissal, performance review, selection for training, in the computation of benefits, privileges and allowances — that is discrimination.

If a school or any educational or training institution refuses to admit a student or participant or chooses to expel him or her solely on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity, that is discrimination.

If a school imposes disciplinary sanctions, penalties, restrictions and requirements harsher than the usual that infringe on the rights of students on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity, that is discrimination.

When a student or a trainee is harassed, punished or restricted due to the sexual orientation or gender identity of his parents or legal guardians, that is discrimination.

It prohibits a certain amount of acts that unfairly discriminates against the members of the LGBTQ community.

It provides a place or a venue for complaints and cases to be filed.

Jail terms for violators of the provisions.

It does not seek to legalize same-sex marriage or unions.

A self-proclaimed former gay man Ansel Beluso which is the rep. for Couples for Christ, along with a Dr. Capitulo, another rep. from Filipinos for Life have been opposing the bill of one of TIME’s most inspiring women of 2016.

Just take a look:

The pvblic was not taking none of the bigotry.

Everyone including OTWOL star Juan Miguel Severo and direk Tonet Jadaone came altogether in the #PassADB movement

The woman of the hour led her babies to #PassADB
