Pinay Power Here

I just surfed the web for nearly 2 hour straight after I googled "Pinay News."

Two things:

Good LAWD there's a lot out there


Good LAWD there's not much out there.

Let's start with the positive:
Smiling and proud, I am glad to say my list of Pinay resources in my link list is growing. Just in case more Pinays decide to stop by, you can find a healthy and growing abundance of goodness right here. There are several threads and blogs out there that provide strong, live evidence of the Pinay fighting spirit. Mabuhay! ::brown fists throw high::

The downers:
Frowning and brow furrowed, my search confirms my belief that Filipinas are still fighting the domestic and degraded sex-idol image. There are only mountains ahead. The erotic and exotic Filipina concept simply drenches the internet right now. And I'm on a campaign to change that. I'm going to entitle my posts with as many Pinay, Filipina, and Fil-Am, APIA women-centered issues as I can so I can make a dent in this expanding internet. Somewhere, there is a young Filipina surfing the internet just like me. I refuse to let the cheap advertisements help define her. I refuse.

There is energy out there. A lot of energy. There are artists, photographers, dancers, philosophers, and cartoonists fighting to dispel the Filipina demure image and replace it with more fierce, hilarious, intellectual REAL womyn.
