Playboy Philippines Brouhaha

Here are my thoughts regarding it:

1.) The best way to show abhorrence to its arrival is to act as if it never came out. Protesters are on their gullible best YET again as they make their voices heard in protest of the men's magazine's coming.
2.) I haven't heard them (the protesters) cry when Maxim and FHM went to our shores. Could it be the publicity of this magazine's coming that gave it a plus?
3.) I thought Maxim and FHM Philippines were more (ghastly? obscene?), offensive to the innocent eyes. Why the sudden outcry?
4.) Playboy Philippines is certainly aware of the country's limitations when it comes to showing body parts. Let them do their (the magazine's) jobs first.
5.) Don't you think it is up to the parents' to teach their kids what to do and what NOT to do (includes reading materials?).
6.) We can make a stern warning to magazine stores (Mag:Net? 7-11? Mini-Stop? National Bookstore? Filbar's?) to NEVER allow minors to buy. I thought that will help, a bit.

That's just my opinion. If you don't like it, don't buy. Who's asking for your approval?

i don't think they would in the near future. we're still a homophobic nation and women wouldn't wanna be dead caught reading one.
