Misogyny. n. A hatred of women
That is the dictionary definition of a word that, by its implications, almost directly points
to its perpetrators as exclusively men. Feminists say men are misogynists because, come
on, who else can it be? Maybe they’re right, in so far as those dicks who hurt women
physically are concerned; wrong because the majority of us worship and adore women—
definitely, we don’t hate them.
But here’s a thought: if “misogyny” means hating women, can women be
We’d have to answer yes.
And it’s not even a clever remark to absolve us of any fault. It’s what we had seen
Jessy Mendiola go through the moment she was declared this year’s Sexiest in the Land.
The hate she endured online was enormous and terrifying. And a lot of it came from
women. Truth is, I don’t get it. Most of the hate Jessy got was focused on her physical
flaws. Well, let me tell you what I find sexy about Jessy, and it has nothing to do with
body parts: I find her voice sexy.
Those of my age will understand this: remember back in the day when we could talk
with a girl for hours on the phone (landline)? It’s 4 a.m., we’ve been at it for six hours,
and we’re still going, kept alive by that voice on the other end sounding so sweet, so soft
like silk, the sexiest we’d ever heard—and we hadn’t even seen her face because she was
just a random number we called?
That was what I was thinking the first time I met her and listened to her speak. She
sounded both fragile and carefree. I loved it. I wish there was a
way you could listen to her voice as you read her cover profile.
How do you capture sexiness like that in a picture? You can’t.
And maybe that’s the whole point of this year’s 100 Sexiest List:
it's a celebration of women’s qualities both seen and unseen.
Sorry if I sound a bit self-absorbed. It’s just that this issue
has taken on a whole new sense of purpose. Apart from Jessy’s
story, we got an exclusive interview with PNP Chief Director
General Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa and many tough questions were
answered. There are real issues here, gentlemen. Real big issues—
and you’re reading it on FHM.

What FHMers
have been up to
this month
We had the honor of interviewing the
immovable rock of the PNP forces,
the Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa. The
chief said a lot of memorable stuff
during our talk but what really stuck
the most was his parting inquiry, “O,
kailan kayo susuko?”

I really loved your pictorial with Solenn
Heussaff. If I had to guess, probably one
of your art directors really loved Game of
Thrones? Ha ha! Anyway, Solenn looked
amazing as always and I’ll be sure to buy
every issue you put her on! Looking forward
to more badass and slightly geeky shoots!
Kara dela Cruz, via email


My girlfriend and I are avid collectors of your
magazine since 2008. We’re still looking for
earlier issues that aren’t widely available in
stores anymore. I would love to see my photo
in your next issue to surprise her. Thank you
very much and more power to you guys!

I really hope Ely can save OPM. Other people
might say OPM is still alive because bands
are still playing gigs but no one actually goes
to see the good bands. As you can see wala
namang malalaking concert na ginagawa ang
mga local artists and if there are, maliit na
portion lang of them can. But foreign acts are
always so popular–halos laging dinudumog
kahit sunod-sunod ang mga concert. Masakit
mang aminin, namamatay na talaga ang OPM.

But while the photo had captured the attention of men. you’d have easily given in to the urge to linger. But she is still perplexed. on the beach. She was luring viewers in. lahat sobrang ‘Wow. it feels like it’s still not happening. I’m always on the go.










they are threatened by a woman who speaks her mind. castigating women (not men. na kung titingnan mo.” Many of them are perfectly capable adults. She simply chalks it up to fanaticism. pointing out that there’s something wrong with her “thunder thighs. she doesn’t think of the backlash as some kind of testament to our culture of quick judgments..’” she enumerates. the irony being that she is vilified by her own kind. “MOST OF THEM ARE WOMEN. that fans are fans.” that she “isn’t humble” because she openly acknowledges her self-worth and beauty. It’s just. Yun yung nakakihiya. “What happened to the “change” that everyone says is coming? Let’s make it happen. and they bring you up.” she prods on. which is the odd part). “Don’t we already live in the year 2016?. “Why do we want to pull other people down instead of helping each other up. We are very strong. It’s quite embarrassing for us women. she says. jealousy.” she insists. “Pata. calling her “fat”. bewildered. . mga lalaki pa yung nag-rerespect sa’yo. and that a men’s magazine would lead the way to open discussion on how we approach standards of beauty. “Can you not look at it in a very superficial way?.” is her most popular critique. “Survey says. even when pushed to corner of vulnerability.“YOU KNOW THE WORST PART ABOUT IT.” Jessy asks. noting that people nowadays even criticize the bodies of gymnasts. thunder thighs. Pata..” Jessy is caught between the adulation and ire of men and women. But what is it about her that has drawn such an adverse reaction from haters? We can come up with a few theories: they are frightened of a woman who is so comfortable with her sensuality and is not afraid to work with it. denigrating her legs. ‘Grabe parang panlalaki yung legs niya. because a woman is so confident. ‘Pata!’ Top answer!. and hazards a guess that some of them may be mothers who have daughters as old as she is.we all crumble when we pull each other down.” SHE SAYS OF HER HATERS.” that she has no talent except “taking her clothes off. pata queen. And some are young girls.” she jokes.” she grieves. “Women talaga are really strong. and that’s that. and especially among women?. But Jessy says no.

hello?” And while she does admit that sometimes the negativity gets to her. ang ibig sabihin ko kasi nun parang. maybe even 10 or 20.” she clarifies. I can sprint. And I think for me. So yun lang yung ibig ko sabihin nun. but she continues to practice it for fitness). and look at the people around you. But then you plant yourself on the ground again.That’s the good thing about Jessy—she handles everything with an unapologetic candor. it only takes a moment of reassessment before she continues to keep charging on. Jessy woke up the next day to find she was all over the news. Because who can compare with Miss Universe? I mean. ‘Grabe kayo ha. “Nung night na yun. “When you analyze what I said. I don’t even see myself as the sexiest. she walked down the ramp of the awarding party anyway. but people wanted me to be here. sobra yung pagiging importante ko sa inyo na parang feeling ko ako si Pia ngayong gabi. When disparaged for having thick thighs. Kumbaga. which makes her all the more alluring. and FHM made that possible. I can jump. all types of sexiness we just have different ways of showing it. I can even kick. Jessy continues to speak out because she feels she needs to stand her ground. they’re functional. I mean. “It’s really hard when you’re in this industry. One or two bad comments. She’ll retort to a “fat” comment with another stunning photo of her in a two-piece suit. “Siguro [what gives me strength] is the dream of sending a message across. they all float in your head and in front of you. that’s where I get my strength. So siguro I’m carrying other women [with me] too. they build you up again. I’m just blessed to have legs! Bash all you want but uhm—I have legs!” When people decried that she didn’t deserve to be FHM’s Sexiest. I just felt so happy and important. I can take it. I can walk.” So despite the backlash and unnecessary rage. I do Muay Thai (she has the bruises and friction burns to prove it). Parang nakikita mo yung words. because now she stands up for the women who are atypically considered sexy. that the responsibility of being The Sexiest in the Land has actually become more substantial. and braved the critical public who once again became furious with her when she pointed out amusingly that she ranked higher than Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach. and they tell you your strengths instead of your weaknesses. who are there to support you. she’ll quip. if they want to wear that damn swimsuit then wear it! There are all types of confidence. I do pole dancing for crying out loud (Jessy started pole dancing for a role in Maalala Mo Kaya. But a thousand—sometimes it gets too much. “Okay lang.” .’ Ganun ka-grabe yung overwhelming feeling.






as she unguardedly snacks on a banana mid-interview. FHM . she wanted to be a pilot. she doesn’t do it for the boys. or vain. Without the perfectly coiffed poise expected of a girly girl. kahit ano gawin ko. as a young girl. they have this image of you na dapat fit ka. the only reason you should do those things. the radiance with which it seduces. Not for anyone else. And maybe finally. even when they think she leads as the sexiest. the blithe way with which she carries herself is the same kind of carefree demeanor you will see of her on the news. her beauty was too evident to ignore. Her mom shares that her daughter was never really one who needed to be the center of attention. Ako kasi. when she sits with her legs uncrossed.JESSY SUGGESTS THAT SHE ISN’T A COOKIE-CUTTER BABE. or healthy.” Jessy Mendiola could care less about what anyone thinks. And I’m strong this way. or maybe we all need. her back slightly hunched. or dapat mas maliit yung ganito mo or mas maliit yung ganyan. she does for herself: she didn’t do it for the list. “Hindi talaga siya mawawala.” she says exasperatingly gesturing toward her thighs. It shows. it’s about time a girl is recognized by men-or womenfor exactly that. too: when she throws on an oversized camo t-shirt in between layouts. And this. that the middle-child out of three is more insouciant to the fame. which she thinks is one of the facets of her charm. The first and only reason why you should strive to be fit. agrees: she recalls that Jessy never wanted to be an actress anyway. her feisty conviction. But maybe even then. coupled with her innate sex appeal. and she sure as hell didn’t mean to piss so many girls off. who is on the set to shower her with support. not for what they say. “Dahil sasabihin nila ‘sexiest’ ka. is because you want it for yourself. And the best part is that in everything she does. which is probably also why blunders like backlash are something she can easily brush off. or for what they want you to do but for yourself. Her mother. or sexy—the main reason. She sees herself as one of the boys. ganyan siya eh. the fact that she has valid things to stand up for in the first place—all of these things build up to a woman that maybe we’ve all been waiting for.

this interview was done on august 1, 2016, three weeks before the senate hearing on extra-judicial
killings chaired by sen. leila de lima, one of president rodrigo duterte's most vocal critic of the
death toll on our current war on drugs. some of the questions here were asked at the senate inquiry
as well, confirming them as national concerns. you saw the pnp chief slog it through two grueling
days of explaining and justifying the actions of the police as well as their efforts to resolve “deaths
under investigation” (the use of the term “extra-judicial killing” had been a thorny issue right at the
beginning of the hearing).
he was true to form at the senate—brawny, not one to mince words, sometimes funny. the same man we
saw at his office in camp crame, and funnier by several notches. but maybe not as mythic as people make
him out to be. he was all too human when we saw him—in the course of the interview, he was coughing
sick. inside his mammoth chest, common viruses were eating him up. “halos wala na akong tulog,” he
complained of the stress of the job.

Minsan barangay kapitan mismo ang may makasarili na pag-iisip kaya kailangan talaga bina-validate. What is your take? Daw. but stories from relatives. On the drug watchlist: there are reports of people who have not been involved in drugs— either as a user or a pusher—whose names end up on the list. [Although at the senate hearing.

It all comes to a head when current House Speaker and Davao del Norte Congressman Pantaleon Alvarez filed a bill seeking to lower the minimum age of criminal liability among minors. like murder.” SHIFTING PERSPECTIVES Part of the problem it seems is the perception that the public has regarding minors committing crimes. and multiply it a thousand fold. this will revert the current minimum age of criminal liability of 15 years old back to as young as nine years old. signalling ‘no’.

That is the outrage the Filipino general public feel about juvenile delinquents when we see or hear about them in the media. has become the favorite punching bag of public officials and spokespersons. And if you look at our records a lot of them went to jail for petty crimes. executive secretary of the Juvenile Justice Welfare Council (JJWC). is RA 9344 to blame for the seemingly rising number of kids who crime in the country? “Ang pinakamalaking balakid namin sa batas ay yung misunderstanding. “If you do that you are actually violating the law.

This is where parties come fiercely at odds. This is the reason why everybody feels so much animosity towards a certain law that many supposes allow children to escape accountability.

Indeed. punitive justice is still the popular mindset among Filipinos today. Kapag yung bata hindi nakukulong. If media would base their reports on this data. She would have been turned over to her parents because she was below the age of criminal liability. Parties would go to the barangay and settle things there before the matter goes to court.” Oco adds that this is an all-too familiar refrain in a song that her council.” laments Oco. it is an ideal nonetheless that society must inevitably move towards. especially with a sitting president and a chief PNP who are hard-hitting and aggressive in going after criminals. and abandoned by her parents. the possibility of that child resorting to criminal activity would be zero. you would not see it that way.” says • fhmphilofficial in cases involving heinous crimes. “If you look at our situation. in the barangay level. “It is this . it’s really hard to make an objective discussion regarding the minimum age of criminal liability because the Filipino people. are really sick of crimes happening all around.
