FROM THE EDITOR

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
misogynists?
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?”

REACTIONS

SOlENN IS COmINg !

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!

ThE BITTER PIll

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.

and it wasn’t even connected to this [FHM 100 Sexiest]. “I always post swimsuit pictures. her face aglow. you’d have easily given in to the urge to linger. The actress’ steady rise to fame landed her roles such as the lead in the 2013 remake of the 1992 Mexican telenovela Maria Mercedes. “I took it lightly lang kasi I wasn’t even rooting for myself. 1. inviting. showing off assets that she knew she had but didn’t really make an effort to show off. on the beach. but really. made them whimper and weak in the knees. But she is still perplexed. because it’s so overwhelming. faint trace of freckles dotting her cheeks. But while the photo had captured the attention of men. she had also. only that the list has been dominated by familiar personalities for the past few years that it took everyone by surprise when Jessy shot up the ranks from no.” says the 23-year-old actress of the unimaginable circumstance of it all. JESSY MENDIOLA WASN’T EVEN TRYING.” She has inklings as to how it may have happened: it was probably that Boracay photo she posted on Instagram last summer. but carry a more serious tone when she wants to stress on real concerns.” Jessy says of the photo. . It feels so unreal. Sabel. she says. to this year’s no. beguiling with her sheepish grin. but completely self-aware in the seductive way she preened. “Not even in my dreams. It’s so normal for people to see me in a swimsuit bakit ngayon na pinost ko ’to. There she was tantalizing.” It was the intimacy of the photo that had everyone abuzz. It’s not like she surreptitiously worked her way to the top. lahat sobrang ‘Wow. I wasn't even campaigning. the summer sun gently touching her fair skin. Her reign as FHM’s Sexiest happened almost accidentally. that helped push her up the ranks. “Yun yung pinaka-nag-viral daw. bigla akong nag-zoom up sa polls.THE FUNNY THING IS.” says Jessy. “Of course I am very happy. Kaya nagiging candid na lang ako about it. caused uproar among women who began to attack the actress’s physicality. She is honest and funny and she’ll tackle the “controversial issues” with lighthearted jest.” There is a casualness with the way Jessy talks that might cause one to mistake her indifference with being aloof. bakit parang sobrang ingay’. for some reason. like she wanted you to be there. and if you saw it. 23 last year. it’s honesty. She was so casual in her beaming sexuality. “Dun na pumasok yung mga bashers and haters kasi I think nung time na yun. The one that captured the actress in a red string bikini. I’m always on the go. She was luring viewers in. as well as the title role in the afternoon show. it feels like it’s still not happening. I just posted a picture.

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

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

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

THE NATIONAL AGENDA

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.
still, you knew he was the rock.
First off, we want to re-introduce you to our young
