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

gOTTA COllECT ThEm All!

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.
Francis Amparo Nasinlac, via
Facebook

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

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

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

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

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.

For some. is pumunta sa barangay mismo at presinto na nakakakilala sa mga drug addicts at hindi. and there is a sense of unease. they have to produce a certain number of people on the watch list because. Minsan barangay kapitan mismo ang may makasarili na pag-iisip kaya kailangan talaga bina-validate. it eerily reminds them of Martial Law in the ‘70s.

Essentially it is a concept of restorative justice.” She adds that whenever a heinous crime committed by a juvenile gets highlighted the minimum age of criminal liability is usually pinpointed as a flaw in the law. in the barangay level. juvenile delinquents will get a relatively light sentence than their adult counterparts.
