Bata Bata Pa'no Ka Ginawa?

Hanggang sa ang Pa'no Ka ePUB #180 bata ay hindi na bata kundi ama o ina Ano ang ituuro niya ngayon sa kanyang mga anak Lahat ng dapa This book is my 158th read book for this year but just the second time that I am giving a 1 star rating As much as possible I don t give this rating because there are always somethings to like in a book Just imagine the hours the writer put in writing the book and prior to its release he or she must have said a lot of prayers asking God to make readers buy and read itBut I also have to be honest to myself right I think Bautista should still be thankful that I bought and read her book Anyway this is my second by her Last year I read and liked her 2nd novel Dekada 70 3 stars so this month August being the Month of our National Language I picked up this book hoping that this was as good as Dekada After all Dekada won the Palanca our euivalent of Pulitzer in 1983 and this book Bata Bata won the following year 1984 So I said to myself wow two years in a row this book must be really really goodBut I got disappointed Reasons1 Too feminine I always believe that books like human beings have gender This book is written by a woman only for women It is too alienating for us men Lualhati seems to have this itch to rally all women by her campaign slogan It s not a man s world What you men can do we can do too Oh well who says that this is still a man s world Hello Wake up little Suzie It s the 21st century and you can already exercise your right of suffrage both father and mother are now working and they fight when they don t agree many woman have children without marrying society no longer look down on them and yes women can do almost all the jobs that we men do and nobody gets surprised any In short this book is outdated It s passeTake note that I did not say feminist I have no problem with feminist books or anything that defends eual rights for women I said too feminine and that made the book extremely alienating2 Rehash of Dekada So many similarities between her 2nd book to this 3rd book Not only about her outdated slogan but also about the missing child the protagonist desire to work and her right to think of herself It was as if I was still listening to Amanda Bartolome the protagonist in Dekada instead of Lea Bustamante the protagonist here in Bata Bata Same banana only the name has changed3 Lea is a sex maniac Oh dear Lord Stay away from Lea Bustamante She is married Since she doesn t want to stop working when her husband gets assigned to another place she calls it uits even if they already have a son When her husband leaves she gets herself another man and now they also have a child a daughter Then when both of her men have their own new wives she asks her co worker to have sex with her and it is for her

T niyang matutuhan ngayon Bata Bata Epubpa lang hindi pagkamasunurin at pagkakimi kundi pagkibo pag may sasabihin at paglaban pag kai It is easy and lazy to be frank to think that Bata Bata Pa no Ka Ginawa is a recycled Dekada 70 Bautista s earlier novel I almost did just because Lea the main character is a mother like Amanda was in DekadaIt was made immediately apparent however that Lea is a modern and unconventional woman in a the romantic sense with one husband in marriage and another in bed and b the socio political sense she is an activist and works in a human rights organization She is a woman whom society and even readers would not approve of based on their boxed beliefs of how women should act behave and live To drive home the point almost everything Lea does is initially repulsive to the reader thank you patriarchy and internalized misogyny And although there is nothing that Lea did that the other men in the novel did not do Lea alone is under a microscope not only because she is the protagonist but also because that is how it feels to be a woman in this society That even though Lea is a modern woman who comparatively enjoys freedoms than the older generation she is still not spared from the feudal patriarchal views imposed by her husband her lover and even her fellow women In short she is not truly free Women are not truly free not in 1983 when this book was written and not even today Not when contemporary society still blames the woman when she is raped or sexually harassed Not when women in many parts of the world are still trafficked to become brides or sex slaves Not when women are told to dress one way or another Not when many women still have lower wages just because of her gender Not when women s labor is considered cheap and oftentimes invisible The list goes on In Bautista s own words Ang buhay pala ay ibang iba sa mga palabas sa tv Life truly is different from what we see on tv ie that women are independent now and therefore should not wantBesides Bautista s feminist tone should not be the only takeaway from this novel She touches on workers rights the oppression of the poor that kills not one person but the whole family the corrupt governments that ignite revolutions and the disillusionment and awakening of the masses as well as the apatheticIt is easy and sexist to be frank to think that Bata Bata Pa no Ka Ginawa is another feminist book another book about women or another book about mothers As if our stories are not worth immortalization or that we are merely given privileges or free passes to tell them Why shouldn t writers write about women Or mothers Because who are you without yours Catching Fire however that Lea is a modern and unconventional woman in a the romantic sense with one The Wiley Handbook of Obsessive Compulsive Disorders, 2 Volume Set (Wiley Clinical Psychology Handbooks) husband in marriage and another in bed and b the socio political sense she is an activist and works in a The Apple Bandit (Nancy Drew: Notebooks, human rights organization She is a woman whom society and even readers would not approve of based on their boxed beliefs of Incubus how women should act behave and live To drive The Sharpe Companion The Early Years home the point almost everything Lea does is initially repulsive to the reader thank you patriarchy and internalized misogyny And although there is nothing that Lea did that the other men in the novel did not do Lea alone is under a microscope not only because she is the protagonist but also because that is Tantra y salchicha. La vía sabrosa al sexo sagrado how it feels to be a woman in this society That even though Lea is a modern woman who comparatively enjoys freedoms than the older generation she is still not spared from the feudal patriarchal views imposed by Textbook of Clinical Hemodynamics her Running to the Edge: A Band of Misfits and the Guru Who Unlocked the Secrets of Speed husband Down and Out in Paris and London her lover and even The French Cafe her fellow women In short she is not truly free Women are not truly free not in 1983 when this book was written and not even today Not when contemporary society still blames the woman when she is raped or sexually Lehninger Principles of Biochemistry harassed Not when women in many parts of the world are still trafficked to become brides or sex slaves Not when women are told to dress one way or another Not when many women still PHP Pocket Reference have lower wages just because of Signaler un problème her gender Not when women s labor is considered cheap and oftentimes invisible The list goes on In Bautista s own words Ang buhay pala ay ibang iba sa mga palabas sa tv Life truly is different from what we see on tv ie that women are independent now and therefore should not wantBesides Bautista s feminist tone should not be the only takeaway from this novel She touches on workers rights the oppression of the poor that kills not one person but the whole family the corrupt governments that ignite revolutions and the disillusionment and awakening of the masses as well as the apatheticIt is easy and sexist to be frank to think that Bata Bata Pa no Ka Ginawa is another feminist book another book about women or another book about mothers As if our stories are not worth immortalization or that we are merely given privileges or free passes to tell them Why shouldn t writers write about women Or mothers Because who are you without yours
