'Aleck Baldwin doesn’t deserve a Filipina wife'
MARK JOSEPH H. UBALDE, GMANews.TV
05/18/2009 | 10:51 PM


OH, NO YOU DON'T. While Alec Baldwin is thinking about buying himself a Philippine bride, migrant groups are saying Filipinas deserve better than the divorcee actor. AP/GMANews.TV File Photos
MANILA, Philippines - First, Teri Hatcher questioned the medical certificates of Filipino doctors. Then, British show Harry & Paul ridiculed a Filipina maid as a sex symbol. And just recently, Chinese columnist Chip Tsao called the Philippines a nation of slaves.

Now, it’s 30 Rock star Alec Baldwin's turn, joining the ranks of "internationally-recognized" celebrities who have maligned Filipinos, according to critics.

Baldwin – a divorced father of a 13-year-old girl – told David Letterman in one of his last interviews on the Late Show, how he taught of getting, or buying, himself a Filipina bride.

“I think about getting a Filipino mail-order bride at this point or a Russian one, I don’t care, I’m 51," Baldwin told Letterman in a May 12 interview. [See: Alec Baldwin's Letterman interview]

Seemingly delivered in jest, Baldwin’s remark caused the audience to break into laughter and prompted the show’s host, Letterman, to respond: "Get one for me [also], for later."

Totally foul


But Baldwin’s joke left a bitter taste in the mouth for lawmaker and women’s rights activist Risa Hontiveros.

“He totally doesn’t deserve a Filipina wife," Hontiveros told GMANews.TV on Monday evening. “He meant that as a joke but it was totally foul."

Hontiveros, who lodged a protest against the producers of Harry & Paul last year, is worried Filipinos are being pigeonholed as either domestic workers or brides-for-hire.

"His comment is already anecdotal evidence of the growing phenomenon of mail-order-brides and the perception of foreigners that those are Filipinas."

Jean Enriquez, executive director of the Coalition Against Trafficking in Women-Asia Pacific, was also disappointed that such a "racist" comment came from an actor like Baldwin.

The 51-year-old actor is a board member of People For the American Way and a vocal supporter of the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).

“By joking about mail-order brides he is trivializing human smuggling," Enriquez said. “It shows that some actors portray themselves as sharp on shows but are actually not in real life." [See: Alec Baldwin's 'RP mail-order bride remark' irks senator]

Human smuggling

Between 20,000 and 100,000 Filipino women and children are being pushed to human smuggling, according to Humantrafficking.org.

Foreign tourists, particularly from other Asian countries, sexually exploit women and children in the Philippines, according to the group.

In 2007, the Philippines was placed in Tier 2 by the US Department of State’s Trafficking in Persons Report for not fully complying with the Trafficking Victims Protection Act’s minimum standards for the elimination of trafficking.

Since the late ‘80s the Philippine government has stepped up efforts to curb the exportation of Filipina women as brides for men in Europe and the Americas, said Ellene Sana, executive director of the Center for Migrants Advocacy.

Facilitating or arranging a marriage between a Filipina and a foreigner is prohibited under Republic Act 6955 of the Anti-Mail-Order Bride Law of 1990.

Violators face imprisonment of between six to eight years, and the payment of a fine between P8,000 and P20,000. A foreign national caught engaged in such a scheme will also be meted the same penalties then deported and barred from entering the Philippines for life.

With Baldwin’s disregard, or ignorance of such problems in the Philippines, Sana hopes the veteran actor will learn his lesson the hard way.

“I hope he comes to the Philippines, meets a Pinay and get dumped," Sana said. [See: Ex-sexy star Aleck Bovick lightens up Senate mood] - with reports from Mark Merueñas, GMANews.TV

Totally uncalled for. Mr. Baldwin, if you ever go to the ER for any problems, am sure you will be treated by probably a:

1. Filipino ICU/CCU/ ER/ OR/ Anesthesia Nurse
2. Filipino Physician.

Smart alec has already apologized for his goof.

He also needs to know that the conduct of business involving mail-order brides has already been outlawed in the Philippines.

we got hurt becaue, somehow, there's truth to the filipina mail-order-bride phenomenon. we got hurt because the joke came from someone not of our own kind. kung kita-kita ra pod niingon ato, mapasaylo nato. however, we receive the comment in a bad light because we want to protect ourselves, our name, our dignity.

pareha ra na sa mga "bisaya" jokes. kung mga tagalog mag-joke joke masuko ta. kung kita ra mga bisaya, ok ra man.

anyhow, what we need to do is let our light shine even brighter for others to see what we are, what we are capable of, what we can offer. someday, they will recognize that Filipinos come from a great race: resilient but strong, tolerant but not totally meek, patient but headstrong and stubborn; and we do get what we want. no matter what! harrr! hehehehe!

He did apologize already for his insensitive remarks.  I read it somewhere or I could be wrong that he is doing some "atonement" for his comments.

tinuod jud ang tanan, napilitan ang uban para lang makaahon sa kapobrehon.  hinaut unta gumawa ng hakbang ang atong gobyerno para maiibsan ang ganitong problema.

the government is doing its part. but what can a poor government do. so let's help each other. let's do our part. make your advocacy known. help an NGO, or donate to a foundation; perhaps, help a relative get education. in our small ways, let's be part of our country's progress. (amen!)

Mail-order bride is a label applied to a woman who publishes her intent to marry someone from another — usually more developed — country. Siguro ang pagsabot sa uban aning mail order bride kanang igo ra i deliver ang bride sa groom. Mail order bride also include katong nangamenyo ug foriegner thru penpal, internet chat ug personal introduction sa ubang relatives. Di man tanang rason tungod sa kapobrehon nga magmenyo ug foriegner,depende raman na sa taste sa tawo nga gusto ang uban ug pinoy ray menyuan ug kasagaran sad gusto magmenyo ug foreigner kay dili man gyud nato ikadeny gwapo jud sila bisan ug bali balihon pa plus stable sila financially ug known sad ning westerner nga mo trait ug wife like a queen.
I never publish my name for intent to marry, na meet nako akong husbang kay siya ang nagpapublish.So maconsider ning akong husband nga mail order husband.Gisulatan ni nako akong husband kay nalooy man ko naghunahuna nga wala gyud siguro mo reply sa iya gipublish kay iya gibutang didto farm laborer but what impress me more kay very humble kaayo siya sa iya introduction ug ang babae nga iya gipangita murag ga describe siya nako hahahah.Mao to kasugdanan sa among mga letters,email ug phone call until na develop ug we agreed nga magkita.I was even right tagsa ra gyud ang ingreply sa iya gipublish nakaingon gud akong bana bisan man diay kono Filipina mamili ug mahadlok magmenyo ug pobreng mag uuma.Usa raman gyud akong gipangayo sa Ginoo nga ug mamenyo ko mamenyo ko ug relihiyoso kanang kabalo morosaryo.Wala man koy nakita nga pinoy nga relihiyoso ug kara adlaw magrosaryo  murag tua man tanan sila sa seminaryo ug diri nakita nako ang tanan sa akong bana.Pag abot gud nako diri iya gift nako nice altar nga ang Blessed Virgin Mary pareha mi kataas.Mga pasalubong sa bana sa akong mga family pagbisita niya sa atua to meet me is rosary siya mismo naghimo.Kinsay di ma inlove ana.
