Philippine President Duterte Tells Troops to Shoot Female Rebels in the Vagina

Clean up ‘cesspool’ Boracay or else warns Duterte

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, wearing a military uniform, gestures as he attends the 67th founding anniversary of the First Scout Ranger regiment in San Miguel town, Bulacan province, north of Manila, Philippines November 24, 2017.

'There's a new order coming from mayor.

"Duterte's latest nasty remark openly encourages violence against women, contributes to the impunity on such, and further presented himself as the epitome of misogyny and fascism terribly rolled in one", said Philippine congresswoman Emmi de Jesus in a statement. The word "vagina" was replaced with a dash in the transcript.

This is not the first time that Duterte has made controversial and misogynistic remarks.

"The reason I'm buying helicopters is because I want to finish them off", he said.

He even told Muslim fighter inMarawai that they can rape upto three women without fearing punishment.

In the lead-up to his presidential election win in 2016, critics were outraged when he recalled a 1989 prison riot in which an Australian missionary was killed, and inmates had lined up to rape her. But she was so handsome, the mayor should have been first.

The port has been touted as a way for India to establish trade routes that bypass its rival Pakistan, but the project has seen multiple delays.

But Duterte warned that may not be the case for much longer because of what he said were piles of uncollected garbage just 20-25 meters from the beach and sewage flowing into the sea.

Duterte regularly denigrates and threatens women, but when questioned he says it was just a joke. The official transcript notes that the audience laughed. "Come on. Just laugh", said presidential spokesperson Harry Roque in a video posted to social media.

Duterte eventually canceled the plan after several senators threatened to block the sale over human rights concerns.

She added that Duterte is taking "state terrorism against women and the people to a whole new level", and pushing soldiers "to commit more bloody human rights violations and grave abuses of global humanitarian law".

Human Rights Watch researcher Caloy Conde said in a statement that Duterte's remark was "the latest in a series of misogynist, derogatory and demeaning statements he has made about women".

"It encourages state forces to commit sexual violence during armed conflict, which is a violation of worldwide humanitarian law", the statement added.
