SINAGOT ni Bimby Aquino ang tanong ng marami tungkol sa kanyang sexual orientation if he is a gay or straight guy. Ginawa ni Bimby ang announcement sa video na inupload ng ni Kris Aquino sa Facebook.
Tanong ni Kris sa anak, ano daw ba ang nararamdaman nito every time na tinatawag siyang bakla ng ilang netizens.
Sagot ng binatilyo sa ina, “Wala, I don’t really feel anything. Oh sige, if you think I’m gay, alright dude. But you do realize that the gay community sa Philippines is a strong community. And you do realize that I’m 14. It did not go through my mind, because I know what I am. I’m straight as an arrow.”
Nagbigay naman ng panahag si Kris na tanggap niya kahit pa ano ang maging sexual orientation ng anak.
“I want to bring this out also. Whatever you are, I’ll accept. I really don’t care, honestly. Whatever you choose to be, it will be fine with me for as long as you excel,” sabi pa niya.
Idiniin pa ni Kris na, “I am so anti-homophobia.” Na sinagot naman ni Bimby ng, “I love gays. I love LGBTQ.”
Muli ay tinanong ni Kris si Bimby kung kinuwestiyon ba niya ang sarili about his sexuality.
Sagot ni Bimby, “No not at all. I love girls…I’ll set the record straight, I’m straight. I like women. I don’t like boys.”
“Whatever you choose to be, it’s none of their business,” reaksyon naman ni Kris.
Ayon pa kay Bimby, hindi importante sa kanya kung anuman ang opinion o iniisip ng ibang tao.
“They’re entitled to their opinion on what they think about me, just as long as you don’t attack me. If you say, ‘I think Bimb is gay,’ I’ll respect that. I’ll say, ‘No, I’m not gay.’
“But if you say, ‘Beki si Bimb, kadiri!’ That’s wrong. As long as you debate with someone at may respeto ka sa tao, okay lang, sure. If you have different opinions, okay lang ‘yan, sure,” lahad pa ng bunsong anak ni Kris.
