Marocharim is a 21-year-old college senior from the University of the Philippines Baguio, majoring in Social Anthropology and has a minor in Political Science. He lives with his parents, his brother and his sister in Baguio City - having been born and raised there all his life. He is the author of three book-versions of The Marocharim Experiment.

Most of his time is spent at school, where he can be found in the UP Baguio Library reading or scribbling notes, and sometimes hanging out with his friends or by himself in the kiosks, or the main lobby. During his spare time, he continues writing. When not in school he hangs out with his friends, or takes long walks around Baguio City to, as he puts it, "get lost."

Homophobic Hokey Pokey

< hmmm... >

   Is there anything remotely offensive about gay people?  I admit to being homophobic, all right.  I'm a bad judge of character because I'm quite prejudiced when it comes to gender issues involving alternative engenderments.  I thrive on the comedy that demeans and offends gay people, and it's not in the interest of satire or humor.

   There were a few people who came to me once and said that I should stop using my "gay analogies" because they found my anal-phallic references "bastos."  I won't make promises: when it comes to political correctness and gender sensitivity, I'm a bit of a laggard.

   Gender sensitivity is not an "awakening:" it's more of a "learning process," and I take an awfully long time to learn things.  UP is full of openly gay people as it is, and exposing me to all the gayness in the world won't make a gay man out of me.  The truth is, in six years in UP, I never really had a full understanding of alternative engenderments.  To be honest, I'm still very, very homophobic that at this point in my life, I'm still offended by cross-dressers and people who flaunt their gayness through means of exteriority.

   Now is there anything wrong with that?  Yes, but only if you don't exert the effort to learn about alternative engendering.  But it's all a matter of what "understanding" is: I cannot put myself in the shoes of the Other.  That's just the way it is, and that's the way it will always be.  My understanding of being gay will always be a second-hand understanding: we can't set aside a day of trading places.

   So there.
