Philippines National’s Fist, Manny Pacquiao does not only have his approaching retirement bout versus Timothy Bradley springing up, he is also campaigning for a seat in the Philippines Senate. The boxing sensation made headlines yet again, however this time, for assertions created away from the boxing ring.
A viral video continues to be making the rounds in the Philippines, showing Pacquiao responding to the media and voicing out his controversial position towards same-sex marriage.
“It’s common sense,” the present Sarangani province congressman said in Filipino. “Do you see any animals that go male to male, or female to female?”
“So the animals are even better (than humans),” Pacquiao stated with a smile. “Because they know how to distinguish from male to male or female to female. Right?”
“Now if we allow male to male or female to female, then that makes us worse than animals.”
Although same-sex marriage has yet to be legalized in the Philippines, naturally, Pacquiao’s claims comparing it to animals have triggered a significant stir in the country.
It’s also well worth mentioning that you will find numerous species (including mammals) which practice conduct that might be translated as homosexual or bisexual of nature. Whether it is real sexual activity, courtship, or even raising a child, those have all been extensively recorded that occurs with same-sex couples in the animal kingdom.
As for verifying with guarantee the actual motives, or sexual orientation, of animals that display those kind of behavior, that’s another issue for researchers to determine. In either case, it exists, and also basically shows how much Manny’s assumption is not actually a “common sense”.
