    This is even more significant when one realizes that she's from the province of Bataan (remember WWII?) where the people are not as sophisticated as those living in the metropolitan area. The Filipinos should be proud.

    This actually isn't as surprising as the video wants it to be. In lots of these super conservative and religious places, transsexualism is viewed as an appropriate "solution" for homosexuality. Vice did an episode on Pakistani transsexuals, and they actually have more rights there than one would think. They're treated far better than gay men because becoming women is what the people feel homosexual men should do.
