Philippines leader defends onstage kiss: "We enjoyed it"

Philippines leader defends onstage kiss:

Another advocacy group, Every Woman, which was founded to combat misogyny under the regime of Duterte, said the president had never viewed women as "real people, but merely objects like all the other perks".

Though many Filipinos defended their leader's action by saying that it was a harmless kiss, several critics have expressed their disgust and described it as his "perverted way" of taunting his female critics, who often call him a misogynist for his remarks about women.

"Men in power should not use the same power to force himself on any woman", Tañada said.

The two women then approached the president on stage, and as a sign of gratitude after receiving the book, both of them kissed the president's right hand, before attempting to leave.

"Well I think if all women here would sign a petition for me to resign, I will resign", Duterte told a media briefing around midnight on Tuesday upon his return from an official visit to South Korea. "It's just to give people fun".

The state-run Philippine News Agency identified the woman as Bea Kim and posted a short video interview with her on its Facebook page.

Anna Pinili, a churchgoer who considers herself a devout catholic, said Duterte had good intentions, but could have handled it better.

Despite the president's acts of misogyny, he remains popular among Filipinos in the Philippines and overseas who mostly depend on social media content from pro-government bloggers.

In the 2016 presidential election campaign Duterte sparked controversy over comments made on the rape and killing of an Australian missionary during a prison riot in the southern city of Davao in 1989 while he was the mayor. "I would pull the woman's - down somewhere along the empty hall there", he said.

Kim would later reveal that she was "nervous, excited, and scared" before the kiss, especially since her husband was sitting in front of the stage. There is nothing wrong in a simple kiss - you cause an uproar. "They are just jealous", he said.

He added that he expected his two daughters, one with his former wife and another with his current partner, to confront him about the incident.
