Top 10 Problems with Filipino People

Filipinos have had pros and cons but here are some that are irritating. (I'm Filipino too and I think its really horrible that these cons are here a lot) (Ito, proof na ako ay Filipino) (Government is not here because I'm talking about fellow citizens)

The Top Ten

1 They use jejemons

I know jejemon is pathetic, but I don't think it's still used as often now that phone keyboards are mostly QWERTY.

Jejemons just prove you can't spell, its horrible! (Ex. "Pki sbi ky Nikki na nndto na me") it just messes up and it won't help in spelling. - thesimsvampires

2 They are poor

Is that really a problem?

Damn right!

this is bs

3 Racism

What country doesn't have racism attitude? Can someone name just one country? Is either in color of skin or the place where the person came from. I think, every country have the same attitude. They are all racism. In Philippines, racism is only a way to make jokes or to have fun but not to offend someone. And if you think you are different from others because you are treated like that, it's not about being different from them. Even you are the same with them, still you will have the same treatment. Because racism is not about being different from others here in Philippines. It's just about making jokes and funny moments that would make you annoyed or laugh at the time. Filipinos always love to make jokes; especially, Cebuano people. It's their culture to make fun just for laugh sake.

Wow! Isn't this list racist itself? How Ironic!

I'm a Filipino and I admit about the racism circulating the Philippines. Most Filipinos have this thought that darker skin isn't pretty. They constantly make fun of people regarding their color and race. Most of the youth (and even some old ones) have no problem with saying the "n" word, because they think it is a trend it makes them look cool. Lastly, when the Philippines loses over another country in any competition (specially pageants), they will find a way to make fun of the certain county's culture and appearance.

I don't think Filipinos are racist. Maybe with jokes, but they aren't even meant to be offensive. They're just meant for laughs and you're expected to take jokes.

4 They don't try to fix problems

Filipinos will usually just say the problem (Ex. "It's so corrupt, everything's horrible and nothing to be proud about") and they don't say a solution, I think that this can stop if Filipinos won't be very problematic and use about 1% - 10% more brain energy to give a solution. - thesimsvampires

Yeah, most of the time, they blame the government, but when the government actually does something good, someone gets powerful enough to turn the people into thinking more pessimistically, thus leading to more complaints and less solutions.

As a Filipino myself, they are fixing problems as they elected Duterte.

5 They have more people than resources
6 Pinoy Pride

When there is a youtube video about countries and they saw that Philippines is in there, they would jump on the comment section immediately and say "Proud to be Filipino". "Where are my Filipinos at? " They act like they are the best group of people in the world.

I don't like it how some hypocrites here cheer for someone when he/she won something overseas, but when that someone fails to win another, they (hypocrites) will insult that person to God knows when it would end.

This list is racist. I feel like there shouldn't be a list just listing off problems of a specific country, especialy if most of them aren't that huge. - MaxAurelius

Pinoy Pride is very overused and its really irritating, do not say it out loud even if its small (Ex. "Filipinos won a boat race! Pinoy Pride! ") This will lead to more negative comments and reviews to Filipinos. - thesimsvampires

7 Eating dogs

There are dogs everywhere, there are kinda a pest there.
(I went to a outdoor beach restaurant and while we where pre-paying our food A group of dogs ate my food! )

Yo, we don't eat dogs here.. we all have one as a pet, and I don't even see any of my neighbors eat dogs, or talk about eating dogs.

I know not all eat dogs but its just gruesome, nobody wants dogs to be extinct here in Philippines, that would give us negative feedback from dog lovers! - thesimsvampires

8 Most Filipinos are pathological liars

Filipinos win the Gold Medal in telling lies.

Yes. Liars and scammers 100%

They lie incredibly often even when they do not need to!

9 No Discipline

Filipino people always complain about how hard life is but in reality they don’t do anything to improve themselves.

10 They make fake stories

I had encountered many Filipinos who make up things (Ex. "Filipinos hate Americans, how pathetic" or "Filipinos are usually wrong spellers, ugh I hate being Filipino") and it doesn't help but get more bad comments, remember that if you are rude to yourself, you won't develop. - thesimsvampires

Such as the story behind Marcos regime which was revised by propagandists. - joshsanz

Some of those fake stories are best for laughs, though.

The Contenders

11 They try to fit in with Americans and Europeans

Doesn't everyone everywhere want to be like someone else. And this isn't necessarily true. I think for some reason people think Asians and Filipinos are "unmodern." - MaxAurelius

They try to fit in (at least they make an attempt, unlike some nationalities I could mention) but they have trouble understanding American and British slang and their women seem to junk things up in carrier bags and into huge piles.

12 They are arrogant

I get sick of hearing about how every backward thing they do is 'just their culture' while they have a Christian-mandated population crisis leading to a pollution crisis...and that they are so full of pride that any statement uttered about the merits of your own country results in you being called arrogant.

13 Inferiority complex
14 If you are a boy and they know you didn't get circumcised (tuli) they won't stop bugging you about it and call you "supot" (it means gay)

The worst part is when you go to a group of people and ask them to join you, and they know you didn't get circumcised, they would instantly call you "supot" then discriminate you form any games you went to. Being a man is not by piercing off a chunk of your meat! Just at least tell why you circumcision is needed.

They just make fun of you for not feeling the pain meanwhile most countries don't practice this suffering

15 They can't accept opinions

True, you can see this traits on social media. Nakakahiya pero totoo!

16 They put Jesus's faces in every house and vehicle

It isn't bad. Filipinos are religious, and I don't see anything bad with it.

What's wrong about that? - Fandom_Lover

Haha so true

17 They act superior and elitist for accomplishments they have done compared to others and other countries

Comments on Lea Salonga playing the role of Jasmine from "Aladdin" and Mulan from "Mulan" really gets them going. You are so proud only because a Filipina is singing those two characters? How special...

Being mentioned in a famous youtuber that posted a philippines-related video or when a Filipina actress plays a role on a famous movie makes them act smug and feel good about themselves.

18 All they care about is Facebook

I don't get why they keep spreading rumors to every possible people they see. For example, they go to a post saying "If you don't pass this to 100 people, you will be forced to wake up at 3 am and you will see a monster under your bed". Like seriously, I know monsters exist in fiction movies but you don't have to go there. And it's extremely annoying to have hundreds of your friends to that and your notifications burst out with those messages.

19 Are easily bribed

They would sell out anyone for a bowl of rice

20 They jump to conclusions

They would usually see someone white and say "That person is totally American, I mean he/she is white! " and it can cause a very deep comment... - thesimsvampires

21 Pabebe

Pabebe is just rude, its also just showing hatred... - thesimsvampires

22 They don't think critically
23 Mañana habit

This has to be somewhere near the top.

Famous lines "bukas nalang" or "mamaya nalang" whixh translate to "i'll do it tomorrow" or "i'll do it later" they tend to let their laziness rule over them

24 They type like "o m g I c u @ k f c u cool ;))) <3"

I also agree it is annoying I deleted my friend's number when she started texting like that... - Fandom_Lover

What on earth doesn't that mean! - Toucan

25 Get offended too easily

It's true unfortunately. Overly sensitive and I'm not exactly sure why that is always the case...

26 They call Filipino haters Filipinos so they won't feel bad

That's actually better than calling them "racist". At least Filipinos like me don't get offended over those things.

27 They're corrupt

I maybe that nationality but I'm ashamed of it because it corrupted my dad into abusing me like the bastard he is. Therefore, I hope that he gets his ass kicked in that country. Hell, I never want to go back that nation, which is my least favorite country on Earth.

28 They try to be righteous
29 They are homophobic

Its ust that the philippines is EXTREMELY conservative; frustratingly TOO conservative

30 They compare themselves too others too much

Leading to envy, and insecurity. probaby caused by Philippine media and entertainment, pressuring them to be successful.

31 Being overly hypocritical
