La Salle Professor Antonio P Contreras cried foul after uploading a photo of a Marcos protester holding a placard with the words “Ukinam Marcos” written on it.
The netizen uploaded the photo on his personal Facebook page.
The caption on the photo states:
“I am sharing this picture to shame this person. And do not give me the crap that I am bullying her. I am not calling her names. I am not demeaning her appearance or anatomy. She had the audacity to go to a public rally, carry this despicable placard that bears her politics of personal attacks, and had her picture taken with it, even proudly. She has become public property in this act.
Shame on her.”
Contreras further explains that he’s tolerant of the use of swear words, but draws the line when concerning political rally.
“I am tolerant of "p*t*ng in*" but not in a placard in a political rally. And it is not even "p*t*ng in* m*" but "p*ki ng in* m*" in Ilokano. That is where I draw the line.”
Other netizens have offered their opinions on this photo.
Some comments question the girl’s education and upbringing.
Debbie Lyn Agbayani Blanck comments:
OMG! So sad to see a young girl acting like this! I am an ilocano and saying a bad word like that only shows that you are a bad person and that you were raised by a bad parents. Kung baga wala siyang [modo!] Walang takot sa Diyos! At saka patay na yong pinagsasabihan nya! Anong klaseng pag iisip meron siya? Lord please forgive these people!
Lynn B. Bautista comments:
Walang breeding ang mga estudyanteng ito..they belong to a religious university. If this is the product of your educational system..what a shame..
Other comments suggest that perhaps this what happens when our President openly swears.

Trs Gutierrez comments:
Na-Duterte na. I can only attribute this kind of behavior to the brand of leadership that the president is showing. Wala sana tayong nakikita na ganitong placards kung disente ang bibig ng ating mahal na pangulo.
Lita Rule comments:
Just an observation: when a president curses publicly, there will always be people thinking that now it's also ok for them to curse publicly -- they "follow the leader". Just look at what's happening in the U.S. after Trump was elected president.
Jose Mari Almoradie Capena’s comment is directly concerned with Contreras. The netizen claims that what the professor is trying achieve is simply bullying.
“Dear. Dr. Contreras,
I do not wish to argue with you on matters of politics, since you /are/ a Full Professor 10 in the Political Sciences Department of our university, and undoubtedly know more about those matters compared to me, but with regards to these topics, like mental health and cyberbullying, I would have to speak up.
Even though you say it is not bullying, I am sorry to say, this /is/ bullying.
I am not saying that what the student did was right. What you could've done was to constructively comment on the student actions, but instead you literally said "Shame on her". That constitutes bullying.“
What do you think? Once your image goes online, is one automatically subject to public shaming? Or is criticism an unalterable fact of life? Share your thoughts with us!
