Shoot female rebels in the vagina - Rodrigo Duterte

Shoot female rebels in the vagina - Rodrigo Duterte

It's hard to think of anything that could top Donald Trump's "grab them by the pussy" remark, but leave it to Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte to rise to the challenge.

The President of the Philippines has reportedly told his soldiers to shoot female rebels directly in the vagina because without their genitals they are 'useless'. "We will just shoot your vagina so that...if there are no vagina, it would be useless'".

"Tell the soldiers, 'There's a new order coming from the mayor, '" Duterte, a former mayor, told an audience of approximately 200 former rebels in Malacañang.

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte says he will not stop his war against illegal drugs despite an investigation by the International Criminal Court (ICC) on extrajudicial killings related to the campaign.

"The order to shoot suspected women leaders in the vagina Is but the latest of assaults on women by Rodrigo Duterte".

In July 2017, he also made rape jokes while talking about Miss Universe.

Duterte, a former mayor who has made numerous incendiary remarks since taking office in 2016, made the comments while speaking to former rebels at a private event on February 7.

"It encourages state forces to commit sexual violence during armed conflict, which is a violation of worldwide humanitarian law", Conde wrote.

Gabriela Women's Party, a feminist group, condemned Duterte as a "macho-fascist" and said his remark "takes state terrorism against women and the people to a whole new level".

Duterte has been accused of violating global law on a number of occasions, with most cases tied to his brutal war on drugs, a bloody crackdown that has ended the lives of thousands of Filipinos.

This is not the first time Duterte has made misogynistic statements.

With crime easing and recent public surveys showing satisfaction with Duterte's administration, the president's opponents may do better if they focus on issues such as traffic jams in the capital and rising rice prices, he said. I mean that's amusing. The president previously made jokes about the rape of a kidnapped Australian missionary, Jacqueline Hamill, who was taken hostage during a visit to a jail. "Come on, just laugh", he said about Duterte joking that he is ok with being indicted in the worldwide criminal court as long as he gets to have sex with more than one woman.

However the New York-based Human Rights Watch has noted that estimates by local human rights and church groups place the death toll at up to 13,000 people.
