From the Philippines here. As beautiful as the landmarks of my country is, it's actually a gigantic mess.
-The Politicians. I feel like the main reasons for many of the country's problems is corruption. It's so rooted in in our government. And they keep getting elected. It's not even just the president, who i have a low opinion of, it's also the senators, the congressmen, etc. I don't like to get political, so that's all I will say.
-Colorism. This actually goes back a long time and still is a problem right now. Being white or fair-skinned is associated with beauty here. If you're a dark-skinned filipino, you would be ridiculed, bullied, called "negra/negro" and people would probably keep bringing your skin tone up in conversations. I found an article that explores Philippine colorism during the country's colonization, which you can read here if you're curious.
-The mindset on education. I feel like many filipino parents here more often than not enforce the idea that "if you never finished education up until college, you are a failure." It causes immense pressure on the child, and parents refuse to acknowledge it until the child starts showing PHYSICAL symptoms of being depressed. They ignore every other indicator the child may be depressed, and only start to care when said child gets an actual diagnosis (which happened to my sister, by the way. I can't help but still be angry at my mother for that.)
-Homophobia and Transphobia. Believe it or not, there are actually pride parades here, surprising considering many of filipinos are Catholic. It's not as widely celebrated as the US, but they still exist in some provinces. But some people's reactions were of disgust and ridiculed the idea, and there are still people reinforcing the stereotype that gay men are flamboyant, loves fashion, and sleeps with every dude he sees. Also, there's this transgender man named Jake Zyrus, who performed under the name "Charice" before transition. People still tell him to be the girly lesbian he was so that he can keep performing under his old stage name. Not only that, he's still not on speaking terms with his mother, and also I think his family.
Sorry for the long rant, but that summarizes my thoughts on my home country. (Although I'm only 15 and I don't actually live in the Philippines, so idk, maybe it renders my thoughts invalid)
