Rodrigo Duterte orders his soldiers to shoot women in the vagina

  • Duterte who came into power after vouching to kill all of the country’s drug users and peddlers has been doing just that

The statement was made during a speech to over 200 former communist rebels in Malacañang last week.

Philippines - Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has drawn condemnation from human rights watchdogs and women's groups, after he said that female communist rebels in the country should be shot in their private parts as punishment for fighting the government.

"Tell the soldiers. 'There's a new order coming from the mayor".

"We will just shoot your [genitals], so that if there are no more [genitals], you would be useless".

President Rodrigo Duterte's suggestion that soldiers should shoot female rebels "in the vagina" should be taken "not literally but seriously", his spokesman Harry Roque said Tuesday, February 13. He said women would be "useless" without vaginas.

Since he came to power on a promise to kill all the country's drug users and dealers, thousands of Filipinos have been shot dead, prompting the worldwide criminal court to open a preliminary examination.

"They will say, 'Okay, how many people are dead?' 'Three.' 'What?' 'Three.' 'Son of a bitch, don't lose.' 'Are there any women holding guns?' 'Sir, she's a fighter".

Duterte claimed in November 2017 that he had killed someone in a stabbing by the time he was 16-years-old, but his aides have claimed that he is prone to "hyperboles".

Conde added that encouraging state forces to sexually assault women during a conflict violates "international humanitarian law".

However, this is not the first time that Duterte has been called out for saying vile things about women.

"Duterte (sic) latest nasty remark openly encourages violence against women, contributes to the impunity on such, and further confirms himself as the most risky macho-fascist in the government right now", said a representative for Gabriela, a feminist organization, in a statement.

Left-wing group Karapatan said Rodrigo Duterte "has distinguished himself as a frothing-in-the-mouth fascist who incites the worst violations of worldwide humanitarian law". "I mean, that's amusing".

In the lead-up to his presidential election win in 2016, critics were outraged when he recalled a 1989 prison riot in which an Australian missionary was killed, and inmates had lined up to rape her.

The Human Rights Watch also denounced the statement. "Come on. Just laugh", Roque said.

It is to be noted Duterte is also under investigation for crimes against humanity, associated with the country's war on drugs.
