Mushiness plus nonsense multiplied by imbecility equals retardism Dare not question me, this is my blog! Juice ko, sya na yata ang pinaka-Cathy Santillan na taong nakilala ko.
A photographer and a tech support representative, Persia plays different roles from a call center agent to a newscaster in a series of videos about bekimonsdefined as people who are "hard-core users" of gay language -- whether they are homosexuals or not. Most of the terms that bekimons commonly use are alterations of basic Filipino and English words such as workibells workkalurkey kaloka or crazyteh ate or sisteranekwaboom ano or what and heller hello. The term bekimon beki is a colloquial word for "gay" took off from the growing popularity of the jejemon subculture, which refers to those who deliberately exaggerate ordinary words by adding or subtracting letters, or by using a mixture of upper-case and lower-case letters, in written communication.
This blog post in inspired by the new blog of my very good friend, Poyt, called Beki-in-Manila. So just for the lulz and the heck of it, I decided to come up with my own gay lingo, inspired by some KPOP celebrities. Go buy yourself some sense of humor.
For communities to distinguish itself from others, they have to create a sub-culture of their own -- even their own language. Filipino Gay Speak can be more understandable than the Filipino language itself because it is based more on English I noticed. Did I get it right?
Beki lingo, gay-cabulary, bekinese, bekimon or whatever it is called is already ubiquitous in the Philippines, in fact, it is no longer an exclusive tool of communication for homosexual community only, every Juan and Nena in the Philippines are natural speakers of beki language and are well-versed with gay-cabulary. The commonness of using beki words is truly infectious and is becoming the new craze, even Filipinos abroad are also using the language whether intentionally and unconsciously. Even the online world has been intercepted by this craze, going viral in the social media in the past few weeks is a video of a son and his foreigner dad going around the metropolis speaking in beki lingo to Filipinos they encounter in the mall, barber shop or even in the public utility vehicles….
The Philippines is truly a diverse country. Aside from having thousands of islands, fifty different ways to cook adobo, we also have hundreds of languages and dialects. Filipinos are also innovative. One of the popular lingo or slang that came about during the 20th Century is known as Swardspeak or Beki.
