Pinoy Joy

I liked how Mister Avid thinks about ‘Pinoy Pride”. I think he’s right. Pride is a too strong word.

“Pride needs no external validation. You have Pride in something even if no one cares about it.

I think we should only use the word Pride for deeper convictions. Gay Pride for example. Whether a gay man lands on the moon or kills school children, Gay Pride remains. It is not tied to achievements or disgraces. It is not ever forgotten. 

From now on I will avoid using Pinoy Pride.

Pinoy Joy seems more appropriate. Joy is a smaller word that does not require strong commitment. It is fleeting and it gives us license of be trivial and silly.”
