----- Reply to Don Azarias on 04/17/09 at 12:12pm I really don't think anyone was accusing that Filipinos were dumb. As for Jonathan, I don't know him or how old he is or if he was born in the U.S. or the Philippines. However, many young Filipinos, particularly those born in the U.S., may be using FLIP because they don't know the history of the acronym. They may not even be aware that it had been used before. That is not being dumb, but not being educated. I'm certain that young Filipinos would stop using the term if they understood the history. Similarly but oppositely, if I say I'm gay, 99.999% of the young adults will think that I am a homosexual. They have no idea that gay, prior to the '80s or '90s, meant happy. For the young Filipinos who use FLIP, I believe it is the responsibility for the parents, or others who know, to explain the history of FLIP. ----- Re: Don Azarias wrote: Filipinos are not as dumb as that. The issue here is the usage of the word "FLIP" <> Ciao Frank
