Gretchen Diez, a transwoman who became popular after being barred by a female janitor named Chayra Ganal from using the women’s’ restroom inside the mall. Ganal became enraged after Diez recorded their altercation on video, then proceeded to drag her to another floor of the mall, where the latter was detained.

Even after many days have passed, Diez is still gaining attention and criticisms.

She recently said in an interview with a local news outlet that she is “willing to maximize all of the power” she has to advocate for the LGBTQ+ community even if takes “running for office.”

This led many netizens to doubt her motives while some called her “opportunistic” and a “fame whore”.

Now, a striking open letter is making rounds online written by a certain Pidz Cabrera, a netizen. In his open letter, he stated his disappointment towards Gretchen Diez.


Check out his full open letter below:

DEAL WITH IT..

Pinili mong maging iba, taliwas sa kondisyon kung paano ka pinanganak... Walang pumilit sayo, hindi ka pinuwersang mamuhay ng ganyan... Ikaw ang nagdesisyon na gawin yan, ikaw ang pumili. Ikaw.

Ngayon, bakit kailangan ibang tao ang mag adjust at mag adapt?. Bakit kailangan magsuffer ng iba at maapektuhan ang pamumuhay ng marami para sa mabuhay ka ng komportable?

Hindi equality at acceptance gusto mo.. Special Treatment at the expense of others.

Masyado kang concious sa mga rights mo, kumusta naman rights and privacy ng iba?

Maraming tao pinanganak with special needs. Di nila pinili yun. Wala silang magagawa. They are born with disabilities. Walang taong gusto ipanganak ng bulag, lumpo o may kapansanan. I guess they are ones who need special treatment.

Hindi ikaw na pinanganak naman ng normal at maayos pero piniling mamuhay ng iba sa normal at sa estado ng iyong kapanganakan. Yours is not a disability but a lifestyle choice. Wala kang kapansanan. Hindi mo kailangan ng Special Treatment..

Expressing your self is ok. Being different is ok. Being true to your feelings is ok. Demanding for equality and rights is ok. But remember, YOUR RIGHTS AND PRIVILEDGES ARE LIMITED BY THE WAY THEY OBSTRUCT WITH THE RIGHTS OF OTHERS.

DEAL WITH IT. YOU DECIDED TO LIVE THAT WAY. DEAL WITH IT..
