I am Filipino and proud of it. I was born and raised for most of my life in the beautiful island of the Philippines.
When I was younger we would vacation in the US and eventually I went to university, got a job, got married and stayed in the US.
Even though there are many Filipinos in the USA you sometimes get people thinking that all Philippine born people are living in grass huts and subservient.
One day a Philippine American man married to a Caucasian lady, went up to my husband and said, “You are so lucky to be married to a Filipina! They clean so well!”
My husband, who has been to the Philippines a number of times and knows that there are many types of Filipinos, jokingly replied, “Mine must be broken!”
Yes, I love a clean house, but I hate housework! How is that for debunking a stereotype?!
