BAD WORDS are NOT allowed in the CITY: "Is it GOOD or BAD?"
November 8, 2018 5:04pm CST
The City Mayor of Baguio had signed the ‘Anti-Profanity Ordinance’ 2 months ago. It means that the local people are not allowed to utter bad words within the city's establishments where students usually hang out during their free time or simply visiting these places. Thus, it is not allowed dirty, bad or foul words in the city. ‘Do you think that it is an achievable ordinance for the city?’ ‘Do you also practice this kind of rule in your place?’ “What do you think about it?’ Image Credit: pixabay.com

How would they keep up with what people are saying unless they are yelling it, it would be a nice plan if they can make it work. Each establishment should get a swear jar and make them pay every time they swear, thats what we do lol

I think it is a stupid and ridiculous ordinance. That being said, when I am in public I try to be mindful of other people and just be a responsible adult. But not everyone can be like that I suppose. I'm thinking to myself, it seems like the Philippines has way more other social and economic issues that would seem more important to deal with than this. THIS is how they spend their time?
It was just implemented. The feedback will follow soon. This is not a theory and it was being implemented.
Profane words are no longer allowed in places frequented by children, high school students, and college students in Baguio City after the city council passed the Anti-Profanity Ordinance. Current top breaking Philippine headlines regarding the nation, worl
I do think it is a good ordinance. Personally, it is best to give awareness of having a good habit of not saying bad words in the presence of kiddies. I hope it was not being created because of what is happening in the political arena here.

For me it is more like a statement than a law since it would be hard to implement and enforce it since it would just be hard to pursue those that would say bad words. Your city would sure be flooded with violators because I know there are persons who uses this words regularly like it is a part of him already. As many are saying that would be awkward when the president would visit and does it.
You have a point about this concern. The ordinance is limited its coverage in residential or private areas. Thus, it would not be as effective as what the local official think. I think most people think that how the President reflects his real persona in the public. It cannot be denied in different ways.
I heard it recently on Facebook about the ordinance, I don't think everyone will follow the rules because this generation is different and believe it or not you can't control people's minds. Much better if the government will prioritize and improve the market prices and other social and livelihood services.
I am not also sure if it effective or not. I find it so weird for the local officials to have such a rule. I do think that they should focus more on the real dilemmas experiencing in our country right now. The sad part, the higher-ups are so busy bickering to each other.
