MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) is reporting that there are over 34 million single individuals in the country as of 2015. This number accounts for 44% of the total population ten years old and above.

The PSA said that of the total single population, males account for 54.1% which results in a ratio of 118 males for every 100 females.

We asked The Adobo Chronicles statistics experts to analyze the PSA Census report, and here is what they came up with:

Filipino Representation In U.S. Capitol Siege!

WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – Not since the likes of John Ensign, Bobby Scott and Steve Austria have Filipino Americans been represented in the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives. But all that changed yesterday during the siege on Capitol Hill staged by pro-Trump supporters.

Many Filipinos noted with pride their country’s representation in the insurrection, highlighted by a walis tambo (soft broom) that’s as essential a household cleaning item as the tabo (bathroom dipper/pitcher). The above photo of the protester inside the Capitol instantly went trending.

Indeed Filipinos have come of age in the Land of the Free, Home of the Brave!

New Facebook Online Tool Can Confirm Gender Identity!

SAN JOSE, California (The Adobo Chronicles, San Jose Bureau) – Move over FaceApp. Make way for Facebook’s gender identity online tool!

Netizens have been amused by FaceApp’s newest tool that can transform photos of males into photos of females. That’s now passé.

In celebration of Pride Month this June, Facebook has launched a new tool that will confirm one’s gender identity, sexual preference or sexual orientation, whatever the politically-corect term is.

Here’s how it works:

1. Log on to your Facebook account.

2. Click on “status.”

3. Type in “hashtag pride “ (#pride).

4. Click on “post.”

5. Check your post. If what you typed in appears in rainbow colors, you’re LGBT. If the characters are in black, you’re hopelessly straight!
