A netizen defends a stranger who was criticized for her attire while doing grocery


A netizen defends a stranger who was criticized for her attire while doing grocery.

There is always the first impression on something or someone you encounter for the first time. Sometimes, people are very quick to judge what they see. Just like the saying "first impressions last", the initial judgment over something or someone may be or may not be true, but it will surely leave a lasting memory.

The post of a woman from months ago is resurfacing on the internet recently and is becoming viral. It was about her defense of a random stranger that was unknowingly criticized online.

A woman encountered a stranger in the grocery wearing only a tube for her top which was exposing much of her skin. The woman secretly took pictures of the stranger and captioned it with a question asking people what would they do if they come across someone in the grocery wearing such a revealing outfit. The post of the woman earned a lot of negative comments about the stranger who didn't even know that she was already being picked on in the online world. Because of this another woman, who has had enough of the other woman's cyberbullying, commented in defense of the stranger. She also posted the whole thing on her Facebook account to discourage people from judging others.

The woman told the story on her Facebook account. She wrote:
"I never, repeat, NEVER engage in public debates. Even commenting on an entertaining and harmless post from a page is not my thing.
But THIS triggered mo ako te. This is downright ignorant and puts the person in an embarrassing position. For what cost? Just because she felt that that day she looked pretty or cool or just felt good in a tube top?
Binisaya kasi baka ma-smart-shame tayo porket hindi tayo smart kasi nag-English.
Ugh, grabe. I still have so much more to say but for what. Haaay.
Ps. Ini-specify pa talaga na KCC. Jusko kilala nga ng mga taga Mindanao ang isa't-isa, yan pa kaya na taga-Gensan area lang."

The kind woman also posted a screenshot of her comment on the post of the woman. She even took the time to translate her comment which was written in their native dialect so that many people may understand better. She said through her comment:
"Ms. Ariane. Kung ako sa'yo, take down the post. Who gave you the right to judge somebody by the way she dressed? Mas mabuti pa siya kasi hindi siya nangingialam sa iba. Ikaw? Pinost mo to ng walang pag-aalinlangan at hindi man lang nag-isip na sobrang liit ng GenSan at makakarating to sa kanya at sa pamilya niya. Just to feel better about yourself you'll go out of your way to shame someone?
Kaya hindi umuunlad ang Pilipinas kasi panay kayo sa pangingialam sa iba. May maganda pa yata ugali ni ate eh. Do you seriously want to condemn our already underdeveloped country to a society where women cannot wear anything they want? Cannot express themselves? I can go to all lengths of discussing why this is an ignorant post. No different than that statement 'She's asking to be raped with those clothes' But seeing that you bask in the mileage your post has reached, any argument or call of empathy to the person in the subject will be useless.
God bless Ms. Ariane. And if you pray and go to church, then this is ironic sa pinapakita mong pagka-judgemental."

The post caught the attention of many social media users. People commended the woman for defending a person who didn't know she was already being judged. People also thought that the woman's remarks about the unknowing stranger were quite harsh. Somehow, the post encouraged people to not tolerate cyberbullying and being too judgemental towards people they don't particularly know.
