MRT segregation in action

This is the view of the first train car, solely limited to women, children, senior citizens and the disabled. Too bad I wasn’t able to pluck out the camera from my bag when I was in the “man car.” (yes, I went train car hopping.) It was terribly uncomfortable and too crowded.

    when i was at one of the so-called “man-coaches” a few ladies were terribly mataray coz they were uncomfortable being there with the guys. so i think, the separation scheme didn’t really achieve it’s ultimate purpose of eradicating the discomfort of female passengers. i would have given them the advice of transferring but they obviously prefer to ride the “man coaches” robbing the other guy passengers of their rightful space. i say, let all the women ride the “female coaches” period, so we guys won’t be treated like animals. so much for women’s lib. it’s not equal.

    wow..hehe..may makulit rin pala katulad ko..i always bring my cam sa mrt,i have a lot of shots thier but without flash.It is prohibited to take pictures,even the building in ortigas and makati,lalo na pag dala mo slrs.the global effect of 9/11.lol..but pwde naman hingi ng permit to do a legal shoot atleast calm ka na di ka sisitahin..great eto pra sa projects or photography thing.. : )

    As for the sorting thing sa mrt.way of discipline yan…so medyo ok naman..atleast sumusunod naman ang passengers.

    @JM: with SLRs, it really becomes a “big deal” lalo na when the clicking sound gets the attention of people. LOL.

    yes… there are a lot of women who still prefer the male coaches. it’s quite irritating. some even expect to get seats. rawr.

    gender equality has never been equal, especially if ur a guy!

    yeah i agree hehe. kaya nga last week i saw for myself the scheme’s backlash. before, guys would do the cavalier thing to let ladies take their seats, but now, with the scheme and all, the uninformed/stubborn female passengers who prefer to ride the “man-coaches” don’t get that treatment from guys anymore. all the seats are always literally taken by guys, except for boyfriends who let their girlfriends take the only available spaces… i’m telling you, the guys are not taking it “standing up” he-he

    Have you ever heard turkeys clucking in a cage? Hehe… well that’s the sound of the first car. My kid was covering her ears while inside (I almost did) Maingay din ako pero disturbing talaga ingay sa first car.
