新民黨立法會議員葉劉淑儀日前撰文,指大量在港菲傭為外籍男人提供性服務、淪為「性資源」,引起社會各界批評。本地網民Joseph Li引述菲律賓學者Walden Bello在Facebook上的言論,Bello批評葉劉將女性受到性騷擾一事歸罪於她們的外表與行為,又指一些缺乏安全感的香港人應花錢去看精神科治療師,而非聘用外傭。

Bello在其Facebook說,當他被媒體問到如何看待葉劉淑儀有關外傭的言論時,他回答說 :「葉女士或許是一位女性,但她表達出跟男性的性別歧視主義一樣的思維,把女性受到性騷擾的原因歸咎於她們裝扮、步行或露出笑容時的『某種姿態』。菲律賓女性是富有吸引力的,這是我們的人天生的,她們並無試圖去誘惑任何人。」

他又指,男性僱主若無法控制他們的性衝動,他們一開始就不應僱用外傭。而女性僱主若對位於她們丈夫六尺以外的女人也會瘋狂地嫉妒,應控制自己的嫉妒心。

Bello再說 :「若說葉女士是公開地反映她在家庭方面的不安全感,我並不感到驚訝。在任何場合,那些情感上缺乏安全感的香港男人及女人,最好將他們的金錢花費於與精神治療醫師見面,去治好他們不自然的(思想)傾向,而非聘用外傭。」

他是現任菲律賓眾議院議員,亦是眾議院轄下的海外傭工事務委員會主席,並聽過許多有關外傭的故事,Bello說,很多家庭傭工的男僱主常常試圖與她們上床,她們的女僱主對於傭工的任何一個動作均瘋狂地嫉妒。以下為Waldon Bello的全文回應 :

Bello: What I told the media when I was asked about Hong Kong legislator Regina Ip's remark that Filipino household service workers seduce their employers: "Ms. Ip may be a woman but she expresses the same male sexist mentality that places the blame for sexual abuse on women because they dress or walk or smile 'in a certain way.' Filipino women are attractive and simpatica. That is simply what our people are. They're not trying to seduce anybody.

Male employers who cannot control their libidinous drives should not hire a domestic worker in the first place. And female employers who are insanely jealous of anyone six feet away from their husbands should also refrain from doing so. I would not be surprised if Ms. Ip is publicly reflecting her domestic insecurities. In any event, the money of emotionally insecure Hong Kong men and women would be better spent on their seeing a psychotherapist to cure them of their unnatural tendencies rather than hiring a domestic worker.

While I was chair of the Committee on Overseas Workers' Affairs at the House, I heard stories about domestic workers who found it difficult to get on with the house work because of male employers who were constantly trying to get them to bed or wives who were insanely jealous of their every move. The really hellish situation, I was told, is that of the OFW who finds herself in a household with a lecherous employer and an obsessively jealous wife."

葉劉淑儀上周五在明報撰文,指外國傳媒借Erwiana一案,「渲染」本港為一個剝削外傭的地方,卻不報道在港外籍人士與女傭「發生不正常關係」,又自言於擔任保安局局長時,曾受到外籍婦女投訴,指當局「縱容菲籍女傭勾引其外籍丈夫」。她的言論受外傭團體炮轟,菲律賓駐港領事館也表示關注葉劉的言論。
