Where Are the JEJEMONS?


Napulot ko online:
The Philippine Daily Inquirer describes Jejemons as a "new breed of hipster who have developed not only their own language and written text but also their new subculture and fashion."

Hindi na bago sa karamihan ang konsepto ng pagiging Jejemon. Isa siyang sikat na Pinoy pop culuture phonomenon. Dahil sa ilang negatibong connotations, unti-unting nagsiwalaan ang mga dating out and proud na Jejes. Sino ba naman ang gustong mabansagang jologs?

Look around. Kahit sa maalinsangang looban o kahit sa ilang eskinita  ng Barangay 176 na aking kinalakhan, parang may malawakang extinction. Parang dinosaur lang. 

Nakakalungkot din ang kanilang pagkawala. Nakaka-miss din ang kanilang colorful presence.

Nasaan na ba sila?

Ayon sa aking source, nag-ibang anyo at sumanib sa ibang katauhan ang kanilang puwersa. Marahil ay dahil sa mapait na social stigma. Biruin mo, even DepEd wanted to kill 'em like Pokemons. Just like that. Tsk. 

Hindi nga kaya sadyang lumayo lang sila sa limelight  pero nariyan lang sila sa tabi-tabi?

Ang hinala ko, immortal ang kanilang breed. Baka naman nag-ala hunyango at humanap lang ng bagong tambayan. Feeling ko, pakalat-kalat lang sila sa... digdig ng blogging? Hindi kaya? Sa tingin mo?

Malay natin nag-level-up lang sila kuno pero when you look closer, angat pa rin ang neon colored blood na nananalaytay sa kanila. Hmmmnn... I have suspects. 

Baka sila 'yung mga wannabe writers aka bloggers na ang hanap lang ay ang makisabay sa uso.

Baka in denial lang me! OK. Let's say I'm one of the Jejemons. Bakit naman ako mahihiya?

May kilala ka bang Jejeblogger/s? Eh, ikaw? Jeje ka ba? Tara! Let's rebuild our clan!

  1. Di ako aware na nagtago sila. Madami pa din naman akong nakikita na colorful ang mga suot. Pantalon. Damit. Sapatos. Maging kanilang phone cases. Only I'm not sure if those are enough criteria.

  3. Nag eevolve din pala sila hehe. Alam mo, kahit pilit nilang itago lumalabas talaga minsan ang pagka jejemon e, may isa kasi akong na add sa fb, former hs classmate ko pa naman. May distinctive o kakaiba talaga sa kanila, hindi lang sa salita o pagsusulat. Nakakairita, adik pa dinelete ko na ng ilang beses bumabalik at ibang account na naman! Gø$h k@Lohk@^

  16. Jejemons are primarily known for their notorious and abominable writing. Yung fashion nila ay sumunod na lamang. Ewan ko kung bakit sobra ang persecution against jejemons. Nauunawaan ko ang pag wage ng war ng mga grammar nazis against jejenese- it is an outright attack on human culture. Pero the mere fact na naging subculture na ang jejemons by developing not only their own way of communicating but also their own fashion, shows us that it is a growing community. At sa patuloy na paglaki nito, patuloy din ang pag intensify sa desire ng mga haters nito ang puksain sila. Bakit ba? They're not really a threat to Filipino culture.

    Corruption, budget cuts and the government's wrong priorities are the real threats to our culture. It's sad to admit that the jejemon sub-culture is now one of the many fabrics that make up the whole picture of the Filipino art and culture.

    Pero madali nating mapagkaisahan ang mga jejemons, because whether we like it or not, the very core of this passion against them is our desire to protect an endangered class of people who is delusional enough to think that there is no other exclusive club, and our need to establish our class above a growing community of jejemons who are mostly from the lowest caste of our communities.

    Jejenese is the language of the poor and the people we consider mentally-challenged (because they have no education at all or because they can't afford the tuition of the best schools of the town). Jejemon is the term we use for people who follow their own fashion and not ours because they simply can't afford to buy the clothes that we have in our closets. And because of this, we think of them as lower class, people of poor taste. So whatever they wear, it is of poor taste. In other words, they are jologs.

    But what's wrong with all these ka-jologans. I was from the 90's- the year when there was no real fashion and being a jolog was ok. Look at your pictures back then. Awkward di ba? Ang jologs di ba?

    The war on jejemonism is not about the battles to salvage Filipino language and culture. It's already lost to English. The war on jejemonism is actually a product of our crab mentality, the age old war between the wannabe-rich and the poor. The rich's take on this issue is, "f***k it! We don't really care".

    I don't want to be a hypocrite. Yes, I have joined this circus many years ago when I wrote something about killing the jejemons. But we learn a lot in this sh*tty life. Leave the jejemons alone.

    All I want to do now is kill all the hipsters. hehehehe!

  17. If you would like an elegant accent for your nightstand, look
    through jewelry cases and armoires. Movies like Alice in Wonderland, Snow
    White and the Seven Dwarves, Beauty and the Beast are only a few names in the famous history of Disney's movie making.

    All he had in mind was that he would be earning by training people on how to use a computer and software.
