Duterte slammed after threat to shoot female rebels in the genitals

MANILA, Philippines — Human rights groups say the Philippine president’s remarks about troops shooting female communist rebels in the genitals to render them “useless” can encourage sexual violence and war crimes.

The left-wing group Karapatan said Tuesday that President Rodrigo Duterte “has distinguished himself as a frothing-in-the-mouth fascist who incites the worst violations of international humanitarian law.”

Human Rights Watch said Duterte’s remark, uttered last week before supposedly surrendered communist rebels, is the latest of Duterte’s “series of misogynist, derogatory and demeaning statements he has made about women” that encourages state forces to commit sexual violence during armed conflict.

Duterte acknowledged that he has a “bad mouth” and that he’s not a statesman, but said “the problem here is that I won” the election.
