isang ginang sa iloilo, napilitang umalis sa kanyang tahanan dahil sa banta at pagbibintang ng kanyang mga kapitbahay na isa raw siyang aswang!
ano kaya ang nagtulak sa kanyang mga kapitbahay na tawagin siyang asang? alamin sa ulat ng ating regional reporter na si jhoecel huesca para sa brigada 8pm sa GMA News TV-11.
firstly, when people experience unexplainable phenomena, it is easy for them to ascribe the mysterious occurrences to spiritual forces or beings, like aswangs, in keeping with their cultural beliefs and superstitions.
secondly, the "ginang" in the case study above reportedly had the reputation of having illicit trysts with the men in her locale. what better way was there for the female neighbors to have her burned at the stake than by branding her as an aswang!
thirdly, "aswang" can be used as a derogatory term to mean "bitch," which her female neighbors certainly considered that lady to be!
