Teves rides again, seeks to declare ghosting as emotional abuse

BACOLOD CITY, Negros Occidental, Philippines – Controversial Oriental Negros solon Arnulfo Teves Jr. has filed another bill that has raised some eyebrows so far shortly after he filed a bill to rename the Ninoy Aquino International Airport to that of the slain senator’s political nemesis.

Teves defined in his explanatory note to House Bill No. 611 that ghosting is a form of emotional abuse that happens when the victim is in a dating relationship with the opposite sex who suddenly cuts off communication.

He noted that ghosting affects a person’s mental health as it is “mentally, physically and emotionally exhausting.”

House Bill No. 611 states that “ghosting is a form of spite that develops feelings of rejection and neglect. Ghosting has adverse effects on the mental state of the one being ghosted and his or her emotional state is still adversely affected as he or she will be constantly thinking of the welfare or the unexplained reasons of the one who ghosted.”

The lawmaker also filed the bill which sought to rename Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) into Ferdinand E. Marcos International Airport which he claimed to have been built during Marcos’ administration.

The airport was built during late President Manuel Roxas’ term in 1947 and was originally named as Manila International Airport (MIA).
