Bataan Day

The Philippines commemorated the 71st anniversary of the Fall of Bataan  April 9, Tuesday. The   
day is a regular national holiday. According to an author , the term “isinuko ang Bataan,” apparently rooted from the events of 1942, has gained sexual connotation in recent years. How an event commemorating the surrender of Filipino World War II combatants came to mean giving up    one’s virginity is kinda perplexing.
