He wrote:

"Sotto's last question during Sec Judy's hearing:

Sotto: On a lighter note, secretary. We've been looking at your personal information and found out that you have two children?

Sec Judy: Yes, two daughters.

Sotto: But you're single? *room laughs*

Sec Judy: I've never had a 'normal family', if that's how you call it, growing up. But it's a non-issue. I've been underground and been to prison. My story is different growing up.

Sotto: Ah kasi in the street language, if you have kids, tapos wala kang asawa ang tawag diyan 'na-ano lang'. *more laugther*

Sec Judy: Senator, I teach women's studies in UP. We respect all kinds of families, and that includes solo parents. Thank you.
