Vandalism: An art or an eye sore?

 Name of a gang with a stereotypical font written on  walls, a drawing of a man's genital part, words written by rallyistas and some stuffs that can be found in every public places are definitely an eye sore. 

It makes the surrounding look dirty. Though MMDA launched a project about painting the walls to prevent vandalisms I guess it is not enough to prevent them from doing this. They use paint spray, which are hard to remove. I wonder why some people would really draw a person’s genital area in a public place. If I were a boy, I would feel ashamed to see my private part in the wall where everybody else could see. Vandals can be found everywhere, especially around Metro Manila. A man aging from 12-21 are more likely to do this stuffs, especially if they belong to a gang.

Behind this wall full of vandals is a church.

I also often see vandalisms at buses’ seats, there are some foul words referring to sex and it comes with a cell phone number. Sometimes they put “wanted text mate” to earn some attention.

In our Psychology room at EB 7th floor, almost every chair has an illustration a man’s private part, comes with different sizes and different kinds. Is it fulfilling to draw a person’s private part? What is with it that it seems to be addictive?

Vandalism in the comfort room is common, especially in public comfort rooms. When I was in grade school, I often see some vulgar words meant for cursing at the girls’ washroom. In grade school, it is a common way to revenge to your enemy. It is so childish yet funny.

How I wish if those who vandalize will just draw some awesome doodles or graffiti like these,

In that case, it will not be an eye sore anymore; instead, it will become an eye candy.
