rich white sexpats

A few weeks ago, D finally got paid by the NGO she works for. They owed her at least three months’ salary, but they only paid two. The next day, they asked for about a quarter of that back because they were running short of funds. It’s extraordinarily frustrating – the NGO (which promotes and advocates family planning and reproductive health in the Philippines) has excellent goals and does some very good work, but the management at times seems very poor.

In her interview, they asked D about her lovelife (Philippine standards of confidentiality are a bit different to Oz’s). When her first pay was due and she was told she wouldn’t be paid, management said to her that she’d “be able to borrow money from her boyfriend.” It’s true that as a (white) foreigner here, I’m perceived as rich. It’s also true that, relative to most Filipinos, I am. But, coming from a staunchly middle-class family in Oz, I have never felt rich in the way that many Filipinos think I am. Having said that, I acknowledge that simply being from a developed-country’s middle class makes me “rich” compared to the vast majority of the world’s population.

People often assume I’m rich. Far worse than that, people often assume, when they see me with D, that I must be paying for her. When you see a 50+-year-old, fat, ugly Australian/American/European, it is possibly reasonable to guess that they aren’t an example of beautiful romantic serendipity. However, as a non-obese 33-yeat-old, I’d like to think that people wouldn’t tar me with the sexpat brush. No such luck. There are three main types of assumption:

  1. Filipinos. A few times, Filipino men have called out some crude remark in Tagalog, which D will, after my insistence, reluctantly translate for me. (This when we merely walk past next to each other – not even holding hands.)
  2. Expats who look down their noses at us. They wouldn’t be so crass…
  3. Sexpats themselves. This is by far the worst type of assumption – the fat, ugly Australian/American/European whose eyes light up and throw me a look that says something like: “Phworr! Nudge nudge wink wink, good on ya mate!” (That’s the Oz translation, anyway. I don’t know the German for “Phworr!”)

It bothers me less now than it used to. D said that one of the highlights of her trip to Oz was being able to walk around (in the cities at least) and have people completely uninterested in us as a “mixed-race” couple (quote marks because it seems so absurd that you’d ever have to bother describing a couple as “mixed-race”). The truth of how D and I met is quite banal – she was a friend of some Oz friends of mine living over here when I arrived. In Oz last xmas/new year, though, we decided that if anyone asked how we met, we’d say that I chose D from a catalogue. I don’t think anyone believed us…

Those Sexpats in the Philippines are the worse take for example these Americans who rent the House of Rufus Rodriguez in CDO , Cagayan de Oro, Phillipines.

The American national currently residing in the house is one Gordon Elletson who goes by Gordy and posts on many internet forums using the name TexKano. Gordon Elletson is of a deffective mental state and is a admitted child abuser and basher of the Filipino populace. Please see link below of how Gordy Elletson , using his TexKano nic, admitted to hitting Xavier Madlangbayan with a cane and then proceeding to call the boys grandfather, Dr. Severino Madlangbayan,(who is seeking a city council seat in Iligan City) a banana eating monkey. Is this kind of elitest American truly the sort of expatriot that a elected Congressman wants to be connected to? Well Gordon Elletson seems to think the Rodriguez loves him and will washover any mess he gets himself into.

The second expatriot, now deceased, is one Randall Chester Goings who goes by Bubba and posted on net under nic Bubbabobbaker. This fellow had a lengthy criminal record which included multiple drug charges. Randall Goings was brought to the Philippines by Gordon Elletson where he lived , together with Gordy, in the proprty owned by Rufus Rodriguez of CDO, Cagayan de Oro. This property is located on 69 bong bongon street CDO and even before Randall Goings moved to such property he was allready posting perverted things all over the internet. One example of his perversions took place on a internet dating site where he searched for a 4' tall bi-sexual and stated in his ad "the smaller you are the more I will love you". Evan smaller than 4'? Yikes, Was he looking for a dwarf or a underaged girl?

Anyway, I hope this message reaches Rodriguez and he can see below link for proofs regarding the accutations of the kind of sexpatriots he is harboring in his rental property.

I have something sinister to present which involves a British pimp named Michael Mountstephen who openly admits that he has political protection from various politicians in CDO Philippines.

This is an election period and while I am not affiliated with any candidate my hope is to enlighten the voting populace as to these disgusting issues taking place in Cagayan de Oro City. I find it disturbing that these sickening things occur in CDO and hope truly that the politicians of that locality will address these issues as they without doubt are important to the constituents of this city.

Please see link below for a pimps confession regarding buying protection from politicians in Cagayan de Oro Philippines so that he may engage in human trafficking and white slavery with absolute impunity to Philippine law.

Now Mrs. Daisy Cline of Cagayan de Oro Philippines has stated on another forum that she holds charity events in brothels because that's where her husband, Alan Cline, can be found. I want to address her statements.

Daisy Cline in the photos your husband, Alan Cline, looks very old so I can only guess that you are not his first wife. I also do not know what he has told you about American life but rest assured most men in America , except the type you see on Jerry Springer show, do not bring their wives to brothels like the one seen in link below.

I will give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you did decide to hold charity functions in a brothel because it is the only place you could do it and have your husband included. However, I must ask if you do not condone pimping then why is your name connected all over the Internet to pimps, criminals and brothels?

I mean you are a moderator of site in link below

Which is linked to sites below

And owned by the person in links below

Mrs Daisy Cline, Do you expect as to believe these are mere coincidences? Did your father take your mother to brothels? Did your lolo take your lola? I ask as I am interested in why a lady of God and Charity is so connected to seedy persons. Do you not see the harm in supporting the very pimps who are profiting through exploiting the people you state you wish to help? Or are you there trying to bring the prostitutes to Christ?

A special page has been made on the SEXPAT BLOG as a tribute to Bradley Hughes who resides in Cagayan De Oro Philippines.

Bradley Hughes has gone far and beyond the call of duty in exposing Gordon Elletson, Michael Mountstephen ( Spooks whorehouse owner )and etc.

Bradley Hughes even came up with the brilliant idea of linking Congressman Rufus Rodriguez , of 2cd District CDO , to the SEXPATS that his home is harboring.

Bradley Hughes has been a extreme help to the advocacy and for his cooperation and good deeds the Sexpat blog owner has decided to dedicate a entire page to the bravery which defines Bradley Hughes .

Below is a email that Gordon Elletson , of Cagayan de Oro Philippines, sent Mike. This email is very interesting as in it Gordon Elletson admitts to bathing with a small child. This is obviously disturbing seeing how Gordon Elletson has no children in the Philippines though he does have a few in America that he was a deadbeat father to.

Gordon Elletson will most likely state that that his wife watches hi bath with small children but then that will bring his wifes morals into question as what kind of self respected Filipina would allow her elderly white husband to bath with small children? Can we say enabler?

Been there, done that.
That shift changing is fuckin’ up your sleep habits.
Fucked up sleep habits lead to depression.

Depression, (if you had it before the sleep pattern was messed up) is nothing to screw with.
Damn near killed me.

Take walks
Eat and drink right.
Try some chocolate once a week or so (sometimes that helps)

We know you’re there. Stay in the back if you prefer. It’s okay.

Yep, a group that on normal situations, would never happen. hahahahahaha

As if the situation with Gordon Elletson and Rufus Rodriguez wasn't enough we now have a Cagayan de Oro based Hubo-Hubo bar owner (a pimp) by the name of Michael Mountstephen stating in no uncertain terms that he has political protection in Cagayan de Oro.

I wonder what the price of impunity is in CDO? Who knows but this Hubo-Hubo bar owner states its cheaper than in Cebu and goes on to state the Mayor and a News Paper editor are amongst his protectors.

Please see below link for direct quotes regarding the statements this expatriate is making.

Hello Readers,

I have been reading on the Internet about this perverted foreign national Gordon Elletson and find it greatly disturbing. One very disturbing post was on Topix as it had the victims , Xavier Madlangbayan, own mother Margie Madlangbayan stating in no uncertain terms that this predator has caused her son a great amount of psychological distress as the victim now worries that the foreign predator , Gordon Elletson, will hit him again. I honestly hope that the victims grandfather Dr. Severino Madlangbayan will take time out of his political campaigning to bring his grandsons abuser to justice. I think he is doing a admiral thing in seeking a city council seat in Iligan City but I hope he also has not given up on bringing his grandsons abuser to justice.

Below is a cut and pasted posting written by the victims mother, Margie Madlangbayan of Iligan City Philippines:


“PNP here in Iligan failed to deliver the subpoenas to our door for the three consecutive times they were supposed to.
this is what the Prosecutor’s office is using to re-open the case.there is no “due process of law.”
both my parents and i were present in the hearing last nov.20.and so was xavier.gordon was absent.his lawyer was there vying and fighting,as he is paid to do,but assistant prosecutor Sandra fought with her tooth and nail.we are still waiting for the resolution to arrive.i sent a text to Fiscal Macauyag,there is no resolution yet.
the judge looked at my kid and probably saw his own grand child,just a bigger version for doy is a big boy,he was even mistaken by gordon as being 12years old,but when the incident happened,he was just 7years old,and that was last year.
he kept asking
“mommy,is Gordon going to be there?what if he hits me again?”
i told him:
“Xavier,he will pay for what he did.He will never put his hands on you again,over my dead body.”
i know i haven’t posted much updated,thus the question why i have been so quiet… but trust me people,i haven’t forgotten what that man did to my son.i’m just being silent.watching.waiting.if the case doesn’t get reopened,do not assume it is over.all this is far from has just begun”

Hello Guys,

This is a interesting topic and I actually ran across a blog , link below, where they are exposing a CDO based foreign bugaw, named Michael Mountstephen, who claims to have political protection in CDO to carry out his vile acts of exploitation. The interesting thing is the blog uses Michael Mountstephens own words to paint a picture of the situation. I highly advise all to view it as its quite enlightening as it also involves a CDO based charity ran by one Daisy Cline

Alang Sa Kasayuran Sa Tanan,

Niabot sa akong panimoot nga kadaghanan sa mga dumodoong sa Cagayan de Oro, nagakinabuhi nga murag sila dili mga dayo. Ingon sa mga dumodoong, ang mga opesyal daw ang naggahin kanila ug tungod para magpuyo nga hapsay sa Cagayan de Oro. Akong ginalauman nga ang mga pulong nga gibuhian sa mga dayo, dili tinood, kay kung mao man, masuko gayud ako sa mga nidaog nga opisyal sa pag-atiman nila niining mga dumodoong. Tinood kaha ang ilang gipanayon? Kung dili man kini tinood, akong ginahangyo sa mga opisyal sa lugar nga pangitaon ug pahawaon kining mga tawhanan sa dakbayan sa Cagayan de Oro. Kung walay kalihokan nga mahitabo sukwahi sa mga dumodoong, kini nagpamatood lang nga ginapaburan sa mga taong naa sa posisyon ang ilang mga kalihukan.

Ang unang dumodoong nga gikan sa Amerika ginganlan ug Gordon B. Elletson. Si Gordon Elletson nag-angkon nga siya nagapang-abuso ug mga dalaga ug nag-angkon nga siya naay sakit sa paghunahuna. Dilikado kaayo kini nga tao sa mga nagapuyo sa Cagayan de Oro. Niaging tuig, si Gordon Elletson ang niatake sa isa ka batang lalaki nga ginganlan ug Xavier Madlangbayan sa outreach program sa US Embassy didto sa Pryce Plaza Hotel, cagayan de Oro. Tungod niini, gikasuhan si Gordo sa pag-abusar, apan kini wala makapungong sa iyang pag-gawas ug pag-uli, apil pa ang pagpakalat mahitungod sa iyang trabaho kadungan sa pagtawag sa lolo sa bata nga si Dr. Severino Madlangbayan ug unggoy nga gakaon ug saging. Gidimanda sa pamilya ni Madkangbayan ang dayo apan wala sila makapakita ug ebidensiya. Sa akong nahibaloan, nagapangita ang doktor ug paagi para maabrihan pag usab ang kaso. Wala pa nakuntinto si Gordon elletson, iyang gipakalat ang mga hulagway sa mga batang babae nga nakasuot lamang ug bra, uban pa ang mahitungod sa iyang pagkaligo kauban ang mga batang babae ug ginabayaran kini niya matag adlaw. Makalagot kaayo kini nga balita labi pa kay sa ginaingon ni Gordon nga gina-proteksiyonan siya ni Congressman Rufus Rodriguez gikan sa ikaduhang distrito sa Cagayan de Oro.

Ang ikaduha nga dumodoong gikan sa Bretanya nga ginganlan ug Michael Mountstephen. Iyang gihugawan ang maayong pangalan sa Cagayan de Oro. Ang dumodoong nanag-iya ug isa ka kasa nga ang pangita mao ang pagpamaligya sa mga batang babae sa Cagayan de Oro. Ang dautang dumodoong nabuhi sa iyang pag-abusar sa mga babae ug kini iyang giangkon sa mga pag-tipon tipon sa internet. Gawas sa pag-gamit sa mga batang babae para maka kuwarta, gigamit pud niya ang Department of Tourism sa Pilipinas para mabaligya ang ilang mga serbisyo sa Gisulatan namo ang direktor sa DOT 10 pimaagi sa e-mail nga nagkanayon mahitungod sa mao nga kasa nga dili rehistrado sa DOT 10 ug bisan kanus-a dili mahitabo nga marehistro kini. Apan, padayon gihapon sa pagpakalat si Michael Mountdtephen mahitungod sa iyang binuhatan. Ang nakadugang gubot pa niini ang pangsulti ni Michael nga ang mayor sa ciudad ug uban pang naa sa posisyon ang magkauban nga naga suporta kaniya sa Cagayan de Oro City.

Tinood kaha ang ginakanayon niiining mga dumodoong? Ang gahum ba nga gihatag sa katawhan para mahimutang sa maayo nga posisyon ang ubang pulitiko gigamit lang niya para suportahan ang pagpang-abuso sa mga batan-on, pagsuportan sa mga dautang tao gikan sa gawas sa nasud? Akong ginalaoman nga kini dili tinood ug mao man kini mahimong hamon sa mga naa sa lingkuranan nga mahatagan ug pagtagad. Pinaagi niini, maipakita sa katawhan nga ang mga sama anang butanga dili kinahanglan mahitabo sa ciudad. Kini isa lang ka panawagan ug hinaot nga mahatagan kini ug pagtagad sa labing madali nga panahon para atong makita ang hustisya.

Para sa dugang pang mga detalye mahitungod niining mga dumodoong, mahimo ninyong makita ang mga ebidensiya nga natigom sa Dinhi inyong masaksihan ang kadautan nga among gipangbutyag ug hinaot nga kini mahatagan ug pagtagad.
