Tricia Aquino of InterAksyon.com reports that administrators of St. Scholastica's College are threatening to file a lawsuit against the Philippine Daily Inquirer (PDI) "over a "Pugad Baboy" strip that discusses "’lesbians among the school’s student population, and perhaps among its religious leaders."

 

The report, which was based on a letter posted on St. Scholastica’s College’s official Twitter account, said that "school officials are 'seeking an audience" with cartoonist Pol Medina Jr. and the person in charge of the comics section of the paper."  "If we will not hear from PDI this week, the lawsuit will be filed. If the dialogue will be arranged, we will be inviting administrators, faculty and students who care about this issue to join us. The entire Sisters’ community will be present," the letter continued.

PDI has apologized over the incident and said it has suspended "Pugad Baboy" and Medina pending an investigation by the paper’s readers’ advocate.
