MANILA, Philippines — During the question and answer portion for Binibining Pilipinas' coronation night on March 18, Miss International 2005 Precious Lara Quigaman asked Binibini No. 38 Karen Juanita Gallman the question: “Do you agree that a third restroom should be built for transgenders? Why or why not?”
 
 In the pageant, Gallman answered: “I definitely agree there should be a third restroom for transgender because us women would like a privacy and also with men, and we have a separate room for the transgender. It just serves as an equality and privatization. Thank you.”
 
Gallman went on to win as Bb. Pilipinas-Intercontinental 2018.
 
On his Twitter account, controversial singer Mark Bautista gamely answered the question Quigaman asked Gallman.
 
According to Mark, there is already a third comfort room allotted for differently-abled people. 
 
"3rd restroom is for PWD right? so dapat fourth na," he wrote. 
 
 
But on a serious note, Mark wrote in another Tweet that a new restroom should not be an issue. 
 
"But seriously we just need to be accepting and open... and I think also be responsible (& respectful) in using the toilet... a special restroom is not an issue I guess," the singer wrote.

 

 
The TV and theater star became controversial after he launched a tell-all coffee table book titled "Beyond the Mark," where he revealed an intimate relationship with a male friend. 
 
In another Tweet, Mark hinted that he might be guesting in his good friend, Sarah Geronimo's 15th anniversary concert.

Sarah is to whom the actor reportedly first confided his sexual preference and orientation.
