both terms are correct although we were talking spelling not usage,BUT.......a Pilipino speaking to another Pilipino would say either im pinoy or pinay or im Pilipino in the broad term......the correct usage with a foreigner who doesn't understand usage is to say Pilipino(correct spelling in tagalog)or im philipino or pilipina etc. I have had pilipina say to me,,im a pilipina and others depending who they are say im pinay. Depends if u throw an a in the middle or not because then the tense changes as to singular or plural. some say toe mato,others say Toe motto..
