It seems that everybody knows somebody who has accidentally made out with a ladyboy, or worse.
I never thought I’d be one of them, but then again, nobody ever does. A ladyboy is a transgendered or transvestite individual in Southeast Asia.
Given that I had nothing better to do, I tagged along.
Ladyboy shows are often a way for ladyboys to save up for the final step of the surgical procedure to become a woman.
Patients must be at least 18 years old and permission from parents if under 20 years old.
One must provide evidence of diagnosis of gender dysphoria from a psychologist/psychiatrist.
I think the best course of action for me now is to do as the locals do, and regard this as a good luck charm.
If nothing else, it makes for one hilarious story.2015 Update: Transgendered individuals have a hard enough time with acceptance into the societies they were raised in without the burden of someone like me writing a post like this.
While there, I met a group of friends who wanted to check out the ladyboy cabaret.Others may wear makeup and use feminine pronouns, but dress as men, and are closer to the Western category of effeminate gay man than transgender.The term "kathoey" may be considered pejorative, especially in the form "kathoey-saloey".I’m ashamed for highlighting our differences and instead want to celebrate the beautiful (inwardly and outwardly) and strong women who have the bravery to embrace their lives as transgendered individuals.If this post offends you, it’s because I’m a silly girl without an understanding of the difficulty those who dare greatly to be different. I respect your struggle and promise that moving forward, all that I do in my writing and attitude will reflect that.
