Why Coltivate Transsexuals?

Pls visit my new site "Mystic Gemstones"

There are many different stories about sexual costumes in Thailand, but this one seems to be exagerated.

The notice is from BBC (photo and article) and here is the video that unfortunatelly is unpossible to embed in the blog.

One scool invented a special toilet for transsexual puples. Boys don't accept them, girls don't accept them, but there are always about 10-20% of puples that at 12-17 years of age just declare themselves as transsexuals.

I asked the headmaster whether they were not too young to be making decisions about their gender.

He said that, in his 35 years of working in the Thai education system, he had come across many boys like this, and they never changed. Many go on as adults to have sex-change surgery, while others will live as gay men, he said.

I learned the story of transsexuals and acceptance of them in the human history about a year ago. It was said, between all, that it was normal use in poor families to educate beautiful boys as females to sell them later to rich men and to facilitate their life as adults.

Here is the first sentence from this article:
It (this school) is situated in Thailand's impoverished north-east, and most of the pupils are the children of farmers.
Maybe THIS is the reason of this strange enormous number of boys making this not less strange decision at this age?

  1. I don't like this kind of stories but sadly it is a fact. It make me sad that parents have to sell their children due to poverty.

  2. The parents maybe think they do good for their children. I read an interview with an old woman passed all the life in a madhouse in Naples. She told, her mother had not possibility to give her 2 children to eat and she declared they are mad. So the poor woman passed all the life there. She was about 70 years old in '99, I think.

  3. Sad but true. I can't seem to understand what's with the toilets though. They seem to be encouraging transsexuality, don't you think?

  4. If we remember that all the stilists are gay...

    The god made them "invalid" from one side but gave them much from other side.

    But in any case I don't like what they do with men.

  5. Coming from Thailand, many things are possible. It's a fascinating country and there is a very nice Thai movie called, Pretty Boxer about a boxer who later went for operation to become a woman. It is supposed to be a true story and the woman now is a popular model.

  6. Seems I understand why all the lizards are females: a fashinating model...
