Katoeys Really Taboo

August 1, 2008

Katoeys Gallery at its finest here. Here are some more katoeys pictures to help show you that the first batch is not a spoof. Todays society considers the katoeys a taboo for most people. Even more taboo is the thought of whether the katoeys should date men or women. Gender roles really get shifted around in this realm and it becomes quite confusing for all to really understand the divide. The big question is. . Should there be a divide?

Katoeys in the past used to just fill the role of ladies in the household. There was a greater need and so people as diverse as they are came up with a new ‘sex’ to bridge that gap. The world has really changed in the past 50 years though, and the lines are blurred even more. Katoeys today, use many different ways to produce sexier results. They often get boob jobs, take hormones to become more lady like, and sometimes genital reassignment surgery.

Katoeys are more visible and more accepted in Thai culture than transgender or transsexuals are in Western countries or the Indian subcontinent. Several popular Thai models, singers and movie stars are kathoeys, and Thai newspapers often print photos of the winners of female and kathoey beauty contests side by side. The phenomenon is not restricted to urban areas; there are kathoeys in most villages, and kathoey beauty contests are commonly held as part of local fairs.


Katoeys – Asian Ladyboys in Society

August 1, 2008

Katoeys are an Asian mainstay especially in Thailand. Most Westerners find the idea of them bizarre and crazy, but if you just take a little shift in culture you’ll find that katoeys play a major role in society and they are not as strange as one may think. If we reverse the gender roles, and shift the environment (such as the United States) in the time of WWII the idea of manly women who dressed and worked at the factory was commonplace. Take a good look at these katoeys pics and you’ll notice they are a very attractive set of ladyboys who are normal just like you and me.

Ladyboy is a term used to describe asian kathoeys or katoeys. It refers to male to female transgender person or feminine gay male in Thailand. Katoeys is used more in Asia although ladyboy is the term in english conversation with Thai people.

Katoeys are quite different from transwomen often used outside Asia. In Thailand and the Philippines third sexes has existed for quite some time and is respected. In fact sex with a ladyboy (or katoeys if you prefer) is not considered gay. In fact it is quite often that Thai katoeys are used for prostitutes. Hardcore sex by males takes place very often in theses countries and rightfully so. . the katoeys are often very sexy. The Thai people feel that they Katoeys are born as a ladyboy, thus very natural.
