Toilets for Thai Lady Boys

In Thailand, life is often not as simple as black and white. There are also many shades of grey. Take for example the Rest Room. In most places you will see toilets which are clearly labelled for Men and Women. But, in some places in Thailand, including at restaurants and schools, you will find a special room for the people who belong to the “Third Sex”. In Thailand they are often called “Lady Boys” and are more accepted in society than in other countries. The sign on this door says “The Purple People Toilet”.

    There are many things in Thailand which can be criticized, but this i think is a very positive point. Sets an example for other countries.

    Hmmmm…not to be too picky, but wouldn’t there then be a “Fourth Sex” as well: chicks that want to be dudes?

    When they get a WC as well, then that’ll really be something!

    Seems almost sexist that lady boys get more attention than boy ladies, no? ^__^ hehe
