Thai Military Government Cracks Down On Transsexuals

They will go after the transsexuals not the thousands of working thai prostitutes because they are a bunch of pigs. And the thousands of American solidiers who go through there will never be arrested either. When an idiot Chinese tourist doesnt know what “LadyBoy” means and finds out in the sack, they often go ballistic and accuse the women of theft. Thai’s almost never steal anything.  The women are helpless to defend themselves and are seen as the bottom rung, lower than even the throngs of prostitutes who run the city.

 

In Sims article he makes no effort to ascertain the truth of the thefts or if it is a targeted crackdown on trans girls or not. But all one has to do is look at who they are stuffing their jails with and its clear, this is rampant discrimination in an effort to appear to be doing something.

 

The Thai military has long abused transsexuals.

Imagine: you are a young transsexual woman standing in the middle of a group of Thai men, ordered to strip for a medical checkup at a Military conscription facility. Young men around you are stripping down to their under things, but you stand paralyzed with fear (only in 2007 was rape of transsexuals deemed an offense punishable by prison term in Thailand) and even more, with humiliation: you are being forced to strip in a public setting for a medical exam from which you will inevitably be disqualified due to your sexual identity. And until very recently, you would have left the recruitment quarters with a document stating that your transgendered identity qualified as an irreparable psychosis.

This past week, Thai Courts have ordered Thailand’s military to stop identifying transsexuals as being “permanently mentally ill”, eliminating a significant obstacle for members of Thailand’s transgendered community. As male-to-female transsexuals are still recognized as males under Thai law, and males are conscripted at age 18 into the Thai military, classifications of mental illness have previously negatively affected transsexuals when applying for jobs, as many workplaces ask that males include their transcription documents with their applications.

Thailand has never been a free place for it’s large trans p0pulation. Under Thai law, Thai transsexuals may not change their gender status after surgical procedures. Likewise, Thai law prohibits same-sex marriage, a widely supported attitude within Thai society as a whole. Thai transsexuals are therefore prevented from marrying individuals of the same sex as their “legal” gender, and transgender partners do not enjoy the same privileges as married couples, including the right to inherit property from a partner, or the right to obtain a marriage visa for a foreign partner.

 

Thailand: Pattaya Police Arrest Transsexual Prostitutes in Crackdown on Sex Tourism

The city of Pattaya in Thailand is best known for its go-go clubs, massage parlours and girlie bars. The resort is a popular sex tourism destination due to its huge neon-lit red light district. However, in the wake of July’s military coup, the city is trying to clean up its image.

Colonel Suppatee Boonkrong, acting head of Pattaya City Police, told the Bangkok Post he was aiming to totally eradicate street prostitution. “I want to completely change the image of Pattaya from being sin city to a friendly town that everyone can enjoy,” he said.

The authorities have begun carrying out nightly raids in the red light district, arresting prostitutes, pickpockets and confidence tricksters.

The manager of Sisters, a health counselling centre for transgendered people, told the Bangkok Post that police were targeting ladyboy sex workers. But Colonel Boonkrong claimed: “We are arresting anyone for whom we have evidence of trying to trade sex for money. [Transsexual women] happen to be the majority of people we arrest.”

In theory, prostitution is illegal in Thailand but in practice it is tolerated and regulated. Sex tourism contributes a vast amount of revenue to the country’s economy.

Once a sleepy fishing town, Pattaya started catering for the needs of off-duty American GIs during the Vietnam War. Package – and sex – tourists followed and the city’s beaches are now lined with hotels, restaurants, shopping malls and the seemingly endless massage parlours, cabaret venues and seedy bars.
