How To Spot Ladyboy
How to spot ladyboy 1. Too Tall: Generally Thai girls are not very tall, but almost all katoeys are taller than average, with heights of 180cm not being unusual. 2. Too Feminine: Look at the way she uses make up, the way she walks and moves her arms or hands, especially over-enthusiastic hair flicking... no real girl would need to act this way at every moment, like she is walking on a constant catwalk. 3. Overacts and Overreacts a lot: Way more than necessary, often loudly in a high-pitched, exaggerated voice. It gets even worse in a conflict. Certainly, don't ever pick a fight with a ladyboy - you can't be sure of the outcome! 4. Too Large Breasts: This again is not an absolute rule but too big and often provocative is a good indicator. They often cheerfully invite you to check 'how real they feel'... it's more a question of appreciating their financial investment. 5. No Bra! This is always interesting - In Thailand, no matter how small the breast and how open-minded a girl is, even in gogo bars, girls always wear a bra! If she doesn't, especially when combined with points 1 and 4, you are probably talking to a katoey. 6. The Voice: In the majority of the cases, voices - even trained voices - are still what gives many katoeys away. The pitch might be higher than men's voices but it somehow sounds unnatural. 7. Adam's Apple: This is a tricky one as Adam's Apples can be surgically removed, but if she has one, you can call her 'sir'. 8. The Dress Code: Just like the overacting, the way a ladyboy dresses is usually a lot sexier than most girls. Add a generous amount of make up, feathers and glitter and you get a girl that has become so feminine and flamboyant that things start to get suspicious. 9. The Elbows: One of the most unclear indicators, supposedly men's elbows are more square than a girl's. 10. The Final Check: The ID card - no matter how feminine you are or if you use the ladies bathroom, even after a sex reassignment surgery, your ID will still show your real gender.
