Ladyboys in Thailand Sexuality Discussion

For this discussion forum, you have to draw from the film, “Middle Sexes: Redefining He and She,” book reading (chapter 12) and lecture on “sexuality.”

1. The growth of “Lady Boys” in Thailand has generated much curiosity and interest from people around the world. Who are “lady boys”? What do you think the growth of men’s interest in “lady boys” (especially interest by men from western societies) indicates?

2. How did the film Middle Sexes and readings help you understand the complexity of gender, sex, and sexuality? Make sure you provide specific examples.
