Comments

Awang Budiman : "I only saw two today." Bruh, that's already a lot. lol.

Delilah Jones : I lived in Thailand for 5 months. I definitely saw more ladyboys. They were accepted. I was told it was because Buddhists consider it a positive if you are experience two genders in one lifetime, but only if you go from male to female, not female to male. Notice that none of this video was about women transitioning to men...

Jason W : Plot Twist. They accidentally interview a lady boy not realizing lol

Achaemenes of Persia : This language sounds so cute. I wanna learn it.

Emil Kingsley : They say that they only see two or so a day, but the thing is that you not always know when someone is a trans, sometimes they look extremely like the opposite sex and you'll never find out just by looking. So if they catch two, most probably they've already seen 4.

Osuman AAA : Reporter: How often do you see ladyboys? Citizens: Not that often, I only saw 2 today.... To someone like me who only saw like 2 or 3 in his whole life, that does sound like an "often" thing :D

yuni sara : i really admire how thai people think

Sayuri Willis : A confusing and layered concept of woke

Once Upon A Blink : Good for Thailand it sounds like transgender people are treated very nicely over there I’m sure they have issues there always stupid people but still good for Thailand

Cat's Meow : I love how progressive Thailand seems, but this left me wondering about the experience of trans men there!

uiop2k7 : To me it's just unfair that Thailand is perceived mostly like "the land of sex tourism for foreigners with guilty pleasures" rather than the place of tolerance with hospitable people, exquisite food, unique culture and history that truly is.

Incognito Writer : 09:52 She can have sex through another way, through the ears... What a good question and great answer! LOLS So cute. Appreciate this.

Just Another Aroha! : I think it's a bit unfair that Thailand is "just known" for the "sex tourism for foreigners" ... They have so humble people, good food, wonderful nature and culture, so many legends and history~ Please keep that in your mind too~ I am so happy, that people can show who they are in Thailand! It makes me very happy to hear that~

AC GNation : Very often I only saw 2 today when I don't see even 1 in my whole life. 😂😂

Dr.h luvs art : This is not as relevant but I'd like to direct your attention to the biceps at 2:44 in the background, just a PSA

may chan : I just don't agree treating trans women as if they're somehow less than other women. But its a good video, I like how they respect lgbtq comunity, because among asian countries most are still close minded towards us :(

Super Saiyan Goku : As a woman i feel safer around a gays and ladyboys, knowing you can talk to them without any explicit language or flirting is great

Blackfriars FFC : Interesting perspectives. Thanks for the video and your continued series work.

Potatoes and Tomatoes : Wow. Thailand is much more opening and accepting than what I thought.. it changed my perception..

Merit R : As a Thai I never understand what the big fuss with Bruce Jenner coming out as trans, like they gave her awards, call her brave, etc. Some celebrities in Thailand have been openly trans for like 3 decades already, lol.

Calum Stenner : 6:30 "Yes, I have. It was dark, at a club"... famous last words

ขวัญชัย วงศ์ขจรไพบูลย์ : สิ่งหนึ่งที่อยากให้รู้ กระเทยประเทศพม่า,ลาว,เขมร,เวียตนามมุ่งมาใช้ชีวิตในเมืองไทย ซึ่งพวกเขามีอิสระในการแสดงออกกว่าอยู่บ้านเกิด จำนวนมากแฝงตัวหาเงินในแหล่งท่องเที่ยวไทย จึงทำให้มีเพศที่3 มีมากในประเทศเรา

Jordan Tyler : “Are you a woman or transgender” b o t h b i t c h

michael misantrope : I love the thai language its so feminine sounding the language but also sounds beautiful

Rei : So many westerners would be shocked by their opinions. It's almost like someone else's gender isn't any of their business or concern.

Khaffit : wow this was the first ladyboy that didn't look like trash very natural she looks very happy, just like the other guys said xD

Hai Paw : This video show that there is still hope for humanity. Do you know why this people in the video so respectful to other being? Because their god tell them to not to hate and be good to people.

Nora : Do more on Thailand ... would love to impress my Thai man with knowledge of his mother’s country.

erick douglas : And what about the male transgenders? are they equally too visible in Thailand?

Lookgate supitchaya : I'm a ladyboy In Thailand, we have equal rights and liberties. We have the education, knowledge, ability. We have a career as a woman and a man. Thai society is more open to LGBT. But there are also many Thai people who do not understand and do not like us. They have the right not to like us. But they have no right to insult or show bad behavior to us. Because we have equal rights with them.

Lala : "In academia you have to hide it." That's interesting, I heard recently that there are disproportionately a lot of out-of-closet LGBTQ people in academia (and tech) in the US. But I guess the place of academia in Asian culture is different than in Western culture.

Miracles Happen : I think this video is heavily biased because it only talks about male to female transgenders but totally forget about the female to male transgenders who are becoming more and more popular in Thailand thanks to their appearance in TV shows. Thailand has plenty of ladyboys but also tomboys (I don't like these labels but this is what they are called in Thailand). What impresses me the most about Thailand is that transgenders of both types are totally integrated in society, you can see them working in shops, restaurants or shopping malls and nobody cares: this is an example every country should follow. However, a Thai lesbian told me that when it comes to homosexuality, gay women are heavily discriminated against and many girls attempt suicide because they don't know how to face their families. Yes, an open society which favors the male born gender for some reason, still outstanding but there is a long way to go before achieving complete equality for all!

Aditya : 6:00 that was a good joke bro ..... Good one.

Julie Waninger : Their mentality is much more advanced than the US. Even older people are accepting.

Vironnikka : 3:33 “Well it’s not so much that we’re more accepting of it but rather we were never explicitly against it.” For some reason I like this mindset much better. 👍

Morimoto : I've been to Thailand recently. I thought there would be more ladyboy but maybe I was just not at the right place.

Chazy East : Look extra while his gf has purple hair XD

yer da man : They be like yeah I see 1 or 2 .. Me: the hell were you doing ...wink wink

Crypto Tharg : About 10% of all "women" in Thailand, are "katoi." That's being generous. Young men - If a Thai woman is like a caricature of a "Hawt" sexy woman, she be a "katoi."

ShewithBathsoap : Not that we have more LGBT. It’s because we accepts them so they can be themselves

Dolce Vida : My bucket list goal is to visit Thailand 🇹🇭 I loooove the food, culture and the people!!.. hope me and my love make it out there one day soon ♥️♥️ 🙏🏼

뿡뿡! ^__^ : I wonder how many SJWs are going to be triggered by this video lol. -She says ladyboys are not “real ladies” -She says and assumes that if a man hits on a Ladyboy, it must be by mistake I don’t disagree with her lol

David Hammer : One of the best vlogs I've seen. It was informative, even-handed, well-produced, and had excellent sub-titles when people spoke Thai. Keep up the good work!

王一帆 : I love travelling in Thailand .. food is amazing. Especially the street food . Fruits are beautiful.. people are friendly too .

Hoàng Kim Việt : I didn't know the word "ladyboy" until watching this video :-0

GetOutoFHere Mate! : Majority of the ladyboys come out at night hunting for wallets which has $$$...😂 Like Vampires👿

DuZy : @2:43 👀😏 gray shirt approved?

wendy liang : i have to say, they did a pretty good job with the interview. those were some good and respectable questions. kudos to asianboss 👍🏼

Sangit Assam : If someone processes me in Thailand Me :::: shhhh sshhh shhh gets your hands off me ..
