The ladyboys here in Asia are on a whole other level.And because many –real- Asian women are somewhat small-breasted and slender..Transvestite — This is a man who spends the majority of his time during the week looking like a man, but then spends his time on the weekend dressed up like a woman.They seem to be into all sorts of fake boobs and even fake butts and for all I know may be straight or gay or bisexual since they are sometimes married to a woman.I’m sure there is a more detailed, politically correct version of these definitions but I’ll just share with you the ballpark definitions I’ve been familiar with. The women, not so much, but I have met and known several ‘butch’ lesbians here.Gay/Lesbian — Men who look like men who prefer the same. For the most part though the lesbian women here are not ‘butch’ and in every way appear as if they are straight.As I’ve mentioned before, everybody here already knows who is ‘local’ and who is ‘new to town’.
Without even getting up from my table, in my first 30 minutes I met about 3 or 4 ladyboys, perhaps 3 gays and 4 straight women all of whom were close friends working there in the mall. To be barely getting your feet on the ground and right away have so many people start telling you their names, Now, before I get much further into this I should probably give you my working definitions to avoid any confusion. are indistinguishable from Straights in general society, but here in the Philippines gays for the most part are faily open and obvious about it.
Between them and the ladyboys, the Effeminates weird me out just a bit more to be honest.
The only good thing is that they are usually a bit more respectful and not so ‘grabby/touchy’ as some of the ladyboys.
These are men who, while they will wear make-up, carry a purse and maybe even wear women’s shoes or skinny-jeans.. They aren’t exactly trying to look masculine either.
They sort run their appearance on the border between the two.
