    Hopefully the land of smiles will also get marriage equalities too, which were in discussion before the current so-called coup.

    This news is encouraging. I hear they can be very sexually expressive in Thailand so I'm not surprised about recognition of third gender. I wonder, generally, and I’ve expressed every so often, whether attraction to third gender won't one day be recognized by psychology as a legitimate orientation and not just a fetish. I've known a few guys who are attracted to transpeople and I wouldn't know how to describe their attraction any differently than my own or those of heteros or those of bisexuals.

    I hear also that Thai naturalists are consider similar measures of acceptance in describing elephants with a penchant to sex up Toyotas.
