Crackdown On Criminal Ladyboys


Recommended Posts

I have been to Patong and I know that on any given night, there's more than 80 Katoeys (transvestites, cross dressers, etc) in Patong. Forget the estimate that was quoted in the Thai media.

Patong has many Katoeys and they are typically aggressive and prone to illegal activities such as theft, etc. This is a problem that the Thais should have cleaned up 20-years ago. Patong is virtually a war zone and the the victims are any foreigner that enters. There are so many scams in Patong(including the Katoeys) that I cannot begin to ennumerate. If you're a foreigner, just stay away!

1- only a small minority of ladyboys are criminal

2- I've yet to come across a criminal ladyboy

3- Patong ladyboys are not typically agressive, what have you been smoking? In fact, they are much friendlier than most shop attendants in my home town.

4- 'so many scams' LOL, it has been said before, but people should use their brain!

1. "Only a small minority of layboys are criminal."I disagree with you. I maintain (with 20-yrs experience) that a majority in Patong are criminal.

2. If you have not yet come accross a "criminal" ladyboy, you haven't been around long!

3. I don't smoke anything! I've been accosted my ladyboys on a number of occasions in Patong. They're agressive and I have caught them attempting to steal my wallet a number of times. Maybe I'm just more handsome than you but I've almost been the victim of a ladyboys more than I wish to remember. I visit Patong maybe once per year because I realize that it's full of cons.

4. I use my brain and am aware of what happens in Patong regularly. My post was attempting to warn newbies such as yourself and tourists who are relatively unaware of at least one variety of the rip-offs in Patong.

Again, it is shameful that the US-Navy advertises so openly that the main reason for them to come to Thailand is Rest & Recreation.

In normal diplomatic wording it should have been called a courtesy visit from the US-Navy to Thailand.

According to my wife and father in law, and myself, the Vietnam era is long gone, and the US should behave like any respectful state.

Advertising the R&R so blatantly is very degrading for the Thai people.

<deleted>, are you on drugs or something ?

I fully agree with <deleted>. I know the US soldiers from Germany and their "friendliness" when the are drunken. Sorry that only what I see many years in my country. 2500 GI's will come to phuket. How can tis work ?? I dont understand the Navy to allow that.

Get over it, sailors have been going on shore leave for hundreds of years and nothing has changed. There will be a lot of drunks, fights and puking and then they will all be gone and Phukett will go back to normal.

They will bring an infusion of money into the economy and ask any business man how he feels about a bit of R/R.

It's almost as you're saying (and I've heard rationized by the Thais before) that if the foreigner were not here, any crimes perpetuated against the foreigners (or accidents involving foreigners) would not have occurred so, in essence, it is the foreigner's fault for existing or being here.

Please go back into the hole that you (and your inlaws) crawled out from. Excuse me for my lack of "diplomatic wording".

Mate .. what utter 100% rubbish! Following your bizarre logic .. if I was back home in Sydney .. walked into a corner pizza shop while an armed robbery was taking place and consequently got shot .. then its my fault. If I wasn't in the shop and stayed home and ordered a home delivery the "crime" of me getting shot would not have happened.

You really should avoid going along with Thai logic and "rationalizations" ,, they're not very good at it. Try thinking for yourself sometimes.

I'm not sure if you quite understood what I stated but this logic is very bizarre and is 100% rubbish! This is "Thai" logic which is complete nonsense. We are in agreement!

Your interpretation of the idiom 'rest & recreation' is absolutely wrong. Do you think your countrymen would behave any better if if the mass media proclaims that this is a 'courtesy visit'? Come down off of your high horse. You should not be telling the US how to behave until you clean up your own government officials and countrymen's behavior.

Shame on you for even acting like you should be insulted. :)

It's not just the ladyboys that the marines need to watch out for. How about that scumbag that rents jetskis then rips off the renters?

When you go to Thailand expect the unexpected. Drink if you must, but stay away from the locals and behave in a proper manner in public.

The world would be such a better place without alcohol.

I hope this whole thing was a joke....right?

No joke. I have never drank alcohol, except communion wine.

whats wrong with "R&R" almost all tourists come to phuket for R&R there is nothing sexual to those words, it is you and I guess your family assoicating Thailands sex trade to the words "rest and relaxation"...

Moe666 is correct. Cannot see a problem here.

Thai Ladyboy: "Hello sailor"

Sailor Boy: "Hello darling"

Thai Ladyboy: "You handsom man"

Sailor Boy: "You are beautiful. I love you"

Thai Ladyboy: "You handsom man. I luv you short time."

Everybody happy. End of story.

Very sad if after spending 3 to 6 months on a ship with 300+ guys they can't tell the difference?

Crack down checking their papers to check if they are really a woman or not?

Hilarious 555

What is the crime being committed?

Lying about am I beutiful or not?

I am sure they bring thousands of dollars to the Thai economy from their ATM everyday?

Sailor says yes how much then finds out she? is better equipped than him for battle?

Som nam na is my only comment great post

May I ask what your main reason for coming here was? Visiting ancient wats and taking pics of elephants?

I would have thought having a corrupt police force that ignores illegal prostitution, corrupt government officials, blatant racism against their own dark skinned citizens, blatant disregard for copyright laws (even by govt. schools) .. etc etc .. the list goes on .. would be more degrading.

Some of the sailors may do just that. Others may prefer to carouse, etc. As long as they do not break the laws (or laws that are actually enforced) who are we to judge? Imagine yourself at 18-yrs old, in a "tin can" for months and finally allowed some shore-leave. Give them a break. Unfortunately they're just "fodder" for the Thai con men (and women) of Patong.
