It's not the lady boys or what in Thai they call Katoeys that are weird. It's the tourist that come here looking for them that is weird.
They are accepted here as a third gender. You will find two types of lady boys here. Those who work the sex trade, beware of these, they are only out to get your money, they will rob, drug you and rob you, gang up and attack you trying to steal your wallet, Then you have the regular lady boys, these are not interested in you, and are very nice people, you will find them most friendly and helpful. You will see many of them working in the retail shops and stores in Thailand. Respect them they are no threat to you.
