How Not To Make Mistakes Between Ladyboy & Shemale & Trans & Transvestite?

The question of sexual orientation is always the subject of much debate, even to the point where we sometimes get lost in the midst of the various terms that refer to it. It would therefore be essential to distinguish between things so as not to confuse “sexual orientation” and “gender identity”. This guide shows you the difference between Ladyboy, Shemale, Transsexual and Transvestite.

What is a Ladyboy?

Ladyboy, Shemale, transexual, Transvestite, are words that are often confusing. Therefore, it is important to understand the difference between these terms. The first, Ladyboy, comes from the Thai term “‘kathoey or katoey”, referring to a transgender woman and an effeminate gay man.

The vast majority of ladyboys are found in Asia and especially Thailand, as it makes people more lenient and more open. Depending on her attraction, a ladyboy can be gay, straight, bisexual, etc. Generally, a ladyboy is recognized by her highlighted Adam’s apple, her large limbs (hands, feet, etc.), her deep voice and her large size.

What is a transvestite?

A transvestite is someone who likes to dress like the opposite sex (female), but doesn’t necessarily identify with a woman psychologically. The choice to dress like a woman can indeed be justified for various other reasons. A transvestite can therefore be gay or straight, liking to crossdress for pleasure.

What is a Shemale?

Coming from the English word “she” and “male”, the term shemale designates a transgender woman who has undergone feminizing hormonal treatment. Because of this, a shemale exhibits male genitals and female secondary sex characteristics. There is therefore development of the breasts, moderation of muscle mass and distribution of fat.

In addition, a shemale cannot be considered as being of the masculine gender because she has not (or not yet) undergone a surgical operation to transform her reproductive system. The term shemale has a common usage that results in it being viewed by many people as negative and disrespectful.

What is a Transsexual?

Simply put, a transsexual is someone who feels like they are not of their birth sex, but rather the opposite sex. In order to find what he believes to be his true nature, he adapts his behavior, his clothing to the opposite sex, even to the point of sometimes resorting to medical and surgical assistance.

In addition, a distinction is made between: pre-op transsexuals (who have not yet undergone the sex reassignment operation), post-op transsexuals (who have already undergone the said operation) and non-op transsexuals (who have not had the operation and didn’t think about it).
