Video: Thai Trans Teen Beats Up Another Trans Teen. คุณรู้ผู้โจมตี

Trigger Warning: Extreme Violence In a staged attack a young trans girl beat up another trans person in a bathroom. I am using the female pronouns despite the Bangkok's use of male pronouns because both of the people were dressed femininely. This was a planned attack, set up to be recorded. This was a crime. The antagonist knew the victim would not fight back. I don't know the laws in Thailand but the attacker needs to be arrested and held accountable. ธุรกรรมชุมชนของเรามีดีกว่านี้

New Sexual Reassignment Surgery Laws in Thailand

New laws forbidding sexual reassignment surgery prior to age 18 and requiring parental consent for those between age 18 and 20 years will go into affect November 18 according to Asia One News.

Thailand will also enforce a regulation that a person seeking SRS have undergone a year 'Real Life' experience where in a transgender individual lives in their proper gender and undergoes hormones replacement therapy.

It is unclear what affect the new regulations will have on transgender people from foreign countries when they seek SRS in Thailand.

Thailand however does not have laws allowing a person to legally change there documents to properly reflect there gender which creates incredible hardship for a person in transition. Currently a transgender person is forced to identify themselves as a "Lady Boy", which according to search records at planetransgender is the term that people use when searching for transgender articles involving people from Thailand and many South East Asian countries.

According to Yollada Suanyot, chairperson of the Transgender Women of
Thailand group, the new regulations lack guidelines as to whom would make the determination if the applicant has met the criteria. In her opinion this will create further hardships for transgender people.
