Military might use katoey and psychotic – Writer: Mongkol Bangprapa – Position: Reporter

The Defence Ministry may have to change the term “psychotic” in its formal description of conscripts who are transvestites following an Administrative Court case.

Only transvestites who have yet to undergo a sex-change operation should be called katoey, while those who have already undergone a sex-change operation would still be recognised by the military as psychotic, according to the Commissaire du Gouvernement in a case filed with the Administrative Court against the use of the term.
