i will say that i had a, er... strange lady boy encounter once when i was living in china.
i was on holiday in hong kong, at a bar, pretty shitfaced (if i remember correctly), when a beautiful woman sat down beside me. she smelled good. FANTASTIC even! if i could describe her scent with something tangible i'd say that it alone caused a bonafide bonerjam.
immediately we struck up conversation, and though it was quite apparent she was a 'working girl' looking for a john and i certainly wasn't interested in that, i did entertain the idea that i could get her to follow me back to the hotel on just my own charm.
i bought her a couple drinks. we talked. laughed. she kept touching me.
and i noticed a lot of the locals snickering and hiding their eyes from mine when i looked around.
then... it hit me.
i got it. don't know why or how, because like the lady boys pictured above, you really could not tell. at all.
but i knew.
i asked her: "so, are you a... uh..."
"LADY BOY!" she said.
and i ran. i fucking RAN! i was so embarrassed... but it's funny as hell now.
good grief one can hardly tell!!!
