A recently graduated lady boy has gone on Facebook to say that they have been turned down for a job at a trading company.
They posted a screenshot of an email in which the company said “sorry but we don’t accept ‘type two women'” (the term used in Thai language for ladyboys.
Reaction from friends and netizens was swift – they asked angrirl “What era is this?” condemning the email and the company.
One poster said that he should be glad they turned him down – they are clearly not a professional company.
Legislation exists in Thailand whereby those who believe they are the victim of sexual prejudice can make a case in such circumstances. SN – EP
