In Thailand, khatoeys (ladies-boys) are considered in different ways by the khatoeys themselves and by members of the public. The researcher Sam Winter informs that the Thai public sees them 50% as men with a female spirit, 35% as a third sex and 15% as women born in a male body. As for khatoeys, they define themselves 45% as women, 36% as «a second kind of woman» and 11% as «khatoey» (non-human).

In 2004, the Chiang Mai School of Technology reserved a separate toilet space for khatoeys, showing on the door the intertwined male and female symbols. In the rest of the school, khatoeys must wear male clothing but can wear female haircuts.
