Cool Thing I Learned At Work Today

According to Thailand tradition the first man and first woman, had three children:

1. A boy

2. A girl

3. The "third sex."

The third sex was thought to be part male and part female. This is why there are more than 180,000 "Registered Ladyboys" in Thailand.

They are drag queens, but drag queens with government recognition and high social status.

Who knew?
