Abstract:

"The Thai term sao braphet song ("second type of women") describes males who reject the gender of masculinity for femininity. Male Bodies, Women's Souls: Personal Narratives of Thailand's Transgendered Youth uses the narrative method, stories in the words of these "second type of women," to analyze these transgendered experiences. This previously ignored perspective of the contemporary Thai sex/gender system gained through this theoretical and methodological approach offers students and general readers a rich, more readily accessible foundation of knowledge about gendered subjectivity and sex/gender systems. This unique book features in-depth, autobiographical life histories from individual Thai transgendered youth.

Life stories, told in the participants' own words, provide an engaging, at times touching, always insightful look at Thai culture's sex/gender system."--Jacket.
