Default Ladyboys vs Shemales

Maybe I'm the only one who thinks this way, but when you say "shemale" I automatically think of a transsexual, regardless of race. When you say "ladyboy" I think of Asian transsexuals. Maybe that's the wrong way to approach it; I don't know. All I know is that my interest in shemales is gravitating more toward Asian ladyboys.

If I have the terminology wrong, can someone please correct me?

howse 'bout femboys? Getting more popular! 'course there is always the (perceived?) distinction between TV and Trans :me-well I reckon TV's are (mosly) passive-trannies ( hopefully) active...
But aren't they both generally feminine ?

I find myself becoming interested in femboys, too. I guess that's another area I drew my own conclusions to. To me, a femboy is young (maybe 18-24?) and wears lipstick and/or makeup and has a decidedly feminine aura, although still obviously male. I guess that could be a transvestite, although the TV's I've met have generally been trying to look passable. Most femboys seem to have a "This is me" appearance that intrigues me.

i am not sure 100% sure on the exact terminology but i also think of ladyboys generally as asain transexuals. I think this because they usually have the body type of a petite girl which some people would consider boyish, as in small tities and ass and generally shorter in height.

Hmmm... neither "shemale" nor "ladyboy" are copyrighted for a special meaning, I think... :-) It's true, though, that many would mean an Asian transgendered girl when using the term "ladyboy". To me it would also cover other races, though. It's more of an age-thing than race to me. I mean, I wouldn't address my good Danish, elderly (70) transsexual friend: "Wassup, u sexy ladyboy..." That would be bad style... and she would most likely think I had gone crazy :-)

A femboy is to me more a very sissy gay bordering on being a ladyboy. Normal as a first step in transsition.

"Shemale" is probably originally a "porn-term" referring to a transgendered woman with breasts (as well as penis, obviously).

And now we're at it...

There are some fairly good articles on this in wikipedia.org. I guess you can say that the concensus is that the term "transgender" is the generic term covering every body who is more or less "bending their gender" - a neutral umbrella-term.

A "transsexual" person, though, is some one who directly identifies as being of the opposite sex than what he or she was born as. As opposed to a "transvestite" or "crossdresser" who likes to dress and be the part but does not identify as the opposite sex.

And then there's every thing in between... :-) It's a very personal thing, apparently, how transgender-people see themselves. So needless to say, these terms are only a hint.

One important thing, though, is to stress that gender identification and sexual orientation are two very different things, and even though the absolute majority of Asian transgendered women are sexually attracted to men, then you'll in the West find that many more transvestites and transsexuals are sexually attracted to women. Hence the term "trans-lesbian..." (which also would include transgendered women sexually attracted to other transgendered women) :-)

SO here's the 1000 dollar question: What is a "straight" transsexual woman? :-)

Peace!

My good friend Lisa (below) who is the star of Zodiac Carabet in Lamai, Koh Samui considers herself Transexual. Sure, she's Asian and therefore in general terms a ladyboy but if that's how she sees herself then that's good enough for me !
