THAILAND - For the military, transgender people are no longer sick

In Thailand, a country with an exceptionally large number of transsexuals, they were usually exempted from military service for "psychological abnormality" or "gender identity disorder", terms perceived as stigmatizing. Also, on the eve of a new campaign of conscription (1-April 11), the army she decided to go for qualifiers more politically correct.

Those who underwent treatment for breast augmentation are thus classified as Type 2, those who underwent surgery transsexual enter the Type 3, we read in the Bangkok Post. Nearly 100,000 recruits must be selected this year. Types 2 and 3 will not be required to participate in the draw, except in cases of under-staffing among Types 1, it says the army.
