    damn I didn't know people really get pickpocketed. You'd think that you would feel it if someone went through your pocket. maybe it's just since I'm aware of my surroundings.

    If you don't know maybe it is best you don't investigate further:D

    The one that distracted the victim enough to lift his phone.

    The dust jacket of that book is way different then the contents

    I work in Pattaya for 9 months of the year and I still find it hard to tell the difference just by looking.

    I could be wrong but I think it is a lady + a boy or in other words a transsexual individual. If I am way off, then ignore this.

    You are correct.

    In Thailand a transsexual is an accepted gender, there are three official genders, 'Male, female and a woman of the second category'.

    Many schools and colleges have separate bathrooms for each of the three genders.

    It's an insulting way to refer to someone transgender.

    I would have thought the same, but as a victim of a pickpocket many years ago (i used to be paid in cash and lost the rent money that was in my wallet on pay day) by the time I realized my wallet was gone I could not remember how or when it could have happened. Many of these people make a living doing this, I would never underestimate their skill.

    I keep a tight watch on me, if I'm not on my phone I might have my hands in my pocket and I often try to avoid "the crowd" so it would be extremely obvious if someone tried to pickpocket me .

    No.

    RuPaul is a drag queen, that's entirely different.

    Gotta say I'm pretty impressed with both the knowledge and (so far) mature discussion about this on here, way to go guys.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think the term is insulting to ladyboys (in the true sense of the word). Many self-identify with the term.

    However, you would never use the term to refer to a transgender or transexual person in the States. Ladyboy ≠ trans.

    Actually, RuPaul often uses that term in his show, RuPaul's Drag Race, when referring to his drag queen contestants AND he even has a song titled LadyBoy, on his Champion album.

    Obviously, the definition of the term is very subjective.

    ----------

    I agree with what you're saying. Also, if you're a transgendered or transexual woman, there's nothing about you that identifies with being a "boy". Being a gay male, and having been around plenty of drag queens, I've often heard many of them use the term "lady-boy" when referring to themselves and their fellow drag queens. After all, they are boys by day and ladies by night. A transgendered or transexual lady, on the other hand, never considers herself a boy. She's a woman at all times.

    I stand corrected on RuPaul, and agree with you on the rest. To my mind, a ladyboy is very far from a drag queen, but I also wouldn't use that term for anyone I know, including the drag queens. It's just not in the lexicon of LGBTQ and drag artists (of all persuasions) in my circle.

    I'm aware that it has a different meaning, and different connotation elsewhere, though.

    It's amazing how much info they released on the victim and the accused. Both of their addresses and filmed their IDs and just show it to the public.

    the question is: why would anyone NOT have find my iphone on their device?

    there are no negatives that i can see, nor do i understand why it only has a couple stars on the app store when it works as advertised and its free.
