Homosexuality in Pattaya[edit]

I read the following post on the Pattaya talk page. "Another attempt has been made to include prurient references to this article. Unlike Amsterdam, every form of prostitution in Thailand is illegal, and punishable by law. The function of an encyclopodia is to provide intellectual and lawful information, not to serve as a scandal sheet where people can learn where to find prostitutes, homosexuals and other illegal activities. People can find every type of perversion listed on Google--it is not proper to list it on Wikipeia. If one feels it necessary to inform others of such activities, then please start another article about prostitution, homosexuality, pickpockets, murder, rape, corruption, and sexual perversion in Thailand, where you can list places and venues where they can be found. But please do not continue to besmirch the Pattaya article. " I didn't know that homosexuality was an illegal activity. 125.27.9.208 (talk) 02:54, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Homosexuality is NOT illegal in ANY part of Thailand. However, public displays of sexuality, of ANY kind, are illegal. But these statues draw no distinction between homo, hetero or any other sexual behaviour--it is the act of public indecency that is deemed a transgression. Thailand is a predominantly Buddhist country--a religion predicated upon tolerance. Hence why the country is synonymous for transsexuals or "ladyboys". That is, transgender people are accepted by the greater society. That's not to say discrimination does not exist, for it does. But most of it is of the 'passive' variety (e.g., preference given to non TG people in employment, intra-family discord). But to say homosexuality is "illegal" in Thailand, much less Pattaya, is erroneous in the extreme. It's not Saudi Arabia! Sablicious (talk) 16:21, 22 April 2012 (UTC)

An outdated sentence[edit]

"This topic will be addressed in a seminar on June 28 at Thammasat University"
Did this event occur? And would that seminar notable? IMHO, it makes no sense for an encyclopedic article.--Adûnâi (talk) 23:03, 12 April 2017 (UTC)
