Filipino Lady Boys
I wish I could tell you that a guy from MP has never gone to the Philippines to find out his lady was a dude. Sorry, it has happened several times that I am aware of. To say their trip was a disappointment would be an understatement. One guy was so mad he took it out on me, as if I had some prior knowledge of what he found out the hard way.
It can range from something easy to almost impossible to know for sure. I am no expert at picking out Asian men playing women and never claimed to be one. The problem is that Filipinos (men and women) are often smaller than the average Westerner. A guy 62 inches tall can look a heck of a lot like a lady if he puts his mind to it. I think not having a lot of first hand exposure to Filipinos on a daily basis makes it that much more difficult to spot lady boys.
It will be your final call on whether to make the trip and hope for the best. If the worst happens and you find out your lady is a man then all you can do is walk away. Don't even think of taking out revenge. Remember, you are in a foreign country and the last think you want to do is end up in jail.
