Sirilada Kotpipat admitted “I have testicles and a clitoris but I don’t have a penis or a vagina,”

At birth, the doctor had identified Sirilada as a boy although her sexual organs were ambiguous. 

“I was shocked when I saw her.  I thought she looked a lot like a girl.  But when we registered her birth at the age of six, the government determined that she was a boy.  We had to agree”, Sirilada’s mother said.

 

“Deep down in our hearts, we wanted a son as well, so we raised her as a boy by dressing her in blue and bought her boy-toys”, the mother continued.

Regardless of how her parents had treated her over the years, Sirilada knew within herself that she was a girl.  She attempted explaining to her parents about her gender but they refused to accept.

However, as Sirilada grew into a well-behaved and respectable child, her parents’ acceptance of her female characteristics also developed.    They had learned to love her and were proud of who she was, more and more each day. 

With the support of her parents, Sirilada decided to have an operation to remove her unwanted male organs.  However, the first two transgender operations were unsuccessful.

On 12 June 2010, Sirilada was selected as an eligible candidate for a transgender operation in the First Free Sex Change Project.

According to the project’s committee, she was selected because her situation was unique and more important than others.

 

On 2 December 2010 Sirilada went to Bangkok for her third transsexual operation.  

Sirilada said she was very worried as she recalled the pain that she had endured from the first two unsuccessful surgeries. 

According to the surgeon, there were two major issues associated with Sirilada’s surgery. The first was her small vagina.  The second was that the integrity of her skin had lost its elasticity caused by previous operations.

Nonetheless, Sirilada underwent her third operation as scheduled. 

The surgery has left her with a long suture mark but Sirilada remains optimistic.

“After looking at the wound, I don’t think it will improve.   The wound is full of stitches.  But I’ll try to stay positive and overlook the stitches,” Sirilada comments.

Sirilada says that whether the surgery was successful or not, she will always be a female, stating that this would be her last operation.

Two months after her surgery, Sirilada returns to her normal life as a female although the operation was not as successful as she has hoped. 

Sirilada is determined to find a job and save up money for her education.   She accepts that she will face further challenges in life.

“Some people would think that I have fraud documents because I have Mr. as my title but look like a Miss,” she said adding that she would like to be either a man or a woman in her next incarnated life. 

Although the operation did not change her physically, Sirilada is determined to change her mind mentally.    She has learned to live a happy life, accepting who she is on the inside regardless of the outside. 

Sirilada’s last wish is for other people to accept her and understand her situation without passing judgement based on her appearance.
