In Guangxi, Nanning police recently arrested 14 “girls” who were patrolling the streets looking for customers, and discovered all of them were actually men.
On January 7th, Nanning police organized a group of 70 officers to crack down on the rampant sex trade in the city. During the raid, 14 “women” who were patrolling the streets and waiting on corners were taken into custody. Upon closer inspection, the officers discovered the women they had arrested were sporting wigs and had voices a little too deep to be be explained by cigarettes.
One man, called “Blue”, had dreamed of being a girl since he was young, and after cosmetic surgery (including boob job), came to Nanning to work in the sex trade. She said each “job” she worked would earn her 100RMB or more, and her clients never learned her birth sex.
Elsewhere in the station, one woman demanded of the police: “Is it so wrong that I like to dress as a woman and have strange men call me ‘Miss’? Am I not allowed to do that?”
An officer silenced the outburst when he bluntly responded “It doesn’t matter what you wear, prostitution is still illegal, duh.”
