First, the word ‘kteuy’ is offensive and should be avoided, particularly by the public officials. Second, Mr. Chamroeun’s comment that police were targeting transgender people as a distinct group, rather than sex workers in general, suggests the existence of discrimination on the basis of gender identity by authorities.
