Chanee - Thai gays use this slang word which means a gibbon (a kind of monkey)--to refer to women. It is said that when women speak of their husbands in a group they use the colloquial "pou" and the chant of "pou, pou" in a group of women chatting supposedly sounds like the gibbon's call.

E Ab - This means "a man hiding what he is--i.e. a woman" (E is a colluqial for woman, Ab means hiding)
