Title: Solidaritas Dan Masalah Sosial Kelompok Waria (tinjauan tentang sosiologis dunia sosial kaum waria di Kotamadya Bandung)
Author: Koes Soedijati, Elisabeth
Abstract: This research is constructed on the solidarity and social problem "waria"'s group in Bandung municipality. The term "waria" which means male woman, in one individual, illustrates the condition of a person as if having both female and male personality. The purpose of this research is to study how far solidarity and problem social "waria"'s group take place and what development is carried out by the Social Service. This study also tries to understand what "waria" really is and why it is so. The method used in this research is descriptive and analytic with qualitative approach by way of limited participating observation and orientated interview of 39 persons waria. The research result justifies that a "waria" possesses a male physical structure but an innate female psyche; they can be divided into two groups namely (1) intersexuals with male sexual organs but having female hormone; and transsexuals having male physical structure but female psyche. Besides that, results of investigation strengthen the opinion of sex deviation scientists that the "waria" have a strong sexual desire towards men; to satisfy that desire many of them go "down street", having steady sexual intercourse with their "boy-friend" and some even pay men they desire and who are willing to serve them. Lack of conformity between physical structure and psyche causes deviant behavior as mentionied above; and this deviant behavior arouses social problems. Although they form a minority group their condition makes it easy for them to contact each other and to form a compact organization. Their situation enables them to have effective interactions which strenghen their solidarity towards each other.
