A particularly annoying, typically bashful male pre-teen or teen semi-transsexual of South Asian descent. These young males can be observed selling themselves on the streets of Manila, Hanoi and Kolkata, competing in international telethons or contests, or singing at tacky wedding receptions in Delhi.

That businessman from Indiana is going to Cambodia to buy several Sanjayas to take back to the Marriott, where after they have exhausted their passions will retire to the lobby disco to watch several other Sanjayas perform their contortionist routine to Enya.

A millennium version of what was once known as a pansy. Sanjayas are “men” who have very obviously received an uncomfortable amount of love from his mommy and sisters. Too feminine to be heterosexual, not stylish enough to be metrosexual and not flamboyant to be homosexual, Sanjayas are has confused as the rest of us are about which vine they swing on. Hints to ones Sanjayality:

1. You go to a salon instead of a barber
2. You openly admit to feminine acts such as, hula-hooping, eyebrow plucking and a love of Disney movies
3. You aspire to be on magazine covers such as Teen or Tiger Beat
4. 12 year old girls (and younger) have abandon their Backstreet Boys fan club to start one for you.
