a fafafine is a Somoan word litterally translated as "like a woman". The word is used to describe a male who takes on the identity of a female. fafafine are not considered to be gay, since they feel that they are men trapped inside the bodies of women.
In American Samoa, fafafine are accepted as a normal part of society.
