Well put Seery.
Sanitsuda likes to take a current (and real) incidnet and make sweeping generalisations under the cover of journalism, deliberately trying to poison the public opinion. She paints pictures of rife homosexuality, drugs, corruption, greed etc.. and endlessly calls for change, without any positive suggestion of how it might come about. Basically likes to tear down the Sangha without purpose - I can only call it spiteful.
Regarding the effeminite monks, what she says is in fact true, and it is widely tolerated. The robe style, of the kind with the sash tied about the waist, is varied to go across the breast and under the shoulder rather than over. Also colouring is applied to lips, which although failry subtle, when added to the overall effect, is very clear. This seems to be tolerated for the most part, albeit with some gentle ridiculing.
I should add that most such monks are ordained muchly against their wishes. There is often pressure on youths to ordain in hope of sorting out their problems - sexuality, drugs, gang mentality etc.. So they do their term and disrobe accordingly, usually after finishing the monastic education levels. They introduce the, ahem.. style changes .. bit by bit so it is difficult for the Sangha to really draw the line as it starts to occur.
Still, people are only people, and as groups go, Thai Buddhism is in a very healthy state. Reading the Vinaya, much worse things used to happen in the Buddha's time. The fact that so called 'scandals' are so tame is indicative of a good Sangha IMO
