“Não canto para ninguém, só resolvi cantar para o Ídolos. Criei coragem e vim”, disse Lívia antes de enfrentar sua primeira audição no programa Ídolos, da Record. Lívia é de Fortaleza e foi ao programa acompanhada pela mãe. Assim que abriu a boca e cantou “Negue”, com timbre parecido ao da cantora Maria Bethânia, a loira agradou o júri e levou três “sim” para a próxima etapa da competição.

Do I “Identify” as intersex? actually no, I spent most of my life being hacked and chopped by doctors and ended up female, so if I “Identify” as anything it would probably be female. Does my being intersex somehow legitimize my being female? well no. in legal terms in the UK it is more likely to have me legally defined as male than female. Thanks to Julienne Imperatio Mc Ginley’s flawed and biased studies on the condition I have and the urban myth peddled by the likes of Jeoffrey Eugenides. Is intersex all about having both sets of genitalia and surgery? No the notion of both sets of genitalia as the media would have it is more an urban myth than fact there are conditions where this happens but not the way the media describe it. Is it about gender? no! society makes it that way not us. Is it about identity? Not really that is the latest spin presented by controlling quacks who want to peddle terms like “Disorders of Sex Development” to keep the garden of society tidy.

Life Where the Law is Real
When she was hired by Wal-Mart in 2005, Chrissy Nakonsky explained to her employer that she was a transgender person transitioning from male to female, and that she self-identified as a woman. Although her legal name was Jeffrey, she was permitted to dress according to the women’s dress code, and to wear the name “Chrissy” on her name badge. Then one day in January 2006, a Wal-Mart assistant manager informed her that she would no longer be permitted to dress as a woman or to wear earrings or her hair in a ponytail. Some customers had complained and threatened to stop shopping at Wal-Mart unless she dressed as a man, the manager explained. Wal-Mart’s legal department subsequently advised her that she could not dress as a woman unless she had a doctor’s excuse, and that she would be terminated if she violated the men’s dress code without such an excuse.
