Liu Zhu (??), a regional contestant from Nanchong, Sichuan province, didn't get a very warm reception from the judges because he wore women's clothing to audition. One judge in particular was so blown away that she refused to believe Liu Zhu is a boy. First she asked for his ID and then she asked to examine his genitals!
According to the interview after, Liu Zhu has always been this way since he was young. He always dressed this way in everyday life, and his family has already accepted him. "This way is more natural, if I purposely dress like a boy just for this contest, I think it would be very fake." "I am in deed a boy, and I dress like this every day, but I think everyone has their own choice, their own way of life."
The judge called on Chinese "netizens" to do a background check on the boy to discover if he was tricking the judges into thinking he was a crossdressing boy instead of an "actual" girl so he could win the competition. I know I'm judging across cultural lines, but I'm having problems typing "he" instead of "she" since Liu Zhu presents as female all the time. Apparently my Trans 101 training took root!
