On March 28th, 2023, the nickname resurfaced while Nikolas Ferreira was attending a Government Assembly, being called a "chupetinha" (little pacifier in English), by other congressmen.

For instance, on March 8th, 2023, he wore a wig[8] during a speech on the tribune of the Chamber of Deputies, saying that he "felt like a transwoman" and, therefore, would have “a place to speak” for the International Women's Day tribune.
