Bashar and Asma's Infinite Playlist: Shouldn't a 37-year-old woman with a son already have quite a few doctors who could vouch for her vagina? I don't see what's so horrifying about it.
Kristoph57: In the South, an unregulated vagina, free of interference from the government, for that long, is both fascinating and horrifying.
Theaetetus: Or erase it altogether, since it clearly doesn't matter.
Arkanaut: You know what would really have been weird? If the Pap smear said she's a man.
99.998er: I feel for Zion, her kid. He is going to grow up with all kinds of gender issues, not to mention a ridiculous name.
Facetious_Speciest: So, we're cool, right?Going to go with "no," here. Does "no" work for the state of Georgia?
dopekitty74: Arkanaut: You know what would really have been weird? If the Pap smear said she's a man.O.o/i DO hope you're not serious..
The Fifth Dentist: If any state droid ever asks me to "prove my gender" I'll be doing the old "zzzziiiip...thud " just before my arrest for indecent exposure
caffeine_addict: So she got an original GA DL but upon renewal they need the birth certificate?
caffeine_addict: OK. Got it. "new rules". What a crock. Why the hell would you need a birth certificate for a DL renewal? I can understand the President but for a Drivers License?
Another Government Employee: caffeine_addict: So she got an original GA DL but upon renewal they need the birth certificate?Yep. Part of the "Secure ID" process the Feds want everyone to go through.
Theaetetus: A Clayton County woman's birth certificate has listed her as a man for the last 37 years, but she didn't notice the mistake until now. Nakia Grimes says she was horrified when state workers told her she'd need a doctor's note proving her gender to get it corrected.Why? If they were fine with a mistake for 37 years, then the state must not care about the gender field. Just change it. Or erase it altogether, since it clearly doesn't matter.
caffeine_addict: Another Government Employee: caffeine_addict: So she got an original GA DL but upon renewal they need the birth certificate?Yep. Part of the "Secure ID" process the Feds want everyone to go through.I don't get the Fed thing. I just renewed my PA DL and did it online, went to a photo center and done. So is this a Georgia thing?PA - no birth certificate was required
Wall_of_Doodoo: If I remember my Latin correctly, the masculine form of the name, 'D'Nakia', is only one letter off from the feminine 'Nakia' and the 'D' is soft in pronunciation.As a result, I can see how the mix up occurred and am just surprised it doesn't happen more often.
