Woman asked to prove gender to get license


A Georgia woman mistakenly listed as male on her birth certificate says she was horrified at what state workers told her she had to do to prove her gender.

When Nakia Grimes was born 37 years ago, her gender was listed as male on her birth certificate — even though she's 100 percent female.

She didn't notice the mistake (who really pays that much attention to their birth certificate?) until she had to renew her Georgia driver's license recently.

State officials told her she'd have to prove she was a woman to get the certificate corrected, ordering her to "have a PAP exam, have a doctor write a note verifying you're a woman, and bring it back — notarized," according to the "horrified and angry" Grimes.

Officials eventually agreed she is a woman after looking up her son Zion's birthday certificate, and told Grimes that the hoops she had to leap through are "not protocol."[Source]

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
