Georgia Makes Mother Prove She’s a Woman to Get New Birth Certificate

· June 26, 2013


A Georgia mother says she was shocked to discover that her 37-year-old birth certificate accidentally listed her as a man, but was truly floored when the state’s Vital Records Services refused to take her on her word that she was really a woman, and demanded she submit to an invasive Pap test to prove it.

Speaking with FOX 5 News, Grimes said she needed to obtain a new birth certificate to meet the DMV’s new requirements for the renewal of a driver’s license.

When I went to retrieve my birth certificate, I let her know the se* status is wrong,” Grimes said. “I’m a woman, was born a woman.”

But the clerk dismissed Grimes’ claim, telling her she needed to provide the state with proof.

She said I needed to go have a PAP exam, have a doctor write a note verifying you’re a woman, and bring it back-– notarized,” Grimes told the local Fox affiliate.

After the station contacted the Vital Records Services, their tune suddenly changed.

A director told WAGA the clerk did not follow protocol, and the incident would be investigated.

Ultimately, Grimes was issued a new birth certificate after the department looked up her son’s birth certificate, confirming that she was, in fact, female.
