Welcome to the joys of beauracracy.  I think the only better one is when the 
system decides that you are deceased.  Try convincing the US government that 
you are, indeed, NOT dead.

Unfortunately gender does matter. In 1972 I received a draft notice to go to
Viet Nam (lucky lottery winner...lol). Seems they misspelled my name. Being
(obviously) female did not matter and I had to have a genetic work up done
to prove that  I was indeed a  female. My birth certificate was not accepted
either. So much for living in this mans' world.
