A Man's Man


Ann Margarette Fegen is a woman. She has always been a woman. But her new passport lists her gender as male. Fegen can't understand why all of the other information on the passport is correct, but that is wrong. And when she asked South African authorities to correct the error, they told her she'd have to bring a written note from a surgeon saying she had not had a sex-change operation. "Everyone makes mistakes and I was fine with that, but I could not understand why they treated me in such an unprofessional way," she told local reporters.
