Simple human error...but it seems it's almost impossible to correct a mistake on the passport of Kim Walmsley, 50, who was registered at her birth in February 1965 as a boy
in the news,Icon360blog learnt that,A British woman has revealed how she has spent around £150,000 trying to correct her birth certificate after it was accidentally recorded that she was born male.
Mother-of-five Kim Walmsley, from Liverpool, realised that the legal document identified her as a 'boy' more than a decade ago when she applied for a full-time Australian visa.

Kim and husband Jack say their lives have been transformed by the mistake of one registrar; the couple had to return from Australia when Kim couldn't get a new passport
While Mrs Walmsley initially assumed the issue would be easy to correct, she has since been forced to move home from Australia after she was unable to resolve the situation and get a new passport.
She said: 'The whole thing is absolutely disgusting. I’ve lived nearly 40 years not realising I was actually registered as a boy and then all of a sudden my whole life fell apart.
Mrs Walmsley says the cost of the move and the paperwork trying to fight it has hampered her life.
Although officials have conceded that the mistake is genuine and agreed to add a note in the margin of the certificate correcting it, they say they can't change the original, which is the only one officially recognised by the court.
The decision rendered her marriage unofficial and leaves her unable to move back to Australia.
we feel for her,Seems a lot, couldn't a doctor just gave her a note?
