I have always believed there is a chain of events that have a cause and effect. If you know the chain of events no one will question the outcome.
So I knew I was moving to TX and the trouble I may run into down here. So I set my own chain of events. I had my named changed in WA, moved to TX and set everything up in my new name. I then had my GRS in PA and then went back to WA to get my gender changed on the DL. I went back to TX and changed my gender on my Social Security.
I now had all the information and steps to get my birth certificate (BC) changed in CA. I just received my BC and now I was ready to get my TX DL.
LOL, the duck walked into the TX DMV with a WA DL, SS card, and a CA BC and the duck was given a TX DL as a female duck w/ motorcycle endorsement.
Everyone can set their own chain of events. For some there are a lot of pitfalls but stay the course and you can be a failure like Caroline.
Hugs to all, Galina
Ps - yea I travel a lot
