It is the tragic story of the death of her husband of seven years and how an insensitive judiciary not only invalidated her marriage, but declared her to be a "male" despite having a vagina and all other female physical appearance characteristics. Despite all medical evidence to the contrary, the courts have said that she cannot sue a doctor for wrongful death of her husband, because her marriage is invalid.
It is the story of how narrowmindedness and prejudice can affect us all. It can even affect those who are not even personally aware of their chromosome configuration, or have chromosomes that do not fit within the court's narrow definition of what are "man" and "woman" chromosomes.

In South Korea in 1996, a woman was brutally raped.
The courts ruled that since she had XY chromosomes
(despite having a rapable vagina) she could not be raped,
and the courts dismissed the rape case against
the multiple defendants, opting for a lesser charge.
Taken literally, the Texas 4th Court of Appeals upholds
