gender bureaucracy 

University College Cork can't update my records themselves because I'm no longer a student there. I have to go talk directly to the National University of Ireland. Fortunately they just have a pretty simple form to fill out that does include a space for updating your gender. Unfortunately the committee that approves amendments only meets three times a year.

@oakreef I feel your pain, I'm a current student but got half-way through the name/gender change bureaucracy with the uni before they closed the place down for Covid, so half my stuff has Abigail and half of it has some bloke's name

@oakreef That sounds pretty typical for academia, tbh - both the good intentions and the committees that meet three times a year
