She said she was "putting it in the file where everyone could see it" and that it wouldn't cause a problem with TSA or immigration.

Am I right to trust this? I do not want to do anything to jeopardize our trip. Indeed now there are no direct flights out at all that day even on United and none at all for return. I don't want the ticket cancelled but I am also afraid that the error will cause boarding problems all along our route (Washington to London, Amsterdam to Rome and back to Washington). Any advice for a non-seasoned international traveler?
I wouldn't worry about it. FA and GA don't really pay attention. Plus, let's face it, gender is become a little more "fluid" these days. If anyone squawks, tell them his hero is Bruce Jenner.
