Here's some annoying fanon: "Kirk was born in Iowa."
When what he said in The Voyage Home was "No, I'm from Iowa, I only work in outer space."
That's not fanon, though, just a reasonable conclusion from onscreen dialogue. There really was no reason for people to believe that Kirk wasn't
born in Iowa. In fact, there's no reason to believe that still isn't the case for Kirk Prime who may not have been born until after
came back to Earth in the original timeline.
