Other than to report a he-said-she-said exchange between one legislator and one witness, your Feb. 9 article on a hearing in the Maryland General Assembly (“Maryland explores ‘unspecified’ gender option for driver’s license applications,” Web) raised but did not really discuss a matter very important to many Marylanders. The hearing delved deeply into gender-related issues, and a video of it is posted on the Maryland.gov website. The testimony, which begins at the 9:10 mark, is followed by 45 minutes of informative give-and-take between the first three witnesses (two of whom are medical doctors) and several Republican legislators.

The hearing turned out to be an excellent seminar in what we have learned and what the science has taught us about gender identity — a sort of guide for the perplexed in the 21st century. Those interested in these issues would be well-served by listening to the discussion.
