Letter to the Editor
Thursday, June 27, 2013, 8:55 p.m.

I was perplexed by The Associated Press news story “Agencies, states revise gender-designation rules” in the print edition of the June 16 Trib. The problem, at least in my mind, is simple. What does that person's DNA say that person is?

You can have all the plastic surgery you want, wear whatever you want or act however you want. If your DNA says you are a male, then you are a male (notwithstanding all the politically correct attempts at appeasement).
