Interesting little problem... so you want to call a method, get the 
string result and have OGNL evaluate that string as if it were a Map.
Sounds plausible, but I don't like your chances.  I throw a breakpoint 
in ListUIBean to see what object you're getting from OGNL.

My guess is based on Dave's second one:

<s:select name="gender" id="gender" list="#@java.util.LinkedHashMap@{(getText(''))}"/>

parenthesis to ensure getText is evaluated first (should be anyway)
Then construct a map [1] using the string as the parameter
