That's right, "her." Beatie is legally a man, but no medical or chemical procedure has changed the fact that she's still a woman -- as her pregnancy proves beyond all doubt.
Yet plugging "pregnant man" into Google News gets 460 current articles about Beatie's newest soon-to-be bundle of joy. Is political correctness and the fear of being labeled a bigot strangling the media's sense of reality? Or is it simply that a "pregnant man" headline makes for a conveniently brief and sensational way of bringing attention to this story, (which really wouldn't be much of a story without the "pregnant man" tag)?
With all due respect to the transgender community -- this is ridiculous.
