Trans fat

This isn't a problem with Drudge specifically, but symptomatic of the sensationalistic, dishonest tactics of nearly all news media. The headline:

Even the ABC source uses the "pregnant man" grabber. Regardless of your political opinions on the gender status of a transexual, you have to admit that it's hardly unusual or newsworthy for a biological woman to be giving birth. Considering that this "man" sports all of the applicable lady bits (they even put "man" in quotes the first time this story came up), I wonder what headline something like this would prompt?:

"Dog Walks, Takes Pictures, Dresses Self For Halloween!"
