Latest 'news' from the Mail

The Mail website is running a 'story' about the 'first' pictures of Chaz Bono. Chaz used to be Chastity, daughter of Cher, but has had gender realignment surgery.

The Mail prefers to use the term 'sex change' in its headline, although this is regarded as an inappropriate phrase by some trans campaigners such as Press for Change (although not as bad as Sun favourite 'tranny')

What's baffling about the story, given that is all about Chaz being a man, is this line:
Chaz, who now refers to himself as a 'he', was spotted enjoying a massage in West Hollywood yesterday.
And later: Referring to his client as 'he', publicist Howard Bragman said last week...

Well he is a man. Why wouldn't he now refer to himself as he? Although he probably refers to himself as he, not 'he'.
