This is from the paper, but it still made my head hurt for a second. In Ask Amy, the letter say nurmerous times, "My boyfriend," "he," but then Amy says, "Am I right in assuming he was a male stripper?" (The writer was asking Amy how to ask her boyfriend to not mention to her teenage daughters the fact that he danced in an adult club while in college.)
I suppose it is possible that the person had a sex change, but come on Amy! Plus, even if the guy had only "danced" and not "stripped" the letter writer was still concerned.
It was just odd. Was Amy verifying the person's sex or the stripping? If it was the stripping, why say "male stripper"? That's like using the phrase, "male nurse"--just weird and not relevant.
