CNN correspondent Victoria Arbiter would like to extend her sincerest congratulations to the Duchess of Cambridge. Nice, right? Except, wait — she's not so much congratulating Kate Middleton for giving birth to a healthy baby. She's congratulating her for giving birth to a healthy baby boy.
"This is how brilliant a royal Kate is," Arbiter told CNN. "There are women throughout British Royal Family history who have panicked over not being able to deliver a boy and here we are. Kate did it — first time."
Yes. A hearty congratulations to Kate Middleton from CNN, Victoria Arbiter, Henry VIII and everyone else out there who lacks a basic understanding of how sex chromosomes work. To think, had she been any less of a royal we might have been stuck with a girl succeeding the throne and you know what shit monarchs women make.
