Current headline on boston.com: "Reilly chooses female for running mate." Yes, the story itself expands the headline to "female representative." But still. How about "Reilly chooses woman for running mate"? That way, they could save "female" for all the times they incorrectly use "woman"--say, when they write about "women doctors" or "women professors."

grrr.
