(Newsbusters) After overwrought pressure from the usual gay “anti-defamation” lobbyists, the Associated Press has caved in and made another new statement approving the use of “his husband” and “her wife” in news stories. as if they’ve taken a stand for neutrality, instead of rewriting the gender dictionary.

“Victory!” was the headline on several gay websites as AP issued a new entry in its AP Stylebook Online, and is scheduled to appear in the 2013 print and mobile additions:

husband, wife: Regardless of sexual orientation, husband or wife is acceptable in all references to individuals in any legally recognized marriage. Spouse or partner may be used if requested.
