The perils of pronouns

I pity the poor English as a Second Language student who has to make heads or tails (no pun intended) (okay, pun intended) this article:
Chastity Bono is having a sex change to become a man. A spokesman for Bono, born a girl to Sonny and Cher, says he "has made the courageous decision to honor his true identity" and began the sex-change process earlier this year. Publicist Howard Bragman said Bono is proud of his decision and hopes "that his choice to transition will open the hearts and minds of the public regarding this issue."
Yeah, that wasn't at all confusing.
