Is Winnie The Pooh a Girl?

Pooh Meme

I saw this meme on Facebook this week and it floored me.

I had always assumed Winnie the Pooh was a boy. So I had to research.  Here's the truth.

Technically, Winnie the Pooh is actually a girl...AND a boy.  A.A. Milne, the author of the Winnie the Pooh books, named his famous bear after his son's toy stuffed bear named Winnie the Pooh. In the books and movies Winnie the Pooh is a boy. But, his son, Christopher (inspiration for Christopher Robin) named his bear Winnie after a bear he saw in a Canadian Zoo named Winnie or Winnipeg Bear.  Winnipeg Bear was a girl.

So, to answer the question..."Is Winnie The Pooh a Boy Or A Girl?"  Answer: Yes

Now, go see Christopher Robin this weekend without all the gender questions.
