Early this morning, Chelsea Manning who was recently sentenced to 35 years for leaking classified documents announced to the world that she would be transitioning:
"As I transition into this next phase of my life, I want everyone to know the real me. I am Chelsea Manning. I am a female. Given the way that I feel, and have felt since childhood, I want to begin hormone therapy as soon as possible. I hope that you will support me in this transition. I also request that, starting today, you refer to me by my new name and use the feminine pronoun (except in official mail to the confinement facility). I look forward to receiving letters from supporters and having the opportunity to write back."
That Manning is trans isnt exactly news for some time, it has been fairly public that Manning had questions about her gender assigned at birth. What is news, however, is Mannings request to be called Chelsea and to be referred to with feminine pronouns.
Now is the time when the solidarity politics of the folks on the left who have been behind Manning this whole time will be tested will they take the simple action of respecting her wishes to self-determine her gender? Im also thinking about the fact that she has just been sentenced to 35 years in a mens prison, and the added pain and trauma of this misgendering in addition to that of imprisonment. Already the media is misgendering, using incorrect pronouns, posting inflammatory comparison pictures. I hope the left will do better.
IMO seems to say there could be mental issues with gays in the military or connected to government contracts.
Wait. If Manning will be a woman, shouldn’t there be a new trial. She was never convicted of a crime, and allowed to challenge her accusers. A woman is also, much less likely to be convicted of a crime.
Charge him/her for the treatments and surgery. If he/she earns $1/day in prison, it will be 100,000 days before he has paid off the bill. Only then will he/she be released.
How long before straights are banned from the military?
Already happening. You heard about the 19 year veteran Air Force NCO who was “reassigned” because he wouldn’t tell his lesbian CO that he agrees with homomarriage, didn’t you?
Opening line: US soldier Bradley Manning has become a woman called Chelsea. Only in America, people.
“she is transitioning”
and so is this nation led by a male who is also transitioning. =)
I knew this was coming from the feminazis.
During the trial he did not claim to be female, but instead passed as a male. Now, he claims to be female and of course his lawyers will get him sent to a women’s prison and get him out in 2 years.
Maybe it should change it’s name to WOMANning.
How did a kid this screwed up ever get a security clearance that high???
No. If he's pardoned, he's on his own the get his peepee whacked. He wants to stay in the slammer so he can get that and a nice pair of boobies bolted on.
Turn him over to the Taliban. They’ll make a woman out of him in no time.
“Manning announces she is transitioning”
Should have been transitioning several years ago...........
transitioning from the living to the non-living that is!
I, IronJack, request that, starting today, you refer to my by the title bestowed on me by my Orellian prelates: Lord of the Universe IronJack, and that you use the royal pronoun Xshaslkdfjk# (nominative case), qopwierus-boop-boob (objective case), and Dweezil (genitive case). All are pronounced "Master."
Thank you for complying with this entirely sane and reasonable request. Now excuse me while I catch the intergalactic shuttle back to my hotel on Speculum V.
This country’s falling straight downhill at supersonic speed.
No - he’s not a woman. He’s a treasonous mental case.
She will nag the prison guards to death!
Don't know if he/she will survive 2 years in prison, unless it's in solitary confinement.
Somehow I think the women will rough him up more than the men would have.
Who sits in the White House?
Until that Y chromosome miraculously becomes an X, he’s a he.
Wikipedia has already changed it to Chelsea, and changed all the pronouns to ‘She’. Somebody actually took the time to validate this nonsense.
HE is NOT a “she” however much he pronounces...
It will always be in HIS DNA and HE still has a talleywacker!
Is that also known as a “chopidicktomy”?
There were guys like that in the past also. Manning would have been one of the WW2 soldiers that Patton slapped silly.
Shame to see that happen to a nice Mauser 98K bayonet...
Because the country has gone so far to the left that it no longer understands that someone like this is screwed up.
She’ll be the belle of the ball in Leavenworth!
I choose REALITY!
He can never be a she, simply not possible

If this little faggot is in lock-up how is he able to communicate this garbage?
His lawyer read Manning’s statement.
And NO WAY should we get stuck with the bill for this little piece of dog poop's "hormones" and other "treatment". Just wait...we'll soon be hearing how we are "depriving it of its rights" if we don't allow the boy-->girl transition treatment on the taxpayer's dime.
How about tattooing his nether cheeks as "The Midtown Tunnel" to welcome him to his new life?
Who pays for “its” transition??
I thought “it” was a military prisoner.
Does the public have to pay for hormones too?
This little piece of gutterscum isn’t a “she”, nor does it possess the integrity to be associated with members of the military. BRADLEY Manning is a pussy, and now nothing more than a prisoner.
Umm, his lawyers, publicists, staff, posse, entourage, fans, supporters....
Instead of joining the Army, Manning should have Hitch-hiked his way across the U.S.A.
Plucked his eyebrows on the way
Shaved his legs and then he could have pretended to be a she
and say, “Hey babe, take a walk on the wild side”
I am truly ashamed that we share the same MOS.
There is a remarkably interesting article in National Review this week about the issue of transgender and transsexual. I have not been able to find it on the site yet.
Worth the read.
