Chelsea Manning 'may sue' over gender dysphoria therapy (Prisoner PV1 Bradley Manning)
The British Broadcasting Corporation ^ | May 19, 2014 | Staff

A lawyer for convicted US document leaker Chelsea Manning has threatened to sue the army if she is not given sex change therapy in military prison.

Nancy Hollander said the army had an obligation to treat Pte First Class Manning for her "transgender issues".

And she said Pte Manning would not be safe if transferred to a civilian prison for treatment there.

Formerly known as Bradley, Pte Manning is serving a 35-year sentence for leaking classified files to Wikileaks.

After her conviction last year, the former army intelligence analyst announced she wanted to live as a woman.

'A trick'

In an interview with the BBC's Rajini Vaidyanathan, Ms Hollander said Pte Manning was "doing well, as well as one can do with a long prison sentence", and would be active in the appeal against her sentence.

But she said recent reports in the US media that military officials were considering transferring Pte Manning to a federal civilian prison for treatment of gender dysphoria was "not really a positive sign".(continued)

...if she is not given sex change therapy in military prison.

He's not a "she" and never can be regardless of how many operations he gets.

Give him a rusty butter knife and a bottle Boone’s Farm and let him handle his own Peckerectomy.

The appeal defense will be that the defendant is just not the same person as the one who committed the crime...

“Nancy Hollander said the army had an obligation to treat Pte First Class Manning for her “transgender issues”.”

And our SecDef is open to “continuously reviewing” the ban here?

BTW, “his” transgender issues. That Y chromosome isn’t going away.

This whole thing is so bizarre I keep trying to figure out how it’s a psyop.

Maybe it’s just one of those “the whole world is crazy so give up trying to stay sane” general applicability psyops, to maintain the background noise. Except I keep thinking I can hear Democrats muttering “we can use this” in the background...

If one is ‘meant’ to be transgender, why do transgenders ‘have issues’ ?

When is this treasonous faggot’s date with the executioner for betraying his country and engaging in espionage to provide aid and comfort to the enemy in a time of war because he was having a hissy fit over the “don’t ask don’t tell” policy that was in place before he joined the military?

Well, I have an idea that might make everyone happy. Take him out of the federal prison and put him in a nice, low-cost state prison. He’s already spilled the beans, he’s not much of security risk, so putting him in with the other prisoners would be no problemo. I believe that would keep his fellow prisoners occupied and out of mischief, and would also help him to fulfill his wish, at little or no cost to the taxpayer. Seems like a win-win to me.

I think the U.S. Government can counter sue him for leaking top secrets to our enemies.

There is an easy test Manning can take to clear up his gender confusion:

If the person’s chromosone profile consists of an “X/Y” pair, they are a dude and there is nothing that can change that.

No amount of makeup, stylish fashions or even plastic surgery can change it. All Manning will ever be is a dude playing “dress-up”. The sooner he comes to grips with that, the happier he will be and it is not the US tax-payer’s responsibility to “make him happy”.

I’m wondering where are our military and civilian leaders who can articulate that very simple, unarguable, very concise fact of life and dismiss with this foolishness?
