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.
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)

Good grief. They’re already referring to him with female pronouns. What a bunch of fag-hags.
Well, look at who got pushed to the front of the line. And it still isn’t enough. BTT
Put him on a secret list.
Two words for Bradley Manning: General Population!

Two words for that traitor... Dirt nap...
does anybody in the LGBT community ever think that people such as Manning are a bad reflection on their community??????
He's not a "she" and never can be regardless of how many operations he gets.
why does a traitor in prison get priority over veterans???
Give him a rusty butter knife and a bottle Boone’s Farm and let him handle his own Peckerectomy.
That would be “it”. Gender confused traitor?
Or one: genpop
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.
Cut his penis off and put him back in his cell and tell him to shut up!
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’ ?
