APNewsBreak: Manning to begin gender treatment
Associated Press ^ | Jul 17, 2014 5:46 PM EDT | Lolita C. Baldor

The Bureau of Prisons has rejected the Army’s request to accept the transfer of national security leaker Pvt. Chelsea Manning from the military prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, to a civilian facility where she could get better treatment for her gender-identify condition. The military will instead begin the initial treatment for her.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has approved the Army’s recommendation to keep Manning in military custody and start a rudimentary level of gender treatment, a defense official said Thursday. The initial gender treatments could include allowing Manning to wear some female undergarments and also possibly provide some hormone treatments. […]

Manning has been diagnosed with gender dysphoria, the sense of being a woman in a man's body. Civilian prisons can provide treatment, and the Defense Department has argued repeatedly that it doesn’t have the medical expertise needed. As a result, the Army tried to work out a plan to transfer Manning to a federal prison. …

The group “Veterans for Peace” marched in our Independence Day Parade with a bigg banner “Free Chelsea Manning” on it. It got no cheers. It was telling, because the two groups that were before and after them got a lot of claps and cheers. Someone asked who “Chelsea Manning” was. I explained that it used to be “Bradley Manning” and he was the one who leaked the docs to Wikileaks. The guy’s response to me was less than printable (not directed at me, but toward the group).

Un-freakin-real. He SHOULD BE DEAD, executed, not eating up tax dollars! I cannot believe how blatant treason is treated today, I just can’t. From this freak to the freak in the oval office, “Oh it’s OK, it’s only treason in time of war!” Yeah, here’s all the US classified info, yeah let the terrorists go free, open the borders so then can get in”

So when he/she/it gets to a women’s federal pen Manning can come out as lesbian.

Bradley Manning is a coward, a traitor, and a mentally screwed up male, who apparently wants to have his penis removed.

I suggest a Ka-Bar.

Peyton or Eli?

The Bronco QB already has a girl's name, so it must be him.

It's a “He!” always will be despite the plumbing change. You cannot take a Y chromosome out of every cell in the body. What happens when “she” changes “her” mind and wants to revert to being a “he?” Too bad Charlie—I mean too bad Betty.

The AP thinks it is. And of course their opinion trumps all. I did not tag it “front page” either, FTR.

Putting “Chelsea” in with the general population would make this problem go away in a jiffy.

Why is the military trying to accommodate this misdirected soul? There was a time when the people in charge would just tell him to grow up and face the consequences of his actions instead of playing goofy. Not today!

How can anyone be gender confused?

Unless you were born blind and without hands it's pretty easy to find out for yourself!

“gender dysphoria, the sense of being a woman in a man’s body”

I smell BS. But be that as it may, does it make any sense to treat a mental disorder that has no organic origin,with what essentially is cosmetic surgery?

In the end what does it accomplish other than to give in to the “patient’s” delusions? The result, of course, is that if normal, sane people don’t go along with the delusions, they are penalized.

There must be a few farm boys on active duty who have experience in "gelding"?

It should not cost the taxpayer very much.

Explain the entire procedure to PVT Manning and just possibly, he/she/it may change his/her mind, thereby saving everyone a lot of hassle.

This ain’t my Uncle Bob’s Army.

He served in Viet Nam as a First Sgt. and is buried in Arlington. He passed away around 11 or 12 years ago during surgery.

The man was hardcore and I’m 100% certain this crap would have made him angry.
