Skip to comments.Bradley Manning: I want to live as a woman named Chelsea

Bradley Manning plans to live as a woman named Chelsea and wants to begin hormone therapy as soon as possible, the soldier said Thursday, a day after being sentenced to 35 years in prison for sending classified material to WikiLeaks.
Manning announced the decision in a written statement provided to NBC's "Today" show, asking supporters to refer to him by his new name and the feminine pronoun. The statement was signed "Chelsea E. Manning."
"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," the statement read.
Manning's defense attorney David Coombs told "Today" in an interview that he is hoping officials at the military prison in Fort Leavenworth, Kan., will accommodate Manning's request for hormone therapy.
"If Fort Leavenworth does not, then I'm going to do everything in my power to make sure they are forced to do so," Coombs said.

Sick and evil, what a combination.
Too bad he’s going to federal prison. At a state prison, his fellow inmates would gladly treat him like a female.
Could you imagine this guy serving in the Army? Could you have seen him in the service in the 1940’s?
I don’t know anything of Bradley’s background but can I safely assume he was abused, if not molested, as a child?
Where you’re going YOU WILL LIVE AS CHELSEA..........
That is the absolutely most abominable, gayest thing I’ve ever heard. And this sort of degraded, downtrodden caliber of enlisted soldier is rampant throughout our military forces.
Alas, Brave New Babylon.
That's possible...but in his/her/its case it's just as possible that we simply have a "bad seed".I firmly believe in the existence of "bad seeds"....I think they're very uncommon but they *do* exist.
He either would have been given a Section 8 or been tossed overboard...
If Bill Clinton had a daughter/son it would look like Bradley Manning/Chelsea.
Of course homosexuals should be in the military and have access to top secret documents. They’re just like everybody else.
F’ing freak show now taking place. They’re going to destroy the armed forces because normal God fearing, patriotic young men won’t join an organization of faggots. They destroyed the priesthood with their perversion and altered mental image of themselves.
But that was the goal all along. To make the armed forces as useless as today’s police force with elements of thugs to collect revenue and destroy domestic opposition.
It's quite bigoted of you to call it abuse or molestation.
I'm sure he was simply reassured, probably in elementary school, that being different (sexually speaking) was quite normal. Laudable in fact.
I'm also sure that a kindly older gentleman helped him explore his sexual differences at a young age.

The newest action figure will be called G.I. Joanne.
RE: Of course homosexuals should be in the military and have access to top secret documents. Theyre just like everybody else.
Can the ‘T’ in LGBT also be a ‘L’ and a ‘G’?
Yet, the whole story is so emblematic of what seems to constitute America circa-2013... madness and depravity.
Why isn’t he swinging from a tree yet?
I have observed the exact parallel with the Church and our military. It will lead to our defeat and downfall. I could say “if it’s not stopped”, but I know it can’t be stopped at this point.
