Skip to comments.He Is Not Bradley Manning. She Is Chelsea Manning. Deal With It. (Hashtag #YouWillHurl)

Bradley Manning, the Army private sentenced Wednesday to 35 years in prison for leaking government files to WikiLeaks, announced Thursday in a statement to NBC's "Today" that he is, as of now, a she:
"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).
Chelsea E. Manning"
This morning, Wikipedia users changed Manning's entry on the site accordingly, such that it now reads, "Chelsea Manning (officially Bradley Edward Manning; born December 17, 1987)" and refers to Manning throughout as "she." And yet, from ABC News to CBS News to Reuters to The New York Times to Politico, much of the mainstream media insists on using the male pronoun. Even the "Today" article about Manning's statement defiantly refers to her as "he," most notably when quoting the very sentence in which Manning asks that she be referred to as "she."
The Guardian, to its credit, changed its topic page to "Chelsea Manning." This should not be the exception, but the rule. Even the Associated Press stylebook says so: that reporters should "use the pronoun preferred by the individuals who have acquired the physical characteristics of the opposite sex or present themselves in a way that does not correspond with their sex at birth. If that preference is not expressed, use the pronoun consistent with the way the individuals live publicly."(continued)

My bet is that he did this (probably regards it as a stroke of brilliance) to one day get released from jail based on some future LGBT pushed law that automatically makes him a victim of the evil straight man.
I will forget you ever existed by the end of the weekend. Have a nice life in prison.
The entire idea of someone being born in the wrong body is absurd. There is no such thing as a transgendered person. He’s a homosexual who denies God as the creator.
He is a man and will always be, mutilation or not. I am under no obligation to “recognize” his mental delusion as reality
I've heard a couple of "celebrating diversity" types sympathizing with Manning, but I'm surprised that the most prevalent reaction, even in the MSM, has been pretty much close to your comment. I think most people's thresholds for BS have been reached. Finally.
Bill Clinton, pick up the white courtesy phone, Chelsea wants to talk to you.
I am Master Porky, King of all I survey, Ruler of all porcine. You shall refer to me as your Holy Sausageness!
HE is ridiculous. Somehow I don’t think your demand to be called something or referred to in a particular way requires others to do so.
I think you are correct, dweji-nim, it is all a fantastical fantasy
“dwaeji” means pig and “nim” is sir.
Will she be Lavender Queen of the jail cell now ?
I am under no obligation to “recognize” this idiotic loser as anything other than what HE is: a homosexual nut-job guilty of treason, no matter what the feminazi judge claimed and worthy of a firing squad, in normal times.
In his mind, he is his own creator.
I am Princess Angelina Contesa Louisa Francesca Banana-Fanna Bo Besca the Third. You may call me... forget that, don't call me you little freak.
I am not going to play along with people's mental illness anymore. It isn't healthy.
One more dangerous examples of the fact that homosexual behavior is just a symptom of a serious mental disorder. The country’s security was compromised by a mightily confused and needing of help freak.
The homosexual lobby needs to be stopped before there isn’t an institution left that will be able to do its job without worrying about the private parts of the confused minority who worry about putting their privates where they know they should not. They know they’re nuts. Like the lady, they protest way too much. The crazy thing is that most people realize the homosexual activists are crazy, but everyone pretends for fear of being called “phobic.” The actual term “homophobic” was coined to describe men who fear that they themselves were homosexual! The truth is everyone knows it’s a poor, poor choice.
The U.S. military has been sissified. universities have been sissified. Barack Obama, now that he’s in his second term, wants to be able to openly return to the bathhouse days. The creeps of the gay and lesbian journalism association have gotten jobs in main stream media and ignore important events, but instead make their homosexual demands and freak show photos into “news.”
How much do folks want to bet that part of the strategy is to get on the short-list for a Presidential pardon?
A gender-confused traitor who made it into the US Army and stood up to it.
Dear Leader can’t possibly resist letting a bird like that out of its cage.
Are all those people out there who said, ‘I am Bradley Manning’, now going to have to question their gender identity?
Woke up, it was a Chelsea Manning, and the first thing that I heard
Was a brainless prattling newsbabe, brightly polishing the turd
It came a-feeling up like missing balls, and sappy just like CNN
Oh, wow, he's gay
How can George Bush pay?
And he'll wear Prada in his cell
Don’t do it, Laz! She’s a dude!
how can Manning be a she when he hasn’t had a Penectomy??
He is still Bradley Manning, and he belongs in a lunatic asylum. Deal with it.
Dude, you're a dude. Secondly, this next phase of your life is military prison. You're going to stand at attention all day and crawl under a painted line to get to chow. You basically just signed up for twenty years of boot camp, only worse. You're not going to be getting breast implants and dancing around like Julie Andrews. "Taliban Boy" John Walker Lindh is living it up compared to what you're facing.
How in the hell did this nutcase ever get a security clearance?
A G-3 NCO I worked with at I Corps where I was in G-2 had been a drill sergeant at the disciplinary barracks. No thanks.
The Guardian, to its credit, changed its topic page to “Chelsea Manning.” This should not be the exception, but the rule.
The man’s name is still legally Bradley Manning - he has not filed for a legal change of name and the name Chelsea is nowhere on his birth certificate or other legal identity documents.
Our friend Bradley Manning can refer to himself Chelsea, Princess , Pocahontas or Tinker Bell as far as he is concerned, but the rest of the calls min Brad.
It is serious breach of Journalistic Ethics and Code of Conduct to falsely refer to this man named Brad as a woman named Chelsea.
No surprise, journalists have long since become left wing group think agenda driven journolisters, not serious, ethical professionals
Bradley did the crime, Bradley needs to do the time first
Mostly you're right, and for these cases, transgendrism goes beyond mere homosexuality and into massively malignant narcissism.
However, it's also wise to remember that there are situations where, from a pure biological basis, the actual development of a human body does not follow genetic coding. Those people I have great sympathy for, as they have a real and very embarrassing problem.
Psychological transgenderism folks I'm supposed to have sympathy for as well, as we're called to lead everyone back to health, no matter if the problem exists in the brain or in any other organ. But they sure do make it hard!

well I guess it’s in the right place to test out it’s decision.
The good news is that Bradley’s cellmates will not discriminate. Bradley will be treated as a women on daily basis.
Doesn’t one need to take a psychological exam before entering the military?
Or a mentally ill gumdrop. (My grandmother’s term for stupid people).
Yeah... how about no. The freak is a HE
He’s going to need a bath tub to s^%$ in before it’s over... and he deserves it!
Don Imus had a great time with this on his radio show yesterday. He suggested (very seriously) that maybe Chelsea Bradley could donate “her” schmekel to Chaz Bono. LOL.
This story is more proof that the great mass of liberal intelligentsia (sort of an oxymoron) is the largest collection of imbeciles and escaped lunatics in the known world.
Listen up, don't care what you call yoself, Bradley, Chelsea, whadevuh.
Here you da punk-a**-b***h! Got dat?
There is a term for persons with a penis who claim to be female, and that word is: Liar.
We let you take the word "gay" and look what you did with it. Then you disingenuously try to redefine the word "marriage."
And now you want our pronouns?
Tune: "Chelsea Morning"
Woke up, and I was Chelsea Manning
And the first thing that I said
Was I wanted to be female
And wear wigs upon my head
If you think you'd like to buy me bras
And wrap them up, I take A-cup
Oh, don't you guess
I'll put on a dress
And I'll wear a bunch of make-up
Woke up, and I was Chelsea Manning
And the first thing that I saw
Was a thirty-five-year sentence
And no rainbow on the wall
All those big strong men to welcome me
Criminals can be so hardened
O, won't you please
I'm on my knees
Give this little girl a pardon
Now the cell door opens on my new friends for the day
And the hall is filled, they form a line
And two'd be fine
But look, there's nine
Whistles to blow today
Woke up, and I was Chelsea Manning
And the first thing that I know
That I now realize I'm lesbian
I should go where women go
And I don't like this place that I'm in
So stick me with some hormones
Oh, let me stay
Where I'll be okay
And we'll talk in diff'rent pronouns
When the cell door closes
And the rainbows all recede
I will tell you secrets
Hear me speak
The stuff you seek
Is what I'll leak
The only thing I need
Pretty badly, I'm not
Bradley, now I'm Chelsea Manning
