The Times will begin immediately to call the former Bradley Manning by her preferred name – Chelsea Manning.
‘Private Manning’ on later references, and ‘she’ for the pronoun.”
As I wrote last week, this is a circumstance that has little if any precedent ... Over the weekend, the executive editor Jill Abramson, appearing at the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association event in Boston, said The Times would go in this direction.

My opinion: until his male member is lopped off he's a guy, period.
He’ll still be male until he replaces his Y chromosomes.
If someone wanted to be called Master of the Universe would the New York Times comply?
And a lifetime convicted felon at that. Damn, we’re screwed.
I prefer to be called “The Wise and Fearsome King of the Universe VanShuyten.”
Now, if I can only get in a NY Times article...
Nope, it’s ‘delusional freakshow Manning’
I mean, we all know that woman are paid less than men for the same work and all.
Why is the “sex change” of former military service member Manning being tolerated or supported in any way? Part of the punishment of this creature should be to remain imprisoned in the body of what is considered to be the “wrong” gender.
Apparently that is a more effective prison than the reinforced concrete and alloy steel bars of the physical jail cell.
Or even more evil - what if, after somehow finagling the resources to carry out the “transgender” mutilation on this creature’s body, the outcome is not at all what was expected? Is there a probability that the “reversal” will then be authorized?
To what end?
The NYT is P I N K O
It’s really a picture of Tanya Harding he is using, right?
Who says “Wishing will not make it so”?
No more insanity for me, please. I’ve had quite enough.
Even then IT will just be a mutilated male.
his chromosomes claim that he’s a man regardless of any surgical or hormonal alterations.
Still wondering if Manning is a freak or a brilliant tactician.
This could all be a ruse to become a folk-hero on the left, this setting himself up for a pardon from barky.
Manning was stripped of all military rank, pay, allowances, and benefits by the court martial judge’s decision. He will NOT receive a pension. But if you are talking about some level of prisoner pay for what he will be doing as ‘hard labor,’ then you sarcasm might be correct.
It’s too bad Manning’s last name isn’t “Clinton.” That would cause all sorts of NYT hilarity as they try to be PC but not say anything bad about the heir apparent to one of their gods.
What’s his new middle initial? I’ll bet it’s C for Clinton.
Chelsea C. Manning, Esqirette.
However there are no laws or rules surrounding it, so I as a free citizen am allowed to call MISTER Manning anything I damned well please, his perverted preference notwithstanding. In keeping with that philosophy, he is BRADLEY HARDLY A. MANNING to me, and will be until I decide otherwise.
