Bradley Manning is Now Chelsea Manning

Bradley Manning  has issued a statement through attorney David Coombs, indicating that Manning would now like to be called Chelsea Manning because he plans to start hormone treatments to transition to a female.

His decision to live as a woman was reported by the “TODAY” show. After thanking supporters who had helped him “keep strong” throughout the court martial, he declared:
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). I look forward to receiving letters from supporters and having the opportunity to write back.


 Army Pfc. Bradley Manning will have access to psychiatric services while serving his prison sentence for his role in the WikiLeaks case, but the Army will not provide hormone therapy or sex-reassignment surgery, a spokesman said Thursday, reports Politico.

It was not immediately clear, however, whether Manning would be allowed to undergo the treatment if it was paid for by other means


  1. Possible he is angling to be housed w/ the ladies?

    Fox getting escort to hen house by the farmer???

    1. I suspect absolutely not unless its for makeup tips or something.

      He may feel better for the change or figured that he would be in charge of his outing but he has damaged his own credibility as now it looks he is some homo freakazoid instead of doing what he did because the US Government was up to its eyeballs in war crimes that it had swept under the carpet. An especially when he'll spending some in a military lock up which aren't noted for their tact and sensitivety.

    2. Yes, because being homosexual means he is a "freakazoid", and being convicted of telling the truth in a supposedly free country means he should be imprisoned and subjected to physical and sexual abuse.

    3. Trans-gender is different than homosexual. It's a heavy burden in our culture. Probably more difficult than anything her captor's put her through.

  2. Who is paying this lawyer? If it's the Manning family they should fire him. If it's the military, he deserves a raise.
