“I am Chelsea Manning. I am female,” [Bumped]

“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),” he continued in the statement. “I look forward to receiving letters from supporters and having the opportunity to write back.” Bradley Manning: I want to live as a woman  - TODAY.com

[Should be out just in time to serve in Chelsea Clinton's cabinet.]

Your Say

Why was this creature ever allowed access to classified information?

Well, he is going to have ample opportunity to serve as a woman now.

The failure to hang this creature (we can agree that he is not a man) is a mark of our moral decadence.

Jesus Christ on a pogo stick.

Just SHOOT THE LITTLE FUCKER, and shoot him now.

Ahhh, he found a way to have someone else pay for his sex change operation. It took a lot, but it worked.

I am old school, you still have a penis, you are still a guy. Once that is removed you are an it, or an it with an artificial whatever, I really don't care.

HE is playing it well, he is already going for the sympathy card to over shadow his crimes.

I am certainly that I won't need to mention to Private Manning again---ever. Nevertheless, I shall always refer to Private Manning as Private Manning so Private Manning's sex won't be a consideration.

If you need another reason not to use Wikipedia for anything other than entertainment, there he is already listed as "Chelsea Manning" with a note that he is still legally Bradley.

Reminds me of Monty Python's LIfe of Brian:

From now on, I want you all to call me Loretta!


Seriously announcing you want to be treated like a woman before you go to prison might not be the best approach.

Of course if he can manage to PC himself into a woman's prison...

I recommend immediate sphincter adaptation treatments to commence on cellblock #9 at Ft. Leavenworth immediately. Dr. Big Bubba to perform the surgical procedure

Last I heard, Chaz Bono was looking for a penile instrument. Could be a deal here.

Can't help but think of Monty Python's Life of Brian. From now on I want you to call me Lucille!


You have to question the intelligence of anyone about to enter prison demanding to be treated as a woman, though. Unless he can get himself into woman's prison this way... hmm...

Hey DHH, how 'bout Private Manning's privates? Har!

Your defense of the military is 47 years too late. The 58,202 fatalities in Vietnam can't be brought back to life no matter how many mea culpas. Live with it.

Fine & dandy. He'll go in as a tight end and come out a wide receiver.
