Get Out Your Checkbooks, Taxpayers! Bradley Manning Needs For You To Pay For His Gender Switch.
According to this, Bradley Manning, who was just convicted of leaking 700,000 classified important]documents to Wikileaks and sentenced to 35 years in prison, wants you to call him "Chelsea" and pony up for his hormone therapy and ultimate sex reassignment surgery.
Army spokesman George Wright said, "The Army does not provide hormone therapy or sex-reassignment surgery for gender-identity disorder.
Bradley told the Today show that he wants to lead the rest of his life as a woman. He said, "I am Chelsea Manning. I am female. Given the way I feel and have felt since childhood, I want to begin hormone therapy as soon as possible. I also request that, starting today, you refer to me by my new name and use the feminine pronoun. I look forward to receiving letters from supporters and having the opportunity to write back.?
If it's any consolation, Bradley, I'm sure that there will be LOTS of guys in prison who'll be more than happy to make you their personal girlfriend.
Bradley's lawyer said that if the military won't accommodate his client's desire to become a woman, he'd do everything in my power to force them to.
Translation: Taxpayers should not only feed, clothe, and house Bradley Manning for the next 35 years, but they should pony up the dough it's going to take to make him feel more Chelsea-like.
He shouldn't even be in prison in the first place.
Well isn't that an interesting twist. My response is pretty much the same even if I agreed completely with what he did or not. You are in prison...you want a tax payer funded sex change? How about NO.
that reminds me of a story I read in the military paper right before I got out. a CPO had taken leave and had a sex change and his family wanted to sue because he was discharged...LOL
