That is what Bradley Manning wanted to be called when he decided he was a female with the wrong plumbing. Now, he will seek gender reassignment surgery and call himself Chelsea.
“As I transition into this next phase of my life, I want everyone to know the real me,” Manning said in the statement. “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.”
Manning’s lawyer, David Coombs, told “Today” that he hopes officials at Fort Leavenworth military prison will provide his client the hormone therapy.
So not only will this piece of festering detritus probably get out after 7-8 years after he violated his oath, gave hundreds of thousands of classified documents to Julian Assmange, exposed and consequently endangered assets and other innocent people who committed the horrid “transgression” of cooperating with coalition forces in Afghanistan, released a long list of critical infrastructure sites belonging to the US and our allies and exposed special special forces operations, but now the US taxpayers should pay for his hormone therapy so he can feel all warm and fuzzy about his gender.
Look, I couldn’t give less of a flying rat’s ass if this shitbag goes out and pays for his own gender reassignment. If he thinks he’s a woman, whatever. Let him be a a woman. But not at my expense, and not at the expense of the very people whom he betrayed. I don’t want to do is pay for this traitorous criminal’s optional treatment. Hell, it’s bad enough my tax dollars pay for his room and board for the next several years!
This is what we call “adding insult to injury.”
Plus, he makes one hell of a hideous chick.
