Bradley Manning: I Want to Live as a Woman
Well, the story that’s all over the Internets today is that Bradley Manning has decided to become Chelsea Manning.
Bradley Manning, the Army private sentenced to military prison for leaking classified documents, revealed he intends to live out the remainder of his life as a woman.
“I am Chelsea Manning. I am female,” the Army private wrote in a statement read on TODAY Thursday. “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’m posting about it because it looks like people want to discuss it, but honestly it seems pretty irrelevant to the issue of Manning’s crimes.
