Convicted Traitor Bradley Manning Wants You to Call Him Chelsea: “I am Chelsea Manning. I am female”

So we assume he wants to serve his 35-year term in the women’s population. Whatever the case, he’s going to be someone’s bitch.

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.”

Manning, 25, was sentenced to 35 years in prison on Wednesday after having been found guilty of 20 charges ranging from espionage to theft for leaking more than 700,000 documents to the WikiLeaks website while working in Iraq in 2010.

“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.”

    “At least use the right pronoun…”, and this is a lion because the zookeeper says so:

    If he has X and Y chromosomes, he is a he, despite what he calls himself, wants to believe he is, or how many hormones he takes.

    I wonder why he didn’t make his preferences public before his trial? That would have gotten him a lot of extra sympathetic press.

    I have no problem with what people do in private, but I don’t discriminate when it comes to people throwing away vital information and betraying their oaths. Cooper from the Washington Blade was right, this man disgraced plenty of people in the military of all kinds who have served honorably.
