As I transition into this next phase of my life, I want everyone to know the real me. 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. 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).
When I told my wife this morning that Bradley had decided to become a woman, she said, "Weren't they going to take care of that for him in prison?"
On a serious note, why is this guy/girl going to prison while the NSA grossly and blatantly violates the Constitution daily with complete impunity?
