I still call him Bradley Manning, though he has legally changed his name. And I still call him a “him.” As far as I can tell, it is an assault on women to pretend that a man even knows what he is talking about when he claims he “feels like” a woman, or that he is “really” a woman. I also find it bizarre that he had to change his name. Are you telling me that he can have a female gender but that his name, “Bradley,” has a fixed gender that can’t be changed? If Bradley can claim to be a woman then why can’t he claim that Bradley is a woman’s name? The bad news reported yesterday is that our military is going to support the transgender delusion. According to BBC:
Defence secretary Chuck Hagel has approved gender treatment for Pte First Class Manning, who was formerly known as Bradley.
The move came after the bureau of prisons rejected the Army’s request to transfer her from a military facility.
She is serving a 35-year sentence for leaking classified files to Wikileaks.
Pte Manning has been diagnosed by military doctors with gender dysphoria, the sense of one’s gender being at odds with the sex assigned at birth.
Following her conviction in July 2013 on 20 charges in connection with the leaks of military and diplomatic documents, Pte Manning requested treatment including hormone therapy, and to be allowed to live as a woman.
Unlike some conservatives, I think Bradley’s actions were those of a patriot. He could be a hero. Instead he has decided to give in to self-loathing and begin self-mutilation procedures. Even though no one in the media will admit it, by publicly associating his case with transgender, Manning has brought shame upon himself. I am sure no one at the Pentagon is sorry that a whistleblower is publicly associated with transgender. He has hurt his cause. Just to review, in case anyone has doubts or needs to argue with Liberals, transgender is an insane belief that is without warrant. It is premised on the idea that it is wrong to identify babies as boys or girls. Reputable medical professionals deny that it is right to do “sex-reassignment” surgery. Finally, admitting such “women” into a woman’s prison can lead to a really bad situation.
