Another announcement from Bradley Manning
Bradley Manning was on the TODAY show this morning to announce “I want to live as a woman.” Anna Staver at the Statesman Journal said, “Anyone else feel like this Bradley Manning wanting to live as a woman story caught them off guard?”
Brian Stelter wrote this headline for the New York Times: After Sentencing, Manning Says, ‘I Am Female’. Catherine Rampell there said, “Bradley Manning says in statement that ‘I am female,’ and wants to begin living his life as a woman.” Renee Chenault-Fattah with NBC 10 Philadelphia added, “Military says they aren’t in business of doing this.” Andrew Hampp from Billboard added, “Woke up it was a Chelsea Manning and the first thing that I heard....”
The Guardian also had the story: 'I am Chelsea Manning,' says jailed soldier formerly known as Bradley. Toby Harnden with The Times wrote: “‘Manning says she plans to undergo hormone therapy...wishes to be referred to by female pronouns.’ Guardian obliges.” Katie Rogers with the Guardian tweeted this quote from the story: "The army does not provide hormone therapy or sex-reassignment surgery for gender identity disorder."
