Yesterday a 35 year sentence was handed down to Bradley Manning for giving classified information from the US government to WikiLeaks. Now, in a strange twist, Manning would like to undergo a sex change while serving his time. 

In a letter provided to the “Today Show”, Manning’s attorney said that Bradley would from now on like to be referred to as Chelsea Manning, and also that the female pronoun be used to describe him/her.

In the written statement provide, Manning stated:

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.

So who would be footing the bill for such a procedure? That would be the military prison in Fort Leavenworth. That would be funded by tax payer dollars.

David Coombs, Manning’s attorney said that is For Leavenworth does not provide the means for Manning to transition to female, he will do everything in his power to make sure that he gets the help he needs.
