Manning is busted for treason and now gets a free sex change surgery. This really puts a whole new spin on the Army’s slogan, “Be all that you can be.”
Army officials today informed Chelsea Manning that they will provide her with gender transition surgery, her lawyer tells BuzzFeed News.
A lawyer for Manning, the ACLU’s Chase Strangio, spoke with Manning on Tuesday after she was informed of the military’s decision. Manning, serving a 35-year prison sentence for violating the Espionage Act, received a recommendation from her psychologist in April that she receive surgery related to her gender dysphoria.
“I am unendingly relieved that the military is finally doing the right thing. I applaud them for that. This is all that I wanted – for them to let me be me,” Manning said in a statement provided by her lawyers.
Make it stop. Just make it stop.
