Thank goodness that our men(?) and women(?) in uniform no longer need to worry about being identified by their proper gender if they don’t wanna be.
An Army appeals court has ruled that the military may not refer to Private Bradley Manning as a man.
Col. Lorianne M. Campanella, Col. Eric Krauss, and Col. R. Tideman Penland in the United States Army Court of Criminal Appeals ruled that “future formal papers filed before this court and all future orders and decisions issued by this court shall either be neutral, e.g., Private First Class Manning or appellant, or employ a feminine pronoun.”
I’m not sure what the punishment for this crime is supposed to be. If you slip up and call this man “he,” how many potatoes do you have to peel? How many pushups do you have to do? What’s the punishment for believing in science?
Bradley Manning is not a woman, and you can’t make me call him one. If you want to kowtow to the whims of this traitor, go right ahead. Not me.
Brad’s a dude, dude.
Update: What if Manning changes his mind about his gender again? Will the Army add that to the charges against him? Will the service
menpersons he betrayed get in trouble for calling him “her”?
