And you’re paying for it. Now shut up.
Army officials have informed Chelsea Manning that they will provide her with gender transition surgery, her lawyer tells BuzzFeed News…
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.
If you’re wondering why Manning needs surgery to become a woman if she’s already a woman, that’s only because you’re a transphobic bigot.
As a persyn who f***ing loves science, I can tell you that someone’s gender is whatever the right people have decided it is. If Bradley Manning, or Bruce Jenner, or the Wachowski Brothers, or anybody else breaks free from the chains of biology, it’s incumbent on the rest of us to adjust our pronouns accordingly. And instantly. You don’t want your facts to hurt their feelings, do you?
Womanhood is so precious and special that you can attain it just by saying so.
Aren’t you proud that your tax dollars are funding the removal of this traitor’s penis and testicles? I’d gladly do it for free — tourniquet, hatchet, tree stump, done — but this way is fine too. It’s the least we can do for him/her/it.
