bradley manning 300(CNN) — Bradley Manning wants to be a woman.

The U.S. Army soldier sentenced this week to 35 years in prison for leaking 750,000 pages of classified documents to the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks said Thursday in a statement read on NBC’s “Today” show that will seek hormone therapy and live as a female named Chelsea.

“As I transition into this next phase of my life, I want everyone to know the real me,” Manning said in the statement. “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. I hope that you will support me in this transition.”

    sounds about right. millions of people need medical care for actual problems they cannot afford and this fag gets a sex change because he feels like a little girl.

    I don't think that someone who is in prison should be allowed to make special requests for his/her future. You are in there as punishment not so you can change your sex!!! Don't get me wrong I am all for doing whatever you wish to do to make yourself happier, but I don't think PRISON is the place to make special requests!!!!

    I work in a prison and unless they have already started treatment before being incarcerated they won't be able to begin that therapy while in prison….well that is in Michigan State Prisons, not sure what they do in a Federal Prison

    Hormone treatment is not necessary. The prison should deny this request and save the tax payers money. Besides I'm sure his new cell mates won't have any issues making him feel like a woman.

    What HELL NO we have honest people dying that cannot get help if he/she wanted the change then he/she can pay for it but remember ho is in prison so he gets no special treatment because he wants to be a woman.He was born a male and if he wants to call himself whatever in prison they dont care as you dont go be name as you are known as a number If this is allowed it will be a travesty to all sick people who live honestly AND BY THE LAW!!!

    Give it too him her whatever he risked being hung for the american people to see the shit our gov does. I think some of the leaks went overboard but let him have it pins in his ankles wants to visit her.

    This is part of an insanity defense so he isn't executed for treason DUH. Why would a so-called woman in a mans body join the army? Welcome to the America of freak culture, everything is ok and everything is accepted as the norm!!!
