Manning says she is a woman, wants to transition

Bradley Manning, who was convicted recently of leaking classified information while serving in the Army, said in a statement this week that she identifies as a woman and wants to go by the name Chelsea Manning. "As I transition into this next phase of my life, I want everyone to know the real me," Manning said, noting that she will seek hormone therapy while in prison. Manning previously discussed her gender identity in a 2010 e-mail to her superior, and an Army psychologist testified that Manning experienced gender dysphoria and personality disorders. After the announcement, a U.S. Army represented stated that the military does not provide hormone therapy or sex-reassignment surgery.
