CONVICTED TRANSGENDER TRAITOR DEMANDS TAX DOLLARS PAY FOR HIS OPERATION
Lifesite's Wesley Smith says :
Convicted soldier Bradley Manning has announced his real self is as a woman named Chelsea. Ok.
More: His lawyer says this isn't a private issue, but a public one. He has insisted that the U.S. government provide for Manning's "transition" as he does his prison time in Leavenworth. Well, that opened my eyes without having to drink my morning coffee.
More: His lawyer apparently plans to sue to make sure we pay for it. From the CNN story:
Manning's lawyer, David Coombs, told "Today" that he hopes officials at Fort Leavenworth military prison will provide his client the hormone therapy. "I'm hoping Fort Leavenworth would do the right thing and provide that," Coombs said. "If Fort Leavenworth does not, then I am going to do everything in my power to make sure that they are forced to do so.
..................Transsexual rights, if that is the proper term, is moving forward. California just enacted a law requiring public schools to allow children to use bathrooms and locker rooms of the opposite sex when they identify with that sex. In other words, one no longer requires a legal ruling reassigning sex. The DOJ took the same position in a lawsuit that was filed by parents upset that a school did not allow their son to use the girl's bathroom. The case settled in favor of the parents.
