This guy is just trying to make everyone think he's crazier than he already is. And I agree with everyone else that we the tax payers should not pay for this he can wait till he gets out if prison.

This is yet ANOTHER problem that America has. The court system has backed this nonsense! He should be in a cell 23 hours a day and not even think about hormone therapy and sex change operations.

I really really really really hope that the taxpayer doesn't get stuck paying for this nonsense. We pay for enough nonsense already. This guy is going to begin serving his PUNISHMENT for what he did and he cannot be "rewarded". This is just utterly ridiculous. The sad part is that he will probably get it...

Hey Brad, god made you a man not a girl. Chemically and surgically altering your body still won't change that fact.

Grant PFC Manning a pardon and let him get on with life. PFC Manning was given a dishonorable discharge. Its time to move on.
