Bradley Manning, AKA “Chelsea,” is dealing with horrible trauma. Not only is he being held in prison for leaking highly classified information to Wikileaks, he’s being forced to cut his … hair.
That’s what Mr. Manning would like to look like. Well, from the neck up anyway.
He recently petitioned the court to be allowed to let his hair grow from the mandated buzz cut he’s being forced to endure while in prison. They said, “Hahahahahahahahahaha … hahahahahahahahahah … No.”
‘I felt gross – like Frankenstein’s monster wandering around the countryside avoiding angry mobs with torches and pitch forks.’
‘I wanted to cry myself to sleep on the concrete floor, then I started to think really dark thoughts. You know, “emo”-goth stuff, like “black isn’t dark enough of a color for me.”‘
Needless to say, the ACLU is taking up his case and refiling a motion before the court.
The Army may not have enough money to pay our active duty soldiers, but they’re taking good care of poor Bradley.
The military prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, began giving Manning hormone therapy in February, but officials there have refused to allow her to wear her hair longer than 2 inches. The military has cited ‘safety and security risks’ for the decision.
The Army didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment on the filing.
I’m guessing the Army didn’t respond because Barack hasn’t told them what to say yet. But he will. After all, he’s created a transgender-friendly Army.
