US military opens door to gender treatment for Manning

In this undated US Army file photo, Army Private Bradley Manning is seen in wig and make-upThe Pentagon is looking at transferring convicted leaker Private Chelsea Manning to a civilian prison so she can get hormonal treatment for her gender identity disorder, officials said Wednesday. Manning, found guilty of sending secret documents to WikiLeaks, is serving out a 35-year sentence and has asked the military to receive hormone replacement therapy to enable her to live as a woman. Faced with an unprecedented request, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has approved plans to allow military inmates to be transferred to federal prisons where they can receive treatment for the condition, officials said. Hagel instructed the Army to “evaluate potential treatment options for inmates diagnosed with gender dysphoria,” Pentagon spokesman Colonel Steven Warren told AFP.
