Letter: Manning’s hormone treatments on taxpayers’ dime
August 26, 2013, 05:00 AM Letter

Editor,

Bradley Manning’s lawyers, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), the Human Rights Commission and other advocates for the LGBT community are going to be very disappointed that despite their best legal efforts, Manning will never get hormone treatments on the taxpayers’ dime while incarcerated for treason (“Manning wants to live as a woman named Chelsea” in the Aug. 23 edition of the Daily Journal). I believe “chutzpa” would be the proper word for the sure to fail attempts and legal coercion. I am really surprised that some of my friends in the LGBT community honestly think that this will fly with the broader public. I guess when you are insulated from diverse public opinion and surround yourself with sycophants it must seem like there is majority support. Wait until the polls come out on this issue and the nonexistent legal avenues become apparent. It’ll be a shock when they find out that there’s a better chance of Liberace headlining next year’s Outside Lands Festival than Manning getting his hormone treatments on the public dime. Don’t shoot the messenger.
