Bradley Manning brings up an interesting gender identity issue for convicted criminals.
Just this morning (Thursday, August 22, 2013), former United States soldier Bradley Manning announced her female identity and her desire to live as a woman named Chelsea despite being currently imprisoned, and sentenced to 35 years, for leaking the largest set of classified documents ever to the public.
