I don't know how to feel about Chelsea Manning.DyloniusFunk5/14/14 5:16pm554EditPromoteShare to KinjaGo to permalinkI see the main page had another article on Chelsea Manning today. And of course the usual cornucopia of commenters appeared; trans-phobia bigots, people who think she's a traitor but don't care that she's trans, people who think anyone who calls her a traitor is a trans-phobia bigot, and of course the fringe element who say fuck anyone in the military, you're all war criminals. Frankly I'm just curious to get other's takes because I don't know where I stand on this caseAdvertisementFirst off, I'm going to make it clear right now I am not a trans-phob. I will confess I don't personally know any trans-gender people, but even if I did it would not bother me. Now there are a lot of posts on the main page that are from bigots, especially the moron calling her condition a disorder and that she was crazy for wanting to cut off her penis. That dude is a fucking waste of oxygeon. So just to get that clear, if you're main issue with Manning is that she is a trans-gender woman, I have no place for you.Now that being said, I do believe she is a traitor and that people should be able to express that without accusations from transphobia being flung their way.
