The list of things you're allowed to complain about is HUGE. Chelsea Manning's gender identity is not on that list.

Pretty much in awe of Chelsea Manning's bravery, on so many fronts. Inspiring.

Bradley Manning is becoming Chelsea Manning. This is real life, not a soap opera.

Good to see Mail Online also using "she" and "her" for Chelsea Manning. Odd the BBC continues calling her "him". And Sky. And the Telegraph.

Everybody be cool, I verified that Bradley/Chelsea Manning does NOT know how this season of #BreakingBad ends.

So Bradley Manning is actually Chelsea Manning. So no longer a 'he' but a 'she' Slow down, I can't keep up.

Don't understand all this "confusion" editors have with pronouns all of a sudden. #ChelseaManning asked for 'she.' USE IT. End of confusion.

Chelsea Manning is going to go over well with the inmates. I guess this was the only way he could handle being slammed like a screen door...

Guys, I think Chelsea Manning just became a more famous trans person than Chaz Bono.

Bradley Manning wants to be Chelsea Manning, and I can't think of a decent Wikileaks pun that fits :(
