Chelsea Manning’s Fight For Medical Treatment

     A year after declaring on The Today Show that she was a woman and wanted to begin treatment for her gender dysphoria “as soon as possible”, Chelsea is still waiting for adequate medical care.  Over the course of the last year, the military has ignored multiple pleas by Chelsea regarding her medical care.  The military has even ignored its own mental health experts who have confirmed the gender dysphoria diagnosis and recommended immediate medical treatment.

“Unfortunately, despite silence, and then lip-service, the military has not yet provided me with any such treatment,” Manning wrote in a statement sent to NBC from Fort Leavenworth prison in Kansas. “However, prisons – and especially military prisons – reinforce and impose strong gender norms – making gender the most fundamental aspect of institutional life.”
