Chelsea Manning for Senate

Recommended Posts

Chelsea Manning, the transgender former Army private who was convicted of passing sensitive government documents to Wikileaks, has filed to run for the U.S. Senate in Maryland, according to federal election filings.

Manning, who did not immediately respond to a request for comment, would be challenging Democrat Ben Cardin, who has served two terms in the Senate and is up for re-election in November. Cardin is Maryland's senior senator and is considered an overwhelming favorite to win a third term.

Manning, 30, who is formerly known as Bradley Manning, was convicted in 2013 of the largest leak of classified documents in U.S. history and was sentenced to 35 years in prison. Last year, then President Obama commuted Manning's sentence to time served and she was released from a military prison in Kansas.

Can its opponent in the primary bring up that it's a traitor? Or is any criticism of a minority or protected group forbidden? And thanks again, fockin Obama.

I'll check back in when/if it gets elected and I'll see exactly what I expect

Thus far most have not defended it now or when pardoned.

But yeah...you know better the thoughts of everyone elses I guess.

Can he even run? Aren't felons prohibited from holding elected office?

Did Obama pardon it or just commute the sentence? If he pardoned, I guess it could. But if it did the crimes when it was a "man" does it count?

Read that he commuted to time served, meaning the record still stands - he just got out earlier. Obama basically fast-forwarded his release date if I understand correctly.

I sincerely believe that every institution whether it be an individual a family a community or a nation, begins its inevitable failure as it loses its shame.

 

Lot of things wrong with this country. But it all stems from a lack of Shame.

 

Somewhere along the line we decided shaming was a bad thing. And therefore shame was a bad thing.

 

Personally, I hope somebody goes Matthew Shepard on this guy.

I'll give FnF credit. Flipped by this morn.

 

I'd guess they said 'he' 60% of the time.

 

Good for them. It's not like their core audience is going to complain.

Please stop calling it a him. TYIA

I use him. I only recognize two genders so I try always use 'him' or 'her' out of respect for the person as well as the English language. I determine 'him' and 'her' by biology rather than their personal opinion. I do use 'it' but only on the transfluid people who I don't know if it is really a male or female. In Chelsea's case, I happen to know that he is male.

XX (female) XY (male). Cannot be changed with surgery or wigs. :dunno:

What about xxy?

Or xy people born with female parts, or xx with male parts.

What about xxy?

 

Biology gave them a raw deal. They really do get to chose to identify gender however they want, live their lives how they want, and can also feel free to use whichever bathroom they want. I doubt anyone here would disagree. The argument isn't about them, instead it's about XX opting to be XY or XY opting to be XX.
