Chelsea (Bradley) Manning (USA)


A military prison psychologist has refused to recommend Chelsea (Bradley) Manning’s “gender be changed to female” in the Army’s Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System, complicating Manning’s pending lawsuit.  The ACLU filed a lawsuit “against Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel and other Department of Defense (DOD) and Department of the Army officials for their failure to provide necessary medical treatment for her gender dysphoria” on behalf of Manning in 2014.  Currently, Manning is “seeking a court order allowing her to wear her hair longer than 2 inches, the maximum length prison standards allow for men.”
