    He is in prison. He has limited rights.

    Here is a question. If we give him hormone treatments do we transfer him to a woman's prison facility?

    no. He should not be transferred to a women's prison. He is not a woman nor will he ever be. Doesn't matter if he has a cutadicktoffme or not. He can the the prsons ho if he wants but he's not a woman.

    Nope.
    "We were taught under the old ethic that man's business on this earth was to look out for himself. That was the ethic of the jungle; the ethic of the wild beast. Take care of yourself, no matter what may become of your fellow man. Yes, I am my brother's keeper. I am under a moral obligation to him that is inspired, not by any maudlin sentimentality, but by the higher duty I owe to myself."
    - Eugene V. Debs (1855-1926), American labor leader

    The fact that this lawsuit even got this far is distressing.

    Manning within a month of being released...

    Chelsea Manning Tweets About Impending Prison Release
    20 Apr 2017 - With less than a month before her scheduled freedom, Chelsea Manning on Thursday tweeted her thoughts about getting out of prison.
    With less than a month before her scheduled freedom, Chelsea Manning on Thursday tweeted her thoughts about getting out of prison after former President Obama commuted her sentence. "You know you've been in prison for a while, when the prospect of freedom is nerve wracking," she tweeted. Known as Bradley Manning at the time of her 2010 arrest, Manning came out as transgender after being sentenced to 35 years in an all-male military prison and dishonorable discharged for leaking classified military documents and video to WikiLeaks.


    Chelsea Manning, center, attempted suicide for a second time on Oct 4.

    She was convicted in military court of violating the Espionage Act and other offenses and has spent nearly seven years behind bars at Fort Leavenworth in Kansas. President Obama shortened her sentence before he left office earlier this year. Earlier this week, Manning tweeted, "30 more days," with the hashtag "#mondaymotivation."

    Her case pitted LGBT rights activists, who warned about her mental health and treatment as a transgender woman living in a men's prison, against national security hawks who said she did devastating damage to U.S. interests. The former cheered Obama's move, while the latter called it an outrageous act that set a dangerous precedent. Under Army rules, she was barred from growing her hair long while incarcerated, and only after litigation by her legal team was she approved for hormone therapy.

    I didn't realize a prisoner still had to wait for release when a sentence was commuted.
    I have from an early age abjured the use of meat, and the time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look upon the murder of men.

    Probably not but you might try here:
    http://thepoliticalforums.com/forum.php

    I remember a man, in Maryland, as I recall, who killed his wife and children and then tried to kill himself with a shotgun. He flinched and missed. Blew his face off. He was getting out of prison--so much for life without parole--and demanded the state pay over a million dollars for a series of surgeries to make him presentable. He still would be blind, have the eat through a tube in his side, but he could stroll around down and not frighten the horses.
