Chelsea Manning's bid for transition is a bit of a conundrum for the Army

Inadvertently Chelsea Manning might have started the Army gender revolution.

Some believe Chelsea Manning is a patriot railroaded by the military machine simply for exposing its wilful and joyful slaughter of Innocent civilians.

Some see Chelsea Manning as a Benedict Arnold of the Internet age and believe her sentence fair.

Almost everyone of us in the LGBT community would find it inconceivable to be denied transition for 35 years. I say almost everyone because this is a highly divisive topic and my empathy for Manning's plight has drawn the ire of some of our friends.

Many believe she did the crime now she's got to do the crime. (how many more countries will ask for the Wikileaks papers before she's released?)

Crime or not the ARMY has a moral duty to their prisoners.

Army Regulation AR 501 para 2-27 finds a person unfit to enlist and unfit for duty if the individual has a "Current or history of psychosexual conditions including, but not limited to transsexualism, exhibitionism, transvestism, voyeurism, and other paraphilias".

The Army bases this exclusion on the prognosis by the APA DSM.

The Army considers transexulism as a mental illness and the Army spokesman for Fort Leavenworth stated they have Manning's well being in mind.

But they won't if they don't give her the opportunity to transition.

In fact, as Kristin Beck who called her a traitor pointed out it would be cruel and unusual punishment to deny her the dignity of living in her correct for what could be the rest of her life.

Quite a conundrum, maybe a revolution.

Warrant issued for Dallas transgender woman Armani Nicole Davenport after pumper partier goes into a Coma

Dallas based transgender woman Armani Nicole Davenport a 2013 Ms.Gay finalist really needs to turn herself in now that she is no longer just a 'person of interest'.

* Update Armani Nicole Davenport has turned herself in and is being held on bond

 The Advocate reports that "she is wanted on a count of negligent injuring" according to officer Frank Robertson, a N.O. Police Department spokesman."

The victim was at a friend’s apartment in the 1200 block of S. Salcedo in Zion City, getting silicone injections in her hips and buttocks just after 1 a.m. Oct. 24, said police.
Hours later, her health took a turn for the worse. She was rushed to the University Medical Center in critical condition, and remains in a coma according to WLTV.

A "Pumper Party" isn't really a party at all. You can get a walmart bought injection of silicon on a couch, on a car's hood, or in dirtiest corner of a back alley but the substance that is going into you is the same toxic mixture. Its all in the luck of the draw if your next injection is fatal or not. Transgender females desperate to have a womanly shape have long been risking death just to present. We see this story every so often. It is a crime that needs to stop. If Ms. Davenport is innocent then she has nothing to fear. But if she injected this substance and the victim dies she might have the rest of her life to contemplate her crime.

If you have any information on Davenport’s wherabouts, call Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111 or the New Orleans Police Department at 504-658-6060.
