Chelsea Manning Is Suing the Military Prison He's In, Saying the Regulation Two-Inch-Length Haircut Makes Him "Feel Like a Freak and a Weirdo"

Yes that's what I was thinking, I was thinking it was the hair.

Manning, who was born as a man named Bradley, claims she has identified as a woman since childhood and had been receiving access to hormone therapy, speech therapy and cosmetics while in prison.

But the military ruled that the former U.S. Army intelligence analyst must continue to cut her hair to 'military standards.'

In a blog post from prison, Manning wrote that when she heard the news she was devastated, and felt like giving up.

'After five years -- and more -- of fighting for survival, I had to fight even more. I was out of energy.


'I felt sick. I felt sad. I felt gross -- like Frankenstein's monster wandering around the countryside avoiding angry mobs with torches and pitch forks.

'I cried, and cried, sniffled a little bit, and then cried some more.'

Manning said that after feeling 'devastated, humiliated, hurt, and rejected' she finally found the strength to fight again.

I imagine Manning is petitioning to return to this, his non-freak-and-non-weirdo look:

Here's a question: Let's say you stumbled into a strange room full of mist, and at the center of that room were three huge computer keys, CTRL, ALT, and DLT, carved out of enormous black rubies, and you knew that by pushing them you'd reboot the earth.

Now here's the question: After pushing the buttons, would the Cleveland Browns be any good? Or would they transform into a pack of platypuses or something?
