    Good afternoon from the Left Coast Polgara.

    President Obama already signed his Obama Civil Security Corps into law. Obama said it will be larger than the U.S. military.

    Why would "Big Sis" (Janet Napolitano, Sec. of DHS) purchase 1.6 billions rounds of small arms ammunition ? That's more ammunition than needed to put three rounds in the heads of every man, woman and child in America.

    What's Obama up to ?

    Honestly he's just playing the "attention card"- I say give him solitary confinement, water and bread, and call it a day..

    **** solitary. let him take his chances in general pop.

    However, he could have gotten this surgery had he not BROKEN THE FRIKKIN LAW as well. Sorry, but when you break the law, you get a lot of your freedoms taken away.
    Gotta agree with you being a transexual myself the last thing I ever wanted to do was break the law. I support what she is doing! However, she did break the law and wether I agree with her doing it or not the law is the law. I think if this was that important to her she would have done her military stint and started her transition afterwards.

    Here's my question, and I guess it's a legal one at its heart. If Bradley Manning is pre-op, then correctly--in court documents and medical records--isn't it incorrect to refer to him as "Chelsea"/she?

    Legally your are correct unless she changes her name. However, depending on what state she does this in she will have to show that she is committed to the life changes. Her birth certificate can be changed in some states. Right now it is a respect thing from the media. Wether or not anyone else follows that is their choice. Now it is correct to refer to her as Chelsea and use female pronouns as a matter of respect.

    I am just curious.

    If Bradley Manning said he wanted to be a dog, would you refer to him as a dog out of respect.

    He is as much a dog as a woman.

    This man has taken no steps other than a few words to change his sexual identity, so referring to him as Chelsea or she is premature at best.
