The rise of the gender-neutral generation
In politics transgender issues have been brought to the fore with Bradley Manning, the soldier convicted of leaking classified documents to WikiLeaks in 2013, and now serving a 35-year prison sentence. After being sentenced, Manning announced that she is transgender and would prefer to be referred to as Chelsea Manning. In February this year, in a groundbreaking decision, the US Army approved hormone therapy for Manning’s transition to a woman, after Manning sued the federal government for access to the treatment. The army’s own doctors diagnosed Manning with gender dysphoria: the condition of feeling one’s emotional and psychological identity as male or female to be opposite to one’s biological sex.
