Chelsea Manning to Seek Senate Seat

Recommended Posts

VickySGV

It is too early for me to even try to evaluate this one, but I know it will produce smoke, flames and heat before it resolves itself.  I have already seen enough in other places that scares me for many reasons.  I am going to stay out of the political / character / justice angle of this, but my moderator hard hat is on to see where this goes. .

I doubt this will go too far but it is indeed worth watching.

Can I get a Charlie Brown, "good grief"?  Does she do anything besides concoct ways to draw the spotlight onto herself each day?  I'm putting her in my Caitlyn Jenner box.

I have very mixed feelings about this. She'll be attacked from every direction - not that she's not used to this - but she'll be one more trans woman stepping into the political spotlight. I do question her motives though and sure hope she doesn't follow her loss (polls show she's waaaaaay behind) with a talk show. As Charlie would say, Good grief :)

Good Grief!!!! Totally agree Denim and Lace. She needs to be thankful for her commuted sentence and go live a nice life OUT of the spotlight.

 

The transgender community needs positive role models not Chelsea Manning.

I do not know who her opponents will be, but I do not understand what her qualifications for Senator might be, other than being famous/notorious.  Those are not qualifications, they are reasons for doubt.  Let her run for, and be elected to, a local office and see how she does.  Let her gain some experience, and prove that she is more than just a provocateur, before trying her hand at national politics.  Danica Roem is a great example of that approach.

The public already has a preconceived idea of what Chelsea is all about. So her move into the political arena is already over  even if she doesn't realize it. There is getting to be more and more from the Trans community entering into the local political arena's  that are much more qualified to move into the national political field. People that have built reputations of understanding all the issues that we face as a nation. All that people like Chelsea and for that matter Caitlyn have done is be an embarrassment  to the transgender world because of their actions or by not understanding how their political stances effect  both them and us. Make me want to :banghead:!

 

Huggsss!!

Thanks for writing this :) I've been following her in the media for years, and I think she's kinda cute. But that's besides the point. And she does have a rather remarkable story.

 

I saw her first campaign ad on youtube yesterday, and it was dreadful. Very amateurish. It looked like it could've have been done by high schoolers. I sure hope she gets some help in this area.

Well we have a president who was nothing but famous/notorious so now everyone thinks they can join in.

 

Good grief, indeed!

I think Kristin Beck is 100% correct. She doesn't have a snowball's chance in a volcano. It's a publicity stunt.

not only she doesn't have a chance but she will face major backlash. For a lot of people she's a traitor...  and a transgender woman... I mean that's a lot to ask.

I agree. It's a publicity stunt. A stunt I fear will do more harm than good to the transgender community.

      I am in the "let it go" category on this one, while this is not best thing to hear as you are picking up your script, it does not surprise me in the least (it's Iowa), if you are transitioning there are all kinds of scenarios where the dead name or gender maker from the past come back to haunt you, this sounds just like such a scenario. The legal name change / gender marker change, makes a difference in many of these instances (not always), and can really help you. If you are presenting female in the world, have a female sounding or neutral name, have a "F" on your documents and a lot of this simply vaporizes.... In the mean time one must put up shields to protect one's emotions...   Best to you   Cyndi -

      Great reaction!  My grandkids had a similar reaction except one of them (the younger) is a bit of an imp and spent his time enjoying a game of trying to remove my wig.  Itch.......  Gotta love him.   Hugs.   Charlize

      There is absolutely no reason to drop a skirt in the bathroom.  The only issue i've found is with a long full skirt that can be an armful while sitting.  I will never forget the first time i saw a woman squat in a field using her spreading skirts as a privacy screen.  I suddenly understood another important thing about skirts. As to men's attraction.......first of all don't lift your skirt.......sorry i couldn't resist a giggle.  I wear a wedding ring and while someone may be interested he knows that i'm not.  I don't try to attract men but obviously it is an ego booster when i'm found attractive by someone who forgot his glasses.   Hugs,   Charlize

      Hi Jani         Thanks, the words " be yourself" mean so much to me. Thank you.

      This does not surprise me in the least, and I would probably just let it go. When I was working in healthcare (although addmittedly not working with drugs), it was part of my job as I saw it, to be observant just in case a mistake has been made somewhere. I can imagine being in a similar position, with a confusion in combination of drugs with gender without realising background. The problem here, as I see it, would be the conversation being in the open with possible eavesdroppers (I think over here pharmacists are covered by medical confidentiality as are other health professionals, although not being one I don't fully know. They do have a responsibility to check what they are doing, and essentially flag up dangerous situations).   Tracy
    • tracy_j
      From my experience / opinion:   When I am wearing a skirt I usually lift it. Obviously the rear is the main issue, and I generally use a sort of scooping action to lift things out the way. This way, I can use a similar action with dresses which obviously would be impractical to pull down. One thing to remember is that women grow up from little girls. Little girls mostly wear short skirts / dresses so likely learn by lifting rather than lowering. I don't really know though, but as you are in private, it really does not matter.   I have less experience with dating, as I am not alone either, but when the occasion arises I love to flirt. Your relationships are really a matter for you, your wife  and your conscience. That said I would urge you to be very careful as guys are often out for just a quick lay. It is easy to get attention (even I have had that), but they can often take advantage, satisfy their urges and then realise and get nasty or at the least indifferent. Such men may well play the field and be risky healthwise in other ways too. As a woman, you need to think like a woman but be even more careful as some men are very transphobic. They may not realise that you are trans. When they do they will likely get very embarrased and get nasty.   I always put moisturiser on my legs after shaving (and at other times too). Personally I like matt legs so don't look for shine.   Tracy

      Oh goodness me, I agree with everyone here, that is definitely a breach of patient confidentiality as well as simply bad manners !   Hugs,   Jackie 
    • ChelseaAnn
      Also, I forgot. What is the best way to make my legs appear shinier? I shaved just tonight, but should i put lotion on so they look nicer?

      So, I hope this is in the right section. I occasionally get to go out as Chelsea when my wife gives me some time. I have gone out many times and had lots of success in passing, but I'm still learning some things. Disclaimer, some of these questions sound stupid in my head.   First, if you are wearing a skirt, long or short, what is the proper way to use the bathroom? Do you lift the skirt up or pull it down like pants? Or can you lift loose skirts but pull down those that are right?   Second. In the past, when I've gone out, a friend told me I attracted some male attention. (It made me feel good to hear that.) My question is, because I'm married, is it wrong to try and attract it? Like, not really flirting but actively trying to get the attention that cis girls get from guys?
