Chelsea Manning to Seek Senate Seat

Recommended Posts

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.

      We hear so much about HRT and surgeries here, but the truth is facial hair removal is by far on the top of my list. If I can ever do one thing about myself physically, it would be that.    Lots of love, Timber Wolf🐾

      LOL!   Lots of love, Timber Wolf🐾

      I'm such a terrible poet that it would be embarrassing. I did write one thing in that forum, but it came closer to being a psalm that a poem. Oh well.   Lots of love, Timber Wolf🐾

      Hi Amy,   I agree with MaryEllen. Your breasts should already be getting sore and I definitely noticed a change in the 4th month. My mom is a C cup and I am a solid B after being on HRT for three years. I am also on Spiro and Estradiol.   Tess

      I have to temper my excitement a bit because what's right for me is not absolutely right for someone else BUT, having MY facial hair removed has been thee absolute best thing I've done throughout my transition!!!  I wish I'd done it before I even knew I'd transition one day.  I wish I'd done it in my early 20's when it would have been easier.  I've spent more out-of-pocket money on laser and electrolysis than any other transition related expense and if I had to choose just one thing to do, facial hair removal is what I'd choose.  It's SUCH a powerful gender cue.  I'm obviously biased but it seems to me like anyone who is AMAB but identifies as anything but male, would thoroughly LOVE not having facial hair.  I wish you the best as you discover and express yourSELF.

      Hello Amy, You should start to see some development within 2-3 months. Perhaps sooner. You may also notice some tenderness too.  It takes a cis girl at least 3 years to achieve full breast growth so you should expect to develop about the same. Nope, they don't burst forth overnight.   The general rule of thumb is that you will end up one cup size smaller than your mother but this isn't etched in stone. Hope this helps.   MaryEllen

      Hello All:   I was just wondering if I can get any average estimate on how long it takes for breast development when on HRT.  I have started taking Spiro and estradiol on January 20th 2018 and just wanted to find out from everyone when they roughly started to develop and when?  I know everyone is different, but a good rough time line would be nice.  I am really hoping for a nice average C cup size.  I know my mother and sister are both C cups and not very big C, but just average.   I am just really looking forward to having real breast instead of always using my breast forms.  On the plus side of things, I have noticed that since I have been on HRT, that I have lost some weight in my mid-section and when stepping on the scale, I am 20 lbs. lighter.   Hope to hear back   Amy

      Me too Bobbi, I’m glad you’re doing well...  It truly is never worth it there’s so much here that we don’t realize until after we’ve given up, as they say hindsight is 2020. After surviving incredible odds after a bad accident and being resuscitated several times I can tell you you would give anything for just one more breath right after you realize what you gave up. I spent nearly 50 days trying to get that one more breath and that was enough for me I can’t imagine having to deal with that again. hugs, Jae
    • jae bear
      Yes, I agree it is a bit painful but for me it helps shed light in a place that hasn’t seen it in a long time. hugs, Jae
    • jae bear
      Ohhhh... Laughed so hard I got a cramp, I’m in the middle of doing laundry and putting away some bras, what irony, oh wait you’re not supposed to Iron a bra... hugs Jae
