    PFC Manning looks kinda like Tintin in that drawing of the defense team, sitting next to Bull from Night Court

    Wait, is this part of the taxidermy post?

    Why are we still using the name “Bradley” for this soldier? It’s quite clear from what we know that she prefers Breeana and female pronouns, and I think it’s only fair that the press refers to her as such.

    • “From what we know” meaning from confidential communications or from verified public statements to that effect? Manning’s own defense team still seems to be using “Bradley.” We should certainly respect Private Manning’s wishes, but that also means waiting until he/she makes those wishes clear.

       Bradley isn’t out until he is out. He will be Bradley until he tells the press otherwise.

    These are not sketches…. they look pretty overworked (look at all that charcoal on those military suits… look at that wood texture).
    They look pretty cool BTW… if they were made by a 8 year old kid!

    Dear Boing Boing,

    I’m asking you from the bottom of my queer queer heart to at least address, publicly, how you’re going to handle Private Manning’s gender identity in your coverage. I’m honestly confused and a little hurt because I’ve always thought of Boing Boing as an inherently safe space for LGBTQ folks.

    Yours queerly,
    A Concerned Reader

    I never realized he was a (former) thalidomide baby until I saw that first drawing.
