Letter: Taxpayers happy to foot the bill for Manning
I’m sure I can’t even come close to the pain and suffering Bradley Manning has endured, and I’m not about to try and condemn his choice(s).
I only lend my support that his dream to be what he’s always wanted to be comes true. We all know what dreams are and what they’re made of. How can any of us wish to take that away from any human being who just wants to fit into society with purpose and fulfillment?
Some say taxpayers shouldn’t have to foot the bill for his hormone therapy. What about the taxpayers who are more than willing to help support this guy’s desire and need? I would definitely contribute to a legitimate fund to help finance Chelsea’s quest. I think a lot of other nonconformists would be willing to do the same.
