Starting tomorrow, The New York Times and The Associated Press will refer to Bradley Manning as Chelsea Manning, "formerly know as Pfc. Bradley Manning," honoring the former soldier's request to be addressed as a female. Thereafter Manning will be referred to as "she."
The AP, Reuters, The Wall Street Journal, and The Washington Post on Thursday referred to Manning with a male pronoun throughout stories about her announcement Thursday morning that she wished to be identified as a woman and had wished to be called Chelsea, not Bradley.
Yesterday, after Private Chelsea Manning came out publicly as a transgender woman, many media outlets failed to refer to her accurately with the correct name and pronouns. GLAAD assembled resources for the media to improve their coverage, yet still, some outlets are claiming that the issue of how to refer to Manning is unclear. This is simply not the case.
