You know the libs at the NY Times are patting themselves on the back today over how “progressive” they are.

Via Politico:

Starting tomorrow, the New York Times will begin referring to Bradley Manning as the person “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.”

“Our deputy editor in charge of copy desks has sent out a message to let folks here know we will make the change tomorrow,” Greg Brock, the Times’ senior editor for standards, told POLITICO.

Manning announced last week that he intended to live as a woman named Chelsea Manning. In a statement, he asked that “starting today you refer to me by my new name and use the feminine pronoun.”
