At this point I can't tell whether or not it is true.

Until I see a video of someone who actually knows Manning, like his lawyer or a family member, confirming the gender switch, I will just think, "Maybe."

Even that picture...why hasn't anyone seen it before? Or have you? I never have.

Still, pictures can be doctored, I don't trust pictures.

There is such a cloud of black around him still. If he can speak to the country enough to say, "Call me Chelsea," I wonder what other proclamations will be allowed? Is Manning going to be issuing political statements also from prison, and will the media still give him a platform? Or is Manning only allowed to say controversial things that will alienate his support base?
