Chelsea Manning, the convicted WikiLeaks leaker previously known as Bradley Manning, is willing to pay for estrogen treatment to promote breast development and female characteristics while incarcerated in an all-male military prison, Manning’s lawyer told the Associated Press.

Manning, who has requested the treatment in the Fort Leavenworth, Kan. military prison, does not want sex-reassignment surgery at this point, said the lawyer, David Combs.

Manning announced she wanted to live as a woman the day after a military jury sentenced her last week to 35 years in prison for leaking  troves of classified material to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks. Combs said she made the statement after the trial so as not to sound insincere.

“People might think it was an effort to get further attention,” he said. “It was Chelsea’s intent to do this all along.”

Fort Leavenworth Army Prison, a spokeswoman said last week, “does not provide hormone therapy or sex-reassignment surgery for gender identity disorder.”

@TIME such lame way to defame Manning and discourage others to lead his path. Hope sensible people do not believe in fake stories.
