By Ian Thompson, for the ACLU
From the post:
Since she was first taken into custody in 2010, Chelsea, a transgender woman who is being forced to serve out her sentence in an all-male prison, has been subjected to long stretches of solitary confinement — including for attempting suicide — and denied necessary medical treatment related to her gender dysphoria. The Army even opposed her request to use her legal name and to be referred to by female pronouns. The U.S. government has vigorously and repeatedly opposed Chelsea’s efforts to be treated with basic dignity, and the ACLU is still fighting on Chelsea’s behalf in court so that she can follow the hair length and hair grooming standards that all other female military prisoners are subjected to.
