With the recent prosecution of Manning, there is a very major detail that is being swept under the rug (in regards to respecting her). She is not Bradley Manning, or even B.Manning. She is Chelsea Manning, and she is a woman. She made this announcement years before, even stating that her biggest fear was seeing her name and face in papers, seeing herself living as the man she was not. On August 22, she made this announcement once again, with her plans to transition. However, news media is lagging behind.
