Wait, did Harvard just assume Chelsea Manning’s gender?
Ha ha ha.
I can't believe they named her a "fellow"https://t.co/FTUEeRYYGE

Former CIA Acting Director Michael Morell was so disgusted with Harvard’s decision that he resigned as a senior fellow … Manning wasn’t overly sad to hear of his resignation.

From Fox News:
Former CIA Acting Director Michael Morell on Thursday announced his resignation as a senior fellow at Harvard after the university named U.S. Army soldier-turned-convicted felon Chelsea Manning a visiting fellow.
Manning will take on the role at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, the school said on its website.
“She speaks on the social, technological and economic ramifications of Artificial Intelligence,” the Harvard announcement said. “As a trans woman, she advocates for queer and transgender rights as @xychelsea on Twitter.”
Called her a fellow?! OH NO THEY DI’INT.
doesn't get much more transphobic than that.

He should have gone to MIT instead. Although, the mechanics there would have been confused talking about changing tranny fluid.

Proof that if you work hard, stay true to yourself & commit espionage against the US Gov't good things can happen to you.
