Caitlyn Jenner Accepted Her ESPY Courage Award

The big news at the ESPYs last night was Caitlyn Jenner accepting the Arthur Ashe Courage Award.  She was introduced by U.S. Women’s Soccer star Abby Wambach. And although some of Caitlyn’s speech was personal, like when she thanked her mom, her kids, and Diane Sawyer, she spent a lot of time speaking on behalf of young people coming to terms with their sexual identity. She said, quote, “I can see how people are driven to [suicide], because you don’t want to deal with life anymore.  I came to a revelation:  Out of all the things that I’ve done in my life, maybe this is my calling.  To take my struggle and throw it out in front of the world, maybe I can bring understanding on this subject.  It’s time I try to do my best.” She added, quote, “If you wanna call me names, make jokes, doubt my intentions, go ahead.  Because the reality is, I can take it.  But for the thousands of kids out there coming to terms with being true to who they are, they shouldn’t have to take it.” Get more here.
