Default Caitlyn Jenner to be Honored with the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at The 2015 ESPYS

ESPN was thinking...."Why should the Nobel Peace Prize be the only award to lose all credibility"?...

Caitlyn Jenner to be Honored with the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at The 2015 ESPYS on ABC July 15

Quote:
Almost 40 years ago, Bruce Jenner’s Olympic success came as a result of strengthening both his mind and body leading to his status as one of the world’s greatest athletes, but the decision to publicly come out as a transgender woman took a different kind of courage and acceptance of one’s self. To celebrate that bravery, ESPN today announced that Jenner will be presented with the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at The 2015 ESPYS Presented by Capital One. Presented annually to individuals whose contributions transcend sports, the Arthur Ashe Courage Award is the pinnacle of the sports celebration, which will be televised Wednesday, July 15, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC from Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE.

Jenner’s unyielding resolve and hard work enabled him to win a gold medal in the 1976 Olympics and break world records. He then parlayed that success into a variety of roles across different areas including television, film, auto racing and business. Although Jenner first captured the attention of the nation for his athletic prowess and determination, the same strength of character shone through this past April when he sat down with ABC’s Diane Sawyer to come out as a transgender woman.

“In the past few months, the overwhelming outpouring of support from all over the world for my journey has been incredible,” said Jenner. “However, being honored with this award, which is named after one of my heroes, is truly special. For the first time this July, I will be able to stand as my true self in front of my peers.”

Added executive producer Maura Mandt: “Bruce has received many accolades over the years for being one of the greatest Olympians of our time but The ESPYS are honored to celebrate Bruce becoming Caitlyn. She has shown the courage to embrace a truth that had been hidden for years, and to embark on a journey that may not only give comfort to those facing similar circumstances, but can also help to educate people on the challenges that the transgender community faces.”
Jenner is going to save a ton of money on the sex change operation....All he has to do is sit back and relax....The media is pulling his pud so hard right now it may come off without the surgery...

In the eyes of liberal misguided weenies, even a loser is a hero, and therefore he is courageous.

Putting Jenner, who was a good athlete in his time, and now is a publicity seeking nut job, in the same class as Ashe, who overcame possibly the greatest odds in sports, and became one of the greatest in his sport, is an insult to Ashe.

I am going to share a comment I got on facebook when I first came out, its from an evangelical friend of mine and while there are a great many things we disagree on I think we all can learn from her words.

Quote:
I always tell people when they attack LGBT....
See them as a human being first, a citizen of this country second and then see them as LGBT. They deserve to be treated as a human being just like you. You don't have to agree with their lifestyle or even 'condone' it.
I let the Holy Spirit guide me and ‘season my words’. Not my sinful flesh. The flesh can be so cruel.
Love you
