Thoughtworthy: Caitlyn Jenner and the ESPYs

If you have been following the news in the United States, you have probably heard about how Caitlyn Jenner was recently given an award from ESPN for her courage in coming out to the world as being a transwoman. You might have also heard of some of the nasty comments that some people have made about the choice to honor Caitlyn rather than someone who “has more courage” or “did something more brave”. I have to say that those comments are extremely ignorant. Coming out to the world after being in the spotlight for multiple decades is not easy. If you have seen the interview of Jenner by Diane Sawyer, you would know about the struggles that she (Jenner) has faced with her identity. She has now finally come to terms with it, and she is being open and sharing her story to give this often unheard community a voice. I understand that it takes a lot of courage to serve in the military or do whatever it is that people believe should have been the basis for that award. However, giving the award to Caitlyn Jenner has not only honored her, but I believe that it will have a huge impact on the lives of people, especially young people, who might be struggling with their identity in anyway.
