Caitlyn Jenner picked up the Arthur Ashe Award for Courage at this year's ESPY Awards. The onetime decathlete gave a thorough, enlightening speech about her own experiences as a transgender woman, some statistics concerning suicide and safety among transgender youth, and advocacy for acceptance.

Considering Jenner admits she only met another transgender person for the first time months ago, it's especially rad that she's seized the opportunity to be a visible advocate for the transgender community. Unfortunately, some folks on Twitter can't quite wrap their heads around the idea that Jenner is "brave" and deserving of a courage-themed trophy. They made themselves known.


Caitlyn isn't suffering from a life-threatening disease, so she must not be brave. Right. 

Caitlyn Jenner can't be brave because there is more than one transgender person. Also, Caitlyn has some money. So there. And what could be a more precise statistical analysis than "People change their genders everyday"?

Calling Caitlyn "brave" is just inarticulate. Let's stick with the more descriptive "whatever."

Did anyone else read this and envision Caitlyn soaring through the ESPYs on roller skates and pulling down a curtain?

Why don't you ask that question to past Arthur Ashe Award recipients like Nelson Mandela and Robin Roberts? The trophy commemorates achievement that "transcends" sport. Being a Wheaties-certified icon of American masculinity who openly accepts her truth as a transgender woman probably qualifies.

You get back to us when you think of one.
