Caitlyn Jenner's Beautiful Award Speech

Caitlyn Jenner hasn't received a sports award for a very long time but I think she would agree that this one may be the most important.  Caitlyn won the ESPY's Author Ashe Courage Award and her speech highlights the struggles she has gone through along with the trans community.  The backlash has been ugly for her but she holds her head high and says:
If you want to 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.
