Megyn Kelly last night also called this transformation an “act of courage.” The media, of all ilk, are forced to buy in or die.

“On Monday, Time reported that at ESPN’s ESPY Awards, the former world’s greatest male athlete will receive the acclaimed Arthur Ashe Award for coming out as a transgender.”

You’d think it would be for coming out as a conservative, but they never give out awards for that.

Courage would be if he continued to battle his inner demons, and live in conformance with reality.

I truly hope this will be the lowest rated show in the history of ESPYs.

And I hope ESPN goes under. Sick of the lies.

Yep. Got it from a blood transfusion made during a coronary bypass before homosexuals were excluded from donating.

ESPN should honor former wrestling coach and Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert for courageously living out his pedophilia. /sarcasm

“Courage would be if he lived in Iran and changed gender”.

I think you have it figured out. I want to say that before this is all done, Mr. Jenner... with courage considered, remaining comments self censored.
