Jenner accepted the Arthur Ashe Courage Award
at the ESPYs Wednesday night with an emotional speech, thanking friends and family and advocating for the trans community.
"I know I'm clear with my responsibility going forward: To tell my story the right way, for me. To keep learning. To do whatever I can to reshape the landscape of how trans issues are viewed, how trans people are treated," she said. "And then, more broadly, to promote a very simple idea. Accepting people for who they are. Accepting people's differences."
"If you want to call me names, make jokes, doubt my intentions, go ahead because the reality is, I can take it," Jenner concluded. "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."
