    If you'd like to start a thread in CE to discuss transgender issues in more depth, you're more than welcome. This thread isn't the place for it
    Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.' - Isaac Asimov

    I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said, "... I drank what?"

    That is true. There is nothing that screams less depth and thought than an award show for a group of people who already have the ultimate meritocracy.

    I'd rather watch this than actors/actresses getting awards for MAYBE doing a great movie, one, at that.
    Athletes' struggle, strive, fight for positions, compete and go through ups and downs...most often conquering difficulties of strength, stamina, competing teammates, personal downfalls (health/injuries) and a whole slew of things to overcome. Throughout the whole season at that.

    So.. the Espy Awards acknowledges some that have stood out in their fields...big whoop.

    How many stupid award shows do we REALLY need? Talk about ultimate meritocracy.

    life that which is unnoticed has the most power.
