(CBS SF) — Apple’s personal assistant Siri doesn’t always get it right, and sometimes she can be downright mean (just ask “what’s zero divided by zero”), but this time Siri is being applauded by transgender advocates for standing by Caitlyn Jenner.I have the utmost respect for Caitlyn Jenner and I am a strong supporter of equality and the rights of trans people everywhere,” Berg wrote on Instagram. “I also believe that we don’t give enough attention to our courageous returning war veterans, many of whom have sacrificed their bodies and mental health for our country and our principals – principals that include the freedom to live the life you want to live without persecution or abuse.” The image, created by Main Stream Media Boycotts, shows a photo of a pre-transition Jenner juxtaposed with Gregory D.The Olympic champion turned transgender icon accepted the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPYs on Wednesday wearing a custom Versace gown that hugged her feminine new figure.

Gadson, an Army veteran and double amputee who appeared in Berg’s 2012 film Battleship. “One man traded 2 legs for the freedom of the other to trade 2 balls for 2 boobs. Jenner, 65, tapped Angeline Jolie’s stylist Jennifer Rade to pick the perfect look for her first red carpet event and her stunning ensemble beared a striking resemblance to a dress worn by Mrs. Not only did she use the platform to keep the spotlight on transgender issues that came with her coming out in June, she also took on her critics and those who didn’t think she should be honored. Guess which man made the cover of Vanity Fair, was praised for his courage by President Obama and is to be honored with the ‘Arthur Ashe Courage Award’ by ESPN?” reads the photo. “Yup,” Berg added in the accompanying caption. Pitt at the 2010 premiere of her film “The Tourist.” Luckily, Her elegant white wrap dress with long sleeves won rave reviews. “She nailed it,” said Tom Fitzgerald, cofounder of the Tom + Lorenzo fashion and lifestyle blog. “It was absolutely the best look she’s presented us with so far.

It makes a statement of quiet confidence.” Gretta Monahan, celebrity stylist of “Brides Gone Styled” on TLC agreed. “OK, Caitlyn Jenner can add style icon to her resume,” she said. “She is officially the First Lady of Style after the ESPYs, flawlessly delivering the total package from head to toe.” The Italian fashion house was also flattered to be chosen. “Congratulations to the beautiful @Caitlyn_Jenner! As a group, as athletes, how you conduct your lives, what you say, what you do, is absorbed and observed by millions of people, especially young people. That’s not a bad thing; that’s a good thing.” Berg, who directed the military-themed films Lone Survivor and The Kingdom, is currently filming Deepwater Horizon with Mark Wahlberg in the leading role. Fitzgerald credited the look for projecting both Jenner’s femininity and strength at once. “She needed to look heroic and ladylike, and she managed to do both at the same time.” “The criss-cross drop waist works magic to whittle Jenner’s waist and create a consistent, beautiful curve at the hips and from the derrier side view,” she said. “The long fitted sleeve showed off her long and lean arms, delivering an occasion-appropriate elegance that few A-list icons with much more experience have managed to deliver.“ Celebrity stylist Phillip Bloch was struck by her color choice. “White was a specific choice. 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.

And Jenner turned Manhattan into her own personal Caitwalk last month after hitting the town in several form-fitting, runway-ready wrap dresses and cocktail gowns from designers including Diane von Furstenberg and Patricia Field. And next, the fashion police — please be kind on me, I’m new at this.” “Well the real truth is that, before a just a few weeks ago… few months ago I had never met anybody else who was trans, who was like me. I know the people in this room have respect for hard work, for training, for going through something difficult to achieve the outcome that you desire. Now, as you just saw, I dealt with my situation on my own in private and that turned this journey into an already incredible education.” “It’s been eye-opening, inspiring, but also frightening.

They’re learning that they’re different and they are trying to figure out how to handle that, on top of every other problem that a teenager has.” “They’re getting bullied, they’re getting beaten up, they’re getting murdered and they’re committing suicide. The numbers that you just heard before are staggering but they are the reality of what it is like to be trans today.” “Just last month, the body of 17-year-old Mercedes Williamson, a transgender young woman of color was found in a field in Mississippi stabbed to death. Every time something like this happens, people wonder, “Could it have been different, if spotlighting this issue with more attention could have changed the way things happen?” We’ll never know.” “If there is one thing I do know about my life, it is the power of the spotlight.

The winner reflects “the spirit of Arthur Ashe” by “possessing strength in the face of adversity, courage in the face of peril and the willingness to stand up for their beliefs no matter what the cost.” Now, here’s the best part: “The award is inspired by the life that Ashe lived, using his fame and stature to advocate for human rights, although, at the time, those positions may have been unpopular and were often controversial.” And from that respect comes a more compassionate community, a more empathetic society, and a better world for all of us.” “There have been so who have traveled this road before me.

I also want to acknowledge all the young trans athletes who are out there — given the chance to play sports as who they really are.” “And now, as of this week, it appears trans people will soon be serving in the military. But for the thousands of kids out there who are coming to terms with being true to who they are, they shouldn’t have to take it.” “So for the people out there wondering what this is all about — whether it’s about courage or controversy or publicity — well, I’ll tell you what it’s all about.
