Ellen DeGeneres Calls Out Caitlyn Jenner for Her Opinion on Gay Marriage

Caitlyn Jenner recently appeared on The Ellen Show and spoke to host on her opinion of gay marriage. Caitlyn says she is very conservative and also feels strongly about marriage tradition, which means she still has some judgement regarding gay marriage and isn’t completely ‘for’ it. She explained her view while on the show:

“I’m a traditionalist. I’m older than most people in the audience. I kind of like tradition, and it’s always been a man and a woman. I’m thinking, ‘I don’t quite get it.’ But, I think, like a lot of people on this issue, I have really changed my thinking here to, ‘I don’t ever want to stand in front of anybody’s happiness.’ That’s not my job, okay? If that word – ‘marriage’ – is really, really that important to you, I can go with it.”

Ellen later decided to respond to Caitlyn separately while on Howard Stern’s show, explaining that she believes Caitlyn is being too judgemental and even confuses people with her very mixed opinions:

“She still has a judgment about gay marriage. I said, ‘You’re wanting people to understand and accept you, this is like really confusing to people. And you want us to understand, and that you still have a judgment about gay people and marriage.’ And she goes, ‘Well, she said if the word ‘marriage’ is that important … and I was like, ‘It is, because that’s the word.’ Like, we want the same thing.”
