Ellen DeGeneres: Confused by Caitlyn Jenner's Stance on Gay Marriage

by at . Comments

Caitlyn Jenner served as the guest on the season premiere of Ellen this week.

During her interview with the host, Caitlyn said she felt fabulous, while giving thanks to the LGBT community and talking about her responsibility as a famous member of it.

But Caitlyn also said the following about gay marriage:

'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, and I'm thinking 'I don't quite get it.'"

It seems like a strange stance for a transgender individual to take, especially one who encourages anyone else in her situation to accept and embrace their true self.

The 65-year old did add she doesn’t “ever want to stand in front of anybody’s happiness,” but her viewpoint still left Ellen confused.

And she admitted as much in a subsequent chat with Howard Stern.

"I said, 'You're wanting people to understand and accept you - this is like, really confusing to people, and you still have a judgment about gay people and marriage,'" DeGeneres told Stern.

"She goes, 'Well, if the word marriage is that important.' It is because that's the word. We want the same thing."

Ellen went on to say the interview was great and that she's trying to understand where Caitlyn is coming from... she just isn't totally there yet.
