Caitlyn Jenner has quickly become an activist for transgender rights, but that doesn’t mean she was immediately onboard with the entire LGBT agenda. Citing her “traditionalist” proclivities, Jenner told Ellen DeGeneres that it took some time to come around to it, but she now supports same-sex marriage.
“At first, I was not for it,” she said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “I thought, I’m a traditionalist. I kind of liked tradition, and it’s always been a man and a woman. And I’m thinking, I don’t quite get it. But as time has gone on, I think, like, a lot of people on this issue have really changed their thinking here. I don’t want to stand in front of anybody’s happiness. That’s not my job. If that word marriage is really, really that important to you, I can go with it.”
Ellen challenged Jenner on her seemingly halfhearted embrace of marriage equality, but Jenner doubled down: “No, I’m onboard,” she said. “It is going to be pretty much the law of the land. I still feel like I’m okay with that, because I don’t want to stand on somebody’s happiness.”
