Caitlyn Jenner Changes View On Gay Marriage: ‘Everyone’ Should Wed The ‘Person They Love’
Does Caitlyn Jenner finally support gay marriage? After sounding like she was against the idea on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show,’ Cait took to her blog to say that everyone should be able to marry the ‘person they love.’
Many fans questioned whether Caitlyn Jenner, 65, was really in favor of gay marriage after an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Sept. 8. Ellen actually called Caitlyn out and said, “It’s funny cause you’re still kind of a little not on board with it,” after the I Am Cait star offered her tepid support for gay people being allowed to marry. Now, the former Olympic gold medal winner has taken to her blog to clarify her thoughts on the subject.
“Like many people, there was a time when I didn’t realize how important it is for gay couples to have the right to get married. But after hearing from my gay friends and learning more about the hardships they faced because of discrimination, it became clear to me that everyone should be able to marry the person they love,” she wrote one her website CaitlynJenner.com. We love that Caitlyn made such a strong statement.
“She still has a judgment about gay marriage,” DeGeneres told Stern. “And I said, ‘You’re wanting people to understand and accept you…and you still have a judgment about gay people and marriage.’ “
