During an appearance on The Howard Stern Show, Ellen DeGeneres discussed her recent interview with Caitlyn Jenner.

In the interview, DeGeneres questioned Jenner's conservative leanings, pointing out that many Republicans “would vote against all the issues that you as a woman and you as a trans person would want someone to support.”

Jenner, a Republican, admitted that when “this whole gay marriage issue came up, at first I was not for it. I'm a traditionalist.”

“You know, 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 to I don't ever want to stand in front of anybody's happiness. That's not my job,” Jenner told DeGeneres, who married actress Portia de Rossi in 2008.

“If that word, marriage, is really, really that important to you I can go with it, you know.”

“So, you're still kinda a little not on board with it?” DeGeneres asked.

“No, I'm on board,” Jenner responded. “Yeah, I'm okay with that.”

DeGeneres told Howard Stern that Jenner's stance left her confused.

“She still has a judgment about gay marriage,” DeGeneres said. “And 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. She said if the word marriage is that important and I was like, 'It is, because that's the word.'”

“Well, here's a person on TV crying that, 'Hey I wanna be myself. I want to be genuine. I don't want people to ridicule me.' And then says in he same breath, 'Gay marriage, I don't get it.' It's remarkable,” Stern said.
