In a recent appearance on Ellen, Caitlyn Jenner discussed her ambiguous, conservative views on same-sex marriage, causing many of her supporters (including DeGeneres) to feel more-than-a-little taken aback. "I kind of liked tradition, and it’s always been a man and a woman," she said. "And I’m thinking, 'I don’t quite get it.' But as time has gone on, I think 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."
On Monday, Caitlyn took to her blog to reflect on the the rapid series of changes in her life. In the post, entitled "What I've Learned," she said that one of these changes includes her evolved perspective on same-sex marriage:
I want to help each of you understand something that I only recently embraced: Being different is okay – in fact, it’s great! But I also understand it takes some getting used to. 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.
Caitlyn added that she still wants to "continue to grow as a person." "In so many ways I feel like I’m a teenage girl discovering herself!" she wrote. "I’m still trying to figure out what it means to be a woman and I will continue that process. Because you know what? It’s a lot of fun!"
