Ellen DeGeneres took a moment during her monologue on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Wednesday to respond to a recent column that bashed the talk show host’s apparent “agenda” to brainwash the world.
DeGeneres spoke for many when she addressed a column published by the Christian Post, accusing Hollywood of pushing a gay agenda. In the article titled, “Are You Aware of the Avalanche of Gay Programming Assaulting Your Home?” pastor and author Larry Tomczak wrote that DeGeneres “celebrates her lesbianism and ‘marriage’ in between appearances of guests like Taylor Swift to attract young girls.”
DeGeneres, who married Scandal actress Portia de Rossi in 2008, used her trademark humor to offset the biting comments by Tomczak.
“First of all, let’s just break this down, I’m not ‘married,’ (as she made the quote marks hand gesture), I’m married. That’s all,” said DeGeneres.
“And Larry, I don’t even know what it means to celebrate my lesbianism. I mean, I guess I do – it’s like that,” she said as she pulled out party popper from her blazer and sett it off. “I’m gay!”
DeGeneres then offered some encouragement to the youth of the world in typical Ellen-fashion.
“The only way I’m trying to influence people is to be more kind and compassionate with one another. That is the message I’m sending out. I don’t have an agenda. I’m not here to brainwash anyone. But…”

Her stage manager then handed her a spinning vortex and she held it up to the camera, saying in a hypnotizying voice, “Listen to the sound of my voice. Attention youth of the world: I want you to live your lives being exactly who you are. Be true to yourself — the most important thing is to be true to yourself. The second most important thing is that you wear Ellen underwear and only Ellen underwear.”
