Ellen DeGeneres responded with humor on Wednesday to a Christian Post contributor who alleged that gay celebrities like her are guilty of pushing a “gay agenda” on America’s youth.

In Wednesday’s monologue on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” Ms. DeGeneres addressed an op-ed written by conservative author and pastor Larry Tomczak.

In the article, Mr. Tomczak accuses the daytime talk show host of celebrating “her lesbianism and ‘marriage’ in between appearances of guests like Taylor Swift to attract young girls.”

Emphasizing that she took issue with the use of quotes around the word “marriage,” Ms. DeGeneres argued: “First of all, let’s just break this down, I’m not ‘married,’ I’m married, that’s all,” Yahoo reported.

“My only agenda Larry, the only way I’m trying to influence people, is to be more kind and compassionate with one another,” she said. “That is the message I’m sending out. I don’t have an agenda, I’m not here to brainwash anyone.”

Grabbing a spinning vortex and holding it up to the camera, Ms. DeGeneres continued, “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.”

“Now look into my vortex and dance with me,” she concluded before busting a move with her audience, as is tradition on the show.
