Ellen DeGeneres may have had it rough in the years leading up to when she came out of the closet, but life never seemed any better when she met her wife, Portia de Rossi. They have come a long way from their chance meeting at VH1's Big in '04 Awards in 2005 to be one of the worlds most talked about gay couples.

The most remarkable part of the post was Ellen’s note. She made it clear that she believed in her ideals and would continue to stand up for them no matter what.

Despite the best efforts of celebrities and high-profile gay people in America, many people find it hard accepting the gay community. Ellen famously had a dicey conversation with Olympian Caitlyn Jenner who made waves with her gender reassignment after being married with children for several years.

A part of the problem was with Caitlyn’s traditional position on heterosexual relationships, especially as she is transgender. In the end, the message of tolerance, no matter sexual orientation is still the most important takeaway.
