“You can’t wait until kids have grown up to let them know that queer people exist. There’s this idea that that is something that should only be discussed with adults — that is completely wrong.

“They can be whatever you want them to be. There’s no right or wrong answer.”

Speaking of, Ellen and Portia looked perfect together at the Finding Dory premiere, where Portia said that she doesn’t hear Ellen’s Dory voice at home:

“I will be honest, no. That would be very weird. I think I would leave her. That would be the end of our relationship.”

To which Ellen responded:

“She’s not a child. …[She’s not like,] ‘Talk whale to me! Dance for me!’ She doesn’t do any of those things. That would be bad if she said dance and talk whale at the same time.”
