Cynthia Nixon pissed a bunch of gay rights groups off when she said that she chose to be gay. From Radar Online:
Cynthia Nixon is ruffling more than a few feathers in the LGBT community with her recent comments about her sexual preference. The 45-year-old Sex and the City star, who is engaged to her longtime partner, Christine Marinoni, opened up to the New York Times about how she chooses to be gay — a viewpoint that goes against the grain of belief for many within the gay community. “I gave a speech recently, an empowerment speech to a gay audience, and it included the line ‘I’ve been straight and I’ve been gay, and gay is better.’ And they tried to get me to change it, because they said it implies that homosexuality can be a choice. And for me, it is a choice,” she said. “I understand that for many people it’s not, but for me it’s a choice, and you don’t get to define my gayness for me. A certain section of our community is very concerned that it not be seen as a choice, because if it’s a choice, then we could opt out. I say it doesn’t matter if we flew here or we swam here, it matters that we are here and we are one group and let us stop trying to make a litmus test for who is considered gay and who is not. “Why can’t it be a choice? Why is that any less legitimate? It seems we’re just ceding this point to bigots who are demanding it, and I don’t think that they should define the terms of the debate. I also feel like people think I was walking around in a cloud and didn’t realize I was gay, which I find really offensive. I find it offensive to me, but I also find it offensive to all the men I’ve been out with.”
I’m not sure why everyone cares who everyone else is having sex with. Whatever floats everyone’s boat. But I think Cynthia Nixon might be lying. No one consciously chooses to have sex with Danny Bonaduce’s hormonally imbalanced twin unless they have a 45 to their head. And even then, at least 50% would take their chances just in case it wasn’t loaded.
