A dark cloud over little miss Sunshine
I have repeatedly read Cynthia Nixon's "controversial" comments about her sexuality and it's still completely baffling to me that someone seemingly so smart and so articulate doesn't realize what she's saying is not only counterproductive, it's simply incorrect. ACTING ON any sexual desire is -- OF COURSE -- a "choice." Nuns choose not to have sex with anyone. I choose to have sex with men. What is NOT a choice is what causes us to innately have these feelings and desires to begin with, whether they are straight, gay or bisexual (yes, Cynthia, bisexuals are included too). She's either conflating things, is trying to be "her own person" or is just plain stupid. (You're ADMITTING you were born bisexual, yet have some hangup with the term so you're insisting on calling it a choice! Who knew Miranda and Marcus Bachmann were kindred spirits?) But whatever the case, she's really making a fool out of herself and doing all of us a huge disservice, and not for "I'm the victim here" reasons she thinks.
Or try this:
Nixon was BORN bisexual & (currently) CHOOSES to be in a gay relationship. Not the same thing as choosing TO BE gay.
