Cynthia Nixon Round 3: Fiiiiine, I’m Bisexual
A newly bald Cynthia Nixon continues to play damage control with the LGBT community after two interviews last week in which she first said that being gay was a choice for her, and then later that nobody likes bisexuals.
Let’s see if she can finally clear this whole mess up in a third interview, shall we?
“While I don’t often use the word, the technically precise term for my orientation is bisexual. I believe bisexuality is not a choice, it is a fact. What I have ‘chosen’ is to be in a gay relationship.
“As I said in the Times and will say again here, I do, however, believe that most members of our community — as well as the majority of heterosexuals — cannot and do not choose the gender of the persons with whom they seek to have intimate relationships because, unlike me, they are only attracted to one sex.
“Our community is not a monolith, thank goodness, any more than America itself is. I look forward to and will continue to work toward the day when America recognizes all of us as full and equal citizens.”
And there you have it. Cynthia Nixon identifies as bisexual, and never meant to imply that sexuality was a choice for everyone, even though that’s exactly what she did.
There’s an argument to be made that Nixon’s coming out as a bisexual was only made possible by invoking the wrath of the entire LGBT community first. You know, since nobody likes the bisexuals. Zing!
