Cynthia Nixon makes controversial statements about homosexuality, bisexuality
Cynthia Nixon has been garnering some attention lately following some controversial statements she made about her homosexuality.
CBS News reports that Nixon found herself in hot water when she stated in an interview with New York Times Magazine, “For me, it is a choice. 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.”
“Why can’t it be a choice? Why is that any less legitimate?” Nixon continued. “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.”
In an interview with the Daily Beast, Nixon identified herself as a bisexual, but said that she doesn’t refer to herself as one “because nobody likes the bisexuals. Everybody likes to dump on the bisexuals.”
“I just don’t like to pull out that word,” Nixon explained. “But I do completely feel that when I was in relationships with men, I was in love and in lust with those men. And then I met Christine and I fell in love and lust with her. I am completely the same person and I was not walking around in some kind of fog. I just responded to the people in front of me the way I truly felt.”
