Cynthia Nixon tries to clear it all up: ‘The technically precise term for my orientation is bisexual.’

C_nixonCynthia Nixon is someone I really admire as an actress and who I appreciate as an activist for her eloquent defense of marriage equality.

But she got herself into a bit of mess when instead of simply saying she is bisexual, Nixon said that for her being gay is a choice.

She has released a statement to The Advocate in which she clarifies it all. It seems sufficiently clear so that we can all move on with our lives and continue to appreciate the artistry of this very fine actress who is currently on Broadway in Wit.

‘While I don’t often use the word, the technically precise term for my orientation is bisexual,’ Nixon said in a statement to The Advocate. ‘I believe bisexuality is not a choice, it is a fact. What I have ‘chosen’ is to be in a gay relationship.’

I’ve written more about this over at Gay Star News so hop on over there to read the rest!

(All comments are reviewed before being published, and I review submissions several times per day.)

2 Remarks

  1. Cat’s out of the bag now. Her comments will haunt the community for years because of the fringe right. I’m sure it wasn’t ill intentioned, but it really, really, wasn’t a smart thing to say in original form.

  2. Good for her for finally realizing she wasn’t communicating what she really meant. Oddly, many are still clinging to her earlier (poorly worded) statement, for reasons I cannot understand.
