Cynthia Nixon Speaks Out Yet Again! Says Being Bisexual Isn't A Choice!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayMedia MinuteCynthia NixonLGBT

cynthia nixon speaks out once again

Finally looks like Cynthia MAY have stopped digging herself into that hole!

To recap - last week, Cynthia Nixon revealed that being gay was a "choice" for her, and yeah…we didn't appreciate her choice of words.

Then, Cynthia opened up about her controversial comment, and in doing so she opened up a whole new can of worms by saying that nobody likes the bisexuals.

Now, Cynthia has decided to take another crack at opening up about her controversial comments. Here's what she had to say about them in a newly released statement:

"My recent comments in The New York Times were about me and my personal story of being gay. I believe we all have different ways we came to the gay community and we can't and shouldn't be pigeon-holed into one cultural narrative which can be uninclusive and disempowering. However, to the extent that anyone wishes to interpret my words in a strictly legal context I would like to clarify:"

"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."

This is certainly better than what we've heard from her before, and given the fact that she clearly refuses to FULLY rescind her statement that being gay can be a choice, we'd say it's probably time for her to stop talking about this subject.

What do U think? Do U agree with Cynthia Nixon's latest insights???

    …Keep scramblin those eggs, hon.

    yes i agree with her, get over it perez, she said it was a CHOICE FOR HER. Geez why do you always find stuff to complain about? why should she take back what she said, she has cleary said it was based on her story, so shut up already, why are you such a drama quess. This is a very smart women we are talking about here, and i am sure she does not care what YOU think. I like this site for shits and giggles, but you continue to annoy me with this crap…. you never give up and you are never satisfied…..

  3. 3

    every person has his or her own fucking sex. why is it so different to understand that? we see it all the time. if it was a choice for her, fine. it isn't a choice for other people, fine as well… jeez!

  4. 4

    Yes, Perez, and well all know that her saying being gay was her choice is so world-altering. I mean come on! It is obviously soooo much more important that childred dying of hunger, or war, or the economy… yes Perez, clearly you have your priorities straight. Not!

  5. 5

    it's time for you to stop criticizing her, EL Kreepo! you're one of most deceiving fake corrupted bribed person in the media! get yourselfa a fucking big dildo and go have fun with it in a cave somewhere!!!

  6. 6

    You are stupid Perez… She said she was bi and chose to be with a woman. What is wrong with that?
    P.S. I'm not gay and don't care who anyone chooses to have sex with !

  7. 7

    Any normal person with half a brain assumed at the time that when she said "gay was a choice" it was in reference to her bi-sexuality in which case being in a gay relationship IS A CHOICE. You're either very simple on an intellectual level, unable to grasp concepts that aren't black or white or, you're deliberately causing shit and being as bully. Either way, you're an idiot.

  8. 8

    she caved to the pressure! you have to be politically correct or you will be punished…

  9. 9

    Freaking writers always judging everybody and thinking they know what's true and better… she's a BISEXUAL so she has to decide with whom she wants to have a relationship IDIOTS!!!

    I like how the majority of gay related posts bring out commenters who AREN'T even gay in the first place to complain. Seems a bit odd, don't you think? A bunch of closeted gays for sure. How else would they be so sure it's a choice?

  11. 11

    Re: zooby – You just wish they were all gay, maybe you'll get to that 10% the gays are always quoting yet.

  12. 12

    She needs to stop talking. Sorry I misinterpret her the first time.

  13. 13

    Cynthia Sez:

    "Bisexuality is NOT a choice! YOU WILL DO it; NOW!"

  14. 14

    for how mad you are at Perez…..you find time to read and COMMENT? geesh.

    Again, people of small mindedness. You think this isn't a big deal?

    Yeah, and I'm the president of the moon.

    People like Michele Bachmann would take this and run with it, saying "SEE. THEY ARE MAKING A CHOICE!!!"

    That would create a huge problem for all GAY PEOPLE. So, shut up. Come out of the closet, and don't hate on people.

  15. 15

    I don't think Cynthia Nixon meant to offend anyone. Being in a relationship is a choice; who you are attracted to in the relationship (gender-wise) is not, and I think maybe she didn't clarify enough the first time. I don't think it's really fair to blast her for it. She admitted she didn't explain the situation correctly, and fixed the mistake. If she's still taking the heat from it and wants to smooth things over, so be it.

    Re: Jennifer Braunschweiger – Love it!!
    For those that don't know - at one point (before he found Gaga) Perez said that he didn't believe that there was such a thing as a 'bisexual man' - the whole 'they're all just closeted gays' thing…
    And as far as this whole 'choice' argument goes why do the bigots get to frame the discussion?? Who the f*ck cares if it's a choice, hormones in the water, genes, or a witche's spell - if people want to love each other without hurting anyone (anymore than the usual cruelties of romantic love) - what's the problem exactly?!

  17. 17

    Oh God, its like Carrie Prejean all over again. Only this time, you are biting your tongue until it bleeds to stop yourself from going off on Cynthia the way you did Carrie. I know you want to Perez…..I know you want to BAD! If only you hadn't promised to be nice…….

    And you know what, you are so stupid. You have this woman, who is standing up and proudly telling the world she is gay and she doesn't give a shit what anybody thinks……and you are picking apart what she says and RUINING it!

    I completely support Cynthia and hope she kicks you in the balls if she ever runs into you, because you are a FAR bigger problem for the gay community than she will ever be.

  18. 18

    justifying gay rights on the grounds that you are BORN GAY is like the pope justifying marriage on the grounds that only heterosexual people can procreate. and what is wrong with saying that nobody likes bisexuals? did anyone shoot people who said nazis hated jews?

  19. 19

    Re: fennek17 – I'm sure this is why Perez is still single ; )

  20. 20

    She should clearly stop talking??? Shame on you. I find her thoughtful and insightful. Disagreement on the nuances of a point is one thing, a call to stop talking is ridiculous.

  21. 21

    i simply don't understand how you have become the arbiter of every comment relating to sexuality…
    please just stfu already…we no longer care what u think.

  22. 22

    Perez, you're being so close minded and you can't even see it.
    If SHE says being gay was a CHOICE for HER then that's how it is. She wasn't speaking on behalf of the whole gay community. Some people (predominately women) do infact CHOOSE. Now I know there is overwhelming evidence supporting the fact that it is not a choice (which I completely agree with, being a gay man) I'm hardly going to discredit someone for saying that it was a choice for them. Everyone is different.

  23. 23

    Perez, do you wander around in life being carried away by your emotions??? Cause, seriously, that's the most unstable life-philosophy there is. What she is saying is that while she didn't choose to be bi, she most definitely chose to be with the men and women she chose to be in her life. Which is reasonable. And mature, cause it tells me she's taking responsibility for all her decisions. Qualities that I hope one day you'll get, Perez

  24. 24

    And P.S. Perez, she's allowed to say whatever she wants to say.

  25. 25

    why is retard perez over analyzing this ????? let ig go !!! she is what she is, its her life and her happiness…

  26. 26

    Perez, she can SAY and DO whatever she wants, right? You say a shit ton of stupid crap every single day….

  27. 27

    it's a choice for her. So what. get over it. stop bullying her

  28. 28

    Re: zooby – it's because the straight people could think
    straight and could understand it better

  29. 29

    I agree with her completely. I'm bi-sexual. I didn't choose to be bi-sexual, it's just what I am. But I did choose to be straight and enter a loving healthy marriage with the man of my dreams. I am still attracted to both sexes but I CHOSE to be with an heterosexual relationship rather than a homosexual relationship.

    Basically, she says she is bisexual and she chose to be in a gay relationship. What is so wrong with that Perez??… The difference for her is that being 100% gay is not a choice, you are attracted to only one gender. Being bisexual, you are attracted to both but she chose to be with a woman, I can understand what she means.

    Other people's truth isn't always going to align or be recognizeable to you.
