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???
