Sex in The City star Cynthia Nixon clarified claims she previously made about sexuality and choice. The actress is under scrutiny for remarking that she chose to engage in a homosexual relationship with her current partner.
According to ABC, “[the actress] recently told the New York Times Magazine, ‘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.’”
These comments upset the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. Extreme Right Conservatives have often hypothesized that homosexuality is a choice. Apparently, this belief is based in the fact that Conservatives fight their own homosexual tendencies ever yday.
But the Gay community has long maintained that sexuality isn’t a choice. People are born gay. They cannot choose who they are attracted to anymore than they can control their skin color. But never mind what this says about Michael Jackson; let’s hear Cynthia Nixon’s take on the issue:
“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.”
Unless you’re currently enrolled in a liberal arts college, odds are you aren’t up-to-date on your gender/sexuality studies. To clarify: A heterosexual is an individual attracted to the opposite sex. A homosexual is an individual attracted to the same sex. A bisexual is an individual attracted to both sexes. And a Transexual is an individual who identifies as another sex and who lives in Key West, Florida.
And then there is also the Queer Theory psychological hypothesis of Pan-sexuality. Pan-Sexuality, or Omni-Sexuality, maintains that sexuality is determined on an individual basis. In other words, every individual bases his/her sexuality on the sexual prospects of other individuals within the same environment.
Get it? Of course not. You didn’t study Liberal Arts, dumb-ass. Basically, all Ms. Nixon is saying is that she’s just trying to get laid. And since men base their sexual attraction on appearance, women are her only hope.
