Actress Cynthia Nixon recently released a statement to calm the controversy surrounding her comments to The New York Times about her sexual orientation.
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 pigeonholed into one cultural narrative which can be uninclusive and disempowering.
Although the 45-year-old actress may have solved one issue, she may have created another. In her official statement Nixon said:
However...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...
The Wit star backed her claim that bisexuality isn't a choice, but also added that bisexuals get no respect, according to PinkNews.
I don't pull out the 'bisexual' word because nobody likes the bisexuals. Everybody likes to dump on the bisexuals, Nixon told Kevin Sessums of The Daily Beast.
MetroWeekly described the Sex and the City actress as out again as bisexual, but in a gay relationship.
I am completely the same person and I was not walking around in some kind of fog, Nixon told Sessums. I just responded to the people in front of me the way I truly felt.
This isn't the first time Nixon has been questioned about her sexuality. When asked about her relationship by Oprah Winfrey in 2008, the former redhead replied: You haven't met my girlfriend.
