Cynthia Nixon: Bisexuality is Not A Choice - It's A Fact

Cynthia Nixon has clarified remarks she made about sexuality being a choice.

The 45-year-old actress, who is sporting a shaved head for her role in Wit, recently was quoted in the New York Times as saying that for her, being gay is a choice.

“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,” Cynthia said in a statement to The Advocate.

“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,” she added.
