So Cynthia Nixon is doubling down on her ‘I choose to be gay’ line, and she’s hitting a fair amount of backlash. Big surprise there, but check out how she phrases it: “ 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.” Sing it!
It’s always awkward to talk about this stuff, we all know someone who being gay wasn’t a choice for. My first boyfriend C. always made it look natural. But for me, it was definitely something I struggled with, and something I probably could have gone either way on. If this blog had readers, someone in the comments would take this opportunity to point out that means i’m ‘Bi’, which is just annoying. I’m bisexual because I don’t fit into your binary definition of sexuality? Bullshit. I’m gay. I suck dick not because I was ‘born this way’, but because i’ve been around the block once or twice, and i’ve developed a deep and abiding love for the cock.
(authors note, I originally used the word ‘discovered’ instead of ‘developed’, which kinda undermines my point… shhh)
