Cynthia Nixon of Sex In The City fame (I finally got to see it on E years after its run on HBO; what a loathsome show about some lonely, superficial people) is gay. She said it was a choice a statement that has angered certain people who want to stifle her free speech and dictate how she feels.
First the over-reaction from John Aravosis:
Its not a choice, unless you consider my opting to date a guy with brown hair versus a guy with blonde hair a choice, he writes. Its only a choice among flavors I already like every religious right hatemonger is now going to quote this woman every single time they want to deny us our civil rights.
I really do not know what sort of supernatural powers God gave John Aravosis to peer into Miss Nixons soul.
So what did she say?
From the New York Times:
I gave a speech recently, an empowerment speech to a gay audience, and it included the line Ive been straight and Ive been gay, and gay is better. And they tried to get me to change it, because they said it implies that homosexuality can be a choice. And for me, it is a choice.

She probably made her “choice” after she realized she couldn’t attract any men.
munch that carpet, Cindy!
No one gives a rat's *ss what 'flavor' you like.
I believe that being gay is a choice. At least for women.
She had a husband and children.
The weirdest “choice” she made was to hook up with the World’s ugliest “woman”. But all actors are crazy.
Gays used to routinely refer to it as being a lifestyle CHOICE. That was before they figured out it was an advantage for being gay not be a choice.
She said that FOR HER PERSONALLY, it was a choice. She was very careful NOT to say it was a choice for EVERYONE.
Stupid reactions by the ultra-PC crowd. If she had said “I just KNOW that it’s ALSO a choice for EVERYONE ELSE,” then I could at least see some basis for snarking at her. But she was only speaking for herself.
Isn't that a law in physics? Nasties attract Nasties....
Thing is many male homosexuals the look and mannerisms that would lead you to believe it is in the genes but then there are very non effeminate types that confuse the issue
The reason they hate the idea that it is a behavioral choice is that this reality puts the onus (that’s with an o) of their sexual preferences on themselves instead of removing the “blame” to being “born that way”, ie, blaming God.
The unconscious thought process is “if God made me this way, there’s no way He’ll hold me accountable, but if it’s a choice, and I viscerally know that it’s wrong, I know I will be judged for my choices.”
Dating a lesbian that looks like a male is like wanting a hotdog but only getting the bun.
Well whether it is a choice or not Homosexual marriage adoption are wrong PERIOD
The key word there, “had.”
I believe homosexuals are born that way, just like all sinners. We are all born into sin of some type or another but that truth isn't the ticket punch to God's forgivness.
I’d need to see the DNA to figure out what is going on in that photo.
