Cynthia nixon dating woman

actress Cynthia Nixon made waves in a recent interview, in which she claims to be openly gay “by choice,” sparking a firestorm of controversy among gay rights activists.

“I gave a speech recently, an empowerment speech to a gay audience, and it included the line ‘I’ve been straight and I’ve 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. 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,” she told the New York Times. It seems we’re just ceding this point to bigots who are demanding it, and I don’t think that they should define the terms of the debate,” she continued.

But maybe if I'd met her at 20, I wouldn't have responded at all. " In 2009, Nixon announced her engagement to the education activist at a rally to support same-sex marriage.

They intend to tie the knot in New York as soon as it becomes legal.

Among the activists shaken by Nixon’s recent comments is Truth Wins Out founder Wayne Besen.

“I think Nixon is using sloppy language to describe her fluidity.

I think she's defining ‘gay’ as a lifestyle, to use the verboten word.

There’s been a trend of successful, once straight (by their accounts) women who have divorced their husbands and found lasting love with another woman.

All of the women here have written or spoken about how their heart landed on the woman they love, and each of their stories is open-minded and took each of them by surprise. When Craig and I sat them down to tell them about Abby I started by saying: “In our family, we live and tell the truth about who we are no matter what, and then love each other through it -- and I’m about to show you how that’s done. And I’m really, deeply happy.” Glennon’s friend and another Oprah Book Club pick, Liz Gilbert, who famously penned “Eat, Pray, Love,” surprised herself when she fell in love with her best female friend.
