A Choice to be Gay??

Firstly, a bit of a gay rights roundup as this is currently a very hot topic.

Cynthia Nixon Angers Many

Oh dear. Sex & the City star has annoyed many gay people but stating that it is a 'choice' to be gay.  This is a line of defence that many anti-gay people use, and now one of our own is using it, I'm sure you can see why she's ruffled a few feathers  for the equality fight. She stated " I understand that for many people it’s not, but for me it’s a choice.” (Read article here)

I'm sorry... but have you seen her girlfriend??*





Anyways, what are your thoughts on this? Many are angered as the majority of gay people (us included) believe you are born this way & it cannot be 'chosen'. 

Some have put forward that she is bisexual and not gay. Perhaps a valid point, she could therefore 'choose' to be in a gay relationship for the rest of her life. But this does not mean being gay is a choice.

“It’s not a “choice,” unless you consider my opting to date a guy with brown hair versus a guy with blonde hair a “choice.” It’s only a choice among flavours I already like. If you’re bisexual, you’re not gay, so please don’t tell people that gay people can “choose” their sexual orientation.” - gay blogger John Aravosis

Perez Hilton has echoed many by blogging:

“We totally hear her out and true, we cannot define her “gayness,” but it wasn’t a choice for us. We were BORN gay. And millions of gay people around the world feel the same way.”

Oh dear Cynthia... What HAVE you done?

Now that's out of the way, onto more exciting times.
