    To be honest, Cynthia Nixon clarifying her comments is a little better. Especially after all the backlash and insults she received from the LGBT community which really, she shouldn’t have gotten. And I was admittedly, disappointed in her comments from before, since I know how the gay community in general gets a lot of flack from bigots. So really with Nixon coming forward with her bisexuality and yet, “choosing” to be in a gay relationship because she happened to fall in love with a woman, makes more sense.
