FOREWORD FROM SIP & SIP:

cynthia nixon's character in "sex and the city" is unforgettable...

She’s the low-key, but fascinating woman in SEX AND THE CITY Tv series during the late 90’s, wherein she portrayed the character of “Miranda Hobbes”.  I will never forget her. She’s a great actress. And I so admire her strength, her casualness, her unique ways…

Miss Cynthia Nixon.

She’s no hypocrite. She’s a woman. And a bisexual.

IT’S A BRAVE, NEW WORLD TO ALL OF US.

ANOTHER JOURNEY.

ANOTHER ‘LIFE’.

STAY WITH US, FRIENDS.

Cynthia Nixon: Being Bisexual “Is Not a Choice”

Actress Cynthia Nixon is bisexual and that “is not a choice,” she said in an exclusive statement toThe Advocate.

The former star of Sex and the City who is now on Broadway in Wit has been the focus of heated discussion among the LGBT community because of a comment she made to The New York TimesMagazine earlier this month.

“For me, it is a choice,” she had said of being in a relationship with Christine Marinoni, who she has a child with and plans to marry. In a follow-up interview with The Daily Beast, she revealed that gay Episcopal bishop Gene Robinson will be marrying the couple.

It was while talking to the Beast that Nixon, who was in a relationship with a man for 15 years and had two children, said she’s bisexual. And she admitted being leery of identifying by any label, especially that one. “Everybody likes to dump on the bisexuals,” she told the Beast.

Outrage spread online that Nixon might be saying being gay is not genetic, followed by discussions of whether it even matters. Now Nixon is clarifying her words in a carefully thought-out statement, with the hope that finally what she intended to say comes through.

Read the complete statement below.

“My recent comments in The New York Times were about me and my personal story of being gay. I believe we all have different ways we came to the gay community and we can’t and shouldn’t be pigeon-holed into one cultural narrative which can be uninclusive and disempowering. However, to the extent that anyone wishes to interpret my words in a strictly legal context I would like to clarify:

“While I don’t often use the word, the technically precise term for my orientation is bisexual. I believe bisexuality is not a choice, it is a fact. What I have ‘chosen’ is to be in a gay relationship.

“As I said in the Times and will say again here, I do, however, believe that most members of our community — as well as the majority of heterosexuals — cannot and do not choose the gender of the persons with whom they seek to have intimate relationships because, unlike me, they are only attracted to one sex.

“Our community is not a monolith, thank goodness, any more than America itself is. I look forward to and will continue to work toward the day when America recognizes all of us as full and equal citizens.”

BRIEF BIOGRAPHY OF CYNTHIA NIXON (Taken from WIKIPEDIA.COM):

Nixon was born in New York, New York, the daughter of Anne Knoll, an actress from Chicago, and Walter E. Nixon, a Texas-born radio journalist. She graduated from Hunter College High School, and attended Barnard College.During her college years she also studied abroad with Semester at Sea in the spring of 1986.

From 1988 to 2003, Nixon was in a relationship with English professor Danny Mozes. They have two children together. Since 2004, Nixon has been in a relationship with education activist Christine Marinoni. She remarked in 2007: “In terms of sexual orientation I don’t really feel I’ve changed… I’d been with men all my life, and I’d never fallen in love with a woman. But when I did, it didn’t seem so strange. I’m just a woman in love with another woman.” On May 17, 2009, at a rally in support of same-sex marriage, Nixon announced that she and Marinoni had become engaged the month before. Marinoni gave birth to their son, Max Ellington Nixon-Marinoni, in 2011.

In October 2006, Nixon was diagnosed with breast cancer during a routine mammogram.She initially decided not to go public with her illness because of the stigma involved, but in April 2008 she announced her battle with the disease in an interview with Good Morning America.Since then, Nixon has become a breast cancer activist. She convinced the head of NBC to air her breast cancer special in a prime time program,and became an Ambassador for Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

Brad Pitt: ‘I don’t care if my child is gay’

with kind courtesy from OUTRAGE MAGAZINE’s link:

Hollywood star Brad Pitt has said that he doesn’t care if any of his children are gay, saying: “I hope I teach my kids to be who they really are”.

In an interview with Parade magazine, Pitt, 45, said having a gay child wouldn’t bother him “one bit”.

“Would it bother me if a child of mine turns out to be gay? No, not one bit. I want my kids to live the lives they want to live. I want them to be fulfilled. I hope I teach my kids to be who they really are,” he said.

Pitt, who has six children with partner Angelina Jolie, including three who were adopted, also defended the couple’s decision not to get married, saying they won’t do it until “it’s legal for everyone else”.

“When someone asked me why Angie and I don’t get married, I replied, ‘Maybe we’ll get married when it’s legal for everyone else.”

He continued: “I stand by that, although I took a lot of flak for saying it – hate mail from religious groups.”

“I believe everyone should have the same rights,” he continued. “They say gay marriage ruins families and hurts kids. Well, I’ve had the privilege of seeing my gay friends being parents and watching their kids grow up in a loving environment”.

The actor said that his views stem from his position that all people should have equality.

In September 2008, the star made a $100,000 (£54,840) donation to the campaign against Proposition 8, which banned gay marriage in California.
