Cynthia Nixon is taking some heat because she believes that her sexual orientation is a choice.
In a speech she gave recently to a gay audience, she said "I've been straight and I've been gay, and gay is better." She said she was asked to change the line because it implied homosexuality can be a choice.
Regarding the controversy, she says, "Why can’'t it be a choice? Why is that any less legitimate? 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."
Do you agree with Cynthia that sometimes your sexual orientation can be a choice?
