You may recall that I wrote last week about Sex & the City star Cynthia Nixon claiming she “chose” to be gay. At the time I responded that it’s not really possible to choose who you’re attracted to. Do some guys prefer brunettes because they choose to find brunettes attractive? No. Do straight men and women prefer opposite gender partners because they choose to be attracted to those partners? No. You may choose whether to act on those attractions, absolutely, but I’ve never heard of anyone who chooses the kind of man or woman they’re attracted to. Anyway, AP is covering this now, as has the Daily Beast. I’ve got more over at AMERICAblog Gay, including why this matters.
