Now A Lesbian!

This article in the NY Times got me crazy.

I love Cynthia Nixon — after all, I’m a Miranda, head first —  but now she has to be a lesbian, because lots of the Gay And Lesbian world got crazy when she suggested that the sex/gender of someone you partner with might be a choice.

Bisexual?  No.  Queer?  No.

Was heterosexual, now a famous lesbian.

Where is the space for people who are nuanced, whose identity isn’t about some easy binary separation?

Not in the NY Times, or at least not in NY Politics, apparently.
