Response to Neue Regel (Reply #39)

44. Yeah

I agree with many previous posters that Ms. Nixon sounds more like she is bisexual (closer to the middle of the Kinsey scale) rather than gay (closer to that end of the Kinsey scale), which does seem to give one some degree of "choice" and flexibility in terms of romantic/sexual partners and behavior at any given time but most people simply don't understand enough about human sexuality and all of its nuances to fully understand what she is saying/suggesting by her comments. Most people are probably going to zero in on the "choice" aspect of her comments and come away thinking maybe it really is a *choice*.

Of course, it's quite possible that this could wind up being one of those "teachable" moments too. .
