Cynthia Nixon’s Fiance Is ‘Basically A Short Man With Boobs’

She’s basically a short man with boobs. A lot of what I love about her is her butchness. I’m not saying I fell in love with her in a sexually neutral way. I love her sexuality—it’s a big part of what I love about her—but I feel like it was her. It wasn’t something in me that was waiting to come out. It was like, This person is undeniable. How can I let this person walk by? Christine would probably kill me for saying this, but my daughter said one time that if you really had to break this down, [it looks like] she would be butch and I would be femme…but really once you get to know us it’s really the opposite.

—Cynthia Nixon on her fiance Christine Marinoni, whom Nixon met in 2001 while campaigning on behalf of NYC schoolkids, and has been with for six years [via]

      Strange choice of words to describe your lesbian fiancee, but to each his own. It seems Miss Nixon is saying she didn’t really come out as a lesbian but is attracted to this person as an individual. Hopefully, for her fiancee’s sake this is not just an Anne Heche phase.

      Thank you! I read this and thought “Whoa, that wording sounded like what Anne Heche was saying when she and Ellen first got together” you know, the whole “Oh, It’s not a women thing, it’s an attraction to “Ellen” thing.

      The wording was really odd on that one. Cynthia Nixon has really been a banner carrier for gay marriage etc… so I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt on this, I’m guessing it might just be a holdover from the years in the closet and working in Hollywood. At least I hope so.

      re: heading title. Short man with boobs and no dick. Because, y’know, dudes have dicks. It’s a big difference.

      I don’t think that’s what she’s saying at all, if you read on just a bit you see how she says that her sexuality is a big part of what she loves about her. It’s not just something she puts up with for her. That said, I think they’re adorable together :D

      @j: It’s still a really odd thing to say, and my guess is that with Nixon’s record on these issues, it was one of those things that sounded fine in your head but sounded pretty horrible once they come out of your mouth.

      I’m no butch, but I don’t think I’m out on a limb in saying that butches don’t really want to be described as “men with boobs”. If they wanted to be described as men, they wouldn’t be lesbian. They’d be trans. I understand what Nixon’s saying about being attracted to her as a person and not a gender, but I wouldn’t agree with describing butch lesbians in this manner…

      It IS an odd comment, but the rest of the article about Cyn’s coming out is very good. Click on “via” above & read it in (ugh?) the Advocate.

      As for Christine well all i can do is think of that crappy song we had to sing in like 7th grade : Everyone is beau-ti-ful, in their OOOWN waaaay….

      Cynthia was very good playing Eleanor Roosevelt in that movie about FDR’s hot springs treatments for his polio. Eleanor was a great woman and with a touch of makeup & dental prostheses Cynthia looked *Just* like her ! Lol

      YO by the way Queerty: Cynthia’s wife-to-be is her “fiancee” because she’s a woman. Intentional dig or absent minded mistake?

      MY GOD! when i saw the headline, my first thought was “oh no, what conservative Focus on the Family douchebag said this???”

      then i click, only to read that cynthia nixon said this about her own future wife.

      as some you have already said: bizarre!

      @jeffree: I’d give Queerty the benefit of the doubt. More and more lately, a lot of people just use the word “fiance” for both sexes, partly because it’s easier and partly because English speakers aren’t used to so many gendered words as French speakers.
