Cynthia Nixon's comments that being gay was a personal choice for her rankled all manner of folk earlier this month. And now she's weathered the shitstorm Nixon has come out to clarify her position – even though she did a pretty good job of it the first time around – and say that, for her, being gay is a choice but her bisexuality is not. "While I don't often use the word, the technically precise term for my orientation is bisexual. I believe bisexuality is not a choice, it is a fact. What I have 'chosen' is to be in a gay relationship," she told The Advocate. "I do, however, believe that most members of our community - as well as the majority of heterosexuals - cannot and do not choose the gender of the persons with whom they seek to have intimate relationships because, unlike me, they are only attracted to one sex." Personally, as a card-carrying 'mo, I must say that I wasn't riled up to begin with; it's her sexuality, let her define it how she pleases. She also had a point when she said that the whole debate has been ceded to bigots and we shouldn't let them dictate how we choose to define ourselves. I expect to see your utterances of agreement and vicious personal attacks in the comments … Go! [The Advocate]

It may shock you to learn that some women are offended by the idea they're considered receptacles for the bodily waste of men. Women! Anyway, some of these feminazis have taken umbrage at the world-infamous mouth urinals at The Rolling Stones memorabilia museum in Germany and are asking that they be removed. Though the logo was originally inspired by Mick Jagger's lips, the protesters say these are different because they lack a tongue and are therefore just women's mouths. But the owner is calling tough titties: "They were damned expensive and they're staying where they are … That's final." [TMZ]

1. How did women find out about the urinals?

2. Um... do you really not expect some form of sexism at a Rolling Stones museum? "I'm no schoolboy but I know what I like. Hear me whip the women, just around midnight." "Under my thumb, a squirming dog who just had her day." "Black girls just want to fuck all night." "Just a stupid girl" etc... The Rolling Stones themselves revel in racism and sexism. It just makes sense that a museum honoring them would do the same.

3. I pretty much think that given the several dozen out of wedlock children that Mick is paying child support for that he pretty much does view women as a receptacle.

4. Has anyone here read Keith Richards autobiography? It actually has the sentence "Brian (Jones) was a woman-beater but he was my best friend for a while."

Don't get me wrong. I love the Rolling Stones music but as people they are racist, sexist idiots and these urinals go perfectly with their general oeuvre.
