Cynthia Nixon gets engaged to a girl. I think.

May 18th, 2009 // 94 Comments

Cynthia Nixon is engaged to her long-time girlfriend Christine Marinoni, according to Access Hollywood:

According to the source, the “Sex and The City” star told the crowd at the Love, Peace and Marriage Equality rally in New York City, that she became engaged last month.
“I think we would definitely [get married] if it became legal in New York,” Cynthia told Access’ Shaun Robinson in an interview last year. “I don’t really want to get married to get married pretend. I think we’d like to do it in a real, actual, legal way that the state would recognize.”

Someone help me out here. Based on my understanding, lesbians are supposed to be attracted to women. So why do they always end up dating ones that look like men? Or is the vagina the ultimate trump card here? “Sure, she looks like my brother, but hey, no penis. High five!”

    It looks like Eric Stoltz from that 80′s movie “Mask”

    If it got thrashed in the face with its strap-on, it’d only be an improvement.

    Who has the male or female role here? Good luck to them.

    “Based on my understanding, lesbians are supposed to be attracted to women.”
    That’s a misconception. Lesbians are attracted to men, but men aren’t attracted to them….so they date women that resemble men and share their neurosis.

    #57 Just keep telling yourself that. Maybe someday some woman will be drunk enough to throw a pity fuck your way and you’ll manage to get laid once before you die.

    If I had to wake up next to that every morning…. Somebody wake me up from this nightmare! Ahhhhhhhhhhhggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    I wish them happiness.

    Finally, somebody else asked the question that I have always wondered about myself. Why does a chick who likes chicks hook up with a chick who doesn’t remotely resemble a chick? I don’t like men who look like women (Well, maybe once but I was drunk.) Anywho….it is one of life’s great mysteries.

    I wish them tremendous happiness. I think they’re a wonderful couple.

  13. Congrats girl! I really admire and support her.
    Have you seen her in the SATC Bloopers?

    Uh, because she’s still a chick, not a guy. Women aren’t gay because they hate how men look, they’re gay because they like women – and not all women look alike or present their sexuality in the same way.

  15. Yeah

    Someone needs to put that photo up on Hot Chicks with Douchebags.

    anyone else seeing that?

  17. spaceage

    looks like seth green put on a few pounds….

    I don’t know, if you’re a lipstick “lesbian” and you get engaged to a woman who does her damnedest to be as man-like as she possibly can, are you really gay? Just sayin’.

  19. Groucho

    I do not understand the whole “lesbian” thing either, when the supposed lesbians date women who look like ugly men. I know someone who has recently dated 2 guys and 1 girl (in succession, not the same time), and they all looked the same – she claimed she is “bi” but the girl looked just like a dude! It’s weird. Why not date a hot chick, if you actually like girls?

  20. I DO PREFER ANOTHER LESBIAN, folks.
    ………..a woman this time!!

  21. mrmr

    she looks like a younger ron howard

    @69 Because this way SHE’S the hot chick. Just because she’s gay it doesn’t mean she has to be attracted to femmes. If you like athletic and toned women who love to hike and camp rather than the Kim Kardashian hair-nails-spackled makeup-too much padding package, are you gay? Hell no. Everyone has a type they like – your friend is dating a type and trying out the various options packages. And no matter whether her GF is uggo (and I gotta say that’s the worst hair I’ve ever seen on either sex) or looks like guy and you can’t figger out why she’d be with her, bottom line is when the clothes come off, GF doesn’t have a dick. Some people consider that a plus.

    And there’s Marla Hooch—what a hitter!

    I am sexy, looking for some guy online for some fun. I created a profile on
    *******SugarBabyMeet.COM********
    where I write blogs, discuss with others in forum and upload my own video which I made. It is very fun there.

  25. I think that little Bonaduce looking dude was the comic relief sidekick in a movie I saw recently.

    Cynthia shoulda married Antonio Salieri. That guy was a genius.

  26. I don’t understand why guys have sex changes to become lesbian women.

    They go from regular guy who is attracted to women…to disturbingly creepy looking woman who is attracted to women. And they do this around when, 47 years old? Seems like a lot of work.

    @ 49 – I’m surprised the censor didn’t filter your comment. You said the “M” word. You’re not supposed to say anything about them.

  27. Jibbly Biggins

    69 – I’m going to take a guess that hetero women who date butch women are attracted to masculine qualities normally found in a guy. Only the real lesbians go after women who appear really feminine.

    Click name

  29. Yank and wank they rhyme for a reason

    Some femme lesbians like butches. Yeah they do, really. I don’t know why? it can’t be a man but has to be butch maybe it’s a perversion but its a good one.

  30. joe

    i didn’t know she married michael rappaport…

  31. T-Dawg 30

    Wasn’ that chick in the movie The Sandlot? Ya know, as the Great Hambino?

  32. The Mitch

    I bet she has the forearms like Popeye’s and can last all night long.

  33. awc

    actually, I can’t tell which one is the guy and which is the girl.

    errr, wait a sec. you’re saying they are both girls?

  34. luisa low

    who cares what she looks like
    i’m sure they’re happy and her fiancee looks like a really nice woman

  35. pissed.

    female masculinity is hot. if you don’t get it, too bad for you. also, for those of you who are so concerned with something that has nothing to do with you — get a hobby! go for a walk! live and let live!

  36. jd

    you’re a fucking idiot and a bigot. they’re both women. stop being a dick.

THAT SOME WOMEN AREN’T STRONG ENOUGH TO REALIZE THAT NOT EVERY MAN IS A BAD ONE. IT’S BIGOTRY ON A WHOLE OTHER LEVEL. THINK ABOUT IT IF YOU HAVE A BRAIN.
