Cynthia Nixon == NOT "Born This Way"

This is an awfully damaging comment. Think of it this way -- what if someone could actually change their skin color and said, "I can be black or white, but today I choose to be black because I like it better." Does that put them into a suspect classification where they should get legal protections? If I am about to be fired, can I become gay or become black or become some protected class so that it is harder to fire me?

Really opens a whole new can of worms from a legal analysis standpoint.
