However, is it a winner-takes-all conclusion in the homosexuality debate? According to Sex and the City actress Cynthia Nixon, maybe there's more than one way to be gay.

This Post Grad Life: Mistakes Are the New Black

Lately I've been behaving in weird, mysterious and dumb ways. I've partied on the occasional weekday. I went running back to a guy that didn't deserve even the time it takes to bat an eyelash in his direction. I stopped working out because I thought eating less would make me happier.
