Cynthia Nixon absolutely bodied the person who called her an 'unqualified lesbian'

Slay.

As we all know, Cynthia Nixon recently announced her intention to run for New York governor.

The former Sex and the City star has plans to challenge the current governor and become one of the first female openly LGBT candidates to take up such a position.

Nixon identifies as bisexual and yet, she has been called an "unqualified lesbian" by former New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn.

Quinn is openly gay herself, but a staunch supporter of New York's current governor, Andrew Cuomo.

And in fairness to her, she didn't just call Nixon an "unqualified lesbian" out of nowhere - there was context to the statement.

This is it.

She told the New York Post:

"Cynthia Nixon was opposed to having a qualified lesbian become mayor of New York City.

"Now she wants to be an unqualified lesbian to be the governor of New York. You have to be qualified and have experience. She isn’t qualified to be the governor."

Quinn was referring to when Nixon decided to support Bill de Blasio instead of Quinn in the New York mayor race in 2013.

However, Nixon wasn't about to take the comment lying down and she took to Twitter to absolutely body Quinn.

She wrote:

Damn, girl.

Quinn then took it upon herself to clarify her comments, saying that Nixon's sexuality had nothing to do with the point she was making.

She said:

In the past, Nixon has campaigned for women's and LGBT rights in New York and elsewhere, while also fighting to improve the city's school system.

The former actor has already begun her campaign online.
