L-Word Season 5 Takes on Our Issues...

Bravo to the L-Word this season! In their midst of Lesbian erotica
the producers manage to touch base on Don't Ask Don't Tell....
with our fave Lesbian in the Military Tasha played by Rose Rollins...
& then Shane played by Kate Moennig touches on gay marriage
while doing the hair for a hetero wedding party's female members.
The only objection I found was with the misinformation when one
of the bride's sisters asked Shane's sexual preference & then stated
that "Gay Marriage" will never happen in this country. This could
have been a cool opportunity for Shane to educate her about
Massachusetts. Instead it wasn't addressed & the scene just
developed into another display of Shane's conquests.
Then there are a few more Lesbian cliche scenes with Women
In Prison & of course they're making a big deal about the Lesbian
U-Hauling thing, but for the most part this season has great
potential. Through the Writer's Strike @ least for we have
a few months with something decent to watch.... :)

I don't watch the show,my cable doesn't provide me with that channel. It sounds very interesting and you're right that would have been a good opportunity to educate the one character there.
