"Lesbians are often “defeminized” and “dehumanized” by the criminal justice system, and therefore subjected to considerable abuse by law enforcement agents. Women perceived to be lesbians—often based on gender nonconforming appearance or conduct—are regularly called “dyke,” “bulldagger,” and “wannabe man,” and subject to violence during interactions with law enforcement. For instance, an attorney in Chicago reports that one of her clients, whom she describes as very “butch,” is subjected to constant harassment by police, and is frequently “slammed up against a wall, patted down, and verbally assaulted.” One sixty-five-year-old African American lesbian who lives in senior public housing in San Francisco is so frequently beaten by police officers responding to complaints by homophobic neighbors that she now says, “If I need help, I call the fire department. If they show up, at least it’s not with guns drawn.” One advocate reports knowing an African American lesbian sex worker who is hit and “roughed up” by police officers so frequently that she is inured to the abuse."

"In Episode 10, we have a six-and-a-half minute seduction/sex scene involving five different characters that is as kinky and subversive and suggestive as any sex scene that you have seen on network television,” he teases. “I would put it as a contender to challenge cable sex scenes — not in terms of the nipple and crack of nakedness — but more in the psychology and sensuality of sex amongst the mad.” But wait, are all five of those people in the same room together? “It depends on how you define room,” replies Fuller, with a chuckle."
