When news of Alex coming out as a lesbian, the lesbian (and gay friendly peeps) cheered. It had to be done right. It had to be positive and it was. In spades. Then we cheered for a relationship with Maggie. Surely ONE happy lesbian couple of television was possible. It just had to be. Alas gay or straight, relationships sometimes don’t work. The one thing the lesbian community feared was that Maggie would die (Alex could not die since she was one of the main characters). Every lesbian dies on television after they fall in love, right?

Apparently not all lesbians. Some of them dance it out, have breakup sex and just separate. Just like a heterosexual couple does…at least there is that. That’s not helpful but at least Maggie did not die.
