Girls kick ass ... and kiss.

Diane Anderson-Minshall did a terrific job with "Take That! TV's Top 10 'Lesbian' Crime-Fighter Shows" (Vol. 13, #4). The entire commentary is so right on, especially the part about how the ability to claim the heroine as lesbian--or deny it--makes it safe and comfy for watchers. The article was insightful, and I'm passing it on to my girlfriends. Kudos!

Khandi Alexander was not the actress who kissed Peta Wilson in La Femme Nikita. It was Gina Torres, who has played a multitude of kick-ass roles, including Sydney Bristow's nemesis Anna Espinosa and Zoe on Firefly.

Your article on top 10 lesbian crime-fighter shows omitted Lifetime's The Division. Although the characters are straight, they are still strong female cops. They take their work seriously and don't waste time fighting over men. Lisa Vidal, who plays Magda, also played the lesbian firefighter Sandy Lopez on ER. Nancy McKeon's character, Jinny, is a hard-drinking tough woman who calls her own shots and stands by her man only as long as she feels like it. McKeon's own sexual orientation is a big question mark; her much-mentioned relationship with Michael J. Fox ended about a decade ago. These are just a few good reasons to watch this show.
