L Word and Visibility 

Stacey D'Erasmo wrote an amazing preview of The L Word back in January in the NY Times (free registration required), "Lesbians on Television: It's Not Easy Being Seen." D'Erasmo, who self-describes as "Being an L myself," gave a glimpse into the show, but also discussed a bit of the impact of moving from media invisibility to media stereotypes to media representations of everyday moments without fanfare. Now that we're several episodes into the season, I can see that D'Erasmo's insights and predictions for the success of the show are both holding true.

My one question is: who is Jenny in bed with in the headline photo for the article? I don't think it's either Tim or Marina. Hmm...
