The L Wart

I find it hard to believe. I certainly don't want to believe it. But the rate of domestic violence among lesbian couples is high.

How high? Higher than George Michael behind the wheel.

In a story on a Massachusetts woman who allegedly killed her ex-partner's AA sponsor earlier this month because she thought the sponsor came between them, EDGE notes that one in three lesbians will experience domestic violence at some point.

So much for the idea many of us believe, even hold dear, that female space is safe space. Makes you want to head to outer space.

By the way, the rate of domestic violence for straight women is the same. Equality at last.
