Why us?

I've been watching Nip Tuck 5, and was delighted to see Ellen's partner, Portia de Rossi, in the series. She's gorgeous, and a far cry from that backtracking Anne Heche. So, I get very excited to see that she plays Julia MacNamara's new love. And then, it all seems to go awry. Why are all the lesbians unbalanced? Why are they so bloody flawed? Can they not make a normal, balanced lesbian who happens to look gorgeous and kick ass in the bedroom at the same time? In Nip Tick, the character played by Portia has a psycho daughter who any lesbian would be ashamed to name her own. Man, oh man, why can't the dyke just have a normal, well-adjusted kid? Is it too much to ask? Does anyone have any viewpoint on this one? If so, I'd love to hear your theories.
