Why Do The Lesbians Hate The Real L Word‘s Nikki + Jill?

The lesbian community has been the most critical of us. That was amazing to me. I was shocked. I joked in one of the episodes that Jill and I don’t define ourselves by our sexuality; it’s part of who we are along with being aunts and daughters and the rest of the things we are. That comment sparked hatred. People were very vocal on our fan page.
