Default Sub-Cultures of GLBTQ FAs

I am around alot of people of color that identify as gay/les/bi/trans and specifically, one thing that is always looked down on, especially in the black lesbian community is masculine women dating/having sex with, other masculine women. Some even go as far to say that's "gay" or "fag shit" -- I don't know if anyone else has heard of this or not but it bothers me. If it makes any sense, I can understand black folks being a tad traditional (even ones who live an alternative lifestyle), so maybe the whole gender role thing really skeeves people out. One of my friends dislikes it (she's a masculine woman, committed to a femme) and says her thing is..."who would f*ck who?"

Has anyone else come up on these types of feelings? I know from what BBSSBBW was saying there is alot of turning up of noses at bi women -- but I don't just think its from lesbians. Another friend of mine is bi and she says people take her sexuality as a joke; that she can't possibly like men and women and if she does...she's greedy. People don't see bisexuality as being a valid orientation...
