It's not that having lesbian characters is a problem itself, but when a story is clearly about the lives of gay men, the lone lesbian character often feels like an obligation more than anything else, and at worst becomes an afterthought who isn't given nearly as much attention and development as the men in the story.

It is also worth noting that works centering around gay women [[DoubleStandard never include a token male couple in such a way]].

* Averted with Kirsten and Dana from ''WesternAnimation/RickAndSteve'', as they are fairly prominent on the show. However, they still fall victim to the AllLesbiansWantKids storyline, albeit in several unexpected ways.

* ''ChelseaBoys'' has this, nearly, with Ricki and Lucie. They're there, they're lesbians, and they ask the lead male to be the father of their baby. But the comic also has Annie, who gets a decent amount of page time as Sky's lesbian friend from school.
* ''DykesToWatchOutFor'' has a rare inversion with Carlos, the male role model/babysitter for Toni and Clarice's son Raffi. Later on, there was Gerald, a gay female-to-male transsexual Lois developed a crush on.
