10. Shane McCutcheon (Katherine Moennig) in The L Word: The Hipster Butch
Gabby liked Shane’s “swagger” but, she said, “I don’t like a woman with better fashion than me.”
All four panelists felt that Shane is a bit “girlie” and too thin. Nonetheless, Claudia said, “Shane kind of works the L.A. butch thing.”

9. Tasha Williams (Rose Rollins) in The L Word: The Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Butch
In Season 4 of The L Word, newcomer Rose Rollins played Tasha Williams, a soldier with a stoic demeanor that Alice (Leisha Hailey) breaks through. Tasha is “slow to open up, but a good woman brings it out of her,” Gabby theorized.
Though Gabby and Dawn disliked Tasha’s hair (which was mostly worn in a bun), Gabby pointed out that “she wears a uniform â€” for work!” All of the panelists also noted that Tasha both owns a motorcycle and works on it (“I think she’s probably very, very handy,” said Claudia), but Sarah took points off because she dismounted the motorcycle in a “weird” way.
All agreed that they liked Rose Rollins’ voice, but Dawn felt that Rollins didn’t entirely sell the butchness of the character.
