This doesn't reflect reality at all. I know far more lesbian couples (including myself and my fiancee) who are both feminine than I know couples with a "seme/uke" dynamic, to maintain the otaku metaphors. -
Interesting. I actually found these terms offensive when I heard them. It just implies that there must be someone dominant over the other, which leads to a bunch of patriarchy stuff dead horse. >.>

The longer they beat around the bush, the more they can rile up the fanbase, the more they can waggle the carrot on a stick and keep people buying their stuff.
The carrot's rotten by now.
Let us start here from Square one. No... from zero!
You do not wish to know anything. You wish only to speak.
That which you know, you ignore, because it is inconvenient.
That which you do not know, you invent.
