Lesbians. Secretaries. Sometimes secretaries who are lesbians… I am solely offered the parts which I like to refer to as “The Unf—ables.” … I was only getting auditions for obese people or 65-year-old people. Or butch lesbians. That was it! …  It’s just fun to play a regular girl for once, not a 300-pound lesbian.

The problem really isn’t Rachel Dratch - it’s the idea of what a lesbian character is and should look like, as written by men. So she’s right in not wanting to take those kinds of roles. It’s unfortunate they still exist.
