From an interview with actor Mark Ruffalo promoting "The Kids Are All Right," in which his character attracts Julianne Moore`s character, the femme in a butch-femme lesbian household, into a heterosexual affair:
... Ruffalo says he has come up against some bizarre territory marking and paranoia in the real world as a result of the movie.

"I was doing an interview with a woman on tv and afterward the woman said, `By the way, I`m a lesbian, and you lay off our women,`" Ruffalo recalls.

"At first I thought she was kidding and then I realized she was really serious," he adds. "She totally meant it. I was like, `Are you kidding?`"

Ruffalo worried "she was going to arm wrestle me or something." He didn`t think he`d fare well either: "Not against that passion."
