BU, thought you might find this tidbit from Wikipedia interesting:

"Numerous studies done between the 1980 and 1994 [1][15][16][17][18][19] report that lesbian relationships have higher overall rates of interpersonal aggression (including psychological aggression/emotional abuse) than heterosexual or gay male relationships. Furthermore, women who have been involved with both men and women reported higher rates of abuse from their female partners. [20]"

Looks like you're not alone. :/
