Knight's Poitier Still Lesbian?

Knight's Poitier Still Lesbian? | Sci-Fi Wire | 12:00 AM, 25-SEPTEMBER-08 | "NBC's Knight Rider threw viewers for a loop when FBI agent Carrie Ruvai (Sydney Tamiia Poitier) was introduced in a February television movie/pilot: She was shown climbing out of the bed she had just shared with a blond woman."

It seems that gay characters in film and TV are becoming more and more acceptable. But are they? Is their portrayal being used to show that what was once thought of as an "alternate lifestyle" is now considered normal or is it just to get ratings? I don't know anymore. It seems like there's so many reasons for doing things but none of them come from simple common sense.
