When Dirty Spam is Misleading

I received a piece of spam this morning with the subject line "Hot lesbian slut gets punished by her girlfriend for fucking another boy!"

(The exclamation point was theirs, by the way, and I commend whoever put the spam together for using it instead of a more anti-gay frowny-face emoticon. In the wake of three states passing gay marriage bans on Tuesday, it makes me happy to know that spammers are so enthusiastic about homosexuality.)

As far as the substance of the subject line goes, I'm O.K. with hot lesbian sluts. I approve of them in much the same way that I approve of the progressive tax system and old Velvet Underground records. And if this particular lesbian or, for that matter, any lesbian -- hot or not, promiscuous or monogamous, or partly monogamous with a 30% chance of infidelity -- likes getting punished by her girlfriend, I'm completely supportive of that. It's the "for fucking another boy" part that I'm having trouble with. Doesn't "another" imply something that "lesbian" and "girlfriend" don't? I guess what I'm getting at is, I don't know, I'm not so convinced this hot slut is really a lesbian.
