I actually do not know what you are talking about. I believe that the code I provided works (if i did not make typing mistake), but you failed to provide data to test so I made my own data and subset inside lm works as expected.

fake<-data.frame(weight<-rnorm(15), length=weight*3+rnorm(15), sex=rep(c("b","g"), c(7,8)))
plot(fake$length, fake$weight, col=as.numeric(fake$sex))
bl<-lm(weight~length, data=fake, subset=sex=="b")
gl<-lm(weight~length, data=fake, subset=sex=="g")
abline(gl, col=2)

Beware that R is smart but not smart enough to correct user typing mistakes (missing parntheses, missing commas, etc.). Typing mistakes are probably the most common source of failing code.
