A recent Gallup poll found that the number of Americans identifying as LGBTQ has risen sharply, up from 4.5 percent in 2017 to 5.6 percent in 2021, a 24% increase in just four years. Well, knock me over with a feather boa.
Several lesbian feminists were troubled by the survey results, as the number of Americans identifying as lesbian remained roughly the same, while the number identifying as bisexual or transgender skyrocketed. They believe that many young people who would have identified as lesbian in days of yore are now coming out as nonbinary or transgender. Egad!
The belief is that many masculine lesbians are now "transitioning" to "men," causing the lesbian community as a whole to shrink. Aimee Anderson apparently saw this phenomenon coming and stated so in an article she wrote in 2015, titled "The Death of the Lesbian." Anderson laments the loss of "old-school" lesbian culture and ominously proclaimed, "I care about the extinction of an entire people: lesbians."
First the dinosaurs and now lesbians. Life on Earth is tough.
Katie Herzog joins Anderson in her fond remembrance of the lesbian yesteryear utopia. Herzog penned a piece called "Where Have All the Lesbians Gone?" in which she wrote: "For older lesbian activists, there is something deeply sad about generations of females who don't want to be lesbians or even women." She recalled how an elderly lesbian once said to her that someday in the future, people will be saying: "We heard about these creatures called lesbians," adding, "They'll dig up our bones. But the bones, of course, cannot talk."
But West Virginia University humanities librarian Lynne Stahl disagrees. Stahl, in a piece published in the Washington Post, stated: "As a lesbian researcher of tomboyism trained in queer theory, I find claims like these absurd and frightening."

Ah, a sick fad is all most of this is. Will they admit it?
They have nothing to fear. They’re all still lesbians.

Of all the things there are in this world to worry about, a decline in the number of lesbians is not one that concerns me.
Will there ever be a gay civil war?
I’d support both sides with ammo.
Its amazing to think that people can actually have an "academic" career studying such useless shit, But when you realize that the USA Empire is living on massive government debt, printed money, manipulated interest rates - all this goes to support leftist social-engineering schemes and their cronies, you can understand how.
A lesbian shortage? Well, as it is with racism, I’m sure they can be synthesized. But how many lesbians are enough? And what do we do with a surplus? And wouldn’t a shortage make the lesbians we have more valuable? So many questions!
