But does anyone have any data specifically on lesbian numbers? And even more specifically, to the lesbian extinction question at hand, does anyone have any data on afab lesbians? Cuz I think the claim you're addressing is regarding whether afabs identifying as lesbians is going down. Everyone can of course have their own opinions about the value of that number versus others, but this is the number in question, not LGBness or queerness numbers. Some people are wondering whether afabs who would otherwise have been lesbians- especially butch lesbians- are instead identifying as non-binary or men. Of course, this is all complicated by the phenomenon of people calling themselves both lesbian and enby and/or trans, so I don't envy anyone attempting to do this research, but so far I don't see any numbers on this specific question.
