I wonder if the people setting up this study thought about the number of characters of sentient, personified machines that now exist. From R-2D2 to Wall-E to Bender we are exposed to machines that are people, and we increasingly give conscious attributes to our phones and computers.

As for what happens to the parallel infrastructure, look at what happened to black-owned businesses once segregation was made illegal. Much of the black middle-class disappeared as the former patrons of their businesses wanted to shop at Kmart instead. Any remaining gay establishments will be seen as strange and seedy.
