Anonym: I play piano and percussion (mostly mallet percussion). How much gay?

Almost not at all if you’re male. If you’re female then quite likely. If you’re neither then it doesn’t matter you’re already on the gays’ Good Side. Besides if you’re non-conforming then you already don’t conform to these rules sooooo


@a-lexanderhamilton: i play the cello and viola…how gay? 

you have very gay potential my friend


Anonym: What about female guitarists? 

ah yes see there you’re very different from male guitarists. you are quite likely gay, because who wouldn’t turn lesbian after hearing “oh i can play guitar too! *struggles to play stairway to heaven*” as a flirting technique daily


Anonym: I play flute, piccolo, piano & guitar. How gay?

Well whatever gender you are, some of them are quite gay and some of them mitigate your gay. you probably have no sexuality at all you are in fact 7 sexualities in a trenchcoat
