I wonder what this 10% means thoug, is it Love or sex?

I know there are straight (?) guys who have sex with other guys, they can only love women, but they dont get turned on by them.

i saw this on Operah last year.....

I am pretty sure at the point where you have sex with another male you arent necessarily straight anymore lmao

oh and love=/=sex

you can love someone without wanting sex, and you can have sex with someone without loving them. either way, it would be gay to romantically love another man or have sex.

I'm pretty sure the guitarist from AFI is gay.... he isnt extremely famous, but decently known..... and there are probobly many more, but to be gay is one thing, but openly is different, it certainly could hurt sales

not unless everyone in the world plays guitar.

as a guess i'll say 25% of the people on earth play guitar/bass. which means only 10% of those 25%. which leaves only a small 2.5% of not-straight guitar players in the whole world.

and even that statistic could be greater or less due to cultural reasons.

In what way? Your sexual orientation doesn't affect how you play guitar...

It would still imply 10% of all guitarists are gay

and it's not like there's some rule that says that the apparently random 10% of gay people are evenly dispersed between all other walks of life- What if, coincidentally, not a single gay person plays guitar?

lol. sorry, my bad. i lost myself in my numbers.

2.5% would be the percent of gay people who play guitar in the world.

it would still be 10% of all guitarists though, as you stated.

I disagree. Unless you are a close-minded S.O.B who doesn't like their methul all gayed up, then it makes little to no difference. I know i wouldn't stop buying someones music just because they were gay...would it stop you?
