    These labels are the bane and the delight of our gay life. Gay men have long established the bizarre practice of defining and stereotyping ourselves into labels based on body type and sex practices. In the gay dictionary, burly, hairy men over a certain age are “bears.” Young bears are “cubs.” Skinnier, scruffier guys are “otters.” Young, lean, smooth guys are “twinks.” Guys into puppy play, who enjoy the “pup” role are “pups,” both in and out of the scene. Guys who prefer condomless sex are “pigs.” Tall, skinny gay guys are “giraffes” (a lesser-known label).

    How did we come up with these?

    There are just as many slang words for women. Our brain is meant to categorize and label, pattern matching.

    Bears are powerful animals that have been respected by different cultures in ancient times. A man should be proud to be thought of as a bear.

    Most of the other terms for gay men are shit though.

    I have a better idea.....why don't men just be proud to be MEN? Fags are the first to bitch and complain about society sticking labels on them and yet have come up with the most ridiculous and numerous labels in the history of the planet. All these labels do is encourage gay men to form even more cliques. The "bear community" developed because they were being shunned by the skinny bitchy queens that refused to accept them. But now the "bears" are just as cliquish as the rest of them. Try and talk to someone in one of these bear groups and you will quickly get shut down if you're not fat and hairy too. I realize not all guys who identify as "bears" are fat but the vast majority of them are. Not to mention, it's just an excuse to remain obese and praised for it.

    Once Upon a Time . . .

    It's a long story, but gay men have been adapting a lot since before I was born and I'm old. Adaptation is always stressful. So we put each other through a lot of stress.
