If they WRITE like you do, I'll hope to not encounter any.

But all kidding aside, the whole 'lisp' thing accounts for probably less than 2% of the population of homosexuals. You may as well suggest that all women act like Paris Hilton. Or that all men are Steven Seagal.

So what's the term for a collection of bears? A pride? Pack?

EDIT: looks like it's a "sleuth" (independent from the slang of the gay culture).

Here's my question: are assless chaps a part of the bear subculture, or do they fall into a subculture of their own?

No clue, I have never been one for them. Don't get the guys that wear them, never liked chaps at all unless I am working with horses. I am more the jeans, shirt, and a good flannel with my stetson kinda guy.

Sorry if you've already posted this before, but if you don't mind me asking. When did you know ou were gay? We're you into boys before you even knew what gay was? Was it as early as 1st or 2nd grade?

I'm guessing by your history that you didn't have a family that was supportive so you might have tried to deny it at first? There had to be some moment that erased all denial for you though.

Looking back on life, I realise now that I was attracted to men as young as I can remember, before I even understood what the feelings ment. My parents were quite suportive, (and liberal, but no ones perfect right? ) however the area I grew up in when I started to explore sexuality was not what one would call condusive to being gay. So I learned via social presures/comments/standards that "gay" was wrong. I tucked the feelings deep and did what I thoguth would make me "normal" including a series of long relationships with women. Met my ex-wife when I was 23, met my first real "boyfriend" when I was 24. When I say boyfriend I mean someone I saw more than one/two times for a fling. Was seeing them both for a few years then lost touch with "the boyfriend" due to once again wanting to hide my true self/feelings/whatever you want to call it.

So, married (see note 1) I bump back into the "BF" and we hit it off again. 4 months later I devorced the ***** (LONGGGGG story), and moved to sacramento with the then BF, comming out to my friends/family, and so starts the life I fought and denighed myself for 28 years. I have now been with my current partner (not that first BF) 13 years, in a open, poly relationship. We are registered domestic partners with the state of CA, and hold all the paperwork to legaly take care of each other (power of attorny, living will, etc.). I met the younger of my partners and he joined our house 5 years ago now.


(Note 1: Funny but true. I was standing at the alter, watching my soon to be wife walk down the isle, when I looked out at all the faces in the church, and thought to myself "I wonder where XXXX is and why he isnt here". XXXX of course being the name of the BF I had been seeing and had not seen in over a year. This my friends was the universe giving me a brain duster of a slap, and it STILL took me another year and a half to wake up )

Interesting. I'd always assumed that your time on the street had something to do with a religious family not accepting your choice and you wanted to get away from that situation.

So do you regret the early years? Do you wish you were honest with yourself earlier, or do you see those years as necessary to figuring out what you really wanted?

I hate when people ask those questions. It negates the fact that those early years are what shape people to what they are today.

I have wondered where and what I might be if I had accepted my feelings early on. Truth is, I would not be the man I am today, so no, no regret at all.

as to the "religious" family, LOL sorry. No actualy my parents raised all of us to honor truth and fact over fiction and fear. Really I kind of pitty people who have to put faith into a invisible god, and not themselves. Its kind of sad when you think about it, someone with such a low self esteme that they can't believe in themselves and must grasp onto a fantasy ideal.

But it is a valid question, so I don't lament him asking it.

I was looking at it from the angle: Does the stigma cause more problems? He probably would not have been married then divorced. Without the stigma everyone might have been settled in earlier because he would have been more free to be honest with himself??? (Correct me if I'm way off on this Overbear).

I agree that it's a hokey question and somewhat rhetorical, but I didn't know how else to put it.

Don't know, why is there so much libtard crap on TV? because it sells, and makes money thats why.

Both Bravo and the gay channel do it, all they show is the twinks. You never see a good bear or other manly man on there. It is kinda stupid considering bears are a good 20-30% of the gay culture.

I bet lots of them (the metrosexual type on tv) aren't even gay. It's TV so they play the image people expect to see for laughs. They're actors. It like a blond playing a ditsy role because everyone likes so see dumb blonds pretend they don't know what tunafish is.
