A subculture of hefty, hirsute gay men is attracting the attention of academics and social critics.
LA Times: February 4, 2007
“Oh, by the way, in addition to 19th century American literature, I work on bear studies.”
The interlocutors were perplexed. “Bear studies?” one asked. “Do you mean bears in literature — say, William Faulkner’s story ‘The Bear’ ?” Someone else suggested “Winnie the Pooh” — perhaps the candidate worked on children’s literature?

My own view is that the minute you start taking bear culture too seriously, you’ve lost it. It’s fun and unpretentious and easy-going. And slovenly masculinity has always been integral to male homosexuality; it has just often been eclipsed by heterosexual obsession with gender-nonconformism among homosexuals.

“What’s it about? In part a celebration of mature masculinity – untweaked, unshaven, full-bellied masculinity. Simultaneously, it’s an attempt to subvert a little of that masculinity. The atmosphere is almost aggressively gentle, good-humored, accepting, and friendly. These are not men trying to impress anyone, nor trying to throw their considerable weight around. Mostly over forty, these men are not traumatized by having a gut or some flab. They’re not afraid that back-hair tumbles over their collar. They’re not afraid to embrace their sexual orientation as fully as their gender. . .”
