twinks are twinks and bears are bears
From what I've seen in Phoenix, twinks are still the norm.
i read this yesterday. i want to see that movie.
Anyhow...this article seems to go off on a completely other direction. starts talking about Inglorious Basterds..and then the holocaust?
just depends what crowd you hang out with.......
up here in New England, bears are more common... maybe because it's so damned cold up here, we need the extra padding
.. the hartford eagle. actually, for the most part i usually saw twinks at the average club but a lot of bears at a bar.
i believe its not trying to say bears are replacing twinks its or are twinks its saying its gonna be more that just the twink for a tipical gay in mainstream or to others eyes. its introducing this to the mainstream and so its saying theres all kinds of gays manly and bearish. not just twinks and femmes'...
this may or may not be appropriate for this thread but
*shameless plug alert*
a friend of mine put together a documentary about the issue of masculinity among gay men called "the butch factor". it's touring around the country and would like to suggest it.
*end shameless plug*
seriously, grammar and punctuation would help this post sooooo much!
GEORGE EASTMAN HOUSE!
GEORGE EASTMAN HOUSE!
Thanks for the pluggggggggggrarrr. I might go see it at the GEORGE EASTMAN HOUSE!
bears are gross. no offense
...more for me
IDK who told the extra padding works, Cause I still damn near freeze in the winter
You're a man. You're supposed to be hairy and muscular. Doesn't matter what your taste in genitalia is.
I've heard of bears before, but never twinks. Glad I did though, because now I know what my other gay friend is categorized as. The dreamy techno density in his vicinity is so high I swear one of these days it's gonna tear a hole in spacetime and he's going to fall through it, never to be seen again.
Hey, maybe that's what's happening to the rest of 'em! I should warn him.
i usually see muscle boys at those circuit events... stereotypically usually the pop stuff is where the twinks like to go out and dance?
P!nk played in SF yesterday.
my friend said there were tons of bears and lesbians
Butch or femme? If they were femmes it would be even funnier, because it would look perfectly normal (if I can use that expression), except they'd be grinding on themselves instead of each other. It would be like one of those fucked up paintings where everything looks normal until you see the details...
With age, I find I like bears more than twinks. In that sense, I guess bears are the new twinks... for me.
well, most of the older bears i know are aged twinks from the 70's and 80's.
as they got older they, naturally, put on lbs and were happy to find that there was a following attraction to that.
the younger bears (i call them post-bears) are more "hipster" than "lumberjack"
IMO http://www.pinupsmag.com/ (NSFW!) is a good example of what the younger generation of the bear scene looks like.
and of course the leather-muscle-bear look will never go out of style also.
I guess it's cause I'm bi, but I just can't stand a buncha hair on my guy...ick..
