COL437: Old School Bears Online

On this episode of Cubs Out Loud, we are joined by a robed Hadrian to talk about the good ole days of bears online. From sneaking onto erotic newsgroups to the dating apps of today, the cubs take a nostalgic trip through the history of a bear’s online life.  Plus we go on a bit of a tangent about supporting bear services and content.

One thought on “COL437: Old School Bears Online”

  1. Having a different view in some part of one’s personal life shouldn’t disqualify them from being a valued member of a community. Just like we don’t want to be excluded or discriminated from normal civic life because we are gay, we also shouldn’t exclude others based on their political views in general. As with most issues there are plenty of grey areas but being a Donald Trump supporter is not comparable to maybe being a founder of a gay reformation group. Being an active participant in the Westboro Baptist church should probably preclude somebody from being taken seriously leading a gay social group. Being a Republican (even a Trump Republican) certainly should not in my opinion.
