  • Re: COL437: Old School Bears Online: tnliving’s comment: “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.”

ATNS: Feedback

  • Re: COL440: The Klondykes: From [Redacted]: This is NOT a comment of hate, this is a comment of reality……I 1st saw pics of this “contest” on the old (better) Bear Underground site. They were posted by the winner of the “Glitter Bear” title, ya know, the guy who is dolphin smooth and not bear like in any way.. After looking at these very disturbing pictures I simply asked- What do the red\pink stripes stand for then? Of course he replied that he didn’t know and that they were just shades of red and pink. So one can only figure the color stripes stand for the “Klondikes” heavy to lite flow days. The True Bear Community has been being tainted for years and years. This is the straw that breaks the community and welcomes camel toe. Bear means hair, with that in mind I wonder, do these so-called lesbian bears not shave and grow huge bushes?? This entire Bear’s Welcome Everybody thing has gone way too far. There is a line, and the Klondikes are it. Sad to see so many forget their roots.
  • In show response regarding the colors in the logo: Per our guest Courtney Chesser: “I’m so glad someone asked! The logo was made by local Aly shine. It is a mixture of the bear pride flag and femme flag on our behalf. The pinks are the bear pride “skin” colors translated into shades of pink. Pink is traditionally displayed in the femme pride flag so it’s accepting of all ranges of skin as well as ranges of femininity.”

  1. Hey fellas! I just wanted to say thanks for the mention in the podcast, I’m very happy you enjoyed the pics and the new gifs (Damon, you are very kind). I wanted to explain a couple of things about the gifs: I do have videos of some sexual encounters, but in order to get permission to record them I had to promise my buddy that they were only for personal use and would not be shared. He is married to a woman, and while she is aware that he likes having sex with men, the rest of his family is highly homophobic. I have to respect his wishes. However, recently I asked him if I might be able to post a short gif from a video in which his identity was hidden by my bulk, and he agreed, which is why I was able to create those gifs. TBH, I was completely blown away by the response to them, and quickly realized that I didn’t really think it through before I posted them… I know it sounds dumb, but I didn’t consider that someone might start asking to see the video they were taken from. This presents a problem, because the raw video footage shows my buddy’s face and a recognizable tattoo, and I’m not savvy enough with video editing to know how to blur those things out and protect his identity. BUT, I am working to try to put together some footage that will keep him anonymous. I have to show it to him first to make sure he’s comfortable with it, and if all goes well I will post it to my xtube account (under “inflatabear”) and share the link to Tumblr.

    Here are a couple of other things I wanted to share:
    1. I’m glad you like my 12 inch vinyl singles from Janet Jackson and Whitney Houston! I have another wall devoted to Jody Watley, Patti LaBelle, Madonna and Michael Jackson.
    2. Sorry about the scoutmaster socks and the sneakers, that’s just something I like, one of my kinks is the BSA uniform (as you’ve previously mentioned, thank you again, BTW, THAT full video is available on the aforementioned xtube)
    3. Gary, I’m glad I’ve managed to get back in your good graces, my apologies for anything that might have put you off previously… 🙂

  2. Thank you so much for having this episode! I love that you didn’t sweep it under the rug and called out exclusionary thinking. Done with sass and strength and compassion. Thank you for rocking the boat.
