COL248: Common Relationship Mistakes Gay Men Make

Louis-Kwong-Jr-Hot-Gay-Bear-11In this episode of Cubs Out Loud, the guys tackle the common relationships gay men make. From neediness to comfort and all that’s in between, we review a recent Tumblr article that talks about gay men and potential relationship mistakes. Some we agree with and some we think are shit. Listen in to find out what we think.

What’s Going On?

  • [Gary] – When it rains, it monsoons
  • [Damon] – Bear Potluck

Feedback:

  • Facebook: Chris Ransdell

Hearing about Gary’s Facebook friend who challenged somebody about leaving a dog in cold weather made me really frustrated. What kind of dog they are talking about wasn’t mentioned but the idea that dogs (most dogs) are in peril being in a car for some period of time when the temperature is either 32 OR 11 is silly. Many breeds of dog are perfectly safe in a wind protected enclosed space (like a car) at below freezing temps. They do have fur and tails to cover their nose with etc. Wolves, coyotes and lots of domesticated sledding breeds live in northern climates far colder than 11 or 32 degrees and without benefit of a car wrapped around them!
