TTO – Labor Gay, celebrating the Men Who Work.

Blue Collar (Laborer)

White Collar (Suit and Tie)

Uniform (Service Industry)

Sports (Honorable Mention)

[Chester’s Quick Poll]

  • Eric Meyers – Boots
  • Tyler Stillwell – Loves, loves, loves suit and tie.
  • Andrew Ealy- Blue collar… The illusion/idea of a person who is a hard worker, not afraid to get dirty, mechanically inclined, Caretaker… The ability to build, create, repair take care of our own I find to be a sexy trait.
  • Randall Stratton – Totally agree with Andrew Ealy
  • Aron Moberg – I think for me, It’s the exchange of the masculinity representative of that archetype being an object of my pleasure. Subjected to my desires.
  • Greg Ballard – yes

Urbandictionary with Gary

  • Freudian Spell Check: When spell check changes your word to the wrong word, but the wrong word is actually more appropriate.
    • I meant to text my friend that she should go to the U2 concert with me because it would be a “great” time. Spell check changed it to “grey” time. That Freudian Spell Check is pretty smart.

  • OtterDave: Hi, I just wanted to let you know I really enjoy your podcasts. I’m realitively new to BU and the bear community, and the episode you did on bifobia really touched me. The issues you discuss are exactly what I have dealt with identifying as a bi otter. Those assumptions about bisexuality are why I have struggled with and chose not to come out. I appreciate your willingness to discuss the topic and how understanding you all are. Thanks for making all these great podcasts and not being afraid to talk about taboo topics. Congrats on the 400th episode. Woof, Dave
