Gay men who define themselves as bears reject the mainstream gay physical ideal and tend to be less interested in trendy fashion and obsessive body consciousness. This rejection of the physical ideal results in more body hair, more balding, rounder bellies, and less manicuring overall. But within the bear culture, the subset of chubs and super-chubs has been growing. The characteristics that previously defined bear culture are becoming eclipsed by a propensity for size. I have experienced this from both sides of the equation: I dated an otter who doubled as a chaser who wanted me to get fatter.
