What is a Bear?

The most common definition of a bear is a man who is hairy, has facial hair, and a cuddly body. However, the word Bear means many things to different people, even within the bear movement. Many men who do not have one or all of these characteristics define themselves as bears, making the term a very loose one. Suffice it to say, bear is often defined as more of an attitude than anything else a sense of comfort with our natural masculinity and bodies that is not slavish to the vogues of male attractiveness that is so common in gay circles and the culture at large. The Virginia Mountain Bears club is made up of a diverse group of individuals. Whether chubby, husky, white, black, tall, short, young, older, thin, hairy or not, we do not discriminate. Everyone is welcome.
