I am not sure why you do not consider yourself a bear. Aside from the physical, (which you do fit in just fine, don't ever let anyone tell you differently) I saw your video about your calendar and for the brief bit I did see, you certainly have the right personality to be a bear. Remember that being a bear is just as much a state of mind as it is a look.

I’m closer physically to being a Bull than a Bear.

But I don’t identify as bear, or bull, or twink, or anything.

I identify as Beyonce. (Audience laughter for ten minutes).

…actually, I don’t identify as a bear because I’ve never felt accepted by that community. It’s ironic that the bear movement was borne from exclusion by more athletic body types, and now bears are just as exclusive as the gay cliques that rejected them.
