In gay slang, a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bear_%28gay_culture%29 "bear"]] is a ManlyGay man with a CarpetOfVirility--and not always just on their chests. Very often bears are also [[BigBeautifulMan voluptuously heavy set]] and at least middle-aged, but these are not definitive requirements. Exceptionally thin bears are often known as "otters" or "wolves", younger bears are "cubs" or "pups", Asian bears are "pandas", and especially muscular bears are often called "muscle bears" or "bulls". A "husbear" is a term some men use for their bearish boyfriends or husbands. "Otters" are hairless bears, while "pandas" are Asian bears.

* One episode of ''Series/ModernFamily'' has Mitchell and Cam look for a gay club to go on New Years Eve. As they are comparing their situation to that of {{Goldilocks}}, as they hadn't yet found one that was "just right", three [[TheBear bears]] walk out of one of the bars and the guys share an amused look.
