Soooo, you’re saying that this ‘Ceci n’est pas un ours’ t-shirt from Burlyshirt is being used by gay men who *do* identify as bears to tip off other gay men that they aren’t just trendy straight beardos, but that you are wearing it to show that you really *don’t* identify as a bear, although you are gay and hairy? Doesn’t this tend to confuse other gay men into thinking you identify as a bear? Just asking out of curiosity…
