Long hair on guys has always been a bit of a bone of contention when it comes to the gays. In our often futile mission to appear masculine or prioritise masculinity, hair has been the one of the markers you can control. A short shaved ‘do is less trouble and gives the impression that perhaps you’re a marine or in the army if you squint your eyes and don’t say anything.
No, the converse was about the term often used to describe a male who has a hairy body, often very hairy, including but not limited to their beard, chest, arms, back, arms and legs.
Perhaps the best definition comes from the Urban Dictionary which states:
"A gay man who is very hairy all over his body, but is smaller in frame and weighs considerably less than a bear."
