I’m so excited. I know this American idiom. It’s when a woman gets pregnant and is more or less forced to get married to the father. Must be called that because her father would lead him, metaphorically, to the alter with a shotgun.

It was the wedding my parents had to have in 1976 because of yours truly.

I’m from Russia and I’ve never seen a gay bear. Of course we refuse to give gays drivers licenses so that could be why. They just can’t drive to Petersburg πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ‡·πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡·πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡·πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡·πŸ‡ΊπŸ»πŸ»πŸ»πŸ³οΈ‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈

Bears are typically bigger gay guys who typically have facial hair and typically have body hair, who can typically enjoy a steak and potato meal. Cubs are young bears. Otters are skinny bears. At least they are in gay world.
Tops’ son and I are bears. 🏳️‍🌈

Are you serious. Omg.....I didn’t know it was real slang. I’m sorry. I hope I didn’t offend anyone.

Sadly, based on your description, I never met a gay bear. I never a gay anyone. They must stay hidden. It’s very sad and shameful. I like my country. I do not like their treatment of homosexuals.

Again, I hope I didn’t offend anyone. I was talking about a real bear. Just showing my ignorance. πŸ™

A bear is a masculine gay man. No offense taken. Although all mammals have a percentage of those born gay. And it is highly likely you have met gay people.

Yes. It was a wedding in which the father of the bride MADE the boy that got his daughter pregnant marry said daughter, with force of shotgun, if necessary.

Are you referring to the 1954 movie or the tv show? I just looked it up and I didn’t realize that Richard Dean Anderson (McGyver) was on that! And so was Peter Horton (Thirty Something)! Lol
