In the beginning, there was the homosexual. Once oppressed and ignored, the homosexual rose to global influence with his keen sense of style and sharp wit.
The homosexual begot the metrosexual, for the straight man looked to him and thought “damn, he looks so good I could kiss him. How can I pull that off?”
And now, though our labels become less adhesive and more interchangeable, there are trends which cannot be completely ignored.
There’s the spornosexual, which, OK, stop trying to make spornosexual happen. It’s not going to happen.
But what of the spornosexual’s even burlier cousins? The ones with beards instead of stubble, axes instead of CrossFit?
Well GearJunkie has dubbed them lumbersexuals, and they’ll steal your heart faster than you can say “what do you mean this cabin doesn’t have plumbing?!”
Here they are in their natural habitat:
I'm Black, and HIV-Positive.
Mmm. Let me watch you chop me some wood Mr. Lumbersexual!
I loves me a manly-man withe a beard!
A real lumberjack would eat these pretty boys alive. This is no different than a bunch of boys in heels, it’s just “masculine” drag.
Nice eye candy, but a gym rat with a beard, an axe, and a plaid shirt from the clearance rack at Old Navy doesn’t add up to “lumberjack.” Call it what it is: Village People Disorder.
I did two whole series of photos on the subject 🙂
These men are hotter than hot.
Look, I think that song is as funny as anyone but it shows it’s age when they all throw food stuff at him in the end.
These days the PC Police would have a fit with something such as that which seems to inspire or advocate violence.
All of that aside, it’s still a funny song.

I’m confused. Why don’t all of these men qualify as bears?
@Trippy: Lol! You nailed it!
@Apparatus: @Trippy: Blah blah snark, blah blah snipe, blah blah blah blah
Jesus Christ just let us enjoy the scenery without your know it all troll remarks.
@Apparatus: Thank you for succinctly stating what a lot of us think. Queerty is in danger of becoming the Abercrombie & Fitch of the gay blogs. Everyone can enjoy manufactured eye candy. I’m just grumpy because when someone attempts to post a serious opinion (i.e. Zachary Quinto, a gay ally) about the silliness of our gay brothers, he gets crucified.
@Alan down in Florida:
a lot of bears–or cubs–are fat, whereas these boys seem to be trim and lean, i guess
it’s all a bunch of hoopla anyhow
it might as well be automechanics going shirtless and posed with the vehicles they’re working on, or ‘shouldering’ a muffler they’ve just removed like it was a side of venison or something
Nice. But not a real lumberjack in the lot.
It’s the early 90s all over except with beards. Not that I’m complaining, but still…
Meh… I like my Tops with a bit of a gut on them.
Very tired of homeless-length beards.
Cannot wait till people rediscover their razors and the 70s go away again.
@maxdadmark: You want news? Read the NY Times or the Economist, not a gay gossip site.
Can I be their apprentice? I’m a good study and quick on the uptake! 😉
Where’s the Log Lady?
Wait hang on, look I can html:
Where’s the log lady?
or not. oh just ignore me.
So basically people find hot guys hot? Shocking
Where do we sign up? Remember Queerty, you’ll have to turn in your man-purse.
@sanfranca1: Be glad they are real “Lumberjacks”. I grew up in Oregon and the average logger (no one uses the term lumberjack) was largely forgettable.
@kwoods: are = aren’t jeez fat fingers.
I never knew drag queens could be so sexy.
Sort of like 70s clones with bigger beards and muscles (in some cases). OK, whatever.
