Summary0011478: Sometimes descriptions say "bears" when should say "bares".
DescriptionThis is a tricky grammatical issue, but an arm "bares" a scar, meaning it shows it, as opposed to "bearing" a scar which is more like carrying one.
This came up because I am playing an adventure mode game where I play three grizzly bear people, and a viewer found it humorous that a description said her arm *bears* a scar.

No, if you slide up your sleeve, it bares the scar that the arm bears. The arm carries the scar, the sleeve reveals it, bear is correct.

I agree with Rafatio here. The usage of "bears" is correct.
