Kind of demonstrates what slimy slimeballs they are. Oh they'll go after someone wearing fur and through paint and shit. But they'd avoid doing the same to bikers because they'd be forced to eat dead animal. Oh the horror of it.
I'm a vegetarian and I believe in animal welfare (which is different to animal rights!!). Using leather can save you if you're a biker or involved in an accident, as well as being a way to use the hide of slaughtered animals and stop it going to waste. I don't agree with PETA, if I'm honest... they never achieve anything, and it's probably their fault vegetarians and vegans have such a bad image! Ugh! We're not all like that- we're not out to convert you XD Most vegetarians will respect your opinions if you respect theirs! XD
I'm no biker (but God willing I'll have a bike one day but I still won't be joining any gangs, too dangerous for my tastes) but I'm a huge advocate for leather as a fashion statement. I have three leather jackets and want more, not to mention boots and pants
I have only been questioned about it once years ago when I was in high school from a girl who was going through a hippie stage (which obviously didn't last since a few months ago I spotted her shopping at the butchery with her boyfriend ) and I just mentioned that most leather probably comes from animals that were killed for their meat anyway, so we can just throw their skins away or make something out of it - which is much less wasteful, sorta like turning fruit-peels and vegetable scraps into garden compost rather than it winding up in the dump I'll stop wearing leather when the world stops eating meat
I mean, come on, these guys go to a biker gathering. What the hell they expect?. Yeah, promises that they would never wear leather again and an apology. Lol. I feel sorry for the boys, but they should know better.
I know some bikers; some of them fit the stereotype of the tough fella with a long criminal record, but others are just normal, decent, working people. One thing is for sure, you do not mess with their bikes or their leather. I bet they had a hell of a fun taping the kids to the trees.
